Every year, MTV does a poll to come up with the 10 rappers that are the hottest on scene, and they tagged it- Hottest MCs in the Game. This year's list is out, and it pissed some rappers off; rappers like A$AP Rocky and Kanye West felt they were meant to be higher up the list...A$AP even believed he was meant to be number 1 on the the list.
Anyway, bullshit asides, I think the list is very accurate if you put into consideration what the rappers in the top 5 have actually done in the last 10 months or so. And the list is not about having just ONE hit song that is tearing up the charts; album sales, guest appearances and other factors are looked into. Also, this list shouldn't be confused with the most lyrical rapper list, or the top 10 greatest rappers of all time...it is a list of NOW...the hottest MCs in the game right now. I'm saying all these cos I know how sentimental people get when they don't see their favourite rappers on a list. Check out the top 10 list below-
