Eminem Is MTV's # 1 Hottest MC In The Game. Followed By Jay-Z At # 2, Kanye West At # 3 And Drake At # 4 [Video]

Videos After The Jump

The Hottest MC's In The Game list, voted on by MTV is completed. Was there ever any doubt as to who would be number one?

Coming in at # 1 is Eminem

Eminem has dominated hip hop this year. His 'Recovery' album shot out the gate, selling 741,000 copies it's first week out, and is almost at 3 million copies sold in the U.S. alone.

At one point the album had an incredible 7 songs on Billboards Hot 100 Singles chart. With "25 To Life" # 92, "Talkin To Myself" # 88, "Cold Wind Blows" # 71, "Won't Back Down" # 62, "No Love" # 23, "Not Afraid" # 11 and "Love The Way You Lie" at # 2.

The Rihanna assisted "Love The Way You Lie" has dominated pop radio, spending four weeks in Billboards top slot.

Eminem also participated in what some have called the greatest hip hop concerts in history when he and Jay-Z paired up for the Home and Home shows at Detroit's Comerica Park and New York's Yankee Stadium.

The concerts featured guests 50 Cent, Dr Dre, D12, Trick Trick, Young Jeezy, Drake, Memphis Bleek as well as B.o.B., Kanye West and Beyonce. Proving that rap artists cauld sell out stadiums.

Coming in at # 2 is Jay-Z

Jigga simply shows no signs of slowing down.

The Brooklyn rapper didn't have an album out in 2010, but he rode the success of 2009's 'Blueprint 3', selling out concerts worldwide. He is regularly headlining shows that have traditionally been the sole territory of rock acts.

In November Hov is slated to open for U2 for the Australia and New Zealand legs on their 360 tour.

Add to that the success of the Home and Home concerts with Eminem, and it's easy to see why Jigga got the # 2 slot.

Coming in at # 3 is Kanye West.

West has really enjoyed a stellar 2010. In what has been a big comeback year for the Chicago rapper, following a 2009 that saw a lot of the media and some fans turn their backs on him after the Taylor Swift VMA incident.

While he doesn't have a chart topping song at the moment, Kanye has put out a number of fantastic joints via his G.O.O.D Friday campaign. He's also released two groundbreaking videos with "Power" and the short film "Runaway."

Add to that his great live performances at the BET Awards and Saturday Night Live.

West has proven why he is amongst the elite the game has to offer.

With a new album, 'My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy' about to drop next month, 2010 will only get better for the Louis Vuitton Don.

Coming in at # 4 is Drake

Young Money has been very well represented on the Hottest MC's list this time around.

Drake is the third emcee from the camp to make the list, following Lil Wayne and Nicki Minaj.

His debut album 'Thank Me Later' debuted at # 1 with 447,000 copies sold, and is closing in on platinum status.

Three songs from the disc, "Over", "Miss Me" and "Find Your Love" have achieved top 15 recognition on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart.

The sky seems to be the limit for Drake as an artist. He is able to pull off the rare feat of making both R&B and Hip Hop joints, while keeping both audiences satisfied.

Coming in at # 5 is Officer Rick Ross.

Congrats to all the artists who made the list.
