Kanye West: #3 Hottest MC In The Game

[vodpod id=Video.4749261&w=425&h=350&fv=configParams%3Did%253D1650152%2526vid%253D589728%2526uri%253Dmgid%253Auma%253Avideo%253Amtv.com%253A589728]

Kanye was actually the fourth Hottest MC In The Game at first, but was bumped up a spot. G.O.O.D. call, guys.

“He’s basically putting out a mixtape on the radio,” MTV News supervising producer Sean Lee said during the Hottest MCs roundtable discussion. “These songs are throwaways for his album. He’s taking this beat from here, this feature on here, let me get this person on here, and putting them out to the public. And the public is consistently responding to these records.”

    lmfao at jay-z being number 2

  • Tmoney

    Kanye should be number one, hes the most unique artist out today, and he never has a bad song cmon son

  • God’s Son

    looks like CAMEL takes a back seat to the white boy again

    nobody will ever top the white boy, he IS the king

  • Belize

    Good job Ye.
    Shawn’ll be #2, so that leaves Mr. Mathers bein #1. :D
    How predictable. Congrats tho, Kanye.

  • Dashing

    Jay should NOT be #2 considering that it’s been a whole year since BP3 came out, but Ye’s been MIA for a lot of the year so maybe that makes sense. 1 month from now and he’ll be the #1 MC.

  • God’s Son

    @tmoney

    kanye hasnt put out his album in a while, yes i know its coming, but this list is before it.
    besides, kanye would only move up 1 spot. more people love eminem than kanye. em is not a racist. kanye is…

    Kanye shouldn’t have been number 3 number 4 was good. I admit the GOOD Friday songs just kills everything any artist did this year but think about it Kany has only been hot this year for the last two or three months. If we are talking too mcs of this year Kanye wasn’t around for most of it and Drake was so I feel they shouldn’t have changed it

  • Dashing

    @God’s Son, Hov was #1 last year and as I recall the “white boy” didn’t make the list because Relapse was kind of garbage. In 6 months I think Hov will be number 1 again. It’s an evolving list.

  • God’s Son

    @dashing

    relapse was ok, but recovery is almost 3x platinum. guarantee kanye doesnt sell more than 500k first week. his album is weak since we already heard half the tracks. em’s album was leaked 2 weeks before n is still selling. plus they didnt include eminem on that list because it brought MTV controversy. controversy = ratings, get it?????

  • Android

    Ths is fucken ridiculous! Are these ppl serious? Do they remember the excitement for G.F, WTT n MBDTF when they were announced? This man is no.1!!! Eminem caters to ppl who dont really follow hiphop GTFOH! AND A CAMEL? Lupe was right , we want the old mtv back.

  • mac DIESEL

    THE LIST IS WUT I PREDICTED!!!! IT’S ALL ABOUT THE HOTTEST RAP ARTIST, NOT THE BEST RAP ARTIST!!!! U MUFUCKAS NEED TO UNDERSTAND THAT SHIT!!!! CUZ IF IT WAS ABOUT THE BEST LYRICIST/MC, NO WAY IN HELL HALF OF THESE ARTISTS WOULD BE ON THE LIST WIT EM OR JAY!!!! DUMMIES!!!!

    ….AND MY VACATION IS DONE!!!! I’M READY TO START SHITTIN’ ON U HOES AGAIN!!!! HA!!!! SHOUT OUT TO THE mac DIESEL IMPERSONATERS HOLDIN’ IT DOWN WHILE I WAS GONE!!!!

    DON’T HATE ON MY OPINION!!!!

  • city8732

    He should be number one next yr then…kinda sucks that his album leaked tho.

  • King Izzy2West

    Im a Kanye STAN 4 LIFE and i love HOV but Kanye shuld be number 2. not number one either cuz this really was em’s year

  • Campbell

    Think about it is anybody killin kanye lyrically..not really unless somebody else is ur favorite…he da best producer..and one of the best rappers..so all of that combined makes him undefeatable like wayne and eminem u cant say anybody is better than them in any way

  • Jam

    This was eminem’s year I think if he and kanye battle through the year kanye should of won because em is a good lyrically and thats really it his songs and video arent really special its not something i could listen to over and over again. Eminem appeals to the 10 year olds and he not even goin for the real hip hop fans. Kanye said that even though all the songs have been played it doesn’t mean those are the real songs he may use different mixes and other such things.

    i think kanye should be # 1 cause he seem,s to be very good lyrically.
