Kanye West Responds To Being #7 On MTV's Hottest MC's List

After years of controversy surrounding the choices for MTV's Hottest MCs list, it's no surprise that this year is no different.

With the lineup currently listing Meek Mill as #10, Future as #9, A$AP Rocky as #8, Big Sean at #6, and Drake at #5, people and rappers alike have already taken to Twitter and interviews to air their opinions on the rankings.

None were more vocal than Kanye West, however who uncharacteristically called into Angie Martinez's Hot 97 to speak with DJ Enuff about being listed as #7.

Listen below as Kanye lists of reasons why he should be a top contender, states Lil Wayne is his #1 emcee, calls out Sway for a lack of loyalty, only to hang up the phone on DJ Enuff in typical "drop the mic" fashion:

Hit the jump to catch Weezy and Sway's response to Ye's rant:

Does Kanye have a right to be angry over the list? Hit the comments and tell me what you think.

Tyga's Tour Bus Shot In Drive By; Honey Cocaine Injured

Update: (3/24): Honey Cocaine Talks About Shooting:

Update (3/22): Tyga called into Power 106 to discuss the Omaha shooting:

Yesterday Tyga's Careless World Tour stopped through Omaha, Nebraska, where things got really out of hand. Watch the altercation that took place on stage where Tyga closed out the show with "Rack City" before promising to meet the guy who threw something onto the stage immediately after.

Following this argument and the concert, gun shots were fired as Tyga's tour bus was exiting the venue, injuring Tyga's artist Honey Cocaine and another unidentified person. Thankfully, Honey's injuries were minor and she's doing fine.

XXL Magazine Reveals Its 2012 Freshman Class

I had a very long debate with Mr. Write of PenStation about who I feel should make it in XXL's 2012 Freshman Class and who I think they'll select.  I was pretty dead on with who I thought would make the list except for a few artists. However, I am surprised that ScHoolboy Q, Stalley, or A$AP Rocky (he declined) didn't make the cut. Artists like Roscoe Dash should have made this list years ago, and I don't know enough about Macklemore and Hopsin to discount them.

To see the full list, visit XXL Mag HERE.

WTF?? MTV Reveals Their List of 2011's 25 Hottest MCs

Uh oh. MTV done f**ked up now.

2011 was a great year for Hip Hop in my opinion as a lot of newer artists finally got the recognition from fans and peers that I feel they truly deserved.  Case in point: J. Cole, Kendrick Lamar, and Mac Miller. 2 out of the 3 had #1 albums on the Billboard charts, one is nominated for Best New Artist,  was crowned the new King of the West by legendary West Coast emcees, and the other broke an independent sales record.

The problem: None of them are on MTV's list of the 25 Hottest MC's of the year.


Instead, artists like Maino, Red Cafe, Jim Jones, and Nas (who put out ONE song of his own in 2011) made the list. I'm puzzled. Anyways, check out the promo for the Hottest MCs In The Game miniseries, and hit the jump for the full list of nominees.

Rick Ross May Sign Emilio Rojas & Dom Kennedy to MMG [VIDEO]

Rick Ross has got his eye on a few of today's most talent free agents, and I'm the first to admit that I have been impressed with the Bawse's Maybach Music signings thus far.  Pretty soon, West Coast spitter Dom Kennedy and New York emcee Emilio Rojas might be calling MMG home.  Let's see what Ross has to say about the rumors!

No huge announcement yet, but I guess time will tell. If MMG doesn't scoop them up, they'll be just fine.
