    @Grind,

    Lets not forget Waka Flocka Flame was 6 on the list last year. I think we can all agree it lost credibility there.

    Hope Lloyd Banks and Young Jeezy at least crack the list at least, would be a shame if they didn’t. Cold Corner 2 and TM 103 were great

    Before everyone starts sayin kendrick lamar, j cole, and big krit should be on this list.. Let’s be real this list is more of a lifetime achievment thing. They have the buzz of being new to the game. They all need to deliver a little more before saying they deserve to be on this list…Not sayin I think there music hasn’t been better than most of the guys on the list but they haven’t been in the game long enough to get hate for being famous. And in my opinion Eminem is going to lose his crown to kanye with jay being 2nd. Em will come in third just because watch the throne was a legit album and hell the sequel was just a bunch of songs thrown together. Em still had the hottest verse’s all year though. Subliminals all over hell the sequel. Gotta love me some classic slim shady

    @Curt, Key words “Of 2011″ Meek Mill, Maino, French Montana, Yelawolf, 2 Chainz, or Big Sean shouldn’t be on their either if that was the case

    [Reply]

    Curt Reply:

    @Black Hippiie, I agree with all of those except yelawolf. His album is love or hate. I like it Honestly I like to think I pay attention to what’s goin on in the “rap game” but I don’t even know who 2 chaniz is…Which is why he won’t even crack the top ten

    [Reply]

    Black Hippiie Reply:

    @Curt, it is not even about the albums, its just that it’s the “Hottest of 2011,” c’mon son J. Cole had the world buzzing not just America about his new album and it had the #1 spot for god sake, Yelawolf had a good album, Kendrick Lamar’s Section.80 was amazing, Maino ain’t really show nothing in 2011, Meek Mills was just a feature artist most the time, 2 Chainz got popular because the B.E.T Awards, French Montana that’s all I am going to say about him cause that’s all that is need to be said, Big Sean did ok but wasn’t the hottest

    Jason Reply:

    @Curt,

    Lifetime achievement award??? Lmaooo u sound stupid!!! It’s the best of 2011 that’s it cuz 2chainz is on here!!

    [Reply]

    Curt Reply:

    @Jason, I never said I agreed with the list. Not that many people know about big krit or kendrick. J cole is the only artist truly getting snubbed from this list cause he’s the only artist out of the 3 to get radio play

    [Reply]

    Deezy Dru Reply:

    @Curt, If it’s about achievement then why are Wiz,2Chainz and Big Sean up there.K.Dot,Cole and Krit are way better then all of them.

    [Reply]

    Curt Reply:

    @Curt, I stand corrected…For some of these artists it’s alifetime achievement thing. I think it’s cause they have there top ten and just threw in big names to try to get more attention. I mean seriously nas isn’t going to make the top ten…What has he done for the past 3 years?

  6. Black Hippiie on February 7th, 2012 5:26 am

    J. Cole, Kendrick Lamar, Mac Miller, Tech N9ne, MGK or Big K.R.I.T. not making the list is sort of surprising, MTV stupid as hell, they don’t know hip hop even the Grammys acknowledged J. Cole for obvious reasons

    Wtf! No J. Cole? Who makes this list? Half these rappers are on here based off of lifetime achievements. But please explain how lloyd banks, maino, and jim jones make this list

    [Reply]

    Mike Reply:

    @Hill,
    I need to know this too, wtf Maino do this year? If maino on here, Lupe should be on here. Garbage list, thats all I can say.

    Jay, Kanye, Lil Wayne, Drake, Eminem, Nicki Minaj, Fat Joe .. i mean Rick Ross, all these guys shouldn’t even be on here because it’s all the same music.

    Cant wait for the freshman class list.

    Wale should be on the top but he won’t be.

    @NAS THE ETHER,

    Yela did a great album, still isn’t enough to be the hottest MC of the year, but definitly he deserves being on that list.

  16. Oscar on February 7th, 2012 5:43 am

    This list is awful. How do you leave guys like J.cole and Kendrick lamar off this list. Most of the people on this list arnt even Mc’s. French montana and Jim jones? are you fucking serious. I remember when people use to care about lyrics. Fuck mtv they clearly arn’t about music like they use to be they should stick to doing reality shows now.

    [Reply]

  17. RS on February 7th, 2012 5:44 am

    No Royce da 5’9 or Slaughterhouse members. No J Cole yet he’s going to win a Grammy next week?

    Seems like MTV pulled these names out of a hat.

    [Reply]

  18. Listen To Charlie on February 7th, 2012 6:09 am

    I put my money here:

    EMINEM
    Nas
    Drake

    But probably Jay-Z or Kanye West are going to get because all the buzz from WTT.
    I would love se J. Cole, Dee-1 and Kendrick Lamar on that list.

    @Listen To Charlie, Kanye over jay cause he was touring harder and he basically is jay’s producer now

  28. Sampz on February 7th, 2012 11:41 am

    So who had the most hits in 2011? Who sold most albums in a week? Who made record breaking online sales in 4 days? Who had most songs on billboard at one time? Who released the most music? (album and mixtape). The answer is Lil Wayne!

    P.s why has no one mentioned the game? That’s the biggest dissapointment for not making the list!

    If We going off HOTTEST in 2011 J COLE and MAC Miller need to be added. I am not even fan of mac miller to much at all, but he gotta get a nod. LIST is just comedy to have 2 Chainz, French Montana, Maino ,Red cafe and not mention cole. NEVER EVER NOT ONCE will any of rappers have a #1 album in their career. Cole and Mac both had #1’s/

  33. dnice on February 7th, 2012 4:03 pm

    J.cole is grammy nominated and has one of the best albums last year, there is no way in hell he does not deserve to be on this list

  44. nechelle on February 9th, 2012 4:30 pm

    alright, i think the reason why they made this list is because this is just a cash competition. if you can’t rap for shit, then who cares howuch money you have. i hate that this is how rappers are rated these days. just cause you have millions doesn’t mean you’re the ‘Best Rapper Alive’ a la lil wayne -_-
