Certainly, Kanye West will not be taking home his second ever “Hottest MC in the Game” title from MTV. Though Kanye West came out strong in 2012, he did so as a member of his G.O.O.D. Music collective. Undoubtedly the leader of the crew, Kanye West still only was a member.
Meanwhile, there were many other rappers delivering some of their best work in 2012 and deserve to be on some lists. Kanye West performed well in 2012, but he was not the only artist who did well in 2012. There also was rookie, A$AP Rocky, who took the game over with hit singles.
This morning, MTV returned with the latest two emcees on the “Hottest MCs in the Game” list. A$AP Rocky landed on MTV’s list for the first of hopefully many times in his career, battling Big Sean off, holding the eighth position. Kanye West, meanwhile, continues his run and he has taken the seventh position on the list. Of course, this list is subject to change.
Eventually, Big Sean topped A$AP Rocky and Kanye West, coming in a sixth on the “Hottest MCs in the Game” list.
