Statistics at the ready!
Earlier on today, MTV released their latest list ‘Hottest MCs In The Game‘, made up of Rap more influential acts.
Without further delay, find out where your favorite lyricist ranked below…
1. Rick Ross
3. Kanye West
4. Nicki Minaj
5. Lil Wayne
7. Meek Mill
8. Big Sean
9. Wiz Khalifa
What makes this list so cool is its sense of diversity.
For, much to the detriment of many a ‘Vintage Hip Hop’ staple, contemporary Rap really is about who you are as an individual, not about endorsing the archaic ‘Hoodrat Till I Die’ mantra the likes of Lil Kim can’t pull away from.
From Drake’s melancholic approach to Nicki’s light, bright and ballsy stance to the genre, this tally represents just what makes today’s Hip Hop so engaging to people of all demographics, as well as showcase the power of honest music and fan support.
Because who could have guessed five years ago that Rick Ross’ career would be in a better place than 50 Cent‘s.
But what do you think?
