MTV continues to roll out their list of the Hottest MC's in the Game as we countdown to No. 1. Today three more artists names were added.

 

 

24-year old Harlem rapper A$AP Rocky was one of the most talked about emcees of 2012. His debut album Long.Live.A$AP made it's debut at No. 1 on the Billboard charts with sales of 139,000 copies when it was released in January 2013.

By that time he had already dropped two hot singles with "Goldie" and "F*ckin Problems" in 2012. He was also featured on Schoolboy Q's "Hands on the Wheel" and the remix to Rihanna's "Cockiness."

Add to that his successful Long Live A$AP Tour, and that was enough to place him at No. 8 on MTV's list.



 

Kanye West is next up on the list landing at No. 8. The Louis Vuitton Don didn't have a solo album in 2012, but he kept his name ringing by releasing the G.O.O.D. Music compilation Cruel Summer, which produced the hit singles "Mercy," "Clique," "New God Flow" and the remix to Chief Keef's "I Don't Like."

 

West made guest appearances on 2 Chainz's "Birthday Song" and the remix to Rihanna's "Diamonds."

 

Yeezy also successfully took over Europe for part of the year with Jay-Z on the Watch the Throne tour.

 

Is No. 7 a good spot for Kanye?


 

Big Sean is an interesting choice for No. 6 on the Hottest MC's in the Game list. The Detroit rapper didn't have an album out in 2012, but he did release the Detroit mixtape which featured "Mula." He also dropped the single "Guap."

 

He appeared on "Mercy" with Kanye West, 2 Chainz and Pusha T. Sean was also featured on "Clique" with Kanye West and Jay-Z.

In your opinion was that enough to rank him so high on the list? The brain trust at MTV certainly thinks so.

I think Kanye made Cruel Summer to show what his people from G.O.O.D. Music can do, so yea Big Sean would take it.
