A$AP Rocky Believes He Is The Hottest MC In The Game

A$AP Rocky has an issue with MTV's list of "Hottest MCs in the Game." He says he should be at the top.

There has been some controversy surrounding the latest MTV list of "Hottest MCs in the Game." A$AP Rocky is not pleased with the list and says he should be ranked at the top. The list had him at number eight but he firmly believes he should be at number one and he hit up the LA Leakers to explain his take on the matter. 

"All my videos are shitting on any Hip Hop video out there. Let's be honest. The reason why everybody is wearing gold again is because of your boy. Everybody’s wearing diamonds. I’m the one who made the John Lennon shades with the glasses—everybody wearing it now, you see what’s going on now. Come on, who brought gold teeth back? Let’s be honest...Honestly, I brought it back in a dramatic way. I made braids hot. Let's get off trends." 

"I’m the first artist who grew enough balls to say, 'I listen to Geto Boys, Three 6 Mafia, Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, N.W.A. and Wu-Tang at the same damn time, and what?' And I’m influenced by all of them...But moving aside from the fact that I broke boundaries with not only that, but what other rapper is on the cover of Vogue?"

"Forget trends, let’s get off trends. Lets get back to the music. Who brought double time back? Who was rapping like Bone? Nobody. Who brought that flow out? I don’t even use it no more. Everybody using this. Everybody rapping like that now.

"It's frustrating when I’m number eight. Don’t put me at all. I need to be number one." 

He also acknowledged that his father died and that he has not had time to mourn his death because of his work schedule. Rocky isn't the only one upset with the list. Kanye West also had some words about it

    The way this homo A$AP is acting reminds me of the Dave Chappelle True Hollywood Prince episode. A$AP is Micki Free, the new "pretty fine bitch" in Prince's group LMAO. Micki Free is a dude

    Pretty sure that braids, gold teeth and gold have been around and in since before A$AP was even born... I would say some rappers have gold chains and grills older than A$AP... he is a dope rapper, but haha, come on.....
  • Brizz

  • jumbajak
    How could you not roll your eyes at everything he just said? He ain't influenced a single person that I know of, musically or his fashion.

    Why the fuck is A$AP and Kanye mad at an MTV list of top rappers? when has MTV ever had any credentials on hip hop or music in general for that matter. All they do is take trending ass rappers off of the top radio picks

  • I$moke Rocks
    Typical hipster taking pride and bragging about his own personal taste in music. And then, in typical hipster fashion, he tries to take credit for making John Lennon glasses cool! Pretty sure John Lennon made those glasses cool, you just noticed what he did years ago and are trying to take credit for someone else's originality. Just like Wiz is trying to do to Jimi Hendrix. SMGDH at these hipster today , lol.

    • Anonymous
      Because he hasn't done anything and is highly overrated, and its mostly based off popularity which lets be real... Jada is far from it.

    Kendrick is automatically number one, he didn't just have the best rap album, he had album of the year of all genres. I'm pissed off that joey bada$$ or big krit aren't on the list these dudes including j.cole, black hippy and earl sweatshirt are the future of hip hop
    • ETK
      again people the list is about the HOTTEST in the game. H-O-T-T-E-S-T. Joey Bada$$, as talented as he is, should be nowhere near that list. Not KRIT, not J.Cole who's pushed his sophomore album back as much as lil wayne does. these niggas dope, they ain't hot. people need to make the difference..
  • Anymous
    Cover of Vogue? Ayo
  • Ja Rule
    I'm Such a lyrical wordsmith that i should have all ten slots on that list -It's Murdaaa!!!!!
  • Sonova
    Alot of yall dont know the difference between what "Hottest" means and "Best". Hottest has nothing to do with Lyrical ablilty or skills Hot is about relevance and clout. Learn what the fuck yall are arguin about before yall start gettin snippy. The question is who's HOT like who do you keep hearing about, not hot as in who made you go "OOOOOOOOOOH"
    • OK
      ur an idiot
    • Paul
      no hes right actually. "hot" is different than "dope"
    • nairobistar
      soooo co-signing this
  • BP
    you know what, usually I won't knock on a rapper for thinking highly of themselves... that's what they do. they put work in their craft, drop some shit, people bump them and they think they're God's gift to Earth. I don't blame em, it's hip-hop in a nutshell. but at least don't start poppin your mouth off like a dumb nigga here. ASAP brought half of those things back. The double time style, Kendrick got that too. it's another one of those cases where when one rapper does somethin and other people start doin it, he takes all the credit despite the fact other rappers may have been behind the resurgence too! but that one rapper thinks he influenced that nigga too! #1 MISTAKE IN THE HIP-HOP GAME >>

    • Tapeworm
      we're not talking about the best we are talking about whos hot, not that i like who's hot but the dude is clearly delusional if he thinks he brought back the 90s he hasn't done shit for the era he created his own weirdo emo style of music
  • Nick
    fuck this!!!! Hottest MC in the game is Tech N9ne 100%
  • RealInjustice
    The real injustice will be if Lil Wayne is ranked above Nas. It looks like he will be and that's just a crime!

    It ain't about the videos my dude. It's your lyrical ability, and you ain't up on Joey Bada$$' level as far as newcomers go. Now some of the old folks thas still killin it like Ghostface, Cormega, Redman, Sean Price...nah son. You got a ways to go B.
