MTV Tries To Repair Damage Caused By Their “Hottest MCs” List

Posted By on May 20, 2008

    In an attempt to save itself from the humiliation of knowing absolutely nothing about who is hot and who is not in hip hop, MTV released their "honorable mentions" list, which they hope will fix the backlash from fans who said their "Hottest MCs In The Game" list was completely wrong.

    MTV says "These guys may not have made the top 10 "Hottest MCs" list for one reason or another, but they have impacted the game during the past several months. And while everyone's goal is to make it to the roundtable's controversial ranking board, an honorable mention is nothing to sneeze at."

    Either way, to us it just seems like MTV is trying to dig itself out of the "out of touch" hole they dug. MC's listed in their "honorable mentions" list include The Game, Soulja Boy, Shawty Lo, Fabolous, Joe Budden, Rocko, Prodigy, Gucci Mane, Styles-P, Flo-Rida, Plies, Webbie, Ludacris, Fat Joe, and Bun B.

    Basically anyone who released an album or single in the last year or basically if you are a rapper with a record deal, you were named.
