MTV Unveils Hottest MC’s Nomination List


It’s that time of year again and MTV has announced its top spitters in contention for its Hottest MC’s In The Game List.

MTV will announce the bottom 5 next week and will show the debate for the Top 5 on February 19 @ 10:30 P.M. on MTV2.

Can’t wait to see how this list turns as several people up here seem to have made the list because of longevity but didn’t drop anything remotely hot this year but that’s for them to decide.

Peep the list after the break and let us know who you think shouldn’t be on the list and who was overlooked.  As usual this will be one monster debate to watch.


2 Chainz,
50 Cent
Big Sean
French Montana
Jim Jones
Kanye West
Lil Wayne
Lloyd Banks
Meek Mill
Nicki Minaj
Red Cafe
Rick Ross
Wiz Khalifa
Young Jeezy

    J. Cole, overlooked. Gold debut album and platinum single out of no where. Some people on this list haven’t done that in a while. Is this the hottest mc’s still in the game or the hottest mc’s for 2011?
