could have been better no doubt
only 6-7 of those dudes really deserve to be on ther
i have arguments against snoop and andre 3000 especially, snoops album sucked and andre did nothing this year...walk it out remix etc was last year and thats why he was #2 or 3 i forget
50 that high? Afte T.I.'s year hes on ther? Jeezy didnt do much either?
Jay-Z that high?
Only thing i thought was absolutely correct was Kanye. At least they got number 1 right

This is a List of Hottest At the Moment, that translate to Best at the moment. Its just that there are more determining factor than Lyrically ability. There are a series of other determining factors.

I actually watched the whole voting process on TV and they (Panelists) repeatedly use the terms "Best" and "Hottest" in the smae context. They also had plenty of determing factors like Album Sales/Ratings, Song Writing Ability (Doens't necessary involve extreme degrees of Lyrical ability), and etc. Idiots like you don't realize that when they (MTV Panelists) chose the Hottest MC's at the moment that they also mean Best. Bests aren't based on one element of a Rappers skills.

Even if this List was for Hottest Lyricists in Rap at the moment, that would still translate to "Best" lyricists at the moment. It isn't though, they take all aspects of a Rapper into consideration, not just their Lyrical ability. Thats the typical method when deciding who is Best Overall.



That dude who brought up the dude who brought up Black Thought is a joke. I don't understand why people hate on Comprehension. Especially when I stated after mentioning Black Thought: "this list isn't based on Lyrically Content but more on Notoriety."

I don't know what sort of Education you recieved but Notoriety (In the Rap Industry) tends to constitute success. Do you understand that or do you need someone to translate it in "Doltish" for you?
at writing paragraphs of nothing. Hottest does not necessary mean beast.

In his era, LL Cool J was considered the "hottest" *pause* but he was far from the "best"

why would anyone think that people like nas , styles P, Az, jadakiss should be on the list...it says the list is based on what rappers are the HOTTEST and only judging on the last year...within the last year the cats i mentioned above havent done ANYTHING so how could they be hot?...all things considered the list is pretty accurate

In summer 2007, the MTV News Hip-Hop Brain Trust sat down and had another controversial roundtable debate. Unlike previous discussions, the trustees devised a list of not the greatest ever, but the Hottest MCs in the Game right then. The rankings were based on lyrics, flow, impact on the game, success and swagger. The roundtable recently reconvened and came up with a brand-new list of Hottest MCs. Our experts used the same criteria, but only judged on the past year of hip-hop.

Check out the full "Hottest MCs in the Game" list, and the full show!

Flame Thrower: Kanye West

Why He's Hot
With all due respect to the Diddys and Busta Rhymeses of the world, Kanye West has surpassed everyone as the best live performer in hip-hop. Grooming himself on stadium tours with Jay-Z, U2 and the Rolling Stones over the years has done him good. Even if West didn't release another rap this year, he'd still be the hottest for his Glow in the Dark Tour alone. Without exaggeration, it's the greatest one-man show put on by a hip-hop artist, possibly ever. Pure expression, no irony, just an irrefutable avowal that he is the game's most imaginative visionary right now. 'Ye's sold-out set is an orgy of lights, classic songs and conceptual genius. You've never seen anything like it.

And by the way, he can rap and produce as well. From the stage to the studio, no one puts the entire presentation together like Mr. West. Tremendous! Graduation beat Curtis and every other hip-hop album on the Billboard charts. First-week sales of close to a million and double-platinum certification notwithstanding, it stood out from everything else artistically too. On the last list, we spoke of the dominance of "Can't Tell Me Nothing" and "Stronger." Those two records put Kanye in 2007's top five. This year's ranking was spurred on by "Flashing Lights," a first-listen dance-floor classic in which Kanye narrates his troubled relationship and his hate affair with the paparazzi.

Late last year, while 'Ye was enjoying the commencement of a next level of fame and success, he lost his best friend. He lost one of his life's greatest inspirations, his mother, Donda West. Kanye showed the world his inner strength. He took several weeks to grieve, only to come back with a critically acclaimed international tour and the video for "Flashing Lights."

Of late, he's been unveiling a whole new set of rhymes, with guest appearances alongside vocalists like Estelle and hip-hop's elite, such as Lupe Fiasco, Pusha T, Lil Wayne and Young Jeezy.

"I got the money and the fame, man, that don't mean sh--," he raps on the Snowman's "Put On." "I got the Jesus on the chain, man, that don't mean sh--/ 'Cause when the Jeeesus pieces can't bring me peace, yo/ Sure, I need just at least one of Russell's nieces."

Kanye has been telling us he's #1 for years, and now that he has been given the accolade of Hottest MC in the Game, intelligent bets are that he'll continue creating so he won't have to relinquish the title.

"I'mma rap like I got some type of respect for myself/ I don't do it for my health, man/ I do it for the belt, man," he says in Lil Wayne's "Lollipop" remix.

Co-Signer: Snoop Dogg
"I think what makes you hot is your ability to hold a crowd, demand respect, be respected amongst your peers whenever you're in an environment where it is predominantly MCs. ... Kanye West belongs on the list, because his record was phenomenal. I love the way he came on his record. It's was dope. It was clever. It was genius. He kind of moved ahead of his boss if you ask me."

Blistering Ballistics
"You don't see just how fly my style is/ I don't see why I need a stylist/ When I shop so much, I can speak Italian/ I don't know, I just want it better for my kids/ And I ain't sayin' we was from the projects/ But every time I wanted layaway or a deposit/ My dad would say, when you see clothes close your eyelids/ We was sorta like Will Smith and his son/ In the movie, I ain't talkin 'bout the rich ones/ 'Cause every summer, he'd get some brand-new hair-brained scheme to get rich from/ And I don't know what he did for dough/ But he'd send me back to school with a new wardrobe." From "Champion"

your confusing tha word HOT with actual talent and skill. im sure everyone on this board can name at least 5-10 real mc's not mentioned on tha list that could rap circles around anyone on it. tha mtv list was based on people who are relevent in tha mainstream. if they actually comprised tha list of people with actual skill in their craft most of these people would not be on it.lol.

to be honest almost none of them are actual mc's in tha first place, if you want to be technical about it.
