As 50 Cent says this list is created to cause controversy.... I mean not adding Em would or they hope will lead to Em ranting and raving about how he is over looked on the list and him possibly s******* on Mtv and the rappers on the list. BUT! Em could care less so the whole list pretty much failed.
Im telling you guys the list was already decided along time ago. Basically they put someone like 50 Cent #9 because they knew his fans would get pissed and cause controversy and controversy sales... Then you take the rapper with the more hardcore fans IE Eminem and you don't put him on the list after all he's did this year will cause even more debate and eventually you'll have all the radio stations and music websites talking about MTV's dumb list and so far it's working.
