Although the list contains artists like Lil Wayne, 50 Cent, T.I., Kanye West and even Eminem, New York rapper Maino says MTV's Hottest MCs list is bogus. [Maino Talks About MTVs Hottest MCs List – Watch Here] Although he didn't name any names, Maino questioned how certain rappers even could make the cut with them not being relevant lately.
"Some of these people ain't had a record in years," Maino said while reviewing the list. [Maino Talks About MTVs Hottest MCs List – Watch Here] "Is it based off record sales? Is it based off presence in the game? You got n*ggas on here that can't even rap. I don't claim to be this or that, I don't claim to be this nice or that nice, I'm just one of the realest n*ggas in the world — Two straight summers I held down and there's a couple of these n*ggas that ain't had a summer song since 90-something. How you on the list of hottest in the game today, some of them should be hottest in the game overall or past years, no disrespect to some of them on the list but you got legends that did what they did and paved the way for me but at the same time, if you not relevant today — then how are you on 'The Hottest MC's in the Game' list? They almost try to paint the perception of if you're not on the list, you're not hot." [Maino Talks About MTVs Hottest MCs List – Watch Here]
