This will probably come as no surprise, but at long last Kendrick Lamar has been crowned MTV’s ‘Hottest MC In The Game’.
Over the course of the past week the hip-hop world has been set on fire by MTV’s ranking of the raps biggest names. Why is MTV doing this? Because Sway doesn’t work for YouTube, VEVO, or WorldStar, where everyone actually watches music videos now. The entire point of this list is to drum up controversy, piss people off, and get people talking. In that regard, it’s certainly been successful.
You could probably see this one coming when Kendrick gave a pretty relaxed and positive interview talking about the list. Prior to the the loudest interview we heard was of course Kanye who was pissed about his 7th place ranking behind his own protege Big Sean.
In case you missed it, here’s the complete list:
1. Kendrick Lamar
2. 2 Chainz
3. Rick Ross
6. Big Sean
7. Kanye West
8. A$AP Rocky
10. Meek Mill
You’re better than me if you understand how Future made it over Pusha T, but that’s just me.
Let us know what you think.
