If you placed your money on Kendrick Lamar being named the ““Hottest MC”” by MTV, then it’s time to collect your winnings.

The brain trust behind MTV’s highly contested list that saw Kanye West and A$AP Rocky feeling pressed about their placements, found K-Dot to be the “Hottest MC In The Game.”

This should be great news for the Compton rapper who recently shared his comments on the list with Rap-Up.

“It’s very important for hip-hop. I love that they have debates like that. We need that. It’s competitive. Even though we doing these collaborations and stuff like that and we cool, at the same time, this is still rap. It’s still competitive and I’m trying to compete with everybody to be the best…You’re supposed to feel like you’re the best cause if you don’t, you gon get stepped on cause it’s a jungle out there.”
