It’s been apparent that MTV News’ annual, and often controversial, Hottest MCs list has really ruffled some feathers this year–see: Kanye West and A$AP Rocky’s reactions–and judging from feedback on Drake’s new track “5 AM in Toronto,” fans are concluding that the YMCMB rapper ain’t too pleased about his #5 ranking either. The track, produced by Boi-1da, clearly addresses a few issues that’s been bothering him, (including that Chris Brown brawl over the summer), but there’s been strong reaction to one line in particular: ‘I made Forbes list, n—a f— your list, everything’s looking gorgeous.’ See how hip-hop heads are reacting below:
