    @Chris, come on yo, wayne is overrated he sucks jay murders him wale is better than him too

    sasha sarmento Reply:

    @Chris wayne was relevant back in 08 .. its 4 years later, a prison sentence, and nothing worth listening too. put a fork in him, he’s done. let the rest of ymcmb WITHOUT his or birdman’s features try to carry the name cause he’s killing it. its like i heard once, “that moment wayne or birdman’s voice comes on and you skip to the next track.” EVERY TIME.

    3 YMCMB Artists. they won. Jay-Z after Weezy , Weezy win.
    Kanye after Drake , Drake win.

    Rozay had to get that title , he had to be recognized for his career.
    ofc weezy or drake deserves it more , but respect to telfon don.

    @Grizzly, They won what? They won the fact that MTV put together a shit list? If you really think a MTV list that doesnt even include Kendrick (who many people say Section.80 was a classic and easily one of the best albums of 2011) and Cole is worth something than Angel is right you dont know rap well at all.

  18. daniel kelly on February 20th, 2012 7:21 am

    I think maybe what we are all mis ready is the part that said ”hottest”. it doesnt say THE BEST IN THE GAME does it ? this is a list of all the people whos careers were good this year like look at what wiz has achieved and same with wale big sean and rick ross all of them were and still are hard on their grind I know kendrick,cole etc are too but what there doing didnt get them noticed as much as wiz etc. all the small efforts that nobody sees is what got all of these people on this list, not because of their rhymin and lyrical skills. if this list was to be best lyrical and big krit would be top for me because his track the vent has such an impact on me everytime I play it. then i guess j cole would be next cause his track lights out was just too good. kendrick lamar next, if u havent heard look out for detox yet go check that out now. mac miller because every track he gets on he spits with that amazing flow old schoolness in his blood. curren$y should be on this 2012 list because he puts in serious hard work in ways that people wouldnt understand and probably never will for spitta is a smart intellecutal, not for the everyday commercial radio listening type probably the reason why hes not on this cause he would be at the tip top.yelawolf cause hes a raw red neck who still spits about the wreckless even tho hes signed to shady and the reason he can still spit that real stuff is cause thats the type of mentality he has on an everyday basis even tho you would think fame would kick all those bad thoughts out of your head and only think abouts money,cars,clothes and hoes. iv loved wiz from when he had about 10,000 twitter followers he now currently has 4.5 mill I idolised him for what he was doin and I can honestly sadly say that I do not anymore because he just raps the same raps in different words with no meaning i know he wrote the letter to the taylors to say that he has to be the way he is cause of the lifestyle he has supermodel woman etc rap comes from the heart and soul which means you rao about what your actually doing. go and listen to wiz khalifa your gonna love me and the difference is mind boggling but i still respect him for bein true to himself and not writing bulls**t fake raps. the moral to this story is that main stream publicity actually ruins all our good rappers so the less publicity kendrick lamar,j cole etc get the better. if your a smart individual and are passionate about hip hop then you will more than understand me what I am saying.

    Ross’s album or his crew’s don’t come up on any top 10 albums of 2011 list so how is he the hottest MC in the game?

    Guess he paid MTV a few million.

    No wonder hip hops in the state its in, Slaughterhouse/Good music gona rescue it this year hopefully.

  24. Blake on February 20th, 2012 9:02 am

    What the fuck.

    No J. Cole? I’m sorry but Tha Carter 4 can suck on Cole World: The Sideline Story’s nuts.

    No Game? The R.E.D Album was HAM. Rozay doesn’t even rap about real stuff.

    No Bad Meets Evil? For a 9 track (11 if you got the deluxe edition) album this was some of the rawest stuff I’ve ever heard. Royce and Em? Killed it. No one else on that list is as lyrically gifted as those two guys.

    Without further notice,
    Fuck you MTV. You got it ALL wrong.

    [Reply]

    kbrian Reply:

    @Blake,

    i don’t need to say anything, you said it all for me.

    J. Cole should’ve definitely been on that list. Top 10, but below 5. He even has workout and can’t get enough on the radio. He’s a true underdog that aspired to where he’s at now, and is a key component to proving the music industry wrong. He’s making lyricism cool again.

    K. Dot is the ultimate underdog. Section 80 was amazing. Overly Dedicated was cool, too. Murdered Game on his own track. However, no radio play = no MTV list.

    Eminem and Royce killed with B.M.E., but with the Young Money Mainstream is just too much, perhaps.

    Lil Wayne deserves to be on there, I don’t even really like Weezy anymore. But 950k first week must account for something.

    Drake should be taken down a notch on the list. Is he a good MC? Definitely. But how much of an MC can you be when half of your albums is R&B. He can be on #1 on top 10 Hottest Hip Hop artist, but definitely not for MC.

    WTT was cool, ye and jay definitely deserve to be on there. Niggas in Paris is seriously everywhere.

    Wale > Big Sean

    IDK how Rozay got first. Just my opinion, but I enjoy Ross as a feature, but I can’t deal with a full song of his.

    Eh, these lists have always been a bit skeptical.

    Mine:

    1. Black Thought & The Roots
    2. Shady 2.0
    3. Kanye West
    4. Drake
    5. Lil Wayne
    6. Jay
    7. J. Cole
    8. Wale
    9. Meeks
    10. Game

    Honorable Mentions:
    Big K.R.I.T., Big Sean, Mac Miller, Wiz Khalifa, Curren$y, Nicki

    First off lil Wayne has the most haters in the world I’m really convinced for any of you to say he doesn’t deserve to be on this list you should slap yourself weather you like or hate the dude he’s hot he works hard he’s been here longer than most of the people on this list carter 4 was a solid album could of been better but Wayne is Wayne and his 5 spot I understand….and congrats to Ross you deserve to be #1 you worked ya ass off…..and for all u people looking for Kendrick,and cole, em and, game it’s the hottest mc’s in the game not the hottest for a lil bit just because u put a album out doesn’t me shit don’t get me wrong cole really needs to be on this list and ima leave it at that..
