Kendrick Lamar Crowned ‘Hottest Mc In The Game’ By Mtv Us
Kendrick Lamar has never featured on MTV’s Hottest MCs list, but given the success he has experienced so early on in his career, it is hardly surprising that the Compton MC debuted on the list at no.1. Music fans were expecting to see some of the Young Money crew top the list, especially since Kanye West, who came in at no.7 (and was 'bothered' by it), claimed Lil Wayne was ‘one of the no.1 rappers in the world’…
The top two positions were instead taken by newbies in the game, who have been undoubtedly putting the work in, whether it be on features or releasing critically-acclaimed albums.
Kendrick said to Rap-Up of the list: “It is very important for hip-hop. I love it. I love that they have debates like that. We need that. It is competitive.”
Check out the top 10 in its entirety below. What do you think of the list?
1. Kendrick Lamar
2. 2 Chainz
3. Rick Ross
6. Big Sean
7. Kanye West
8. A$AP Rocky
10. Meek Mill
