Kanye West isn't too pleased with his ranking on MTV's 'Hottest MC's In The Game' list and spoke with Hot 97's DJ Enuff about the situation.
Â AnotherÂ controversialÂ topic findsÂ Kanye West to beÂ in the middle of.Â MTV has beenÂ announcingÂ theirÂ 'Hottest MC's In The Game' list this past weekÂ and just so happened toÂ positionÂ Kanye at the #7 spot yesterday. With that said, Kanye had toÂ respondÂ on the situation in a recent interview.
After MTV put Kanye at the #7 spot on their 'Hottest MC In The Game' list, we were all awaiting for his response to this ranking. AndÂ calling upÂ HotÂ 97's DJ Enuff earlier today,Â Kanye spoke on the position. Kanye said he was upset at hisÂ position being in the bottom half, and that theÂ decisionÂ was based on his personal life not his music. Kanye also tookÂ disappointmentÂ with Sway Calloway, saying "I gave Sway his first TV..... and he aint evenÂ rememberÂ that". Kanye added:
"Yeah #7 bothers me. I think that Wayne is the #1 rapper in the worldâ¦him and Jay and Em and certain people are trust the greatest rappers of all time," he said. "For me, I feel like in order for them to put me at #7, they had to bring up things that they didn't like - [like] theÂ Cruel SummerÂ album. And I'm like, that's a compilation, it ain't all rappers on G.O.O.D. Musicâ¦they want to diss me and be like, 'He didÂ Cruel SummerÂ and he can't say he ain't a part of it because he's on eight records'â¦[their decision is] definitely not based on a body of work."
