MTV: Rick Ross Is a Better MC Than Jay-Z, Kanye West, and Lil Wayne
In December, Music Television's news team assembled a March Madness-like bracket system to countdown Britney Spear's 30 best videos. Over 1 million people voted and crowned "I'm A Slave 4 U" the "Best Britney Video of All Time."
And this month, MTV News opened up the polls yet again, asking its 14-35-year-old demographic to rank hip-hop's "hottest MCs." As it turns out, Rick Ross is everyone's favorite.
"I just got the news that I was voted the game's Hottest MC, and man, it really means a lot to me, of course, but it's an honor," the Miami-bred rapper told MTV. "It's something I've been watching, something I've been a fan of forever. Of course, MTV, they run the game. MMG, we're here. Shout-out to the whole team."
Including Ross, three Maybach Music Group artist broke into the top 10. Philly rapper Meek Mill came in at number seven, while
Additionally, Rozay had to beat out hip-hop heavy hitters like Jay-Z and Kayne West, and some not-so-heavy hitters like "boyfriend material" Drake and "Stupid Hoe" singer Nicki Minaj to earn the crown.
Guess we'll be watching his throne now.
Congratulations, Rick Ross.
