Three 6 Mafia's Juicy J recently gave his take on the annual "Hottest MCs in the Game" rundown and said while he respects the yearly round-up, he would prefer to make Forbes' lists instead.
Although he wished Taylor Gang's Wiz Khalifa would have landed on the Top 10, Juicy said he completely stands behind the annual rundown.
"Eh man, it's all good," Juicy J said in an interview when discussing his absence from the "Hottest MCs in the Game" list. "Maybe I'll make that list next year, it's all good, I ain't even tripping, man. I ain't even tripping, man. I love the list, I wish they would have had Wiz [Khalifa] on there, though. But I love the list. It's all good. Like, put me on the money list. I'm trying to make that Forbes list." (Whoolywood Shuffle)
Coincidentally, Miami's Ace Hood shared a similar stance when SOHH asked him which list he would prefer to appear on this week.
"I would definitely want to be on that Forbes list because I'm hot and I'm getting money," Ace told SOHH when asked if he would rather make a Forbes list versus a "Hottest in the Game" list. "I would rather be on the Forbes list, definitely, reason being just because at the end of the day, I feel like when people create those kinds of lists, they don't really base it off true lyricism. That's what I think, personally. I think the lists are a little bias, personally, because if you base it off lyricism, then Ace Hood should be included in that list. Or J. Cole should be included in that list. That's just my opinion." (SOHH)
Even Young Money's Drake compared Forbes and MTV's lists on his new "5 AM in Toronto" record.
It seems Drizzy felt he should have been placed higher. Or rather, he just doesn't even care about the list at all. He's beyond rap lists, to hear him tell it. He says as much on his new cut, spitting: "I swear, fuck them n*ggas this year/ I made Forbes list, n*gga / F*ck your list, everything's lookin' gorgeous." (The Boom Box)
