MTV Hottest MC’s 2013 – Recap

Okay  so MTV’s “controversial” list finally is over. Honestly this list is just a popularity contest and although skill is a factor on this list it really depends on how “HOT” you are, what ever that means. I mean any list that takes into account Facebook likes and Twitter follower to determine the best MC’s is flawed to a point. Here is the list

1.Kendrick Lamar

2. 2 Chainz

3. Rick Ross

4. Nas

5. Drake

6. Big Sean

7. Kanye West

8. A$AP Rocky

9. Future

10. Meek Mill

Honestly I have no problem with anyone being on the list. All of these people made a huge impact this year. Whether their music is any good or lyrically deep is another question entirely, but you can’t deny these people captured the attention of the mainstream public and made some club bangers that people love to party to. If the only qualification was just how nice bars were then a lot of these people would be out of here, but were also considering club bangers, radio play, Twitter, Facebook, Media attention, cross over appeal and style.

That being said I do have a problem with the order I think it should have gone like this, going by MTV’s standards of course.

1. Kendrick Lamar

2. 2 Chainz

3. Drake

4. Nas

5. Kanye West

6. Rick Ross

7. A$AP Rocky

8. Future

9. Big Sean

10. Meek Mill

But hey it’s MTV you really thought they would get it right? Let’s get to the fun part. Who’s going to not be here next year? Honestly 2 Chainz Future and Nas. I say 2 Chainz and Future because people may get tiered of their particular sound. Nas because it’s highly possible he won’t drop an album this year which will hurt his case, that and he doesn’t do a lot of features which hurts. Next who’s likely to rise on this list?  I say Big Sean or Kanye depending on how their albums sound if their albums come out. Finally Who not on the list the year will be on the list next year? A lot of choices  for this one. Jay- Z  and Eminem are a locks if they drop an albums. J.Cole, Schoolboy Q and Joey Bada$$ are strong possibilities depending on the sound of their albums. I don’t know if they allow this but I think the whole Wu-Tang clan could be on the list. Apparently there working on an album for their 20th anniversary and depending how focused everyone is, it could be a huge year for the Wu.

My predictions for Next Year’s List.

1. Drake

2. Kanye West

3. Eminem

4. Jay- Z

5. Joey Bada$$

6. Kendrick Lamar

7. Rick Ross

8. J Cole

9  Big Sean

10. WU TANG  (or Schoolboy Q if they don’t allow groups)

What do you think though?

  1. Nice post. I learn one thing more difficult on completely different blogs everyday. It will always be stimulating to read content material from different writers and practice a bit one thing from their store. I’d desire to make use of some with the content on my blog whether or not you don’t mind. Natually I’ll give you a link in your web blog. Thanks for sharing.
