Kanye West Slams MTV’s ‘Hottest MCs In The Game’ List, Cites Lil Wayne as No. 1 Rapper

Kanye West called into The Angie Martinez Show on New York’s HOT 97 radio station today to discuss coming in at number seven on MTV’s Hottest MCs In The Game list. Yeezy takes on a more measured tone compared to the recent rants he’s been relaying at his live shows. While he was happy for G.O.O.D. Music comrade Big Sean for coming in at number six, he feels that both he and Big Sean should have come up higher on the list, citing various tracks that both artists featured on in 2012. Kanye also states that he thinks Lil Wayne is the number one rapper. Listen to the conversation in full below, which ends with 'Ye calling out MTV presenter Sway

    kanye literally influenced all the lil niggas right now, wearing leather pants, he prly is the reason why these niggas know how to pronouce givenchy or the reason they know margiela and you never hear niggas say ' i wanna dress like lil wayne' you know one thing for sure if kanye puts out a new song you take the time to listen to it, love him or hate him

  • Myles Barksdale

    This is true...Kanye is the reason why alot of these dudes adopted a sense of style. (Not to give him too much credit, I'm sure other people influenced too...i.e. Pharrell

  • asaucy

    all these fuck niggas trying to put kanye down just cause he pushing the envelope in hip-hop in a musical and fashion sense. everything he does becomes a trend, he is our generations voice. cruel summer is way too underated just because it wasnt full of trap songs.

  • Haco

    Fuck MTV first of all. Fuck them, they think Drake is on top, they give awards to Justin Bieber, One Direction, Lady Gaga...
    Kanye is the best rapper since he dropped MBDTF, without anyone near him.

    Althought I love to see Ye mad because is going to be on the studio pushing him over creativity

  • Haco

    that "remember that!" must be a sample

    Kanye is first. BUT Big Sean is whack. Cruel Summer is not 'that' good. Lil Wayne is not first.
