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

    Wow didnt take long for him to get completely detached from reality hahahahah.

  • 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.

    lmao... what an ungrateful little pussy i can see another kanye west in the making... how long before this dude starts throwing bitch fits on stage?

  • Chillin

    Dude had the worst verse on 1 Train, no way he's the hottest. He is flaming though...

    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

    Did he not see kanye in "My Beautiful twisted dark fantasy" ?... H e brought back gold, in 2010...when he was on the whole purple tip....

  • 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.

    how has Jadakiss never been on this list?.. he will season marinate and BBQ EVERY one on this list past or Present... Fuck mtv when was the last time they even played a fuckin hiphop song? ill wait.... this list is more bullshit then kanye sayin wayne should be number one... no styles no j.cole no REAL NIGGAS... fuck this list fuck mtv and fuck the bitch ass niggas that made this list...

    • 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.

  • Anonymous

    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"

  • 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

    • Chi-Ill

      I'm sorry but when it comes to this article, your list is bullshit! Stick to the dam subject nigga!

  • dadude

    Him and Kendrick are the hottest.

  • eyesandteeth

    A$AP Rocky has an almost delusional view of his skills. I saw him live (with Danny Brown and Schoolboy Q), and he was by far the weakest of the three. He needs to work on his live performance. He was so wack, I left before his performance was over.

    • Mike Curtis

      You must notta been in SLC, he went off! I've seen many many many artists live now, and no ones ever had an energy like that show. Not even Nas (my favorite MC/Greatest all time). I even met my girl at that show homeboy! Him and Q performed together at the end, Danny did too with the Mob. It was so dope.

    i agree with kanye and rocky about one thing - being placed 1 or 2 spots above future is a fuckin slap to the face. theyre jus callin out MTV on that bullshit

  • mtvfelloff15yearsago

    Any true artist who listens to Mtvs opinion has to be an absolute moron, the same people who make shows like Teen Mom and Jersey Shore are now all of a sudden the judges of Hip Hop! When will rappers learn that Hip Hop dwells in the streets and MTV is just trying to make money off corny ass people who think they know about hiphop. A$AP needs to listen to what other artists and mentors say,not BET ,not MTV ,none of that shit!

  • Anonymous

    He's delusionnal if he thinks he's the best emcee.

  • GoReadABook

    ok....I love ASAP but you didn't bring back the doubletime flow. kendrick was killing that shit back in like 09. We all know Kendrick gonna get the hottest MC title because his sales and quality of his album matched his hype. He delivered. That being said, why do MCs really care about this shit haha MTV is wack

  • Black De La Rocha

    A$AP is my dude, but he can chill with that shit. His album probably won't even go gold, you can only place so high on a list when your sales don't match your hype.

  • On the Real......

    ASAP can occasionally make a real hot song. Dude is too image conscious though. It's OK to have fashion but that's ALL he seems to be going for these days. For music...I'll stick to J. Cole, Kendrick, Big KRIT as far as the new crop of MC's goes.


    MTV and MC shouldn't be in the same sentence, number one. Number two, ASAP Rocky is a commercial rap faggot with an ego and affinity for wearing dresses, he needs to drop a classic first before complaining

    I find it hilarious how he's claiming stuff other people did before him, as his own...If anyone deserves credit, its them for inventing this shit...Not the dude biting it and trying to "bring it back" lol

  • donnis mac

    These lists are a poison. Impressionable kids and coattail riders follow the rankings, media outlets gain hits and revenue over the debating, the people who are ON the list offer their opinion and are told to sftu, and other rappers who are out there putting in work are left off. Next up is the XXL Freshman cover.

      Ok fair enough he copied his style from other people but not his name.. A$AP is his crews name and Rocky is after Rakim. He is nothing like Rock at all and if you think he's made his name like Rock's to try to attract the attention of his 10,000 internet fans then you are completely wrong.

    • eyesandteeth

      hahaha. Word! TRUE MC's originate. Back in the day, copying was considered biting. Biting has always been wack as fuck. Fuck A$AP Rocky.... Dude even copied his name from Aesop Rock. Fuck this turkey. I don't understand the appeal.

    Both Kanye and AssAp caught feelings like st8 Up GIRLS. Usually them flamboyant faggotz act like that so this is just another sign. Why would you care about a MTV Top 10 when you have Millions? Let's not forget that MTV Germany exists, MTV U.K, MTV France etc, and they are all different. St8 up catching feelings like girls
