    I personally think Nicki was snubbed because of her Pop singles. The actual Rap songs she put out last year were leaps and bounds better than Future or A$AP. Also surprised Jay Z isn’t on this list.

    • truth(icki is a KMART, NO GRAMMY NOD, PFRR FLOP, SQUID EYED b****) March 8, 2013

      B**** SHUT THE F*** UP!! SHE WASNT SNUBBED HER HOOD S*** WAS WHACK!! B****!! SHE DIDNT DESERVE TO B THERE!! U…S**** H**!!

  2. My Forehead Tho March 8, 2013

    The only thing that made this list relevant was Kendrick being #1. Other than that, the list was complete and utter bs.

    Where’s J.Cole?
    Where’s Jay Z?
    Where’s Wayne?
    Why is Ye so far down
    Why is 2 Chains and Officer Ross so high?

    MTV should never speak of Hip Hop…

    • Mark111 March 8, 2013

      It’s hottest MC’s right NOW, no one them dropped an album nor a single this year. This isn’t f****** pop, so you have no grown on this.

    • TheChefette March 10, 2013

  3. VANNY March 8, 2013

    • Boss March 8, 2013

  17. ShadeNoShade March 8, 2013

    That Got This List ALL THE WAYYYYYYT F***** Up This Year. 2 Chainz As #2 SERIOUSLY? So You’re Telling Me 2 Chainz Is Better Than NAS, DRAKE, & KANYE? HELL NO! Now About Nicki Minaj They’re Excuse For Her Not Being On This List Is Because She’s Been Too “Quiet” WHAT TYPE OF S***/LIESSSSSSSSSSSSS. In The Beginning Of 2012 She Performed At The Grammys, Superbowl With Madonna, NBA All Star, Had SEVERAL Deals MAC, OPI, PEPSI, ADIDAS, Put Out An Album THAT WAS THE HIGHEST SELLING HIP-HOP ALBUM OF 2012. Had SEVERAL FEATURES, Had TWO WORLD TOURS And SOLD OUT Most Of Them. KILLED Her Mercy Verse On Wayne’s Mixtape And Had EVERYONE Talking About It, Won Awards, Put Out A Limited Re-Release That Sold MORE Than The People’s On This Lists Albums. And Is Now Doing American Idol And She’s Been Too Quiet? B*******. And The “Nicki Doing Pop Songs” Is A POOR Arugment!!

    • truth(icki is a KMART, NO GRAMMY NOD, PFRR FLOP, SQUID EYED b****) March 8, 2013

      your irreleveant b****!! you just confirmed icki is a flop!! she done all the s*** last year and caint even make a hip hop list hahahaha!! she sold her soul to the illuminati and and flop this year hahahaha!!! u h**

      • ShadeNOShade March 9, 2013

        You’re ALWAYS On EVERY Nicki Post On This Site. LMFAOOOOO Damn B**** You BEEN A FAN. XOXO

  18. DeezNuts March 8, 2013

    The list should have went as follows (based on their criteria):

    1)Kendrick
    2)Minaj
    3)Drake
    4)Kanye
    5)Jay Z
    6)Big Sean
    7)Nas
    8)ASAP Rocky
    9)Meek Mill
    10)2Chainz

    -There is NO WAY that NIcki Minaj should not be on that list. She sold more records, made more money, has more influence, etc than EVERYONE on that list besides Kanye and Drake. Damn Shame.

    • MiMi Carey March 8, 2013

      Lol gurl byeeeee no way Nicki would ever be that high were talking bout the best & not the worst mama

    My comment was directed @ Monsterebel. #Toodles

  21. White girl mob 2.0 March 8, 2013

    Kreayshawn should at least been #6 at least she put in a lot of work. Her single Gucci Gucci went gold! She got the most views out of Rihanna, nicki minaj, beyonce, kreayshawn is a dope female rapper very underrated!

    • MiMi Carey March 8, 2013

      lmao funny

      • White girl mob 2.0 March 8, 2013

        Shut you stupid trash bag h**. With you’re ugly fat ass fave lol that girl is overweight she need to stop eating at McDonalds on her days off

      • MiMi Carey March 8, 2013

        Lol kreayshawn could only wish to be an ounce as successful as my fav… kreay will forever be irrelevant n a flop lol honey Mariah would never sell 3k first week.chile so you n your crack head lookin fav can have several seats in the pits of hell

  22. White girl mob 2.0 March 8, 2013

    Kreayshawn put out a mixtape called “kitty’s x choppas” and had the streets on fire for the rest of 2010. She put out Gucci Gucci got sign to a major record label.. Went on to get nominated for a VMA! Then she put out her debut album which got great reviews (but did not sell good) cause black people hated on her for being white. She later got magazine cover for complex magazine & vibe magazine. Her single Gucci Gucci then went gold putting nicki minaj fan base to shame!

    • FAF March 8, 2013

      LMAO I heard that mixtape… H*** on my d*** >>>

  25. FAF March 8, 2013

    I don’t understand how they make this list. It doesn’t make sense. You cant throw random ppl so far up a list, you have to earn your position. How are people in the top 5 that weren’t even on the list last yr? And how are these artists (besides Kendrick) who didnt have high sales above Nicki? Branding? Endorsments? How is big sean above Kanye? What has Big Sean put out last yr that was so profound? Kanye had watch the Throne and Cruel Summer. Big sean was just a part of a crew *shrug*

    • truth(icki is a KMART, NO GRAMMY NOD, PFRR FLOP, SQUID EYED b****) March 8, 2013

      icki didn’t have the highest slling hiphop cd last year yall b******

    Kanye is all hype can bearly rap anymore

    Big Sean/Two chainz are just f****** HORRIBLE

    Meek Mill / Future Whoooooooooooo??????? two irrelevant flops

    Nas was hot back in the day but now hes just tired

    &WHERES PITBULL N FLO RIDA SMH THIS LIST IS A STRAIGHT MESS

  27. FAF March 8, 2013

    Jay Z and Eminem are not there… Therefore it is a joke. Who made it? A 15 yr old schoolboy?

  30. DIGGER BEY March 8, 2013

    Delusional ass people. Just cause Nicki ass sold more records than some people on the list. Does not mean she should b on the list. She’s a pop artist. Kendrick Lamar and every other person on that list >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Nicki. Those guys are real MCs. I’m glad MTV Didn’t put her ass on here. The b**** made Starships. WTF?????????? That wack ass sh*t wasn’t hip hop.

    • FAF March 8, 2013

      She’s not a pop artist when 80 percent of her music is hardcore rap. 9 out of 17 songs on RR, 6 out of 8 on RU… And It clearly states SUCCESS is one of the criteria

      • FAF March 8, 2013

        And u wanna talk about Pop as a Bey stan ? Starships sold 7 milli copies ww and was a top ten hit . Lets talk about Beez in the Trap, which was also platinum URBAN hit

  31. Savannah March 8, 2013

    Ummm if y’all actually look at the CRITERIA, this list is about right. Well…minus Future. Is he even considered a rapper?

    Big Sean, ASAP Rocky & Meek Mill have ILL flows! They may not rap about saving the black community, but they have the creativity (especially Big Sean) and flow down packed.

  32. For Reals March 8, 2013

    What the… Half of them are amatures who were inspired by the likes of Jay Z. Even Wayne and Eminem are not there! I cant even…. Smh. Unless Im taking the list outta context and they say ‘hottest’ in terms of like ‘hot righ now?’

  33. QueenBarb March 8, 2013

    Why is it always the bitter beyonce stans always the ones talking so much s***…. Like stfu and do something with your lives the hood hive is the reason i go in on beyfake they stay coming for queen nicki because beyonce is irrelevant n no ones cares for her anymore Nicki is the top black b**** in the industry n the hive can’t handle it

    @ Kreay Day

    The genre Pitbull and Flo Rida do is called POP-RAP, not Hip-Hop/Rap, LMAO.

    For 5 years, they’ve been doing completely nothing but sing about partying and putting hands up and s***..

Yeah that’s right, Nicki wack ass Starships sold 7 million. But 2 bad she’s a SUB PAR H**. She can boost millions of singles but can’t boost millions of albums. 4 was KING B’s lowest selling album and it sold more than all of Nicki’s wack ass albums.

  66. Nichole March 8, 2013

    Goonye is pissed off because he wasn’t higher on the list, blaming it on Kim and s***. This pmsing tool is such a little b****, as it is only a stupid irrelevant list Emptyv came up with.

    Nicki fake barbie doll Minaj should not have made the list, as she is not even a real MC. B**** is a Pop artist, and wannabe singer with her nursery rhymes.

  74. Boss March 8, 2013

    The list is called ‘Hottest MC’s in the Game’. Kendrick definitely deserved #1 that’s all I kno. I’m glad MTV refused to put a clown like Nicki on their list.

    • truth(icki is a KMART, NO GRAMMY NOD, PFRR FLOP, SQUID EYED b****) March 8, 2013

    • Boss March 8, 2013

      Hottest MC’s not the best MC’s nd Eminem hasnt had a realease since like 2011.

  76. Nikki March 8, 2013

    I understand the list. I was just stating a point. 2 Chainz being above anyone on a list is garbage

    • truth(icki is a KMART, NO GRAMMY NOD, PFRR FLOP, SQUID EYED b****) March 8, 2013

  77. Kayla March 8, 2013

    1) Nicki’s rap songs slay…she is still to be considered a MC. Wanna Know Why? Because An Mc Is Somebody Who Raps. Prove Me Wrong If I Say That In ALL Nicki’s Work (Rap/Pop/Feature) She Raps Somewhere Somehow…
    Rap:
    Beez In Da Trap
    Freedom
    I’m Legit
    Right By My Side
    I Am Your Leader
    Pop:
    Pound the Alarm
    Starships
    Super Bass
    Turn Me On
    Va Va Voom
    Features:
    Where Them Girls At
    Freaks
    Take It To the Head
    Girl On Fire
    Til the World Ends
    So With That Being Said…#NEXT

    2)Ummmmmmmmmm, snookums, 2 Chains Can’t Rap. He Is Only GooD For His Beats & Hooks #Next
    3) Um Can We Get Other Females If You Don’t Want Nicki…Cause Um Honey Cocaine Is Killing The Game Right Now Right ALong With Nicki…Let Us Vouche To Remove Future, 2 Chains, and Rick Ross “Burning My Money While Eatin MDonalds” Having Ass OFF THEE List…-files nails- and i’ll wait some…..
    #B******* #NotAccurate #ByeByeBirdies #TryAgain

  78. Nikki March 9, 2013

    (In my Mamma Dee Voice) and in the order…I couldn’t agree more

  79. Travis March 9, 2013

    This is my list of the hottest MC’s of 2012.
    #1) Future. Go to any club?
    #2) 2chainz. 180+ songs featured on.
    #3) Kendrick Lamar. Great lyrist. Fan base. Gr8 year.
    #4) Meek Mills. Out shines label head Ross. Superstar..
    #5) Asap Rocky. 3 hot top 10 songs
    #6) Drake. Say no more..
    #7) Kanye West. Cold Summer
    #8) Chief Keef. Love Sosa
    #9) Big Sean. Detroit
    #10) Mac Miller. Underdogs pay off

    #1-#3 could go either way… All 3 r dominating the radio play spinz all year.
    But this is my list. For hottest last year not ever just 1 calendar year.

  80. Yung Chop March 9, 2013

    Word. People getting all sensitive it’s not a Best Ever List..
    It’s a Best of 2012.. Future. 2 Chainz. & Kendrick Lamar. Running the
    Air wats. Notable mention… Nicki Minaj. Lil’ Wayne. Dedication 4 No Worries .
    Jay Z Barclay Concerts. & Nas had a good single…

  81. General April 17, 2013

    This is just BS. I could not finish maad city because it was just to boring. I did however finish the heist, and it was fucken awesome. Macklemore was the best in all but one in those categories. His single sold four million units and he still did not get a mention, and he did that without being anyones b****. The Trouble man mixtape should have at least gotten him a mention. That being said here is my top 10.
    1. Macklemore
    2. 2 Chainz
    3. Drake(grammy means everything but he sings too much)
    4. Big Sean
    5. Nas
    6. MGK (he talks to me and is one of the realest guys out now,LTFU!
    7. Meek Mill
    8. Kanye West
    9. Bobby Ray B.O.B.
    10. T.I.
    Other guys were a joke last year! Legends like Jay Z and Andre 3000 are not to be put on lists like these as we already know they will forever be the s***.
