Big Sean #6: Hottest MC In The Game

Big Sean pulls a swerve and lands at the sixth spot on MTV‘s list. Sorry, Kanye. When the members of MTV’s Hip-Hop Brain Trust sat down to discuss the year’s rankings, the Detroit rapper initially had the #8 spot.

Rap fans can argue all day about which MC got the better of the exchanges […]
