Last year Meek Mill pulled in at the #7 spot on the Hottest MCs list, but this year the MMG rapper landed at #10, after battling it out with French Montana and Pusha T. As to be expected, fans had plenty to say about that vote. Future made his first appearance on the list at #9. See the reactions below.
“Hottest MCs in the Game VIII” kicks off Sunday at 11 a.m. ET on MTV2’s ‘Week In Jams’ and concludes with a special on Thursday, March 7, at 10 p.m. ET/PT on MTV Jams. Join the debate on Twitter using the hashtag #HottestMC @MTVRapFix.
Many felt that Meek deserved more love:
@Jefe_Jimmy: Must be a joke/Meek Mill is #10, Future is #9 on MTV’s “Hottest MCs in the Game VIII” List
@KINGxDC_ Smh: MTV put Future over Meek Mill on the hottest MC this already lookin like a bad top 10
@DoseofTeaspoon: List doesn’t look promising
@ChairmanFrog: Meek Mill was supposed to be the return of gangster lyricism, but he’s not hotter than Future. ???? @MTVRapFix #HottestMC
Pusha T who battled with Meek and French for the #10 spot, gave some props. @PUSHA_T: S/O @MeekMill and @FrencHMonTanA I’m fans of both my ni–as… #TrueHustlers #MTVList #MNIMNCOMING #WOOOOOOOOOO
Some fans couldn’t believe Future made the list above Meek, while others felt he deserved to be much higher.
