    @BDot did ross pay you for that vote? cause not only did kdot out sell him and NAS first week, but he did so with not even half the hype ross already has. Kendrick has also done mad features on the side that werent even mentioned, so it looks to me like you gave the MVP to MMG not the dude that spits real hip-hop. Not to mention kendrick hasn’t even released videos for any song on the album and very few of mixtapes, Ross releases videos of him eating weed nuggets and going to the hood for the hold me back video, not to mention every video he drops is the same. Gotta give the homie kdot more credit then that dude. HiiPoWeR.

    off* just a side note, GKMC just went gold, lets see once he hits platinum if u feel the same way

  • Scrilla[Gibbs the rip off DMX is garbage and will never blow he should just retire]

    UM WHERE IS THE GREATEST RAPPER OF THE 21ST CENTURY, JEEZY? EXPLAIN NOW.

  • Peekay

    WHAT?!?! A RapRadar employee picked Ross for MVP?! FOH! Surprised he didn’t pick Meek Mill for 6th Man. His album was not very good, nor was that MMG album. You said it b dot ‘Double R’ without even talking about their work.

    Kendrick for MVP. Lived up to the hype and made an amazing original album. What did Ross rhyme about? Cars, jewelry, hoes, money, blah blah blah… over the same boring beats. *yawn* I listened to Ross’ album about 3 times. I listen to Good Kid about 3 times a week.

    i love these debates. i think MVP should have gone kendrick, considering the TDE camp also has the formula for a self-made powerhouse. Kdot put up numbers on the grassroots level and word of mouth. plus he really connected with his own age group and the older heads. you aint hear nothing crazy bout him in the media. very respectable.

    LMAO at jeezy being the greatest rapper of the 21st century. Not even top 50. Hes a multimillionare but still cant find anything to rap about besides moving drugs. Gibbs can rap circles around the “Snowman” and was smart to leave CTE, Jeezy was limiting his creativity.

  • kappy

    Kendrick deffinetly deserved mvp. i dont get why no one brought up the fact that KENDRICK had the best verse on self made…

  • DoinTooMuch

    I’m not agreeing with any of this. And the fact that NAS wasn’t even mentioned makes this a joke.

  • Scrilla[Young Jeezy #1 hottest MC in 2012; Gibbs hottest rapper of 2055)

    @OZ Nigga u popped a molly before you typed that shit. Where the fuck is Gibbs’ classics or platinum plaques? Cause Jeezy has multiple

    disagree about that “Wayne-Mania” statement. Ross is still nowhere near close. Wayne had most requested radio songs, club hits, most requested on videos, topped the charts plus his album pushed over a Milli. then he brought out two of tthe biggest acts in hip hop of this era, and all that happened within 4 years. Ross’ fame only goes so far.

    Ya’ll kendrick lamar STANS remind me of ODD FUTURE FANS…..You guys are fucking ANNOYING.WE get it he can rap,Stop riding his dick PLEASE!!

    2012 was a very dissapointing year for hip-hop compared to 2010 and 2011

  • Da Business

    K. Dot for MVP!!!

  • SHORT BUS SHAWTY

    JUST A BUNCH OF ‘ELMOS’ TRYING TO FLEX THEIR ‘MANGINA’S ‘ !!!!!!!!!! SMH SO SAD.

    What does their opinion have to do w/ rapradar?

    With that said nobody said Nas Life is Good?

    I’m sure Nas will win a Grammy.On some commercial shit

    I see what their saying.How a lot of ppl don’t know about Kendrick when kendrick is doing numbers

    .I guess their basing this on radio play, sales, and exposure

    I can’t see another MVP but Nasir Jones this year

  • RIC FLAIR

    B Dot is right

  • the brain trust

    This was disgusting to watch. Kendrick was this year’s MVP & it wasn’t even close.

    B. Dot hates Kendrick (for some reason) & it showed. Couldn’t put his personal grievances aside & be objective.

    Ross flooded the blogs with viral videos of his man boobs, throwaway freestyles (think of his god awful Black Bar mitzvah) & an unavoidable marketing campaign (thanks to his Rap radar cohorts) & it failed. The hype didn’t translate into a hit record, significant sales or a particularly impressive album. I’d even argue that GFID is his worst project since Port of Miami. Plus, his sound & subject matter has become incredibly predictable.

    K. Dot on the other hand delivered big time. Features, touring, a hit record (check the credits, Swimming Pools is a hit) and of course, a gold album which received universal acclaim. A genuinely breathtaking project. All this with a minimal marketing (only one video out) and a buzz which genuinely spread organically.

    I can’t think of how many people I saw on twitter saying things like ‘Me & ma niggas tryna get it ya bish’ & ‘bitch dant kill ma vibe’. Kendrick was far more important to the culture this year.

  • GTFO

    He called himself a “Taste Maker”. That lets me further know this is a circle jerk.

  • Devante

    Lol Cyhi did claim the 6th man tittle before anyone..
    How is Future a 6th man? He plays the background to no one…

  • http://rapradar.com spliggidy splash

    Kendrick..easy

  • Chronic

    Are these niggas retarded?? Cause that’s the only explanation for how this conversation went down. 2 chainz (regardless of if you like him) deserved 6th man for his grind. And Kendrick shit on Ross sales wise and got people to actually listen to lyrics again. Ross makes club songs, Kendrick makes music…end of discussion.

  • really 23

    @GTFO

    lmbao

  • M.T

    i aint mad at 2chainz getting 6th man but ross over kendrick for MVP? HAHAHAHAHA are u serious? The reasoning behind that decision was sooooo weak. And bdot, u didnt even give a real concrete reason… fuck outta here.

    Picking Rick Ross , who put out the same sounding album he did last album, shows that you all are too stuck on predictable and safe music.

    Kendrick had no backing. Forget the west coast thing, there was no GOOD music, YMCMB, MMG etc backing for this kid. Only hip hop heads knew about him.

    My boy has given up on Hip Hop for a few years & now and then I give him a mixtape or album to check out and he’s like “nah” or “oh ok, this is cool”. I played him Kendrick’s album and he bought it 15 mins later!!!

    Kendrick is MVP for breaking though the same tired sound from MMG which is already played out and doesn’t do numbers at all. You guys are reaching with “youtube views” as a way to validate Rick Ross’s mediocre year.

    Y’all really lamed out

    Good work on sticking by the paint by numbers as your canvas for hip hop. Garbage. Basura
    get the fuck out of here with Rick Ross already

    yeah i can see 2 Chainz being 6th man, he’ll still be poppin in 2013, but for them to give Ross MVP is pure fuckery and confirms what everybody says about B.dot & YN being dickriders.

    Hmmm Rick Ross was outsold by Young Jeezy had his street credibility questioned cancelled a tour because of threats from gangstaz and dropped a disappointing mixtape (Black Bar Mitzvah) and he’s your MVP.HAAA!!!! Bullshit @B.Dot u know that’s bullshit

  • steezplati

    mangg thesee roundtable descusions are lame ass shit they mostly talk about rappers nott MCs shoulda gave it to kendrick

  • steezplati

    fuck more saless most ppl like shit music anyway

  • steezplati

    Combat Jack is the mann though dope radio show

  • WordThatsHowYouFeel

    Tell me he didn’t just add sales of GFID with MMG2 and have the audacity to say he’s almost at a mill but in the same breath say Kendrick is working off one? Since when can you count a compilation as a solo? That man is nowhere near platinum and will not get any awards. This is clearly what wrong with Hip-Hop just because you do features don’t make you hot good albums do Kendrick’s album is better than both Ross albums even tho one is a compilation. Stop trying to make him bigger than what he is.

  • Del

    Kendrick for MVP

  • L

    Self Made 2 sucked. That shit was not hot. Neither was G.F.I.D. Last thing Ross released that was hot was Rich Forever. Fuck Rick Ross this year man, he’s dying out and he aint gonna be shit at the end of next year. Just watch.

  • R

    Rick Ross was a CO so that should be deducted to any fantasy album he makes!

  • Robama

    Why cant these guys debate the actual music more? Enough gossip about the moves their making and the hype around it.. What a shame to see grown men vouch for Ross, dude lied and you still support him?? People still love that fake hip hop….

  • How do people make ross bigger then he is..i mean his artist sell more unuts then him..hes not even a housrhold name in pop culture..niggas tallk about this fat fuck like hes a em,jay,ye or wayne like seriously?? Get the fuck outtta here !!
