#10 Meek Mill
#8 ASAP Rocky
#7 Kanye West
#6 Big Sean
That is part of the list people. The rest of “MTV’s Hottest MC In The Game” are announced on 3/7 on MTV Jams. This list made Kanye break his no interview rule to call DJ Enuff to not only say he thinks Wayne is the best rapper, but he also said he deserves more than #7. He went on to say,
They didn’t like the Cruel Summer album. And, I’m like its a compilation. It ain’t all rappers on GOOD Music. I mean Cruel Summer got “Don’t Like (Remix),” “Mercy,” “Cold,” “New Gold Flow,” all on one joint. And “Clique!” You can’t name 5 records like that on no album, but they wanted to diss me and be like ‘Oh, he did Cruel Summer and he can’t say he ain’t apart of it because he’s on 8 records.’Ain’t nobody bringing up that “Diamonds” remix verse. It wasn’t no verse in a year that was fucking with that verse! It’s definitely not based on a body of work, but possibly it could be, like, overall rap-MC-swag, you know what I’m saying. Sean is a great rapper, period. It checks all the boxes. What happens with these type of judges and people who are viewers, when you come in, I had the pink polo and the backpack, then I’m checking all the boxes for that Tribe Called Quest-era and J Dilla and all that, so they champion it. They don’t like Givenchy-Kanye. They don’t like Kanye in a kilt. They don’t like Kanye in a relationship. Yeah, I don’t think it’s them going really bar-for-bar. I said, “lucky I ain’t have Jay drop him from the team!” Ain’t no bar in the entire past 12 months that’s hotter than that bar!
Oh Yeezy. We’ll see if Kendrick, Ross, 2 Chainz, Jay-Z, T.I. and Wayne land.
ASAP Rocky also weigh in saying if he’s not #1 then don’t put him on the list.
