Sharp as a tack for March’s issue of L’Uomo Vogue, here’s one of the reasons why A$AP believes he should have been ranked higher on MTV’s Hottest MC list.

A$AP Rocky’s got a fuckin’ problem. While on Power 106 in L.A. he said he was upset about securing the eighth seed on MTV’s Hottest MCs list. Below is a transcript of why he felt he deserved the number one spot.
All my videos are shitting on any hip-hop video out there, let’s be honest. The reason why everyone is wearing gold again is because of your boy. Everybody’s wearing diamonds. I’m the one that who made the John Lennon shades with the glasses—everybody wearing it now, you see what’s going on now. C’mon, who brought gold teeth back? Let’s be honest…Honestly, I brought it back in a dramatic way. I made braids hot. But, let’s get off trends. Let’s get off trends. How about that? I’m the first artist who grew enough balls to say, “I listen to Geto Boys, Three 6 Mafia, Bone Thugs N Harmony, N.W.A. and Wu-Tang at the same damn time, what?!” And I’m influenced by all of them. What?!..But moving aside from the fact that I broke boundaries with not only that, but what either rapper is on the cover of Vogue? Forget trends, let’s get off trends. Lets back to the music. Who brought double time back? Who was rapping like Bone? Nobody. [Raps] Ok, whatever. [Raps] Who brought that flow out? I don’t even use it no more. [Raps]Everybody rapping like that., now y’all not even going to notice that? Its frustrating when I’m number eight. Don’t put me at all.
Clearly, Rocky doesn’t lack confidence. With a platinum top 10 single, and number one debut, he deserves to make the cut. But breaking boundaries? Cut. It. Out. Diddy and Jay-Z both have Vogue covers. Gold will always shine—especially in the mouths of Southerners. As far as flows go, Z-Ro, Em, Busta, T.I., Ludacris, Bun B, Freddie Gibbs, Yelawolf and others utilize similar patterns. Remember folks, there’s nothing new under the sun. MTV’s list concludes this Thursday.

From Harlem to Hottest, A$AP Rocky occupies the eighth seed on MTV’s MC roundtable. At the end of the day, rhymes pay.
From the Rick Owens leathers to the Balenciaga finery, there’s no denying A$AP Rocky is a certified fashion killa (you can check his influence in other rapper’s closets). But the Harlem upstart spits more than designer labels from that gold-plated mouth. He followed his lean-drenched mixtape, Live.Love.A$AP, with a chart-topping debut that shows off his versatility and a penchant for crossing state lines when it comes to flow.
