MTV recently came up with a list of the 10 Hottest MCs. Here’s what they came up with:
1) Lil Wayne
3) The Game
4) Andre 3000
5) Kanye West
6) Young Jeezy
8) 50 Cent
10) Jim Jones
Before you start organizing a protest against the network, remember that the list ranks the hottest and not the best MC. That said, I still have questions about the selection criteria. Are they going by record sales? Street Buzz? Skills? Regardless, I have major issues with this list. Why is The Game ahead of Kanye if we’re talking about record sales? If street buzz is a major issue, how is Cassidy off the list? How is Common near the bottom if we’re talking about skills? Where’s Talib Kweli, Joell Ortiz, Lupe Fiasco, or Papoose?
What would your list look like?
