Drake’s #5 Spot On ‘Hottest MCs’ List: Fans Weigh In

Drake had a monumental year in 2011, which earned him the #2 spot on last year’s Hottest MCs list, but this time around the YMCMB rapper landed at #5. While some fans respect that position, noting (like we did) that he didn’t release a body of work in 2012, despite dominating features, there was plenty of uproar from those who felt he should’ve made the top 3, or better yet–#1.

@INVIZIBLE_III: @Drake #5?!?! thats waaaaaaaaay too low he should have #1 but we know how @MTVRapFix panel do

@JSirr: With no album or mixtape in 2012, Drake still managed to make it to #5 on the Hottest MC’s in the game list ????

@Eurasialove: @MTVRapFix WOAH!!!! WTF????? big sean better than Ye.drake above yeezy…NO WAYYYY!! drizzy is aiight, but he needs to sit down #hottestMC

@TheWafinator: @MTVRapFix 1. Kendrick 2. 2Chainz for his breakout year 3. Drake for the most successful hip hop tour + dominating radio 4. Ross 5. Nicki

@easyike:Then your list is a God d— joke! #1 RT @MTVRapFix Drake lands at #5 on the #HottestMC list

@MegYuup: @MTVRapFix – Drake should’ve been #1 and I have a case, smh. Him and Kendrick should be top two.

@CamNoRaNoRon: #Bullsh– RT @MTVRapFix: Drake lands at #5 on the #HottestMC list

@laFille_rebelle: @MTVRapFix TBH Drake should be #1. And I know y’all know it.

@Brian_BeeBee I’m a Big Drake fan and I think he’s ok at 5 he didn’t have his own project last year

@doolywears21: Drake was named number 5 on hottest rappers list by MTV… That really is a slap in the face, no way he should not be in top 3 #Drizzy

@KColclough6: MTV did Drake dirty. 5th hottest MC. C’mon man! He should be #1

@billiegunz Why are people so sure NIcki making the hottest mc list. I mean if Drake is 5 she’s probably not even on it brace yourselves

@_MikeA1 Do yal think that Drake deserves the #5 spot for the Hottest MCs list of 2012? add the fact that he dropped Take Care at the end of 2011?
