Kendrick Lamar "Feels Good" To Be Named "Hottest MC" By MTV

Kendrick Lamar is at the top of MTV's controversial list of "Hottest MCs in the Game" and says it feels good.

The list has been making headlines all week. Now, MTV's "Hottest MCs in the Game" list has been completed and Kendrick Lamar is at the top. 

Next to him in the number 2 spot this year was 2 Chainz. Rick Ross followed at 3 and Nas at 4 with Drake rounding out the top 5.  

The list has been a topic of discussion this week because of those who didn't make the top five, according to this list. Big Sean landed at number 6, with Kanye West at number 7. West was upset with his placement.

"Yeah #7 bothers me," he said in an interview with Hot 97. "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] the Cruel Summer album. And I'm like, that's a compilation, it ain't all rappers on G.O.O.D. Music…they want to diss me and be like, 'He didCruel Summer and he can't say he ain't a part of it because he's on eight records'…[their decision is] definitely not based on a body of work." 

A$AP Rocky was also upset with his placement at number 8. 

"It's frustrating when I’m number 8," he explained to the LA Leakers. "Don’t put me at all. I need to be number one." 

Future and Meek Mill were at 9 and 10 respectively. 

Kendrick Lamar, who landed in the top spot, discussed what this means to him.

"You know what's crazy, we were looking at the years of the different MCs, and we were always like, 'Man, we gotta get on there. We gotta at least get on the list.' But to make it #1, that's a whole 'nother thing," he explained to MTV. "Feel good!"
