Kendrick Lamar’s #1 ‘Hottest MCs’ Title: Undisputed Champ?

Diehard Kendrick Lamar fans have been following his work for years (through projects like Section.80 and Overly Dedicated) but it was in 2012 that the Compton MC really broke through to the masses. His critically-acclaimed album good kid, m.A.A.d city debuted with over 240K in first week sales (a big win for a rap album) and, lyrically, it also cemented the fact that he’s one of the greatest MCs we’ve seen in years. Most fans seem to be in agreement that he deserved his #1 spot. See the feedback below.
