With the success of, “Life Is Good,” Nas is named the 4th hottest MC in the game. I put Nas over Drake, “Life Is Good” > Drake’s guest verses.
…All I want is one of those fuckers to admit they made a mistake last year(and the year before that)….That’s it..Someone bomb Sway or anyone of those panelists and let me know how they respond.
The Dogstar would appreciate it.
Nas doesn’t deserve to be top 5. in what part of the world does Nas have more buzz then Drake or Kanye?
I want to know where’s the Drake ‘Stan” that’s always going overly hard about him and his greatness. I know he has read this. How does it feel?
I am pleasantly surprised but considering he had 5 videos for his album i guess i shouldnt be. Top 3, Kendrick Wayne n 2 Chainz? or is Nicki in there somewhere?
as far as this goes, i know drake dint put out an album, but fact remains he won the grammy over Nas and remained hotter than Nas on the blogs and on every other level. Not saying he is better than Nas. I just think they should specify the criteria of selection and follow the criteria.
another example is meek had an album drake did not so the argument about album really does hold not any water. My conclusion is that this list is not credible even to its own standards.
I think Nas did get at #4 from pitty they said it themselves nas hasnt been on that list and now hes on that list?. #1 is drake hes gotten soo much buzz of pure features!! Everysong he is on now is a hit and no one else but jayz has it like that. So top mc’s drake,meek mill, and jayz
top 3: 2chainz, Wayne and Ross
LOL homie said nas shouldn’t be #4 yet he had future as his #1
they forgot Bun B, Chamillionaire morons
The first MTV hottest MC pick I’ve actually agreed with. Long live the King
@3rdcoast lol Bun B, and Chamilli. Neither one of them is out with anything. Last time I heard Bun B was on First take talking crazy about the Rockets going to the finals.. This list goes by who’s poppin and it ain’t neither one of them. 2 and 1 goes to Wayne and 2 Chainz.
Did Nas have a great album? Yes. Did he have a great/complete year? debatable.
bullshit he deserves to be # 1
YEP, HE DESERVE TO BE NUMBER ONE
hell yeah nas deserve to be in the top three period
The question is what other rapper on the list so far can do what nas does every album with no radio or video play? nobody! i rest my case now!
This list makes no god damn sense…
jay z be lucky if he could even get through a full set catalog performance he sound like he about to have a heart attack when he on stage sit down. jay is getting to old for this and its showing all over his face and lungs! he need to focus on the roc nation roster cause he put them there now rep them artist not himself.smh! and drake can rap and he get a lot of radio play but lyrically he can’t fux wit nas kanye hasn’t spit nothing hard this year watch the throne with an exception of maybe to or three versus was whack! his verse on diamonds was sick but listen close pusha T helped him write that. Real rappers can hear pusha all in that verse! so yeah kanye 7. jay on drakes tip now! but what happened to j cole. obeah jay afraid he might do like kanye and get hotter than him! so predictable y’all!
good 4 him…so dese hip hop/rap nerds can stop bitchin bout da mtv list
This is not based on my personal prefernces (well, except for Kendrick) but the top three should be 3. Rick Ross, 2. 2 Chainz & 1. Kendrick Lamar. I thought they might put Wayne on here, but he’s had a pretty quiet year. Even his biggest critics can’t deny that 2 Chainz should be on this list. I don’t see how he ranked higher than Drake, but whatever. And Kendrick should get #1 just based on having the BEST project released during the year
I THINK NAS DESERVE TO BE NUMBER LIFE IS GOOD WAS REALLY THE BEST ALBUM.
They robbed Nas out of a grammy once again.
This reminds me of the year when Eminem got snubbed (not a huge Eminem fan) but when Eminem got snubbed from the list two years ago they cited their criteria as the main factor for not listing him. Nas had a great album but definetly not a great year buzz wise. Theyre covering their bases trying to avoid another Eminem catastrophe.
It’s a god damn shame that nas is even on this list! If your going to have a list you need to stick to the criteria n what is the criteria for 1 artist needs to be the same for everyone. Nas didn’t earn his spot he was put on out of pity, he didn’t have 1 single chart on us billboard us 100 1 single from the whole album charted on us rap and that was a high 78. He also didnt have one ft that charted. he didn’t perform at any award show the tour wasn’t a big deal. He performed at summer jam did 4 songs mostly old material didnt move the crowd “dont believe me go back and watch the footage” then brought Lauren out then left 20 min slot at best. We need to be fair hot is hot and he ain’t that this dude gets way to much credit for his mediocre efforts. I’m not saying he didn’t put out a album that many people like but there’s 10 more deserving artist who are putting in work and need to be acknowledged for it. You wouldn’t like being at work busting your ass n another employees doing just enough and getting paid the same or more than you. Hip hop is the same way!
