Several artists who made MTV's Hottest MC's in the Game list have questioned their positions. Most notably, A$AP Rocky and Kanye West were offended by their rankings of No. 8 and 7 respectively.
Big Sean came in an No. 6. He sat down with DJ Semtex to talk about the list.
While Sean said he respected the judging panel, MTV and the other artists who earned a spot, he made it clear that he thought G.O.O.D. Music was the leader of the pack in 2012.
"I feel like G.O.O.D. music had the hottest rap songs, the biggest rap songs of 2012. You can't even deny that," Sean said. "That was Kanye's work. That was my work. That was our work. For me and Kanye to be 7 & 6 what you think? If you done the hottest rap songs of 2012 and you're 7 & 6 what that mean? Is that right? [Pusha T] be spitting too. Where was he at? He set off 'Don't Like,' he was on 'Mercy.' If you don't feel like you should have been No. 1 then I don't know what the f*ck you doing this for."
Sean added that he'll definitely be top 5 on the list next year.
