Drake: #2 Hottest MC In The Game

[vodpod id=Video.16114255&w=540&h=350&fv=]

With the release of one of the best albums of the past year with Take Care, Drizzy comes in as the runner-up on this year’s list.

Drake’s dominance is well-documented, from SoundScan success to extraordinarily extensive radio play. As an artist, the Young Money standout blends R&B melody and alternative sensibilities with an MC’s bravado. While still spitting bars with some of the game’s most highly regarded lyricists, his emotive writing style made it acceptable for rappers to dish out their feelings (though Common might disagree).

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

    RICK ROSS PAID MTV FOR THAT #1, MEEK

  • Mag

    Should have been #1 (Kanye #2)

    I like Ross but how he reached this level of stardom is beyond me

    Take Care was a great album. Drake carried most niggas songs. He did more enough to get the top spot. But they gave it to Rick Ross fat ass.

  • Tucq

    i thought drake should be #1 also………….. dude came out 700,000 the gate, all the hoez like him, and he’s on the radio the most…… Ross is the shit, but he’s (not yet) proven on the record sales tip…… ross will probably do high numbers this time around, though.

    Drizzy topped off Kanye West… well then its still YMCMB season.

  • Money33

    I think they gave it to Rick Ross to avoid the tension between YMCMB and Roc Nation .

  • Kemosabi

    Money 33 never thought about it like that. But I gotta say one thing. Toronto!!

  • Cray Fish

    Anybody surprised? Nope… MTV=Pop, and treats it’s content as such. It’s not about who’s the best MC, it’s about whose the most popular in the mainstream…I mean, why wouldn’t Styles P be on this list if not?

  • JERZZZ

    HAHAHAHAHBAHAHAHAHAHA R.I.P. CREDIBLE NIGGAS IN HIP HOP.

  • Tedd

    ye made it ok for niggas to “dish out their feeling”
    Kanye laid the groundwork for niggas like drake to prosper
    hiphop is so fickle and forgetful that you give credit to the wrong niggas
    Drake had a way better year than ross
