BMF was the last hottest street single since Lean Back, his name is all over hip-hop, he's the most talked about, had the hottest mixtape this year so far, dropped hot sh*t back to back. Got the hottest adlibs in the game right now (Whooooooooooo). Nobody is talking about the Carter 4 anymore,
ross blows bra. And that sh*t single doesn't come close to the buzz lean back had that whole year.

if ross is number 1 than diddy would of been number 1 back in 1997

because as an solo artist he has done less than he ever has this past year


Really? Ross was on the majority of the top albums in 2011 and released a compilation album and two singles compared to 2007 were he did nothing except celebrate the success of POM.

"97" was the biggest year for a producer and Diddy was easily the hottest commodity in the game that year.

It doesn't matter if the single didn't go gold or platinum, I bet everyone who heard the song think it went platinum, or at least think it should go platinum and that's the only thing that matters. Music can't reach everyone's ears.

real talk!...i really love jay music but he's not the top 5 worthy based on the criteria that they listed... Jay-Z name as a whole...fu*k the WTT sh*t..him as an artist has no type of hype behind him besides WTT...and the same sh*t for Ross..if we are going to talk about Ross touring, sales, business, social networking, accomplishments and etc its nothing compared to Wayne, Drake, Nicki, And Ye'...he cant run with them!...there is no competition!...im not being biased but facts is fu*kin facts..Kanye didnt even sell 1.5million in the U.S with his last album(gut he won grammys though)..and thats pretty much it what he have over Drake, Wayne, And Nicki,...As for Wayne he had 8 records to crack into the Billboard top 100 in 1 year...countless #1 on the rap charts, Countless #1 on the Hip Hop and R&B charts...9 platinum plus singles and features and 1 Gold Plaque, C4 sold 3.5million, he has the highest selling hip hop tour 2 years in a row, a very successful label with 3 successful artist having every single that they dropped from their album going Platinum plus..(Drake, Nicki, Tyga(Far away and rack city)...Drake went double platinum with take care and nickin went tripple platinum with pink friday..wayne has Won from MTV awards, BET awards, BMI awards and etc...he has the most record spins in the urban category !!...i can continue but i think yall get the point....BUT THEN AGAIN I WOULDNT BE SURPRISE HE IS #5 OR #4

Naw the people on that panel are insiders so they are going to mainly talk about the impact of the moves he made in the industry and give him props for bucking the industry trend to go euro/homo/emo while releasing Ambitiion, Dreamchasers, Self-Made, and Rich Forever within that timeframe. HipHop music without the cut on it.

Then they will speak on the guerilla film crews, the branding, the audio-water marking, the signings, the fly ish, and the overall movement.


The BMF wave is over, people on that Stay Schemin.

You lied and said 2011 was his least productive year as a solo artist and I corrected you because he released more solo material in 2011 than he did in 2007.

Boxdens demographics reflects in their opinions.


If you put 9 brothers & sisters from within the culture on a panel their list is going to look eerily similar to ours.

If you put 9 hang-gliders from outside the culture on a panel their list is going to look like the list on an Internet rap forum.


You putting Ross at #1 is easy for me to see but for someone who may be culturally-clueless will see him at #1 and say "Oh my God dude how can that frigging be"!


They don't understand what "Impact" is or how huge it is to secure a deal with WMG for your imprint while still being on UMG.

Things like the guerilla film crews and visuals are another component lost on people, but you feel me.

da fu*k?
n*gga called em hang gliders :guns:


aye but point taken mayne. seen da Boxden version of this hottest rapper list & pimpin had to come to terms wit whut we dealin wit here. active participants vs. appreciative onlookers. point out why & muhfu*kas finna start cryin but it is whut it is. if u aint never debated Pam vs. Gina then theres a 95% chance u an appreciative onlooker who actually think Joe Budden one of da hottest rappers of 2011. fish gotta swim

The BMF wave is over, people on that Stay Schemin.
but when it came to being an actual artist what did rick ross do. out of everybody on this list he might of done the least outside of jay-z. he basically going to be in because of his people not him. people talked about stay schemin because of what drake said.

Hov might easily be the most skilled artist on that list and his discography is most defiantly #1 but this is about who's hot in the streets, and who's buzzin' who's making moves within the culture etc.


Hov is still the Michael Jordon of this sh*t but you can't deny that Kobe & Labron are hotter right now.
HOv/MJ never lost a step, so how is kobe and lebron hotter than him?

I aint even tryin to sh!t on rozay, but what has rick ross done to have a spot higher than HOV?
