Kanye West Slams MTV Over Low "Hottest MCs" Ranking, Sort of Blames Kim Kardashian

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Kanye West is not pleased about his low ranking on MTV's "Hottest MCs List" ... or really anything in which he is ranked or otherwise considered less than the all-time best.

He knows just who to blame for the perceived snub, too.

West was ranked seventh on the MTV list, behind #5 Drake and #6 Big Sean (only part of the list has been released), and wasn’t shy about sharing his outrage.

The outspoken rapper went off on New York’s Hot 97 station Tuesday, defending his rapping skills and claiming it's all due to a personal dislike.

“Number seven bothers me,” West complained to DJ Enuff.

“I feel like for them to put me at number seven, they had to bring up things they didn’t like,” he continues. “It’s definitely not about a body of work."

“Possibly it could be about overall rap MC swag.”

West, who predicted that Lil Wayne would be #1 on the list, went on to blame his high-profile reality TV lover ... sort of, in a roundabout way.

He never mentioned Kim Kardashian by name, but theorized:

“What happens with these type of judges and the people that review it, when I come in and I have the pink Polo and the backpack, then I’m checking all the boxes of that A Tribe Called Quest era and J Dilla all that, [then] they want to champion it."

On the flip side, however, he ranted, "They don’t like Givenchy Kanye. They don’t like Kanye in a kilt, they don’t like Kanye in a relationship.”

What do you think? Is he really the #7 rapper alive and no better? Who do you think is #1? And has dating Kim hurt Kanye's cred?

Here we go again, if something happens not so pleasing with Kim's boyfriend, you can always blame Kim. He actually never once mentioned her by name, I don't know why you people would even talk about Kim, other than her being the scapegoat. Then again, you people are the type who believe she really has a negative impact on her boyfriends careers, even though the proof is nil. I didn't understand half of what Kanye said, so maybe he did make a reference to Kim. Can someone translate?


I do believe that sometimes people vote for people based on their personal likes or dislikes cur after all kanye won 3 Grammy awards for his music and a lot of those rappers mentioned weren't even acknowledged by the Grammy awards. They could be skittles jealous


mark these words: Kim will be a stone in his shoe for his music career.
................Kim belongs to me, YOU BLACK F*GGOT!!

@ abe

Lets get something straight Abraham, Kim Kardashian doesn't belong to you or Kanye West there's only one person that she will always and forever belong to...and that's her child to be and her manager momma. Plain and simple. So get over yourself dude and stop calling people f*ggots, it makes you look like you actually had s a chance in hell with Kim K. Which you don't cause if you did, you'd be with her instead of Kanye West right? Right. So suck it up deal with your hard luck and move on in life OK you biggot.
