MTV Likes Pissing Off Hip-Hop Fans

I guess lists are good for media outlets because they stir up controversy, and garner attention.  That being said I feel like lists are retarded.  Especially when it comes to the whacky world of hip-hop.  It appears as if MTV selected a bunch of people with questionable opinions to come up with the 2010 Hottest MC list.

The problem with these lists is that they have to balance relevancy with who actually has talent.  We live in a day an age where having lyrical talent is almost second hand to your image and brand.  For example I bet the #1 artist on this list this year is Eminem.  I mean he had the biggest selling album this year, so that makes sense right?  Well not really.  It might have sold the most, but I thought the album was pretty garbage.  I would say that the hottest artist of the year was Rick Ross.  But a lot of people would say that he is a fraud, and a disgrace to hip hop.  My point is that it’s kind of all based on perspective.  Plus a dude like Waka Flocka is poppin right now.  Does that mean he is one of the hottest MC’s of 2010?  While I think Waka is highly entertaining I don’t think it’s fair to call him a hot MC, considering he is more known for his ad libs as opposed to his lyrical content.

When it comes to this list, I just feel like no one really wins.  Check a preview of MTV’s hottest MC’s of 2010 below.

    Sam is the biggest idiot on this site. Recovery was garbage? Your assessment of the current state in hiphop is garbage.

    Yep. People are pussies and refuse to say anything bad about Eminem, but his last album was just boring. But this just goes to prove my point that making a list of the hottest artists in hip-hop is retarded because you can never please everyone.

    First off lets get one thing straight this list is not about who the greatest of all time is, its who is supoosedly hot right now according to MTV so all ya'll niggaz need to calm the fuck down. Ya'll already know what the list is gonna consist of a bunch wack ass mainstream garbage rappers its the same shit every year so why do you guys stress it, and why the fuck do ya'll even entertain anything that SAM blogs about. Whovever you think is hot should be the only thing that matters, another thing ya'll need to get off eminems dick this is real talk dont get me wrong the nigga is nice but Recovery was ok and Rehab was trash dont be scared to say something bad about Em he still nice but those albums were garbage.

    I would agree that Relapse was kinda wack lyrically which was proven, but relatively low sales(for Eminem), but Recovery – isnt that the best selling hip hop album this year? It was dope, as good as Eminem show in my humble opinion. I really can't think of anyone that sold more this year. Relapse even outsold Ricky's first week even though it was out for like a month.
    Then u mention Wacka Flocka Idiot who cant put two sentences together. Hes got one poppin song or beat I should say.
