A$AP Rocky Says He Should Be Number 1 On MTV’s Hottest MC’s

It looks like Kanye West isn't the only emcee not happy with his positioning on MTV's Hottest MCs In The Game list, as A$AP Rocky has also voiced his opinion on positioning. The young Harlem rapper sat down with the DJ SourMilk and Justin Credible of the L.A. Leakers and shared that he wasn't to happy with coming ranked in at No. 8.

I didn’t like that.

I’ve been directing my videos since 22, I’m 24-years-old. All of my videos are sh***ing on any hip-hop video out there let’s be honest, the reason everyone’s wearing gold again is because of your boy. Everybody’s wearing diamonds, I’m the one who made glasses with the John Lennon shades with the glasses going on now. C’mon who brought gold teeth back? I’m just being honest.

I’m the first artist that grew enough balls to say I listen to Geto Boys, Three 6 Mafia, Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, N.W.A., and Wu-Tang at the same damn time, what! And I’m influenced by all of them.

Who brought double-time back? Who was rapping like Bone? Nobody.

Everybody’s rapping like that now, it’s frustrating when I’m number eight don’t put me on it at all.

Did Rocky deserve a higher spot on the list? The current list of emcees ranked 10-5 can be viewed down below. Check out his full interview up above and let us know what you think comment section.

    these niggas at mtv dont kno what they doin. they dont even play music on there. lol gtfo. im surprised so many rappers are responding to their wack, outdated, and irrelevant opinions

  • HipHop

    It's called hottest MC's in the game for a reason. he's talking about how hes bringing shit back and how hes directing his videos. that has nothing to do with being a MC

  • CandGoodCam

    this list is a joke...mtv is a joke

  • Hipster Rap

    Isn't it Ironic that "Fashion Killa" is one of the worst songs he's ever made ? & who gives a fuck if you direct your own videos. that's like saying you brush your own teeth ...

  • Slow your roll buddy

    Ok big Sean respectively brought back Cartiers back...

  • http://www.facebook.com/gnutgrass Garrett Nutgrass

    "who raps like bone?" so you're saying you rap like someone else and you need to be acknowledged for that?

    however i do think he should be on the list

  • niggah808

    MTV is shit, he shouldn't even care. WHO seriously watches MTV anymore? If you REALLY dig your hip hop you shouldn't be watching MTV or letting that influence your hip hop. Fuck that shit, I still jam Black Moon, Smiff N Wessun, Big L, Wu-Tang (Who doesn't?), Tribe Called Quest, Mobb Deep, KRS-ONE, Gangstarr and J-5. Fuck Rick Ross, fuck Lil Wayne, fuck Drake.

  • dam

    so brave

  • dam

    for real, actual tell me 3 things that you don't like about Wayne, Ross or Drake, other than they're popular and they make music that gets played on the radio

  • niggah808

    Lil Wayne's lyrics are a joke, the song 'lollipop'? I shouldn't even have to say. Rick Ross is a fake ass gangster poser, and actually I shouldn't have put Drake on that list. Let's just re-iterate you said things that 'I' (Keyword: I, [first person]) don't like about them. TBH I dislike MTV more than all these guys so we shouldn't even have to argue unless you are ridiculously in love with MTV in which case I will feel the need to punch you in the face.

  • damniggah

    I don't hate MTV, i just don't watch it. All I'm trying to tell you is blind hate has no benefit. Be happy, peace

  • garchomp

    'bring back gold' can this foo at least say thank you to kanye, dont tell me youre not influenced by the guy who made you wear a skirt, dont tell me Ye' didnt wear gold on gold on gold during his MBDTF stage, dont tell Ye' that he didnt have diamond incrusted teeth before yo got on

  • Myles Barksdale

    ASAP Rocky is a Hot MC, but most definitely not one of the best rappers out right now. He's honestly just alot of hype (as far as rap goes)...I got love for his creativity though

  • lupe?

    you're high

  • Gangstalicious

    He really think he brought all that back?
    Smh this list was always and will always be a joke. It's should be renamed to most hyped rappers not hottest MC cause that implies they need skill.
    It's 80% image and numbers, 10% skill and 10% hype that gets artists on this list.

  • KDL

    I think they made this list list too early, and the list is wack. Like Future really..

  • ramer

    what a cunt
