MTV Names Rick Ross The ‘Hottest MC In The Game’ [See The Full List]
Last week on MTVNews.com, MTV started their list of the ‘hottest rappers in the game,” their criteria they based their list off was:
The criteria to be considered a Hottest MC are based on a combination of impact, buzz, sales, lyrics, swag and the intangibles.
See why the bawse topped the list, and take a look at the rest of the Top 10.
The Top 10:
9. Wiz Khalifa
8. Big Sean
7. Meek Mill
6. Jay Z
5. Lil Wayne
4. Nicki Minaj
3. Kanye West
1. Rick Ross
The truth is, Rozay’s 2011 reign didn’t hinge on an album release. The Bawse set things up properly in February of last year when he signed his Maybach Music Group record label over to Warner Music Group and scooped up newcomer Meek Mill (this year’s #7 Hottest MC), Wale (#10)and later Stalley. Musically, Ricky Ro put his team in position to dominate with the label compilation Self Made, Vol. 1. Rather than taking all the shine, Ross passed the baton to Meek, who delivered “Ima Boss” and “Tupac Back.” Wale contributed the rhythmic gem “That Way,” and even ousted MMG spitter Pill logged serious miles on the LP.
See what else MTV had to say about Ross taking the top spot, and see what they had to say the about the rest of the list.
