Mtv's Botb Returns
We’re doin’ it again! MTV’s annual top 10 countdown of the best MCs in the UK is vastly approaching, and this year we need YOUR help. Last year, North London lyricist Wretch 32 took the crown as the best MC of 2012 (for the second year in a row), but who will come out on top as the best MC of 2013?
40 MCs are going up for public vote on Twitter – and we want you to pick the top 10. How? Simple. Tweet @mtvwrapup, the hashtag #MTVBOTB and your chosen MC. For example, if you want Krept & Konan to win, you’d tweet: “@mtvwrapup #MTVBOTB Krept & Konan”
When voting for an artist, keep the following criteria in mind:
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 much as you like, but just remember to do it fast as voting closes on Thursday, February 20. Once you guys pick our top 10, the MTV crew will get to work and put the chosen 10 in order to determine our no.1 MC of 2013.
Check out the list below and get voting for your favourite!
