MTV's Best Of The Best UK MCs Is Back!
This year we need YOUR input for us to decide 2013's best UK MC…
It’s that time of year again where we crown the Best UK MC of the past year!
The last two years has seen Wretch 32 take the highly sought-after accolade but this year we’re doing things a little differently…
We’re asking you to tell us who should make the coveted Top 10 which will be put forward to our team of MTV insiders who will choose this year’s winner.
How do you get involved?
We’re putting 40 of the best MCs this year up for the public vote and asking you to tweet us @mtvwrap with the hashtag #MTVBOTB followed by the name of the MC you are voting for. So if wanted to vote for Giggs you’d tweet:
E.g. “@mtvwrapup #MTVBOTB Giggs”
Your votes should be based on the following criteria:
BUZZ - street acclaim, press critique, spin off successes, mix tape hype.
CHARISMA – swag, personality, image.
MAINSTREAM RADAR – Is the mainstream talking about this artist, Radio 1, MTV, magazines, online, featured appearances with prominent artists etc.
MC ABILITY – flow, dexterity, song writing skills, uniqueness.
You can vote as many times as you like but voting closes 5pm on Thursday February 20 so get your votes in quickly! Remember these votes determine the final unordered ten, soon after MTV will arrange those MCs from ten to the all-important number one.
This year’s Top 40 Best Of The Best UK MCs contenders are:
Krept & Konan
Black The Ripper
Sho Shallow & Ard Adz
