Rick Ross: #1 Hottest MC In The Game

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

Drum roll please. According to MTV, Rick Ross has been crowned as this year’s Hottest MC In The Game Congrats to the Bawse.

Whether on his own singles (“You the Boss,” “I Love My Bitches”) or on tracks that he was featured on, the M-I-Yayo MC turned in multiple unforgettable performances. “Ima Boss” was technically Meek’s song, but the casual listener may have missed that fact. Lil Wayne’s “John” was basically a remix of the 2010 Ross track “I’m Not a Star,” and on the summer anthem “I’m on One,” Rozay flexed his muscle alongside Drake and Weezy.

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

    RICK ROSS PAID MTV FOR THAT #1, MEEK

  • recordpusher

    Officer Officer Officer….

  • PAUL DEAN

    with no platinum album

  • PAUL DEAN

    gold in 5 weeks for jeezy

  • Ali

    this is just bullshit. this guys sucks, his flow is wack and his lyrics are awful.
    this is probably the worst list i’ve ever seen

  • PAUL DEAN

    mmg da only niggas that brag about they tapes going gold and platinum…. ross said his mixtape went diamond hahahahahahahh

  • Tucq

    i would’ve thought he would have been #3, though i’m not mad at this. to me, drake is #1, wayne is #2, because those cats came out with high cd sales, and ross has yet to do that. and i put drake higher than wayne because wayne’s album wasnt universally applauded.

  • Rapfan

    This is disgusting. No mention of Eminem or Royce at all. Ross paid for all these, i dont know who makes these judgements.

  • http://youtube.com/eniyi04 Niyemortal

    Blasphemy

  • The Great One

    Him before Kanye? Kanye dropped TWO albums and one won a grammy. And what have Jay done in 2011 but have a baby? NOTHING! Kanye killed him on every track on WTT. And Wiz year was in 2010 his buzz died in 2011 all his fans are white anyway. Jeezy should replace Nicki spot why? Real Is Back was the hottest mixtape of the summer…. Yeah he pushed TM:103 back since ’09 and dropped it in 2011 and went gold not many people could do that. Meek before Cole? At least Cole has an album out….take that back a GOLD album out.

  • COLD DEATH

    “MAN, I JUST HEARD MY CHECK TO MTV WAS CLEARED. I’M HONORED TO HAVE PAID FOR MY #1 SPOT.” *WINKS AT YN WHO’S BEHIND THE CAMERA*

    HATE ME NOW!

  • Hip-Hop Fiend

    This fat fucker is wack. His lyrics ain’t shit. He never had stong record sales. Drake and Kanye put out quality music.

  • Tim Lee VA Stand Up

    THE WORST LIST I HAVE EVER SEEN IN MY FUCKING LIFE. YOU GUYS FUCKING SUCK DICK.

    THE FACT THAT YOUR POSTING THIS AS IF YOU RESPECT ANY OF THE DECISIONS MADE ON SAID SUBJECT IS FUCKING PREPOSTEROUS, THIS ENTIRE LIST IS A FUCKING TRAVESTY. PLEASE STOP RECOGNIZING THIS AS AN OFFICIAL LIST.

  • Brick

    I don’t know why everyone’s up in arms about this list. We’re talking about a list made by a network that within that last couple of years has only been profitable off the exploitation of young Italians and white trash pregnant teenagers. MTV stopped caring about music back in ’04/’05, so this list, IMO, holds no merit whatsoever.

  • zmz

    Brick speaks the truth tho

  • Hip-Hop Fiend

    Sway loses all credibilty.

  • richard

    ahha who the hell is big sean and why is he in there?!? id put mac miller before him got way sicker hits and is constanly puttin out music. No em in the list? shits garbage

  • Donn

    Brick and zmz = same person

  • Maniak

    Jay-Z could eat the last 5 easily. MTV don’t know shit about Hip-Hop.

  • Belize

    Wheres Ace Hood, Fat Joe, Pitbull, and Snoop Dogg?

  • baous

    UGH!!

  • zmz

    Donn and Sway = same person

  • Derek

    how the fuck is he number 1? Shaheim reid bias much….

    HOW THE FUCK THEY SLEEP ON NAS???????? NASTY WAS A FUCKING HIT!

    WHERE ARE THEY NOW?

  • M.T

    LOOOOOL. im honestly surprised 2 chainz wasnt on this list. How is Ross at #1 tho. ? He released self made which was garbage and had some mediocre features. The only good thing he dropped was Rich Forever and that was hot mostly cuz of the features. This list wasnt based on anything. They probably just drew names from a hat.

  • STINKMEANER

    Rap Radar is officially dead to me. ya’ll dont get to have opinions if your opinions are this bad.

  • STINKMEANER

    oh i gotta apologize to rap radar, i thought this was your personal list, but i see its MTVs. nevermind the shit i said above

  • RealHipHopBack

    WYF HAAAAAA

  • FRIED CHICKEN, MAC & CHEESE, CATFISH, GRITZ, CORNBREAD, WATERMELON, KOOL AID, SUNFLOWER SEEDS, & MALT LIQUOR

    Nas will never be on this list because he a nigger. Remember Eminem top this list, and Nas has yet to make the list once.

  • Black Shady

    was expected

  • Donn

    Shout out to my impersonators

    Second, when your talking about HOTT MC’s, Ross constantly put out material, Im not even a huge fan and honestly if I hear one more fucking Ross song with the same beat I’ma kill myself but I can honestly say, where ever I went , I heard Rick Ross. Niggas want to discredit Drake cus he sings, ok that’s cool, lyrically he raps mostly about women and fame, we can all agree to that, Ross’ subject matter and poetic lyrics make his stories vivid.

    Discredit Ross for being an officer, if you want. But if your going to discredit Ross for that then discredit all the other rappers who buy rented cars and jewelry and brag about shit they don’t have, exaggerate selling a grams of weed with selling cocaine, like honestly, half the niggas who rap today are exaggerating their stories so u can fuck off with that argument. Kanye beats everyone in quality music but he did not do enough to be considered hot. If this was top RESPECTED MC’s we’d see Kendrick Lamar and Cole higher, but its not. Its HOTTEST. And u cant deny Ross is every fuckin’ where!!

    Third this is a fucking LIST, made by ten ppl. Ten ppl out of how many Americans?? U can make ur own list and put fucking Waka at the top for all I care, it doesn’t make ur list any more valid than MTV’s or the average Joe down the street cus we all will have our personal opinions. Bitching and crying won’t change our personal views

    #DONE

  • The Nicca

    ross is on the list cuz his producers made good work

    drake is on the list cuz he is a jew

    kanye is on the list cuz he is a fucking genius

    nicki is on the list cuz everybody wanna lick her big titts and eat her big ass and tight pussy

    wayne is on the list cuz he is a retard and so are his fans

    wow I see no one here can think objectively, they just want they fav rapper on the list… How would EM, Royce, Pitbull, fat joe, snoop or Nas be on the list, they did nothing in 2011… And yes Take Care was an almost perfect album…

    I got no respect for this list …when Nas completely destroyed Ross on triple beam.. and made him sound like a nicca w/ down syndrome

  • #NotHatingJustSaying

    I heard Rick Ross playing on French radio this summer when I was visiting family this summer. Apart from Kanye no one deserved the #1 spot more then Ross. Who gives a shit if he’s officer Ricky, he might not be a real gangster but thats what makes him the best studio gangster rapper out right now. Cuz its like watching the Godfather, Scarface, and all that gangster mafioso lifestyle in your ears. He does it better then Game, 50, and any other remaining mainstream gangster rappers.

  • smv

    WELL DESERVED..LOOK AT ALL THESE DUMBASS HATERS MAKING MULTIPLE COMMENTS UNDER DIFFERENT NAMES LOL.. IF I WAS ROSS I WOULD REALLY GET A KICK OUT OF READING U CLOWNS BLOG ALL DAY WHILE I GET BIGGER N RICHER LOOL NOBODY MAKING BETTER MUSIC THAN THIS NIGGA

    black ppl dont listen to ross.dude has never even touched gold.fuck this fat nigga.and mmg was unknown a coupl mnths ago.how did it get this known so quick,huh?some1 is forcing them down our throats.i’m yet to hear any1 in the hood blasting some ross in their car.where did this dude come from?no1 talks about him at all but out of nowhere he’s hottest mc in the game?getthafuckoutofhere you fake ass niggas!
    :(

  • Batman

    Wheres Eminem? He had Hell: The Sequel which went Gold, Lighters (2x Platinum), I Need a Doctor (2x Platinum), 2 Super Bowl ads — flipped the script on Chrysler’s fortunes, had two albums certified Diamond, murked everyone on the BET Hip-Hop Awards Cypher, had numerous sold-out shows.

    THis list is a joke.

  • Wizz

    Man this list is bullshit! Nothing but fake ass dudes. Where is Em and Royce? Em had 6th best selling album last year and Recovery came out in 2010!!!
    Then you have the best hip-hop group ever invented in Slaughterhouse(Crooked I fucks everyone up) yet not mentions?? Smh. Dudes can eat anybody in the game.
    Then you got T.I. Who had a good comeback with his mixtape and his collabos and nothing??
    Then you got Saigon who had the best 2011album,one of the most lyrical dude ever!
    You got Lupe who had a great year!
    Nas and Em are 2 names that you HAVE to put on every list!
    Last but not least we got Jeezy who gave Hip Hop exactly what was needed.
    WHERE ARE THEY?

    The only one who deserves the place is Drake,but he pisses me off cuz he is a bit pussy to beef. I advice MTV and you stupid ass fans to go and listen to Joe Budden – Who Killed Hip Hop

  • The Nicca

    who gives a flying fuck about that list, dont let them manipulate your opinion, everybody got his own list… for me the first three places should be:

    1. kanye west
    2. tech n9ne
    3. common

    but thats my opinion…

    so fuck those lists, make your own!

  • bullfrog24

    LOL @ Meek mill being hotter then j.cole

    and LOLOLOL@ Rick Ross being number 1. You can literally copy and paste any ross 16 on any song. He doesn’t ever switch his subject matter up. If he’s not working with Justice league its always the same type of beat.

  • Gorilla-Killa

    Lmao wtf. Yeah Ross has a buzz but dude is an ex officer I dunno why the fuck people don’t talk about that. Everyone hides that fact.

    This list is dumb as hell, and the people that made it are jokes. How the fuck is Ross over Drake? The nigga didn’t even drop a solo album during the past 12 months, Drake dropped “Take Care” a platinum album, with platinum singles, that people are still bumping daily across the country. Rick Ross dropped “Rich Forever” and the most talked about song on that entire mixtape was easily “Stay Schemin'” and guess whose featured on that, and EASILY stole everyone else’s attention with his verse? Drake should’ve been #1, with Ye at #2. Ross could’ve been at #3 I suppose, but this was really dumb. And the fact that J. Cole isn’t even on the list, is a travesty, because he’s definitely hotter than Wale, Wiz, & Meek Mill right now. I’m pretty sure this list is fixed, notice how the Big 3 out of MMG all made the list, with their leader at the top of it

  • wow

    He is the hottest mc in the game… u clown internet nigaz need to recognize, like someone on the panel said his marketing is great… we can argue drake but everything else is legit… u nigaz want wayne up there because he gave drake a contract, might as well throw birdman there to …Kanye killed himself bcuz he didnt fully promote his solo project… hot is saying consistant and ross is the most consistant guy dudes like ye when they workin on an album u dont hear from them ross is here everyday with someone new be it a viral, a feature, beef, or the mmg roster… n what is an mc? a rapper right ok so half of take care is singing , carter 4 had “how to love”, nicki minaj is a singer also… this list is pretty accurate

  • Kemosabi

    In 2011 going into this year whether anyone likes it or not Ross is the hottest in the game. It didn’t say the GOAT. As far as growing as an artist year by year there is no artist that is a better example of that in any genre

  • novakaine

    all of you putting lyricsts for the hottest mc contest is like saying pac is top 5 pac was by far not a lyrists its about creating a movement obviously he mite have low record sales obviously he gettin doe if he could afford all these checks he is supposedly writing and he must be gettin clout to beable to pay for 3 of his artists in the top 10 Ross is a rapper with average lyrics but phenomable beats and good marketing skills

  • okucci

    fuck this shit. ross sucks at rappin and its obvious. this list is bullshit.

    Really J.Cole Didn’t Even Make THe List If I Was Running MTV here’s how it would look:

    4. Big Sean
    5. Wale
    6. Drake
    7. Tyga

    YA’LL GETTING WORKED UP ABOUT AN IRRELEVANT PAST TIME. I understand if this was 2001 or something. They’re no longer a force in Hip-Hop. #truestatement.

  • HipHop-Head

  • williamleroy

    WOW! Sorry Cole but apparently meek mill and minaj are better than you are right now. Black and yellow came out two years ago, so remind me why wiz is on here again. This is like ESPN’s not top 10! Who else do you have in front of him the walking commercial from “Blue slide Park”.

  • tre

    look at these dumb fags hating on Ross.. Ross is by far the hottest who the fuck is Kendrick Lamar? i’ve never heard no one bumping his music nowhere, ive never heard his music in the clubs i’ve never heard a car pass playing his music.. Ace Hood by far had a better year than him lool Hustle Hard was playing everywhere it was a gold single

  • Rick Ross cant rap

    ARE ALL OF U FUCKING RETARTED. HE CAN NOT EVEN RAP. WHAT ABOUT LUPE? NAS? KENDRICK LAMAR? I CAN NOT BELIEVE U WOULD CONSIDER HIM TO BE EEN IN THE TOP 1,000,000 RAPPERS. FUCKING REDICULOUS.

  • Osirus

    Can you guys be logical for a second. Take away the fact that your favorite rapper is not #1, And that the artist u think had the best album isint number 1. The List has two important elements ppl arent grasping: “MTV” – meaning this list is according to and based on criteria by MTV and “Hottest MC’s”- meaning hot according to their rating system. Stop getting so emotional based on their decision, stop hating on the list based on their criteria because it doesnt make any sense. I mean Rick Ross has done a good job staying ringing all year and in one year he made a label and made two stars….who BOTH made the list.Ross took the time to build with them and the man was so all over the place he got sick. You have to give it up for him. He was not a cop, he was a correctional officer -someone who helps you get out of prison, not someone that puts you there. Besides were living in an age of child soap opera stars becoming rappers(drake) and rnb singers claiming to be the hardest on the mic (trey songz, chris brown,justin beiber) So what do you expect?

  • gregsimmsjr

    I agree with this ranking. Right now, Ross is running radio.

  • Mr. MonopoleeMunny

    Drake shudda been #1….He beat the Sophomore Jinx an delivered an EPIC album!!! Rozay dropped alot of HOT Verses but none of his SOLO records were hot enuff to catapult “GFID” to an actual release date…… “I’m On One” was the hottest song this yr, even hotter than Meek Mills “I’m A Boss” although both featured Ross he WASN’T the most important on either record. I figured this out ppl wanna HATE on Drake an HOPE that he gets phased out somehow but what ppl fail 2 REALIZE is…………………DRAKE CHANGED MUSIC: RAP MUSIC, R&B MUSIC, POP MUSIC, Rick Ross hasnt done any of that with a 3 album headstart

    I dont understand at all cause he has no album out since 2010…. he has NEVER gone platinum…. you could say it was his mmg album but that didnt even go gold and had no songs to even crack the top 20!!!!! you could mention a handfull of songs that were hot some his some other ppls he was featured on but did it show anything new from the boss? no!! and did it sell?NO!!!!!! they may love him for whatever reason but he in no way deserves #1, maybe he did in years past but this year i feel he falls in somewhere at 9 or 10 if hes lucky….i was very logical in my explanation so please try and prove me wrong

    I never bee so mad a list before, the so called “brain trust” is a bunch of fucking idiots. The guy in the Blackhawk beanie was trying to say Nicki deserves to be higher cus she has a fragrance out. Get the fuck outta here. Ross ahead of Drake? j.cole not even on the top 10, and Jay not top five. Everybody is right MMG payed off MTV. I want my 30 mins back; fuck you mtv

  • Larry

    the real question is why is mtv still putting this list out? they dont even play music on their network anymore.

    ROSS = THE GOAT, KEEP HATIN BITCHES

  • Al

    Did any of you even look at the criteria? Ross is everywhere. He is also the reason Wale and Meek made the list. MMG makes new songs and a video each week. Each member brings something great to the table. You’ve got reps in over 4 cities. Ross is building a empire. trickling down from didy and ciroc, to wingstop, to MMG. Look at the Rich Forever mixtape! Who gets those kinds of features? Only the hottest in the game. And if you wanna complain about record sales go ahead. 50% of waynes sales were most likely regretted.. I didn’t like the carter 4 at all.

    I’m just wondering here, how is Meek Mill higher up than Wale ? Wale is better both, talent-wise and record-selling-wise. I think that Wale should’ve been 7 & Mill could’ve been 10. Would’ve make a lot more sense.
