Theres no doubt hes had a huge impact on the hip hop world, but Kanye West is crying foul over being ranked #7 on MTVs Hottest MCs list.
The Watch The Throne rapper came in behind artists like Big Sean (#6) and Drake (#5), and he cant reconcile his standing with the course of his successful career.
Kanye told New Yorks Hot 97 radio listeners, “I feel like for them to put me at No. 7, they had to bring up things they didn”t like, like they didn”t like Cruel Summer album. And I”m, like, “That”s a compilation. It”s not all rappers on [it].
West also blamed the media for how hes portrayed. “What happens with these type of things and the people that review it, when I come in and I have the pink polo and the backpack, I”m checking all the boxes of that A Tribe Called Quest era and all that, so they want to champion it. They don”t like Givenchy Kanye. They don”t like Kanye in a kilt, they don”t like Kanye in a relationship.”
As for his recent single Cold, Kanye praised his diss of girlfriend Kim Kardashians ex-husband Kris Humphries in one of the lyrics. Aint no bar of the past 12 months thats hotter than that bar.
