Ludacris: #10 Hottest MC In The Game

[vodpod id=Video.4699355&w=425&h=350&fv=configParams%3Did%253D1650152%2526uri%253Dmgid%253Auma%253Avideolist%253Amtv.com%253A1650152]

Here we go again. Today kicks off MTV’s Top 10 Hottest MCs In The Game list. Coming in at #10 is ATL’s own, Ludacris. Some names that had a big year but did not make the cut include Wiz Khalifa, Gucci Mane, Lloyd Banks, Bun B & Fabolous. This is going to be uh, interesting.

In March, Ludacris released his seventh album, Battle of the Sexes, and without seeming to try much at all, he made the case for why he should be a candidate for the 2010 Hottest MC in the Game.

    Hopefully MTV isn’t bias on the list this year.

  • DJ Game

    a list that is opinionated and should not matter. everyone has different views of who is the best. mtv is trying to generate attention and stir up controversy amongst fans of different types of musicians that some should not even have the luxury of being called that. take what you want from that.

  • Yooo

    Lloyd Banks really should have made the list. But eh, MTV are so out of touch these days anyway.

  • http://stoprapping.com RAPISNOTFOREVERYBODY

    ludacris raps on techno bullshit. Erykah Badu’s vagina for congress 2012

  • Yooo

    Also I can see already that they’re just basing this list onm what SOLD, they didnt acknowledge any lyrics or skill on the mic or quality of the music that the artist put out. They just simply ran a list of what theyve done this year without commenting on the quality of the work.

  • Yousef

    This list is bullshit. Always has been & always will be. Half of the people who make it on the list aren’t even MC’s!!!!!!!!!!

  • $$$Mike

    Ludacris? is mtv serious?

  • Citylivin’

    Fabs not on the list?…..Bun-B not on the list?….i just lost interest…..

  • llll

    Relax guys, its just a list…And Bun might make the list!
    And number 10 for Luda sounds reasonable because he has 2 platinum singles and one gold album and have performed in many venues!
    MTV didn’t put Em on last year’s list because he didn’t do anything, he just released and album and sat home, thats the idea of the whole ranking things. You have to be active to be on the list!

  • GTboy

    Yo man, when they talked about Banks, I was like he runnin for #1 not #10 … whatever .. Luda still ill, even if Banks my favorite MC right now. You gotta give to Mr.Hunger for more for having a big year, that’s not even done for him yet !

  • D-manded

    FUCK THE LIST FUCK THAT FUCK IT ALL EVERYONE HAS THEIR OWN LISTS THIS IS JUST SOME CONTREVERSY CREATION

  • still best rite now!!

    omfg!! The powers that that be, thru Luda a bone seriously!! where do ppl get dude havin lyrics? Just cuz hes a little better than most Southern rappers…he’s an “ill lyricist?? gtfoh!! all Luda has is a sped up flow sometimes & ppl thinks hes spittin. He has ZERO substance. “My Chick Bad” “Drop it Low” ? “like a parade…Macy’s” lmao a #1 album is half in part lucky timing. Theres 10 mixtapes i’d rock b4 I play ‘Battle of the sexes’ within the last year. smh let the fuckery continue….

  • Whowantwhat

    Rap Game is still fucked up. We got to many idiot judges on MTV and BET lying to the people.

  • http://poeticassasin.com assasin

    ludacris is the most versatile artist in the game- and Wiz and Bun B not making the list is foolishness

  • Stan

    Gay…

  • Truth

    You gotta be active and relevant. Luda was on everything and everywhere. I agree with MTV’s list. I think Em should have been left out last year. He wasnt active. Now he is so he deserves the #1 spot. Which he will have obviously. Nicki and Drake, Wayne, Gucci, Kanye will make the list

  • wickwickwack

    10 “hottest mc in the game ” not best mcs in the game
    luda had a shitty album but y all guys bought it …he´s a lyrical guys but he failed to prove it

    is mtv scared to do a “best mc/lyricist in the game ,only based on skills ?

  • mac DIESEL

    LUDA IS PART OF THIS CORNY POP RAP… HE GOT MAD SKILLS BUT HE NEEDS TO GET BACK ON THE RAP

  • http://twitter.com/youngshay112 Shannon

    I’d care more if the M in MTV stood for music. Felt the same way about the BET list. Drake is my favorite *at the moment* but no way did I think he should be above #10. He’ll probably come in at #3 for MTV, all the better to show more Sprite ads in between.

  • B. Digital

    Luda will never be in my top 10 and I’m from Atlanta.

  • datdude4life

    I just lost respect for the list. If Wiz didn’t make the list it’s not a proper list

  • Thank Me Hater

    Why didn’t yall post BET’s list?

  • teejay

    ludacris is less qualified this year than eminem was last.

  • Thank Me Hater

    WHOA!!! I feel that all of those artists NOT on the list had a bigger year than Luda….and I’m a fan!!

  • Thank Me Hater

    Well I WAS a fan before battle of the sexes

  • Certifiedone

    Wowwwwwww (Flava voice) Gucci wasn’t on BET’s list, and now he’s not on Mtv’s list Hahahah I mean ouch, poor cat.

  • smart dude!

    yes luda should be number 10 got that right, album sold, a couple hot singles, banks not being on the list is onpoint aswell, he only had one hot single and recent stuff have been good but theyre more promo than anything else, after the album drops then we will see, as for wiz khalifa hes gonna be big next year being left out should motivate him to do it, number 1 spot i give it to rozay but im sure alot of people will disagree with me

  • http://sargewp.blogspot.com sargewp

    fuck that!!!! banks should atleast knock waka flocka off the list, and fuck lil wanye he’s number 7 and waka is 8.

    i wonder who’ll they’ll give the #9 spot to

  • Toya

    Luda’s at #10? This list is going to be interesting indeed. It’s always interesting when the “experts” make their lists because a lot of bias is involved. I feel that BET’s list was pretty bias. (Sure Eminem got their #1 spot but it really annoying when even to this day, race is still a big deal to some people. And Young Jeezy and Rick Ross made their list.)

  • SCOTT LAROCK

    every year this list comes out and every year it causes some sort of controversy.eminem was not on the list last year but gucci mane was.i bet eminem will be number 1 this year judging on how mtv does there list criteria wise.remember the vibe magazine bracket about who the best was and that joe budden thing happened.everytime one of these things come’s out someone feeling’s get hurt.everyone has a opinion on who the best was just say you think 2pac was the best and say someone said jay-z was it’s a never ending battle that cant be one cause everyone has there own opinion.

  • Certifiedone

    @ Toya.
    Any list, if its from BET, MTV, or even VH1 will always be biased in some way.
    But at the BET list, My girl Chloe from Vibe straight out busted that one dude about playing the race card. Hilarious.

  • Ice Cold

    Yo Rapradar Where’s BET’s top 10 mc’s List?

  • Black Shady

    WTF. Banks shoulda been on the list

    are we talkin about HOTTEST MCs or HOTTEST MAINSTREAM RAPPER? MTV is so dumb!! you are really dumb…for real!

  • http://twitter.com/trilllmatic Trilllmatic

    Lloyd Banks, Gucci, or Wiz didn’t make the list? wow.

  • bk82

    Lloyd Banks all day !!!!!!!!!!

  • http://rapradar.com/ Chris

    Luda is so fucking underrated its unbelieveable

  • KanYeezy

    Luda can kill every rapper in the game believe that.

    but he’s cool with every rapper

  • budgefkuhgewf

    Canibus for #1 trolololol

  • Word

    Cosign @Thank Me Hater I was a fan of Luda before Battle of The Sexes that album was hot GARBAGE. Hopefully Ludaversal is better. And Banks should be on the list, I hope Cole is cuz he was kinda hot. Gucci not on the list? I bet you Waka is though…and he gonna be 6 or 7. He sucks but he had street bangers all year round so that has to be considered. These list suck but I like debating ‘em

  • # K!LLm@tic

    So when do we get to know who’s #9? Tomorrow?

  • Thats what im sayin!

    luda is whack now.

    and i bought my jeans on sale, with an additional 10% off……MAACY’s!!!!!!!

  • I.S.A.A.C.

    Luda had never made that list before?! That’s crazy to me. Not that MTV carries any validity with their rankings but doesn’t Luda have the most #1’s for a rapper, ever?

  • yo

    CHECK THIS KID OUT I GOT NO AGENDA REAL TALK HE MURKED JAY ELECTRONICA’S EXHIBIT C…. I DONT KNOW HIM AT ALL JUST TRUST ME HE MURKED IT. JUST SAW THIS SHIT ON YOUTUBE. NO LIES

  • bigjay2501

    I have no problem with Luda being on this list. I do think Banks should be on it though, But it should not have been either or. BOTH of them deserve to be on the list. Ludacris can rap!!!! He has lyrics. He just be on that bullshit at times. Battle of the Sexes wasnt that good if u ask me. But his singles got plenty burn. Plus wasnt he on Khaled’s shit? He has had a hot year. like him or not.

  • Kidd Billion@ire

    Drake will be top 3 (no dickriding)

  • D

    What’s Floka doing there. He shouldn’t be even considered.

  • Man man man

    CAN SOMEONE GET HOLD OF THE MUTHAFUCKIN BET LIST.. SMH

  • http://ineedm0ney.wordpress.com ineedm0ney

    These lists mean shit. The people putting them together dont know shit! Leaving off EMINEM last year prety much just proved they dont even deserve to get the honor of anointing ‘THE HOTTEST RAPPERS IN THE GAME”.

    Your better off randomly picking 10 people from the comments. Im sure any of us can create a better list then the one these tards will.

  • Kidd Billion@ire

    @Man man man

    Its right on BET.com homey

  • ZoomZoom

    FREE WEEZY… SMH RAP GAME FUCKED UP EVER SINCE HE WENT TO JAIL EVERY CAT THINKS THEY NICE LOL! DONT GET OUTTA LINE YOU BUM ASS WEAK BAR RAPPERS

    BUT CONGRATS LUDA (EVEN THOUGH I DONT THINK YOU SHOULDA MADE IT, BECUZ ALL YOU DID WAS PUT OUT THAT WEAK ALBUM FOR THE LADIES, AND NOT THE NIGGAZ!)

  • NoWonder

    EM should have been on there last year.
    He dropped a nr 1 album,sold the most albums in 09,Introduced Run DMC to the Rock Hall of Fame,had the best verse on Forever,killed wayne on Drop The World,Performed at the Grammys,won a Grammy for Best Rap Album,Won 2 Moonmen for Best Video and Best Male and performed at Mtv Awards,Performed at Rock The Bells and he had a cameo in the movie Funny People..

    That should have been enough to get on that fuckin list.Lets hope mtv have got their senses back,EM should def be Nr 1 this time!!

  • Sc_R

    Eminem then kanye then drake then jay then wayne then nicki then Ross then 50 then T.I.

  • Sc_R

    I can agree w/ @macdiesel cause this the one time u ain’t blatantly hating.. That’s why u ain’t even have your tagline cause that was a respectable comment LOL

  • Belize

    Maybe 4 years ago I woulda agreed on this. But Battle of the Sexes is pretty embarrassing. I thought everybody knew that.
    But apparently not MTV. EMINEM 4 #1

  • Chris

    What? Over Banks?

    Im trying to think who the rest of the 10 is then…..

    Drake, Rick Ross, Eminem, Kanye, Jay-Z (although what has he done since last year),

    after that it gets a little hazy

    Young Jeezy ?(although he’s so hot he cant even get his fucking album out, they’ll put him in), Jay Electronica maybe? (although he’s “cooled” down in their eyes) J.Cole then? (although he doesnt have tons of shit out), Vado? (too mixtape), Nas? (Never happen, although Distant Relatives was quite the touring show getting bigger) , Big Boi should be on there! (although who knows, Bun couldnt get in), The Roots had a great album but you cant just award Black Thought, Pusha T maybe? Freddie Gibbs? (Big EP and mixtape, but maybe not a household name for MTV) Currensy? (not that big). TI and Lil Wayne spent more time in jail than making hot tracks (although I wouldnt be suprised if these clowns had the shame to include them). The Dipshits have comeback but I dont know if one specifc MCs has been hot.

    Oh wait, the’ll give a spot to Nicki Minaj : / and B.O.B will get a spot (although his album wasnt great it produce radio singles on pop rock. Cause you know whats more Hip Hop than that)

    Well then thats the 10: Luda, Em, Ross, Drake, BoB, Jay, Kanye, Minaj and J Cole and Lil Wayne in a shameless addition.

  • AF1Colt45

    god damn idiots stop saying that bun b , gucci or khalifa will make the list , mtv mofuckas SAID IN THE VIDEO . BUN B , GUCCI and KHALIFA WONT MAKE THE LIST !!!! shit , dont mute your volume next time

  • ThisListisAJoke

    This list is a joke..who are these wack ass people at this roundtable..theyre not even sure if they want to vote..when he said who wants to vote for Luda at 10 they barely put their hands up and some of them did it just because others were doing it..Ludas album was TRASH this year..Banks and Fabulous deserve to be on this list…Fabs mixtape Threre is no competition 2 was way better than Battle of the Sexes…ENough Said MTV is not Relevant!!!!!!!

  • Mars

    trill og gets 5 mics and he aint even on the list? smh

  • DaMAN

    how did fabolous not make the list?
    he put out one of the best mixtapes of the year!
    KANYE AND J.COLE SHOULD NEAR THE TOP!

  • original will

    its funny how he doesnt make the list for Theater of the Mind but makes the list for That Bullshit he just released I dont think he should be on the list this year the past years yea but not this one I honestly think Lloyd Banks or even Wiz should be on there before Him

    cosign Teejay em sold the most records last year and wasnt on the list but luda makes the list with his lowest sales ever MTV logic is off and that BET list is crazy Nelly Shouldve been on that List Niggas can say what you want but Nelly was one of them niggas that Made being country look cool and he sold 9 million on his 1st try with lil known producers and his cd was dropped in 2000 the beginning of the decade he shouldve at least been 7 Like Drake is cool but dude is new and people act like he doing the unprecedeneted but its been plenty of artist who has done what he has or even better on they debut and they have no follow up You cant put a nigga on the list and his shit came out in 2010 and just went Platinum nowhere near multi or the 1.5 mark

  • http://www.tagged.com/pienman pienman

    dis list is soooo shit…

  • Android

    This is b.s. Christopher?!!! I know its hottest but ppl on the outside lookin in thnk best! BOTS was utter trash. Product quality has to count. Fab or Banks should be here. Watch em take no.1 too. Smh. If Rawse isnt top5, im done.

  • biggs50

    lol mtv jokes….luda lacks big

  • http://theurbancnn.blogspot.com MrUrbanCNN

    these lists are just opinions anyways. Everybody think differently. Luda is ill and deserve to be on the list but since Fabolous and Bun B isn’t on the list i don’t know who else should go up there

  • Stan

    Gay!

  • Haters are annoying–> Android, Mac Weasel, Lucas and others

    1. drake 2. eminem dont care about the rest

  • Mr RD

    Are people blind or just stupid. Ludacris is a sick rapper and always kills it. Shit like this is what bugs me out about the music business and people in general like come the fuck on. He has a fucking crazy year with all big songs and because hes not the hottest rapper in the hood he gets no respect. Get the fuck outta here. No one had more hits then Luda this year and probably only Eminem will come close once more songs of his come out.

  • CaniBlog?

    Nothing against MTV I understand the list and all but I COSIGN everyone who has brought up Wiz Khalifas name up and how he deserves to be on this years list. This dude just sold out a show in Boise Idaho! No you didn’t read that wrong I said BOISE IDAHO of all places I can’t imagine what his buzz might be like in the bigger cities like L.A., Chicago, NY, if we talking hottest MC in the game you can’t leave this guy out. BTW I’m not even really a fan of the guy I’m just stating facts.

  • Shooga

    This list is going to be retarded,like always.

  • truth

    why is this list even relevant? why is it so over-hyped? how is Bun-B left not included but yet has a 5 mic album? I know, it’s because people behind these decisions DON’T KNOW SHIT, yet we are entertained by the thought that they do.

    fuck the media.

  • theshyiet

    funny shit ive been bumpin luda’s shit n i can tell you he aint nowhere near an hot mc…..he has never bodied any shit….he makes whack music 4 white bitches…my chick bad n that type of crap…wacka flocka sucks donkey balls him and gucci are the most stupid thing to ever happen to hip hop….the south has many overrated pple like luda n jeezy n some awesome rappers like bun …….luda cant even kill t.i lyrically he is weak as hell

  • hater

    personally jay z n kanye shud be either no 1and 2 not in that order but jay z has 2 verses that none of these new whack rappers cant even spit..so appalled n that freemason verse n kanye has had the best year..eminem shud be no 3 because his flow has changed alot he is not as lyricall as he used to be.fabo should make it to the list ..lloyd banks i dont think so coz he sounded so whack on GOOD friday n santana bodied his shit .drake=an overused version of hov……he’ll get their coz he makes music for the masses his mixrtapes were good but album dint do it for me ..gucci =whack ass rapper,t.i he has some pretty good verses especially on deuces remx where only kanye n andre bodied him…n that track with ross who only had a good album because he put out some good artist n producers on the album yet his rhymes are so nursery…BMF=overrated crap…aston martin music he cut drakes verse cause it was way better than his stupid shit….pusha=GOOD music,j cole=lyrically speakin he has some good shit,wiz =shud have made it to the list,fabo=no compe was awesome…

    I am a big Ludacris fan. Ludacris`s music is dope man and Ludacris`s music videos are off the hook and some of the best rap & hip hop music videos out there. Hes just a talented rap artist period and his rhymes and his rap songs put him right at the top of the rap game. I agree though Lloyd Banks should be in the top ten too.

  • anarchy noire

    I think luda should have been 8, he has a lot of hits & he aint afraid to branch out…….da same guy who created Move Bitch (grammy nominated) and Runaway Love (grammy won) made number one songs with justin bieber & fergie
