Hottest MCs In The Game

#1-JayZ

Spit Fire:

“A hundred million to the good and I’m still talkin’ yayo/ At a snail’s pace I won this race that y’all trail/ Uh, uh, Blueprint’s for sale/ Followin’ my footprints, you can’t fail/ Set sail, I used to duck shots but now I eat quail/ I’ll probably never see jail/ Each tale contains more of the truth/ Of the statue allows me to go into detail/ Uh, close your eyes you can smell/ Hov’s the audio equivalent of Braille/ That’s why they feel me in the favelas in Brazil/ And Waterhouse, ’cause real recognize real.” (from “Real As It Gets”)

Co-Signer: Mary J. Blige “My favorite MC right now: Jay-Z. Forever more it will be Jay-Z. Jay-Z’s raised all these kids: the Drakes, the Lil Waynes. I love and respect them because they respect him for giving that gift. Jay-Z is definitely at the top of my list. That’s why we love him, he keeps going and elevating and blessing the new generation. You can’t lose like that.”

“All my music and emotions is based off real truth,” Jay said recently. “I believe that’s why I’m here and still competing for VMA nominations and Grammys every year. [Eleven] #1 albums in a row — that’s not something you can doctor. I can make the greatest marketing plan in the world … but I can’t make that happen unless that’s some truth under there.”

 

#2-Lil’ Wayne

Spit Fire:

“Pardon the swag, but b—h, its Car-tay/ Long bread, I don’t eat shortcake/ How come I can’t miss a woman like I can’t miss court dates?/ Cheese, but she’s not in this portrait/ Life’s fine, but I do not portray/ And I’mma f— the world, but this is just foreplay/ Tired of hearing bullsh–, bring on the cow sh–/ Haven’t met a smell that’s stinkier than our sh–.”

While other members of Young Money, such as female standout Nicki Minaj, have shown tremendous personality and presence on the mic, the Drake/ Wayne tag team on freestyles and singles such as “Ignant Sh–” “Every Girl,” “Successful” and the all-star team-up of “Forever” (also featuring Kanye West and Eminem) has been lyrically exhilarating, carpeted with ferocious quotables. The prolific duo has planted the flag for Young Money’s takeover.

Wayne’s trusted stamp of quality has even given his career-long recording home, Cash Money Records (of which Young Money is an offshoot), an added rejuvenation. Veteran the Birdman has featured his stepson Weezy on two concrete hits: “Always Strapped” and the current “Money To Blow.” Meanwhile, newcomers Jay Sean and Kevin Rudolf have been able to ride the Wayne bandwagon to the top of the charts with the Weezy-guested hits “Down” and “Let It Rock,” respectively.

Co-Signer: Mary J. Blige “My favorite MC right now: Jay-Z. Forever more it will be Jay-Z. Jay-Z’s raised all these kids: the Drakes, the Lil Waynes. I love and respect them because they respect him for giving that gift. Jay-Z is definitely at the top of my list. That’s why we love him, he keeps going and elevating and blessing the new generation. You can’t lose like that.”

[Eleven] #1 albums in a row — that’s not something you can doctor. I can make the greatest marketing plan in the world … but I can’t make that happen unless that’s some truth under there.”

 

#3-Drake

Spit Fire:

“Private flights back home/ No stop over, still spitting that sh– that they shot Pac over/ The sh– my mother look shocked over/ Yeah, but with a canvas I’m a group of seven/ A migraine, take two Excedrin/ I’m the one, twice over, I’m the new 11/ And if I die I’mma do it repping … Coolest kid out baby, word to Chuck Inglish/ Count my own money, see the paper cut fingers/ My song is your girlfriend’s waking-up ringer/ Heh, or alarm, or whatever/ She be here at six in the morn if I let her … Make pasta, rent a movie, called hoes over/ Rest in peace to Heath Ledger, but I’m no joker.” (from “Ignant Sh–” freestyle)

Co-Signer: Lil Wayne “That kid is honestly almost to the respect [level] of talking about one of the greatest,” Lil Wayne said. “Like how we talk about Big, he’s almost that and he ain’t dropped. He don’t have an album. Then he’s singing — that takes away from the respect of an artist. So for him to do it and maintain that respect and maintain that popularity, I think that’s enough said. But I heard him a long time ago. When I heard him, I said, ‘He needs to be in my clique to make me stronger. Let’s go!’ “

 

#4-Kanye West

Spit Fire:

“Welcome to the wonderful world of gold-plated Earl/ ‘Cause everything I throw up, blow up/ Talking to the girl, she said, ‘Know what? Grow up, you nasty’/ I don’t understand why they trippin’, if you ask me/ Flow is just the nicest, I admit the propane I just spit [will] probably/ Just raise the gas prices/ Everybody in the club/ Try and get as fresh as me/ ‘What you on dog?/ Trying to stay recession free?’/ And spit refreshingly, when I rock the stadi-eem” (from “Ego” remix)

Co-Signer: Drake “Kanye West, much like myself — I feel like he really knows emotion. Emotion is something you feel. It’s very hard to depict or verbalize emotion. Artists, when a painting can make you feel something, it’s a phenomenal piece of art. When a song can make you feel something, that’s a phenomenal creation. Kanye’s verses really resonate with me.”

 

#5-Rick Ross

Spit Fire:

“17, tryna man up/ Feed the fam boy, I put that on these damn goods/ All I got was diabetes and a damn hug/ People talkin’ down, callin’ me a damn scrub/ Young n—as, all you wanna do is roam free/ On your own feet, gotta cook your own beef/ I’m too cool for lame dudes to ridicule/ I laugh while I’m doing laps in the swimmin’ pool/ I don’t owe you n—as nuthin’/ Call me two fingers when you see a n—a stuntin’/ Black Phillip Drummond limousines of the Hummer/ Penthouse suite, pretty beach, I call her summer” (from “Usual Suspects”)

 

#6-Gucci Mane

Spit Fire:

“Now baby girl done dumped me, she no longer wants me/ I’m no longer hired, she says that I’ve been fired/ Onto the next one, more fish in the sea/ Girls are like buses: Miss one, next 15, one’s comin’/ Gucci Mane crazy and his ice game stuntin’/ Swag so stupid, still the b—h straight dumped me” (from “Break Up”)

 

#7-Jeezy

Spit Fire:

“These b—hes talk sh– out the same mouth they kiss you/ These n—as kiss ass with the same mouth that dis you/ Eww! You n—as disgust me/ And they ain’t talkin’ ’bout sh– unless they discuss me/ Let’s talk about how I’m killin’ everything I touches/ Or how I walked in this game with no crutches/ No Diddy, no Dupri, no Dr. Dre/ No Cash Money from Baby and no Rocs from Jay/ And I’m still here!” (from “The Way (Intro)”)

“We got to stand up,” Young Jeezy told MTV News. “We got to be ‘We the people’ — it’s on us. That’s what we got to do. We got to stick together. I really wanted to get me on [The Recession], expressing my feelings, my concerns about what’s going on. I wanted to make good music around this time, but I also wanted to drop a couple gems about what’s going on in the economy and stuff like that. Sometimes we look over it. We don’t tap into it until election time.

 

#8-Fabolous

Spit Fire:

“These b—hes talk sh– out the same mouth they kiss you/ These n—as kiss ass with the same mouth that dis you/ Eww! You n—as disgust me/ And they ain’t talkin’ ’bout sh– unless they discuss me/ Let’s talk about how I’m killin’ everything I touches/ Or how I walked in this game with no crutches/ No Diddy, no Dupri, no Dr. Dre/ No Cash Money from Baby and no Rocs from Jay/ And I’m still here!” (from “The Way (Intro)”)

Right out the gate, he had big radio and club records with “Throw It in the Bag” (and its sweltering remix, “Everything, Everywhere, Everyday”) and his latest, “Money Goes, Honey Stay” (He had the pull to not just get the beat and chorus for the record from Jay-Z, but he also scored a rare Hov cameo in the video). The rest of the album is bone-crunching: his unprecedented candor about his newborn son on “Stay,” the playful pathos of “Last Time” and the outright audacity on the “The Way (Intro).” He didn’t just play on his home field, either: Loso also came with numerous but diverse guest appearances alongside Rick Ross, The-Dream, Red Cafe, Ryan Leslie, Slim from 112, Lil Wayne, Ne-Yo and Jamie Foxx.

Like a lot of our other Hottest MCs, Fab has utilized the Web — but not just to give insight on what’s going on with his career, but he’s also introduced his followers to Fabolous the comedian. He’s a one-man Def Comedy Jam, joking on everyone from Bow Wow and T-Pain to Flo Rida. A testament to Loso’s popularity, when he speaks on topics on his Twitter page (such as Lil Mama’s VMA stage-crash), they become trending topics.

 

#9-50 Cent

Spit Fire:

“They say I ain’t lyrical, they say I ain’t a miracle/ I say some hard sh–, so they say I ain’t spiritual/ They act like they know God better than me/ I know ‘God Allah,’ he used to pump crack up the streets/ Allahu akbar, clap and run through your backyard/ Let the Mac tear half of your back off/ This is my block, my spot I adhere/ I’m a Southside n—a to the bone, get that clear.” (from “Michael Jackson Freestyle”)

 “I made a mistake,” Fif told MTV News recently. “Early on [in my career], I said, ‘They’ll get the trophy, I’ll get the checks.’ That’s because I wasn’t receiving the acknowledgement based on the aggressive content I was putting out. I’ve been nominated for 16 Grammy Awards and still ain’t got no trophies. Largest debut in hip-hop to date — they just ignored it when it was time to give the trophies out. So I just started saying, ‘They can have the trophies, and I’ll have the checks.’ That didn’t mean that I didn’t have love for the actual art form. But to give a basic answer that people would understand, I would be secure with my life, I’ll continue to make music, but I won’t be in front of them and get recognized. I’ll get a lifetime-achievement award after based on my full body of work. At that point, it’ll be too much for them to ignore. The guy that’s trying to get a record deal right now, he should be writing with very strong passion. Right now, he’s in competition with 50 Cent, and I’m writing like I need a record deal. It’s tough for him.”

 

#10-MC Rakewon

Spit Fire:

“Broad-day jungle, living with the rodents/ The goons’ll run through, blow a bag and hunt you/ Always flaky, callused hands/ My mans, come through the avenue, Swiss cheese patrons/ Blood that flood the hall, every head’ll drop/ Jump in the Maybach, switch the station/ These rap n—as is wash, hang ’em on the pole, no head … Famous for my kitchen knives, rings and the fifths are stainless/ Gun down your trooper, grenade your coupe up/ Plain and simple n—as is poo-butt/ F— with my crew: what?” (from “Canal Street”)
