Add Pusha T to the number of rap artists who were not satisfied with their place on the list of MTV’s Hottest MCs

The younger Thornton brother spoke to DJ Semtex while overseas about being left off of the yearly list of the top rappers in the game according to MTV.

“I’m not out of my mind over the list, but I think I’ve had a stellar year. When you look at what I did this year, I did some incredible things,” he explained. “There’s not a record bigger than ‘Mercy’ – what, 25 weeks at number one? Twenty-five weeks at number one, and I was on that. The ‘Don’t Like’ record? That was definitely a club favorite…’New God Flow,’ that probably might be the Hip Hop record of the year.”

He continued, “Let’s just look at what I did to people out here: I blacked out on a whole crew [YMCMB] all year. All year long, I blacked out on a whole crew by myself, all year long. Nobody stood next to me and blacked out with me; I blacked out on a whole crew by myself. Like, I don’t belong on no list? And I’m talking about everybody, I blacked out on peoples’ favorites…I had emcees denouncing their fan base, denouncing their fan base and coming back with records talking about, ‘As long as my chicks love me.’ I did that…I don’t belong on no list? It’s cool, I’ve just got to work harder.”
