Rick Ross: #3 Hottest MC In The Game

With solid guest appearances and his album God Forgives, I Don’t under his belt, it was only right that the hardest working man takes the number three spot. Only two left.

“When you talk about some of these cats, it’s a quantity-versus-quality thing, and that’s not the case with Ross — he has both,” said MTV‘s VP of Music & Talent Programming Strategy, Yomi Desalu. “Ross is out there putting in work.” Not only did Rozay drop his gold-selling, #1 Billboard album God Forgives, I Don’t, he also rallied his Maybach Music troops to release the compilation Self Made, Vol. 2. Of course, who can forget that he gave out a pair of mixtapes for free: Rich Forever, at the top of 2012, and the jacking-for-beats-style tape The Black Bar Mitzvah, in October. Combine all of that with a string of features on hit records like Usher’s “Lemme See” and French Montana’s “Pop That” and it becomes increasingly difficult to deny the MMG mastermind.

    I came on this blog to hear a new guest verse from Method Man, and see a DMX trailer, and this is at the top of the page, seriously….whoever is responsible for this list and put ross on it and at #3, just do the culture a favor and go kill yourself, you’re just dumbing down the gene pool at this point.

  • WestCoast

  • BBGUN

    So T.I. Doesn’t make the list. When tip got out of jail he hopped on two tracks a blew those artists up. (Magic by Future and Spend it by 2 chainz) look at those artist now. Where’s the love?

    YOUR LIST IS PURE BULLSHIT!!!!!! LOL

  • it’s the roc

    can’t knock it, although sometimes i wonder if rick ross is hot or if he’s just flooding the game with so much shit (songs, visuals, vlogs, etc) that it just seems like he’s hot. his level of visibility and the numbers he does never seem to match up, unless you’re talking about mixtapes

  • stuart scotts eye

    Please tell me lil wayne will not end up 2nd…his verses are hella weak…2 chainz deserves 2nd more so than wayne…this list is not very accurate…either way k dot is the top mc
