Jay-Z: #6 Hottest MC In The Game

[vodpod id=Video.16104576&w=540&h=350&fv=]

With his successful collaboration effort with Kanye, countless business ventures and sold-out concerts, one half of the Throne takes the numero six spot on MTV‘s Hottest MCs. YN demands a recount.

“If you talk about the Throne, yeah, top five, no question. But Jay himself? From January to August, what was going on?” asked Rahman Dukes, MTV News’ director of hip-hop news, pointing out Jigga’s inactivity apart from WTT. “Kanye was moving.”

Previously: #10 Wale l #9 Wiz Khalifa l #8 Big Sean

    We might as well call it a day, we all knw Kanye is gonna be at number 1.

  • ZoomZoomDad-Otis
  • CoolC

    no if they put ross before jay z its lights out

  • MRJAY7

    This list is shit. I agree Jay was low the first half of the year…… SO HE COULD DESTROY THE SECOND HALF. I’d rather have a HUGE album, WORLD TOUR, Grammy nods off of 6 months of buzz than a mediocre album ( Wiz, Wale, Big Sean) and spread it out over the year. Jay 6 months > The Lists whole year. …… And if Cole ain’t in the top 5 this ” Brain Trust ” is a ” Brain Fuck “

  • NYC

    so jay-z is only 1 spot ahead of Meek?

    HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHAHAHAHHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

  • LilBigMeech

    I officially cant fuck with this list anymore

  • herohiro

  • belly

    1. Ross
    2. Drake
    3. Kanye
    4. Nicki
    5. Lil Wayne

    like i said yesterday. no jeezy smh @ mtv

  • Chris

    THIS LIST CAN OFFICIALLY GO FUCK ITSELF.

  • herohiro

    only one question if em was 1 last year and not going to make the list this year does that mean big sean and wale are better then him?….im confused

  • ZoomZoomDad-Otis

    lmao@If they put William, Little Aubrey, Nicki, Mrs. Wayne Williams(Birdman’s wife). Ahead of Jay-Z. I don’t know whether to laugh or cry.

  • 8UWIN

    lil b should be on this list I’m serious I can even defend that statement

  • herohiro

    this list is ass ass ass ass ass ass ass ass….

  • required

    lmfao

  • Q

    This list ain’t shit…..1st J. Cole doesn’t even make the list, he’s better than sean, wale, wiz and meek and then Jay at 6….These niggas all need to be fired. He’s easily top 3 period.

  • Hip-Hop

    This is pure bullshit!!!!! How he not in the top 5?? Weezy DID not have a better year than Hov. Watch Drake, Weezy & Nicki make the top 3…smfh

  • imsodope

    HOVA

  • http://aprettiproblem.wordpress.com aPrettiProblem

    Do they release a new mc everyday?!?!

  • TVA

    Even not on my Stan shit they bugging with this. To me personally the list goes

    1) Drake – Album sales, features, tour, impact
    2) Kanye – 2 Albums, movie accompanying solo album, tour, impact
    3) Jay-Z – Album, tour, impact <== His impact is still greater than anyone else on this list – The craziness surrounding his babies birth has more impact than some of the rest of this list alone
    4) Ross – Mogul moves, compilation album, mixtapes, impact, features
    5) Wayne – Sales (although I don't really believe them), Album was underwhelming a bunch of rehash beats and weak lyrics, Mogul Moves, Impact <== Carter 1-3 made me a believer I now don't know what to think since he's sober.
    6) Nicki – Sales, Impact <== If you can get some of the other hottest acts in other genres doing youtube's singing your records you have impact (i.e. Selena Gomez and Taylor Swift doing Super Bass)
    7) Wale – #NoDaysOff & #Ambition literally (2 mixtapes, solid album, compilation album, freestyles, mini mogul moves with BOA), ubiquitous singles all year – it was a straight hustle game
    8) Cole – More albums sold than Wale, Sean or Khalifa although they had bigger singles and more singles. Still under the radar in comparison to those 3 but their fans didn't go to the store and cop 2-5 copies apiece in a recession to assure he won. Grind Game + Friday Night Lights and winning with Underdog status
    9) Sean – Big singles, didn't quite pan out in album sales but his impact with the singles and features is undeniable and the album was solid
    10) Wiz – Sales wise I believe he's behind the 3 I put on the list above him but he's relevant although I think it's more for Amber at this point than any music he's dropping, mini mogul moves with Juicy J signing, movie/movie soundtrack, album is not my favorite and he admits it wasn't his normal effort but it had an impact if for nothing else Black and Yellow

    I can't give you a spot if you didn't drop an album so Meek Mill and 2Chainz can't get a spot in my opinion but they are picking up crazy momentum for next year if they can drop something solid in 2012.

  • CoolC

    No jeezy Wht the fuck is this list kill all of these niggas this has to be the worst list i ever seen in my fuckin life jayz number 6 wtf

  • Poetic Assasin

    If Hov was number 5,4,3,2 or 1 y’all would still complain… Just make ur own list and be happy

  • Jaymalls

    WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW…. Really MTV???????

    InB4TheNext100Comments

  • bry from boston

    I dont get it J.COLE sucks!!! Hasnt had one dope record, has no buzz, maybe his mixtapes were dope before he got signed?? Why do you all lick his ass!! Jeezy and j.Cole fuckin blow and put out lame albums. Jay is my fav rapper alive but he doesnt deserve to even be on this list WTT is an absolutely terrible album. The Throne put out a bunch of club type electro pop songs following the current trend of music, they did it to stay relevant!!!! MBDTF was years ago almost. I dont care what anyone says, wheather hes a complete liar… ROSS DESERVES #1.

  • GAYSON

    dumb list… ppl dont get caught up into this bullshit….

  • bbe4eva

    i dont kno wut order but tha top 5 gonna be: ro$$,wayne,drake,nicki,and kanye or maybe jeezy might slip in but i doubt it…

  • http://hovknows.com ericd

    Hov doesn’t have to be ‘moving’ to be hot. He’s playing chess from the throne.

  • GAYSON

    mtv is trolling

  • Jaymalls

    Hold oN…. they really gonna put Nicki ahead of Jay-Z?????

  • Collar Cali

    Kanye should be #1 then. He’s the only person with 2 Grammy nominated albums AND he’s been progressive. Ross, Nicki, Drake, Wayne. The rest of the top 5 in order.

  • HOVA

    JAY Z number 6? Ok this is pretty real, I respect this list.

  • hip hop is dead

    i think we should all write MTV and tell them to stop doing the list, cuz its obvious that nobody wants it, if jay z is number 6 im scared to see who’s number 1

  • HOVA

    JAY Z being the greatest MC all-time isn’t even debatable anymore. He’s lasted through generations and today is still a top 10 MC. HOVA is #1 best MC all-time by far, who ever is at #2, there is a huge gap.

  • Collar Cali

    TBH I wish we could exclude Nicki from the Hip Hop category entirely, she was big off sub-par pop stuff. Superbass was my song, but that was her only decent song last year. She hasn’t been lyrically hot since Monster, Hello Good Morning remix.

  • Umm…

    Wow, I’m very surpised at this one. I’m also guessing this means jeezy didn’t make the list which is some bullshit. The fact TM 103 dropped alone should have gotten him on this list. As far as music he put in more work than ross last year. I mean did ross even drop a mixtape last year? And do I even need to mention sales? And no i’m not a jeezy stan/ ross hater, just callin it like i see it. The ATL got snubbed, as always. smh

  • Pissed

    Now I know this is straight bs. How are dudes who haven’t even had HALF the career Jay has had, or even half the skill as an MC gonna be higher on the list then him? MTV, face it, hip hop left you guys when you cancelled yo MTV raps. The rest of this list will be all wack young money artists. BS.

  • damone

    wow! number 6… MTV U LOST!

  • Truth83

    i bet they move jay higher during 1-5. Cause they gonna come back to it and say “WTF”

  • Realniggashit

    BS

  • http://www.ohzonelayer.tumblr.com OMZ

    Jay-Z at number 6…?????? WTF is this!!! Hov is the greatest rapper alive. He has been in this game for over 15 years and continues to remain relevant. Jay should be number 1 and Rick Ro$$ number 2..- Rich Forever is a dope mixtape and GFID should be one of the best albums of 2012!

  • Black Shady

    So far……except for Jay-Z…I dont see how Cole didnt make the list.

    this is pure garbage. fuck mtv

  • James

    Um jay z knew he had a baby on the way . This list is fukin just opinions eminem is the goat. Highest selling artist of the decade and he wasnt even rapping for 4 years of that decade. I went to ems concert in Sydney and lil Wayne was his opener. That shows eminens status. No homo just stating facts. Fuk rick Ross fake fat nigga fuk Mmg

  • dwight

    Ahaaaa why you mad? Elliott wilson

  • http://thebrimstoneballet.blogspot.com Sean

    Yeah- Like everyone else said (or should of said), Jay-Z became a dad. He’s arguably one of the greatest on the mic so lets not worry about him being number 6. I seriously doubt he gives a shit.

  • http://thebrimstoneballet.blogspot.com Sean

    Also, I really wonder if lyrical ability counts as being hot now.
    Hot means two million shit freestyles over one mixtape or album you’ll still be listening to in five years.

    I doubt KRIT and Danny Brown will be on this.

    Ahh why am I even commenting on this bullshit.

  • http://crunkatlanta.weebly.com Crunkatlanta

    Nicki should not be on there…b/c she is too new

    1. Jay Z
    2.Eminem
    3.Ross

    5 Drake

  • uhuh

    ^
    bahhahahaahaa ROYCE

  • Devante

    Outside of WTT. Jay-z hasnt done shit

  • suckit

    How the hell can Lil wayne be higher than jay? with his crap album and horrible features. FOH.

  • Hip-Hop Fiend

    Ok help me if I’m wrong cuz this is getting confusing as fuck. I thought this was supposed to be the top 10 Hottest MC’s In The Game. They pick the 10 rappers from a perticular year in this case 2011. So they should be judging only of what an artist did in 2011 no other year right? If this is true how the fuck is Jay-Z at #6? WTT was the most talk about album the year, I’m glad they didn’t put The Throne at 1 spot but Hov should be top 5. J. COLE BELONGS ON THE FUCKING LIST. MTV WTF…

  • Money man

    @Suck it.. Lil wayne had a bigger year than Hov by far. You can hide behind Kanye but we will find you.

  • http://www.twitter.com/hollywoodmizzle Javon Lee

    TVA your comment was so fucking dum and everybody going talking about Wayne this dude put a album together in like a few months after being release from jail, Jay z and Kanye worked on WTT for over a year lil wayne Tour still grossed more money than Jayz and Kanye and they spent way more money to make there album than Wayne did so stop haten and show the man some respect.

  • Money33

    Jay Z tryna hide behind Kanye West, well we still found you.

  • Money33

    Dont gas yourselves Lil Wayne had a way way way hotter year than Jay Z.

  • http://google.com Young Skate God

    Wow jay-z is number six,I can’t believe it.I’m assuming Drake or rick ross is number one then.

  • Real Life

    @Suck it. Lil wayne is by far ahead of Jay Z. kanye holding Jay Z’s downfall.

    Lil Wayne’s year>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Jay Z’s

    “The Carter 4″* = 2X Platinum
    “How to Love” = 2X Platinum
    “6 Foot 7″ = 2X Platinum
    “She Will” = 1X Platinum
    “John” = Gold

    “Im On One” = 3X Platinum
    “Motivation” = 1X Platinum
    “Strange Clouds” = 1X Platinum
    “The Motto” = 1X Platinum
    “Dirty Dancer” = Gold

  • http://rapradar ultrakid

    TOP 5 AS OF RIGHT NOW
    1.Drake (hottest rap singles, hot album, nice album sales )
    2. Jay-Z ( the throne album —-> Tour, hot singles -n*ggs in paris, gotta have it*, hot features rihanna -“talk that talk”, young jeezy -“i do” are all over the radio hearing jay-z everywhere now, grammy win)
    3. Kanye ( 2 albums within a year: the throne album—-> Tour, hot singles, Dark twisted fantasy album, helped big sean on “marvin gaye* single, 4 grammy wins)
    4. Nicki minaj ( super bowl appearance, grammy performance, nba all-star game, hottest singles on itunes, highly anticipated album)<—-she's all over T.V
    5. lil wayne ( RECORD SALES ) lack-luster album though, a couple good singles :She will, Mirrors

  • Real Life

    I am Still Music” tour grossed $47 million and hit America, Africa, Australia, & Europe.

    3 MTV Video awards
    2 MTV Europe Awards
    Won 3 out of 5 B.E.T awards
    Won 5 out of 16 B.E.T HipHop awards

    Then his artist Drake, Nicki, Tyga killing it on the side. Niggas don’t fool yourselves. Weezy by far YMCMB the hottest MC!

  • Acapella

    What was Jay doin from January to August? Ummmmm, tryna make a baby wit his wife, Beyonce?

  • Man Eff Rease!

    MTV is funny.

  • 1oPOwer000

    Jay Z is no close to LIl Wayne Kanye Rick Ross Drake and Nicki. He was only a feature on WTT and thats about it. Dude is a no no nowadays

  • a0r1an

    1.This list is listing the hottest mcs in this year
    2.This list in not who is the better rapper
    3.Jay-Z and Kanye had the best album of the year but other than that album Jay didn’t do anything in the hip hop game
    4.Drake should be number 1 even though Kanye will probably get it

  • Mario

    will this abortion of a list just end already? This is the most and blatant display of trolling since fox news channel.

  • oakland73rd

    Bet anything #1 will go to Rick Ross or Drake has to be one of the them 2 just watch mark my words oh yeah and FUCK MTV YALL DON’T KNOW SHIT ABOUT HIP HOP

  • Real as it Gets

    SNOWMAN >>>>>>>>>>>> TOP 7!!!!

  • iDSGB

    First off Jay-Z is my fav rapper, his rating is about right for THIS list being that its MTV. BUT his verses alone, not even considering the production but his verses alone on WTT killed anything came out last year. Only person to come close who were mainstream are J.Cole and Kendrick, shout to Em too (and they are not even on the list!). He actually held down WTT, only lyrics that stood out from Kanye was “She said ‘Ye can we get married at the maaaaaalllllllllll”lol, Ye did his thing too. But in the end I understand this is a hot list but “But try writing 16’s bars, while running 16 businesses, all the while showing these lil punks what the business is.” Shout out to CRIM!

    @1oPOwer000 @Money33 jay z my fav rapper but he did not do shit this year besides WTT , we’ll see what happens in 2012. Kanye came out with two albums in one year. Jay z’s last album was in 2009, it is not a question about jay’s downfall, he just hasn’t been putting music out, that’s it.

  • ICUP

  • http://radiocanthearu.blogspot.com RadioCantHearU

    Undoubtedly two of the biggest artist’s in Hip-Hop, Jay-Z & Kanye West, announced in late 2010 that they were going to put out an album together, and when the titled was finally announced it was anything but humble………

  • Hip-Hop Fiend

    Big Sean even said in an interview that J. Cole should of been on this list.

  • Jdot

    Lmao this whole list is seriously a joke. How is Jayz one spot down from Meek Mill? And they been fucked up from the begging for leaving Cole off. I think Cole should be in Meeks place. I’ve heard meek mill on the radio one time my whole life. His mixtape was okay and that’s about it. Jermaine has sold more albums than Wale, Big Sean, and of course Meek. Wiz should be lower on the list.

  • Donn

    Yea this is shocking but Jay-Z besides “The Throne” album hasn’t done shit. This is the HOTTEST MC’s of the year. Not the most lyrical, not who YOU think is the hottest. Jeezy is no where to be found outside of the internet honestly. Check the charts? “I DO” officially got hot when, in the pass month. Too late for Jeezy to make this list. Plus Jeezy’s album came out when?? Exactly. He came in too late. His album got shelved, then pushed, then pushed back again, then pushed back further and then it dropped. C’mon. Jay-Z rode Kanye’s coat tails this pass year and Jay-Z is my favorite rapper of all time. The whole Throne album was Kanye all day. He is 80% the THrone and if Kanye would have dropped that album by himself he would have done the same #’s without Jay.

    Kanye kept Jay relevant when he wouldn’t have been otherwise. Cole should be higher than Jay honestly. You guys are judging this by the fact he is a legend. In that case Nas is a legend, Eminem is a legend, how many other legends put out music but you guys ignore. Jay didn’t do shit besides ride Kanye’s cape for the pass 6 months. He’s lucky to be on this list at all.

  • Dell

    I wont be tuning in to the rest of the list.

  • hova sucks

    hahahahahahthoahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha jay z stans maaaaaaaaad, he did suck

  • CoolC

    @donn where since jeezy is no where to be found but on the internet where do u see the 7-10 at on the internet jeezy had a bigger year then ross when he did 233k first week if yall want to be real ross had a couple ft. on tracks tht where hot without him…. name one song tht ross made hot by his self ill wait

  • TiMz

    Kanye, Wayne, jay, drake, Ross, nicki, wale, Sean, j. COLE!!! wiz….arrange em yourselves

  • uche

    damn where wud eminem be on this list?

  • Jax

    J Cole = #1 overall album, outsold #’s 7 thru 10 on the list, received a grammy nomination, #1 song on rhythmic radio, had two singles on the Billboard overall charts, had his own U.S. and European tours, his mixtape single In The Morning got big radio play, he was on four hot features that all charted, and he had songs in two tv commercials!!!!

  • uche

    sway is a confused man, today he calls em the greatest, 2ma he calls jay the greatest. get a grip man

  • http://rapradar JADatsyuk

    I’m seriously dying of laughter. HOVA at 6? Damn, I’ve barely commented on this list but holy shit. ONE ahead of Meek Mill? Co-sign at Zoom Zoom Dad-Otis. Yeah, he only had one project, WTT, but the 2nd half of the year he dominated. Putting YMCMB counterparts ahead of him, especially lil GAYne is pathetic. Don’t let Hov get in his zone. He’s gonna kill 2012. Blueprint 4 and POSSIBLY WTT 2. Its over after that.

  • SmokeYou

    LMAO… no no no you are doing it wrong MTV!

  • M.T

    lol@the comments.
    2chainz is in the top 5. Ross is at number 1.

  • Mag

    I agree with Jay’s placing. The only thing bad about this list is Meek at #7. He shouldn’t be on the list period.

    My top five:
    5. Nicki
    4. wayne
    3. Rozay
    2. Kanye
    1. Drizzy

  • Steve

    Nicki Minaj is going to be higher then Jay Z which is just stupid within it self. Kanye should be number one on this list and Im saying that because he won 4 Grammys and his two works where by far the best two albums out this year. MBDTF and WTT was better then fucking Take Care I dont care which sold more the first week. People are starting to be turned off by Drizzy and i would argue that Cole was a better Drake this year period.

    1.Kanye West- Best two albums of this year and the hottest tour.
    2. Rick Ross- Rich Forever was great and hes been killing it. He built Maybach and there better then young money by now.
    3.Drake- Commercial success of Take Care and his current tour is just going to kill it.
    4. Jay Z- He is the GOAT period stop hating and WTT regardless of what some of those stoogs said was a great album with actual songs about real shit.
    5. Nicki Minaj- I personally dont want anything to do with her but she sells and did really well this year.
    6. Lil Wayne- If anyone can sit here and say the Carter 4 was the best album of the year go somewhere. It was well subpar but Wayne still made moves.
    7. J Cole- His album was pretty good better then what i expected and he has a ton of buzz.
    8. Wale
    9. Big Sean- im a fan but finally famous was alright not his best work really. The other finally famous mixtape where much better.
    10. Wiz- Rolling papers also not his best work really. The mixtape was better but black and yellow was a hit.

  • Mj

    ^^^ lmao word

    I tip my hat to kayne this year with his albums and 4 Grammies. Bur gov ain’t don’t shit. And expect Ross drake wayne and kayne in top 4

  • http://rapradar mitch

    i predict da list to look like this:

    1. kanye
    2. lil wayne
    3. drake
    4. nicki
    5. rick ross ( ross might be higher on the list cause of meek & wale )
    .

  • Dell

    When Blue Ivy was in Bey’s belly she had a HOTTER 9 months then Wale, Wiz, Meek, and Sean. Thats not even a joke.

  • SickWidIt

    Royce should of got in the nominee’s not the list it’s self but the fact he went from selling 12,000 albums to 500k even if was with Em is major and it brought Royce to the mainstream not forgeting he wrote verse’s for Dre,Diddy ect too he shouldn’t of been overlooked with that been said Eminem shouldnt be on the list not a big year for him! if he’s in top 5 MTV fucked up

  • http://HAHAAH Kay

    SO IF THIS IS WHO WAS HOTTEST IN 2011 what is ROSS DOING HERE JEEZY DEFF HAD A BETTER YEAR AND HAD BUZZ ALL YEAR WITH HIS MIXTAPES AFTER MIXTAPE THEN TM103 AT THE END……. MANNNN THIS IS SOME CORNY SHIT… BUT AYYY THO IS IT REALLY ANY REAL PPL WHO TAKE THIS LIST SERIOUS????

    WHAT IS WIZ DOING THERE? WHAT DID HE DO IN 2011 MUSIC WISE….. rolling papers was a huge flop wiz even admited him self that…ok cabin fever mixtape was the only good shit

  • mac DIESEL

    JAY AT #6??!!! HE SHOULD BE IN THE TOP 3!!!!

    …….BLASPHEMY!!!!

    DON’T HATE ON MY OPINION!!!!

  • http://HAHAAH Kay

    wale meek big sean wiz… let them drop a album right now and NON off them cats will Do 233K first week like tm103 did smh naaaaa this is some pure comedy shit… jay-z before ross??? hahahahahahahhahahhahah

  • http://HAHAAH Kay

    only thing that can chill this shit is to PUT KANYE nr 1 spot

  • stephen

    i dont think this list should be called “Hottest MC’s in the game”

  • MJ

    BUSTA RHYMES IS THE GREATEST OF ALL TIME
    OTHER RAPPERS R PUSSY

  • 1oPOwer000

    Jay Z’s lheadline this year:

    1)Featured on Kanye West’s Watch the Throne
    2)Demonstrations for him Selling T Shirt for Occupy The Streets movement
    3)Featured on Mr Nice Watch and Talk that Talk
    4) Shutting down of 40/40 for bad health and safety standards
    5) That Glory song for his lil kid

    How can you defend this dude, he didnt even do that much. I am sorry, he aint going the most no-more. YMCMB is going the most now.

  • Mr.Rager92

    This List sucks now, boy Kanye better be #1

  • Mr.Rager92

    Wayne better not be #2 either Ross or Drake deserve that a

  • Peace nah

    I hope Lil Wayne takes #1, he is my favorite rapper of all time.

  • ceelos

    OFF is the general direction in which I would like this list to FUCK

  • L4U

    Everybody they put in front of Jay Z is on his dick. Smh

  • DG

    One of the biggest problems I have with this list is who is on the committee. Other than Sway it’s a bunch of fucking nobodies. Aside from the fact that they are a bunch of cornballs (nice pom poms) who really gives a shit about what MTV has to say about music anymore. When’s the last time you discovered an artist through MTV or gave a shit about anything they reported. The panel to make this list should be respected well known journalists, DJ’s and Producer’s without any affiliations to artists (Can just picture Khaled trying to sell on Ace Hood being Top 5)

  • shady

    Fuck everybody , Eminem is number one

  • #NotHatingJustSaying

    they just gave the rest of the list away, we just gotta figure out the order now.

  • The Fuck?

    WTF does MTV know about Music anymore anyway? This list is complete shit…

  • Bobby Deronck

    ok. for those who love hip hop, MTV is strictly mainstream. Hip hop heads know this. So the “Hottest”list is only going to have rappers who were all over mtv. So ya, this list really doesn’t matter.

  • steven

    This is jokeeee, Kanye deserves number one he won rap album of the year even thouigh his album is way past its hype, WTT was dope and im not even stan im js that your all massive Jay and Kanye haters on this site

  • Jay

    After reading the comments, I think everyone can agree that having Meek on the list is premature. He had an outstanding year, but up against the heavy weights of the game he only had a mixtape and a few singles. No one will cry if he falls of the list.

    J. Cole deserves to be on this list his album was one of the best year, sales and the Grammy nomination proved that. He and Meek should switch places on the list.

    Jay had an amazing year and anyone who went to see The Throne in concert will agree that, the concert was by far the most entertaining! Jay’s solo sets were classic! Who else could perform ONE song almost a dozen times in a row, and still blow lid off the stadium.

    Anyone else notice how the MTV Hip Hop “Brain Trust” is missing Shaheem Reid, probably the most credible Roc supporter. No wonder Roc Nation is getting straight up disrespected this year!

  • Joe Nasty

    ****SPOILER ALERT**** DON’T READ IF YOU DON’T WANT TO SEE THE REST OF THE LIST

    1. Lil B (hit after hit)
    2. Slim Dunkin (RIP)
    3. Bizarre (don’t forget his Nicki tribute song)
    4. V Nasty (carried Gucci Mane on the rap collab album of the year)
    5. Ace Hood (being #5 is part of his promotional package from last year)

  • bigske

    Bullshit, IF I AINT BIGGER THAN B.I.G, THAN IM THE CLOSEST ONE!, not #6 on some wack list from ppl who are paid to be critics and say shocking things to get ppl upset like jay-z is #6 on MTV’s hottest MC’s list. if lil wayne is anywhere higher on the list than J than i know yall are on some dick riding YMCMBbullshit.

  • GLB

    “Hovito Exclusivo”

  • seanj

    HOW JEEZY NOT ON THIS,

    ONE OF THE BIGGEST ALBUMS OF YEAR.

  • Enigma3000

    How in the hell is Meek Mills even close to Jay? Why in the fuck would Jay be in the bottom 5. This just explains that if you got a dance and smoke a lot of weed, you relate to artist who talk that shit. That team Sway got, they not as tuned in to the streets or “the industry” as they think. Oh, Kanye better not be TOP 5. It should be… (lyrically and influential, not just some dumb shit spit every bar!)
    1. Jay
    2. Jadakiss
    3. Papoose
    4. Nas
    5. Andre 3000
