With Rick Ross’ verse being thrown off the song because of controversy, Wiz Khalifa takes a shot at the smash hit and it sounds like he’s back to his “Prince of the City” days. No telling if this is going to be the final remix but plan on a lot more rappers getting on this track.
A couple seizures and media complications with TMZ won’t be slowing Lil’ Wayne down any time soon. He’s back to work and just announced his next tour dates for the “America’s Most Wanted” tour. T.I. and Future will also be joining him on the road. Unfortunately no stops in Seattle, but maybe he’ll add some more dates in the process.

Birdman gives us a new single and brings a lot of his Young Money homeys to help out. So here’s “Tap Out” featuring Lil’ Wayne, Future, Nicki Minaj, and Mack Maine.
“She got that million dollar ooh!”
When it comes to MTV’s top 10 “Hottest MC” list, a lot of people would argue that it’s all about buzz and has nothing to do with actual lyrical skill. It’s crazy to see rappers like Pusha T get beat out by people like Future and Meek Mill. Don’t get it twisted, they’re great entertainers, but if you’re going to name a list “Hottest MCs” then it should be all about their mic skills, not hype. Here’s the list from 10 to 5, more rankings coming soon.
#10: Meek Mill-
Meek Mill comes in at #10 and a lot of people were surprised at first because he beat out super lyrical Pusha T. Even though Meek Mill does have quite the buzz going right now and has for a while now, does he actually belong above some of the best lyricists in the game. Guess the list is based off hype and sales which is what Meek Mill has always had a lot of. There’s no denying that Meek’s also got one of the hottest mixtape series with “Dream Chasers” also.
Future is also one of those artists that definitely doesn’t belong on this list because of lyricism. He’s mainly on here because of all the features and hit singles that he’s been on. “Same Damn Time” was an anthem for a while which turned into a super-remix and took over every radio station. Now that he’s wanted for every feature just like T-Pain was back in the day, it makes sense that he’s on this list.
#8: A$AP Rocky-
Now here’s a selection we can definitely agree on. Even though A$AP Rocky may not be known for being a metaphorical or over-your-head type of rapper, he’s definitely got flow and freestyles on pretty much every radio show he makes an appearance for. The test of a true MC has always been a freestyle and you can always tell that A$AP Rocky goes off the top no pen, no pad, no written material. His Bone Thugz/Southern cadence is also something that a lot of rappers try to replicate these days but don’t come close to. We’re glad that he’s on this list and feel that he definitely deserves it.
#7: Kanye West-
It gets really confusing when MTV puts this list together and ends up putting legends in a not-so-high spot. We all know Kanye West is one of the greatest and most innovative MCs of all time, so it’s weird to see him at #7 amongst all these rappers. It’s good to see that he’s on the list because otherwise MTV has totally lost it, but we feel that his spot should have been much higher with songs like “Clique”, “Niggas in Paris”, “Mercy”, “God Flow” and many more.
#6: Big Sean
Here’s another placement we can definitely agree with. Big Sean has been snappin on pretty much every track he’s put out or is featured on. Sometimes when rappers get as famous as Big Sean you start to see them get too involved with the money and slow down lyrically, but he’s stepped it up to another level where most rappers can’t even think about going. It’s good to see a rapper getting better and better no matter how famous he gets. Can’t wait to hear Big Sean’s next album “Hall of Fame: Memoirs of a Detroit Player”.
“Started from the Bottom” alone could place Drake in this spot. Just when everyone was looking for a motivational anthem to start the year off right, Drake delivered. He’s also been on plenty of select features lately to maintain a buzz but the true test will come when he’s done working on his next album. Drake will always be up there with the hottest MCs in the game as he’s never let his fans down and has always delivered lyrically and metaphorically. You can always sense the underlying message behind every Drake song which is another very powerful aspect for any true MC.
What better day to come out with a video for a song called “Love Me” than Valentine’s Day. Here’s Tunechi and his dudes Future and Drizzy. Dope video.
T-Pain and Future have been going at it recently after T-Pain’s Bugatti was supposedly used in Ace Hood’s new music video. T-Pain called him out for it by saying “Funny how the ‘new T-Pain’ has to use the old T-Pain’s car in his music video”. Now T-Pain was interviewed once again and has this to say about Future’s auto-tune career.
“I don’t think Future gets the technology… I don’t think he understands how it actually works. He’s writing great songs– he’s a great writer– as far as how he uses Auto-Tune… I think he’s thinking you just turn it on, and it happens.”
“A lot of people don’t sing with it, they just sing and put it on after, which is a terrible mistake. There’s a lot of stuff you’ve gotta know about Auto-Tune before you can start using it, because it’s the hot thing to do. But Future’s still great, he’s doing his thing.“
This song has been playing all over the place and is a great look for Ace Hood as he’s making his way to the top of the rap game with We The Best Music and DJ Khaled. So here’s Ace’s new music video for “Bugatti” featuring the oh so powerful duo of Rick Ross and Future.
Damn, Ludacris goes off on this track, not that everyone else doesn’t, but he killed it. Here’s DJ Scream’s new track featuring Future, Wale, and Ludacris. “Cee Lo”.
Ace Hood is starting off 2013 strong with a new mixtape and now he just dropped this major track with both Future and Rick Ross. Here’s “Bugatti”.
Future has been dropping a lot of tracks lately with some big names including both Drake and Lil’ Wayne. We knew he was up to something and in this case it was a new mixtape. You want this project.
