That was a real list. Hottest Mcs isnt rated by best lyrical skill, its who is the most well rounded players in the game with record sales, popularity, improvement, relevancy, and business. For the most part, the list was on point, except for Eminem not even being present, considering he made his comeback this year.
Drake was high on that list because he’s the new Lil Wayne. Dude has been everywhere the last couple of months, Lil Wayne is behind his giant push, the industry is expecting a lot from this guy, and overall he’s the new hot topic in rap.
Seriously though, MTV dont even count. They are so fucking lame. They cater to teenage girls and shit. So they should be makin a top alternative or pop list and stay the hell away from rap cause the only people they recognize are mainstream artists. I admit some of the mainstream artists are tight but not the tracks MTV shows. Coochie Mane errr.. Gucci Mane is so fucking wack by the way.
True, Tech is just about better than a lot of the people on the list, but youll never seem him on any of these. Tech is a speck on the MTV radar, these guys are conglomerate giants i.e. Jay -Z. Arguing that Tech should be on such a list is completely futile, just be happy that you know how talented he is.
