Wiz Khalifa: #9 Hottest MC In The Game

[vodpod id=Video.16090576&w=540&h=350&fv=]

Seems like MTV had a change a heart and did a switcharoo with Big Sean. Due to two albums and sold-out tours last year, Taylor Gang’s H.N.I.C. cracks the #9 spot.

“First of all, he won the Hottest Breakthrough MC and really fulfilled the promise that we all knew that he had,” MTV News Senior hip-hop Writer Rob Markman said. “To be this young and have this many accomplishments, almost three albums in a year, you gotta give it up to dude.”

    Wait, what? Did you guys skip one? Cuz I know 9 dont come after 8. So was Sean number 9 yesterday then, and Wiz is number 8? Or the other way round?

  • G

    ^ maybe it’s a tie for number 9?? lol i was wondering the same shit.

  • MMG #1fan

    Lolll bullshit still no jcole

  • Donn

    Wiz did have a successful year. Dude is humble and laid back. Makes overall balanced music, pop, rap, good balance indeed. Cabin Fever satisfied his street fanbase and he delivered a commercial album that showed his evolution and diversity. Some lyrics were cheesy but he has more hits then misses

    Turn for the worst.

    Is it me of is everything that they’re praising these guys for, Cole has also accomplished, or even exceeded?

    Tours – Cole World ‘WORLD’ Tour Spanned over 5 months
    Record Sales – Well over gold at this point, dude said Wiz is leading the pack?
    Even Mixtapes – Cabin Fever….really? Cole Any Given Sundays got more buzz that that.
    Movements – Like it our not, Cole World is a movement! You can’t ignore his dedicated fan base.
    and LOL at dude hintin at 2Chainz having lyrics. SMH…

    I’m just saying, something really doesn’t sound right to me.
    Am I the only one?

  • Word

    Ohhhh ok I just saw what happened. Wait, WHAT??!?!?!?!? BIG SEAN WAS HOTTER THAN WIZ WALE AND COLE??? Fuuuuuuuuuuuuuccccccccccccccccccccckkkk no! This list is such trash! I enjoyed Wiz album a little bit, but even still, he had WAY more hits than Sean. Black and Yellow alone was way more popular than any song Sean put out. Why is Wiz number 9 and Sean number 8? This list makes no fucking sense. And then Wiz outsold Big Sean by a MILE! Wiz, Wale, AND Cole outsold Sean. What are these guys thinking?

  • Word

    I just dont get this list at all..Im not even talking about Cole at this point. They have Sean at NUMBER 8! How was he hotter than Wiz or Wale or Cole? Mixtapes (Cabin Fever, 11-1-11, Any Given Sunday all destroyed his forgetablle mixtape) movements? Taylor Gang is a way bigger movement than whatever shit Sean got going. He just riding Kanyes coat tails.

  • Your mother’s “friend”

    This whole thing just keeps getting more & more ridiculous

  • Word

    LMAO I just actually watched the video. Did you see what these niggas did? They voted Big Sean as number 8 for NO REASON. They just voted! Nobody even gave a clear reason why! All they said was “Big Sean held his own on the stage with Kanye and Jay” teh fuck?????? So that overshadows two platinum singles and over 600k sold on Wiz Khalifas part? These guys are so out of touch its ridiculous.

  • http://www.twitter.com/finaldraft VR

    BOYCOTTING MTV and this stinking list!!

  • Your mother’s “friend”

    Co sign VR & Word this list is bullshit, Cole was headlining his own World tour while sean was an opening act for Wiz, how is he hotter than them ?? coz he got on stage with Kanye the guy who signed him smh, if that’s the case then we might as well throw Cyhi on there seriously what is wrong with these people ???

  • Santa

    Did they say Wiz’s first song was Say Yeah? Who’s doing the fact checking around here

  • Santa

    damn off the top? KILLED that shit

  • Hip-Hop Fiend

    Switcharoo? Well can they switcharoo and put J. Cole on the list. I don’t give a fuck I will continue to bitch on this subject beacuse it thats crazy. I don’t even know what there voting on. I thought there were supposed to vote on the 10 hottest MCs in the game of 2011. Every year the round table have stupid debates they talk about artist first album when they drop there 4th album that year. Like Jay-Z was #2 in 2010 and he didn’t even have a album out that year. I just don’t understand, are we even talking about the same year?

  • Mook

    No Big Sean didn’t have a better year than Wiz…say what u want about rolling papers but it was a decent record…yeah kinda poppy but it still had great records and he stayed in his lane…

  • Devil

    PEOPLE SHOULDN’T EVEN COMPLAIN ABOUT THESE LISTS ANYMORE, SEEMS LIKE THEY DO THIS SHIT ON PURPOSE, JUST DON’T PAY ATTENTION TO IT AND NOBODY WILL BE MAKING LISTS WITH DUMB ASS RAPPERS ANYMORE.

  • Slim901

    I don’t understand their reasoning. They went from debating 2 Chainz’ and Wiz’ popularity to saying “Big Sean held his own on stage.” Wiz puts on a more entertaining show than Sean and Sean opened for him Wiz on his last tour…

    So how is the fact that Sean can hold his own on stage the reason why he’s higher than Wiz?

  • Jaymalls

    ^^^Sean Had his on SOLO tour after Wiz’s with no assistance really@ Then he started a new tour opening up for Trey. Wiz was “HOT” in beginning of 2011 but he is ice cold right now!

    Not Putting J COle on this list is really hurting whats left of MTV’s credibility!

  • Mario

    Took them til wednesday but they finally got one right.

  • Joeycrack

    Wiz khalifa don’t have a cosign like big Sean…wiz had one of the biggest hit of the year last year..had a number one that doubled big sean sales..wiz even gave him the beginning buzz before his album came out with the 2 features on cabin fever

  • Joeycrack

    But big Sean is hotter?

  • Mario

    Oh fuck I spoke too soon they fucked up again. 0 for 3

    This is why I’m a Wiz fan, because he’s genuine and can admit when he’s made a mistake or two evident with this statement he posted on tumblr:

    “I remember when i made kush and orange juice, I listened to it and knew I had created a new genre that wld change music.The mistake i made on Rolling Papers was thinking it was time to move on from that genre not knowing that it had impacted people so much. The album did great numbers, but creatively wasn’t my best work. No regrets though. We live and we learn. ”

    Wiz is ice cold right now but, is he really trying? He dont have shit coming out so of course hes cold. And they said he fizzeld towards the end of the year. Well, his album came out like early 2011 so why not? You cant tell me Sean had a better year than Wiz. Impossible. NO ONE would agree. Shit makes no sense. Sean flopped first week. No platinum singles. Even on twitter he not popping like Wiz is. The only aspect these guys said Sean outdid Wiz on was….stage performance? You kidding me? Shit, fuck an album then imma just tour all year and i’ll be the top 10 hottest in the game?

  • STINKMEANER

    @ Word made good points though

    This quote is straight to the point. MTV does this on purpose lol. They wanna test how much buzz they create for rappers.

  • M.T

    what credible list switches their decision on a whim like this? anyways 2chainz is gunna be top 5. im calling it.

  • Word

    n 2 chains is 11 he aint make it cuz his buzz only been up for bout 4 6 months just like asap rocky who i put at 12

  • Slim901

    @Jaymalls The fact is Sean has opened for Wiz and Trey, and the solo tour he on probably isn’t selling like Wiz’s. Who cares if his stage presence is decent if it’s still inferior to Wiz’s. I bought tickets for the Rolling Papers tour, and Wiz was definitely better on stage. That was their ONLY point for moving Wiz to 9.

    Sales:
    – FF: 3 gold singles. 300K units moved
    – RP: 1 3x platinum single, 2 platinum singles, and 1 gold single. 600K units moved.

    Big Sean: no awards
    Wiz: 5 nominations and 1 AMA “Best New Artist” win

  • Original Will
