Kanye West isn't too pleased with his ranking on MTV's 'Hottest MC's In The Game' list and spoke with Hot 97's DJ Enuff about the situation.
Another controversial topic finds Kanye West to be in the middle of. MTV has been announcing their 'Hottest MC's In The Game' list this past week and just so happened to position Kanye at the #7 spot yesterday. With that said, Kanye had to respond on the situation in a recent interview.
After MTV put Kanye at the #7 spot on their 'Hottest MC In The Game' list, we were all awaiting for his response to this ranking. And calling up Hot 97's DJ Enuff earlier today, Kanye spoke on the position. Kanye said he was upset at his position being in the bottom half, and that the decision was based on his personal life not his music. Kanye also took disappointment with Sway Calloway, saying "I gave Sway his first TV..... and he aint even remember that". Kanye added:
"Yeah #7 bothers me. I think that Wayne is the #1 rapper in the world…him and Jay and Em and certain people are trust the greatest rappers of all time," he said. "For me, I feel like in order for them to put me at #7, they had to bring up things that they didn't like - [like] the Cruel Summer album. And I'm like, that's a compilation, it ain't all rappers on G.O.O.D. Music…they want to diss me and be like, 'He did Cruel Summer and he can't say he ain't a part of it because he's on eight records'…[their decision is] definitely not based on a body of work."
