Scoot over Kanye West and A$AP Rocky, Atlanta rapper Soulja Boy Tell Em is the latest hip-hop artist to lash out over MTV’s annual “Hottest MCs in the Game” Top 10 list.
Apparently upset he did not land a spot on the rundown, SB went as far as to accuse MTV of fixing the list.
“THAT NEW MTV LIST IS SOME BULLSH*T. IT HAS NO CREDITABILITY AND THE JUDGE PANEL HAD NO PASSION. IT WAS FIXED AND BIASED. NEXT YEAR THO,” Soulja tweeted March 8th. (Soulja Boy Tell Em’s Twitter)
Although he landed a spot at number seven, elusive rapper Kanye West blasted the list earlier this week.
However, when it came to his spot on the list, Kanye said, “I feel like in order for them to put me at #7, they had to bring up things they didn’t like — like the Cruel Summer album.” He then suggested that his critics prefer the backpack-and-polo-era Kanye over his current career choices. “They don’t like Givenchy Kanye, they don’t like Kanye in a kilt, they don’t like Kanye in a relationship.” Kanye also boasted about the bar in “Cold” in which he raps about Kim Kardashian’s ex-husband, Kris Humphries. “I said, ‘Lucky I ain’t have Jay drop him from the team’ — ain’t no bar of the entire past 12 months hotter than that one bar.” (Consequence of Sound)
Much like Yeezy, A$AP Rocky went on a tirade against MTV’s decision to place him anywhere but number one.
“All my videos are sh*tting on any hip-hop video out there. Let’s be honest. The reason why everybody is wearing gold again is because of your boy,” Rocky said in an interview. “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.” (LA Leakers)
