TALK TO ME!!!!

WHATS UP LIFERS HAPPY FRIDAY!!!!!! TODAYS QUESTION IS ABOUT THE MTV HOT MCs LIST. MY QUESTION IS HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT EMINEM NOT MAKING IT? I PERSONALLY THINK THE LIST JUST LOST ITS CREDIBILITY BY NOT INCLUDING HIM. NOT ONLY DID HE MAKE A ALBUM THIS YEAR BUT THAT ALBUM OUT SOLD 75 PERCENT OF EVERYBODY ON THE LIST .SERGE WAS TRYING TO EXPLAIN TO ME THE LIST AND WHY THIS HAPPENED BUT TO ME THIS IS WHY SO MANY PEOPLE KEEP SAYING HIPHOP IS DEAD. WE HAVE NO RULES AND THE FIRST RULE SHOULD BE, UNDERSTAND THAT THIS IS THE RECORD BUSINESS (KEY WORD BUSINESS) THE END RESULT IS TO SELL RECORDS NOTHING ELSE MATTERS. IN THESE BAD TIMES OF THE RECORD INDUSTRY HE SHOULD’VE MADE IT FOR THAT FACT ALONE THAT HE STILL HAD THE POWER TO MOVE 600K RECORD HIS FIRST WEEK. ANYWAY YALL ALWAYS ASKING HOW I FEEL SO THERE YOU HAVE IT LOL!!!!!

TALK TO ME!!!

  1. I dont see how he didnt make it. Em has always put out great work. Even tho this was his first album in sum years the fans still supported him. I love his verse on Drake’s “forever”. I think that it is a dishonor to him to not be included. Like you said this is a business. It should be about playing favorites. The numbers should count for something and unfortunately they didnt this time.

  2. I agree he should of made it! Like u said its the business! If he sold records like he did it don’t matter what he’s singing about cuz people like it . Its obvious since he’s selling! People need to look at the numbers!

  3. I think she should have made it as well…What I don’t understand is why the fuck 50 Cent is on the list…he has been shit since his second album…nothing he releases does anything now a days…always thought he was overrated, well except for Get Rich Or Die Trying

  4. I meant I think HE not SHE lol…luv Eminem lol

  5. TYPO: It SHOULDN’T be about playing favorites!!!

  6. MTV should take Music out of their name cause they only play music videos IN BETWEEN crappy reality shows. I don’t even watch that shit no more. EFF VIACOM! lol

  7. ha ha when i saw the list, i thought it was bias. But they explain and told me it was about numbers, so i dnt know. He is dope, he got another star from me, when he murdered it on drake “forever”.

    Anyways j.d i know u talking about em, but 50 cent shouldnt be so far down. But again i heard it was about numbers.

  8. EMINEM WAS ON THE LIST OF THE BEST RAP VIDEO OF 2009, WHAT YOU TALKING ABOUT J.D.? LOL! BUT HE WASN’T THEIR TO GET HIS AWARD BECAUSE WHAT HAPPEN TO HIM AT THE V.M.A AWARD. T.I. ALSO WON AN AWARD THIS YEAR AT THE VMA FOR THE BEST RAP SONG OF 2009, BUT HE WASN’T THEIR TO GET HIS AWARD EITHER. EMINEM WAS AT THE AWARDS IN THE BEGINING UNTIL THAT BRUNO LANDED HIS ASS AT EMINEM’S FACE. THEY DIDN’T AIR IT LIVE, I DIDN’T SEE IT, MY FRIEND WHO WAS THERE THAT HAD GOTTEN TICKETS TO SEE IT HAD SAW IT HAPPEN. HERES THE VIDEO TO SHOW PROF. http://www.liveleak.com/view?i=8a8_1243850737
    EVERYTHING THAT I SAW LIVE WASN’T REALLY LIVE, THEY EDITED SHIT OUT OF IT. NOT FARE!!!!!! LOL!

  9. NA IT HAPPEN AT THE MTV MOVIE AWARDS. BUT HE WAS ON THE LIST FOR THE BEST RAP VIDEO OF 2009 J.D.

  10. Nakita…its was all part of the act. Please catch up.

    JD, Em deserves it. The man has sold more recaords, had more d/ls and lyrically he is insanely the best. I’m with you man. It is a business and there are times that people make bad business moves…this is one of them.

  11. HE WAS THEIR AT THE MTV AWARDS. MY BAD, MY FRIEND IS CORRECTING ME WITH THIS SHIT. HE SAID HE WAS APART OF THE WHOLE MTV AWARD THING, AND YES HE WON AN AWARD. THERE WASN’T TOO MANY CATEGORIES FOR THE RAP ARTIST, ONLY 2. R&B ARTIST AS WELL. THAT’S WHY I RATHER WATCH BET AWARDS.

  12. BUT EMINEM JUST CAME OUT THIS YEAR WITH ONLY ONE VIDEO, SO OF COURSE HE AIN’T GONNA END UP ON EVERY CATEGORY J.D.

  13. Who ever decided to put 50 cent on the list & exclude EMIEM is clearly incompetent.

  14. I can’t believe I’m reading this JD…Eminem is a clown. His newest album is absolute shite. His whole act is like something of a novelty at this point. Have you heard him in any interviews lately? All he talks about is masturbation and over using drugs. C’mon dog, get wit it

  15. HELL YEAH I ABSOLUTELY AGREE WITH U JD, THE LIST WAS AIIGHT BUT HOW THE HELL GUCCI MANE IS ABOVE RAEKWON LET ALONE EMINEM DIDN’T MAKE THE LIST. I LOVE MTV BUT R U SERIOUS? I’M LAUGHIN OUT LOUD ON THE INSIDE RIGHT NOW LOL ITS NOT THEIR FAULT THOUGH BECAUSE THE STAFF IS PROBABLY LOOKIN AT WHO IS “SO CALLED HOT” AND KIDS ARE VOTING ON WHO’S WHO AS WELL. IT SEEMS TO ME THAT PEOPLE DON’T CARE ABOUT “REAL” MUSIC ANYMORE (MY OPINION).

  16. 10 people cannot decide the hottest mc, no way no how. They aren’t even really relevant (with the exception of Sway who kind is sometimes). But putting people like Rick Ross in there c’mon. Last time I checked soundscan Rick Rossmoved what 300k for his last effort. Album sales should determine who’s hot not ringtone sales, not radio play (BDS spins still dont = legit album sales) , not beef none of the above. they should come to the table with a nationwaide voting system and give there opinion on what the people voted. Sadly MTV now runs on only 5% of its programming content thru music video programs(sucka free countdown) so how can they have a voice in hip hop?

  17. @_blk i completely agree with u, this is y im really rethinking this whole lifer movement and if its for me.

  18. thats whats up!Numbers determines how hard youve gone and what you deserve.I believe the real hiphop barely made the list.Hiphop is not dead and will bever be dead due to certain music from the past,present and future. The staff lacks knowledge of what and who is hiphop. Personally I feel lyrics objects hot and lyrics is hiphop and style and swag is an accessories to lyrics or better yet hiphop!Em on my list when it comes to the real hiphop!!!!!!!!Mz.Mo

  19. Happy Friday!! (Finally)

    Glad to see Jay-Z made #1. Yes Em should have def been on the list…..

  20. But to keep it real you have to go on record sales and how he did dominate, so he should have been on the list. Guess they are lookin deeper for other criteria to meet and just not admitting it straight up!

    Im agreein with @_blk. I can not stand EMINEM, his image has gone nuts!

  21. I think it’s cool to say Em didnt make the list cause’ he’s a threat! What I mean by that is Em is the same today as he was years ago. I say forget MTV!! VH1 is gonna show Em love. lollol.

  22. he probably didnt make the list because he doesnt sound like the others that are hot right now, dont get it twisted im not saying that all the other mcs are sounding the same but his style is just different from what is hot right now or considered to be.

  23. its a couple rappers who shoulda made it starting w/ T.I. he gets the jam of the week every time he drops a vid from paper trail, NASIR his album was unique and still had his hardcore flavor that we r use to, LUDA cause hes a problem whenever he steps to the mic, TRIGGER no he doesnt have a rap album and yes hes a rb singer but the youngster can go hard, and yes EM he is literally a prototype for so many aspiring wanna be rappers

  24. My question to you JD is who would you take off the list to make room for Eminem? I would take off 50 or Fab……even without record sales lyrically Eminem is better than 50% of those on the list.

  25. Just goes to show u that there are haters all among us, soem in plain sight and some working behind the scenes

  26. I’ll be the first to throw out the White Card…and im black!

  27. I hate Emienem

  28. Maybe it’s just me but, I think Eminem definitely belongs on the list. For one Em is an MC’s MC. He knows how to take a concept create a song and make each verse build to get the big picture. His best album to me is still the Eminem Show. Since then he hasn’t really showed progression as an artsit but, more as a producer. There are at least 20 Mc’s in the list who struggle with substance in their songs. I think he is in a great place to be higher when Relapse 2 drops. Jay-Z ranked #1 without an album in two years but, if Drake would have had an album out I’m not sure if Jay would have ranked so high. Even Wayne was out voted. Which is really hard to believe since kids run Hip-Hop sales and downloads in 2009. I beleive that Eminem will help bring the MC back to the game next time around and the ringtone rap will eventually die out and we all will have to get back to the basics. There is nothing wrong with conceptual music as singles!

  29. i think eminem is a ass he’s rude but tanlented i gotta give him that is music leaves a bad taste in ur mouth. i hate his music cause he is forever trying to hurt someones feelings i can’t even spell is name right, thats how much i don’t care for him. i have never ever bought a single album from him i rather download for free if i like a song than put money in that mans pocket sorry i don’t play that . for sure he belongs on the list but he needs to respect other people and their craft cause no one is writing rude songs about him for no reason. i love music very much nothing makes me happier i have my fav genre but i listen other types if their good and he’s not cutting it anymore. the only way this man gets my money if he stop talking shit point blank…. if there was rules would never win an award so he need to just cool.. jay-z has the best album and i’m going to go see him on wednesday here in calgary alberta canada. #BIEM ..

  30. I agree with JD 100% on this whole top 10 MC list shit! How in the hell do you do a list like this and leave eminem out? He sold more albums than any other MC this year, lyrically he is one of the best in the game, if not the best, and name me one other rapper that is more anticipated every album other than this dude. Then MTV tried to justify their reason for leaving him off the list by saying that he dropped his album and then he disappeared for a couple of months. Eminem is a fucking superstar, he dont have to be on television everyday and do interviews all the time to be relevant. Man what other superstars do you see everyday doing interviews and all over the internet other than when they are dropping an album or movie or something, nobody! As far as I am concerned that list was bullshit! I only agree with about 5 people on the list and the other 5 did not deserve to be on there, but just my opinion.

  31. nakita JD is talkin about a list MTV put out of the hottest mc’s. smh

  32. I’m at a loss as to how Fab and Drake are better then Em. That’s like saying Ja Fool is better than Pac and we all know that is a str8 up lie. LOL I can’t stand lil Wayne let alone Drake, don’t listen to lil Jeezy, 50 is bogus, and don’t get me started on Gucci. This list just proves how shitty the rap game has become…which is why I’m even more picky about the rap music I add to my collection. Back in the day I was adding a new album every month but now, shit I can barely add one a year. smh

  33. GUCCI MANE…cmon..GUCCIE MANE LA FLARE made the lis and Em was left off…and The Chef fell unda Gucci Ross Jeezy and shall i cont…..MTV had 2 have asked a group of highschool kids…

    Muh boy teaches highschool and he asked them who Kool G was who Mobb Deep was who cassidy and Dblock…they knew none of them…he said who yall kno…they replied…Gucci Wayne Drake

    tht is the state of hip hop…now had MTV said “this is a list of the most popular MCs wit videos out right now” thn mayb i ca c Em not being there…but ne otha way is BS

  34. BECAUSE EMINEM IS BANNED FOR SUCKING BRUNO’S DICK AT THE MTV AWARDS. THAT’S WHY HE AIN’T ON THE LIST FOR THE BEST MC.

  35. It seem like 2 me that nobody on that panel really knows music….Em will kill all them dudes on a track including Hov(which he has already done). I guess there alarm clocks didn’t go off cuz they still sleepin on my homie.

  36. FIRST OF ALL NAKITA EM CAME OUT WITH MORE THEN ONE SINGLE AND VIDEO THIS YEAR
    second of yall, yes he should of been on that list. i mean hell drake is cool but no album released
    only mixtapes and no em. hell if its like that well look at dmx, he gots hella underground music he did
    once he got out of jail, extremely great music.
    rick ross number 5 on the list over jeezy???? 50cent? im not gonna knock him but mtv im in the westcoast i havent heard nothing from 50th since him and akon kill you track last year. 2008 NOT 2009. so if its like that i think fat joe should be on the list, or common. minus jay, fab, jeezy, gucci, west. i think all them other artist is over rated. WAYNE NEEDS TO STOP F***IN SINGING and hit that BLOCK IS HOT STYLE AGAIN!!!! i mean hell. HOW THE HELL DID REAWKON HIT THE LIST AND NOT PLIES????

  37. Thats the problem with lists like these is you will never make everyone happy. I personally don’t like eminem’s music, so for me him not making that list will not affect my sleep at night. The people make these lists dont define hip hop ,the aritist and fans do, so if fans love eminems music they will always go out and get his music or if people like kevin federlines music him not making this list either wont stop them from getting his music. and to me saying hip hop is dead is like a fad , hip hop is not dead , there are quality arists that make quality hip hop. there are just so many hip hop artists out there that the masses often times pick out crappy artist. to each his own i guess

  38. okay back on this list,I’m not about knocking anyones hustle but some of the mc’s on the lsit dont even spit reality or truth.I know mtv couldve made a way better list than that the ranking kinda sucked as well.Where did 50 come from okay his been through alot but to me it doesnt transfer as well as it should on his lyrics raekwon over 50 any day.Em shouldve been after wayne shyt or vica versa.I love jeezy and gucciman but they dont come close to em,now this is just my opinion but then again i listen to a lot of lyrics and when em spits,it about life verses gucci and jezzy spitting about blah blah blah blah the shit is hot,club hot.Just becuase it club hot do they qualify to be on the list?hell naw.Real recognize real the list is kinda wack but mtv is good for that . Instead of agreeing that the list was a little shady they turn around and defend the hot mess.MESs mess mess a whole lot of mess

  39. Did my baby TI make the list?

    I don’t think record sales (yes I get that this is a biz) shld be the only factor or the main one. Nas may not ever sell as much as Jay but to ME he is betta. A lot of folks feel Em gets xtra props cause he is white I can’t say if that’s true or not but I’m sure u have heard that as well JD. I agree as well that Ems new cd is not that hot I have yet to like anything off of it.

  40. I understand what you’re saying JD that he outsold everybody this year, but dude put a single out on his clown shit…it did nothing on the charts…yes he outsold every1 but that’s it…all the other guys on the list we’re consistently putting songs out..features, interviews, internet coonery, kept ppl entertained…Em was nowhere to be found…seriously the buzz of his album died FAST…dude put out 2 singles and a verse on “Forever”…THAT’S IT…the list is based on BUZZ rather than RECORD SALES…that’s wut I was trying to explain 2 u…We all know dude is cold on the mic and argueably Top 5 All time but he didn’t make n e noise this year compared to the other guys>>>JAY Wayne Drake Gucci Jeezy Rick Ross…all these guys were Relevant all year…EM jus peeked his head in (PAUSE)

  41. EM came weak with his last one, maybe this will make him come harder the next time! If you come WEAK you shouldn’t be on the list.

  42. Em hasnt been himself really since the 2nd album but he deserves 2 be on this list.. Shit, he should be on the list cause of his apperance on “Forever” cause we all know he killed that shit

  43. Aye jd can I get a little advice??? Bout to cop a MPC which one should I get?

  44. All I Need to Know Is….
    How can I contact U!

    I have a Nice Single For U!(TRUST ME)

    Are just send me ur email?

    P.S…..CHECK OUT OUR WORK OFF THE LIL WAYNE CARTER 3 #16 Misunderstood

  45. iptyzi_ltl
    hey em said he didnt do that track forever. he said whoever it was, was hard and gives him alot of
    credit but it wasnt him

  46. EM shouldve been on the damn list.,HANDS DOWN!!!! Fuck MTV!!

  47. mtv creating a mc list is kind of wack anyway. i give them a lil love for putting yo!mtv raps out there but since then their hip hop game has been real shaky. besides that it should be 2 list anyway. a list for the most popular, meaning most albums sold hot records. then another list just for the illest mcs point blank. thats the only real way cause lame ass folks who don’t even really mess with rap give they opinion on the list but they just vote on whoever cool at the time

  48. FIRST OFF I DON’T KNOW HOW THEY CN MAKE A LIST. THEY GO BY THE CD THAT THEY HAVE OUT AT THE TIME AND THAT SHIT JUST ANIT RIGHT. PEOPLE REALLY THINK ABOUT ALL THE MUSIC THAT THEY DROP SINCE THEY CAME OUT. NOT JSUT WHAT THEY PUT OUT.

  49. I don’t really care about Eminem. I just know that and am that Jay-Z made the list. For all the Eminem fans out there, I’m sorry, but that’s just the way I feel. I feel that Eminem is just “messed-up”. He throws blows at everybody and makes raps and songs about them. At the end of the day it’s not about the people you “blow on”, but how many records you sell. When he started talking about Michael Jackson like that… Then that’s when I started losing respect for him, because he didn’t even know the info. But this is my opinion. Oceans 7, LTL, Living The Life, Lifers all day. Ya’ll know what this is- SoSoDef! All Lifers follow me. (Thank you Jermaine Dupri, @LTLline for following me.)
    The people on Twitter from the Oceans 7 Movement on Twitter that all Lifers should follow are:

    I don’t know what Johntay and Tyrone’s Twitters are.

  50. Every time I see EM on TV, He look depressed? By the way, his verse on “Forever” was whack as hell!

  51. I think the list was actually okay. We have our opinions but its not about selling units its about who’s HOT. And I assume who is HOT Right Now. And to be honest I wasn’t really feeling Eminems latest cd. I didn’t even hear alot of people talking about whether they liked it or not. Like Jay-z whether they liked it or not they talked about it. The biggest thing they said about “M” was having another mans ass in his face. I think he is one of the dopest ever but to me he isn’t one of the hottest right now even though he he killed it on the “Forever” Song he had the best verse but thats just my opinion on the list categeory.

  52. I understand that selling records is what this business is about but just because you sell doesn’t necessary mean you are hot. Eminem has that many fans to sell 1.4 million. It’s like Jay-Z. Is anybody surprised he went platinum already? No. Jay-Z has a million fans that’s going to buy anything he does just like Mariah or Usher. Eminem didn’t beat expectations though. The two hottest things Em did this year was Forever, a Drake track, and that Mariah diss track.

    Em should have been on the list but maybe like number 10. I will say this though, that whole list seem about the last 4 months than the whole year. T.I. basically own the first 4 months of this year and he wasn’t on the list either.

  53. Who cares the mans a moron… and JD i dont know why your taking up for him after he dissed Mariah and you NEVER even said a word in her defence and i thought she was supposed to be your friend… now Eminem dont make some list your complaining…smh, gimme a break.

  54. First, let me say I don’t know much about hip-hop these days. I’m on the outside looking in.

    I read A&R Serge’s comment and if the list was created based on BUZZ, then it would kind of make sense for Em not to be on the list. But if BUZZ is the main criteria for being on the list, then it has no credibility. Especially, considering the fact that Em didnt need buzz to outsell many of the artists on the list. I don’t get the point of the list. We could just hop on Twitter or turn to a video channel to see who’s hot for the time being.

  55. @DONOVAN HENRY i completely agree with u..i dnt b understandin gucci mane half the time..i dnt see how the hell he made the list..Eminem has the ability to still make a album and seel out more than half the ppl on that list in his first week how many ppl can say that…and im my opinion Fabolous deserves to be up there **imnot comparin him to Em** but im sayin i like Fab i think he has a right to b up there..but not Gucci..not at all i dnt think MTV is seeing things how we seeing it cuz tht list is wild crazy

  56. JD i hear what u saying but i agree with E not being on the list yeah he had a CD but to me just speaking as a hip hop head it sucked ass. I don’t care for him so it doesn’t hurt my feeling none by not seeing him on it but at the same time doesn’t he belong and someone like 50 don’t yeah i think they fucked up there. 50 cent hasn’t had a good single since I GET MONEY. I also disagree with u on the business aspect u looking at it as a EXC but me being a consumer its about a body of music and i think that hip hop is dead because its no longer about good music but about the sells. U have great bodies of work that don’t sell but it doesn’t take away from the music and i would like to here more good music, great CD then hot singles. I love the list because Jay is # one i believe that he should stay number one until someone else can come with a master piece CD and knock him off the top he said it best about creating something that is timeless. I don’t care how much u sell most of this bullshit out right now we want remember next year.

  57. I feel that MTVs HOT MCs List did Eminem dirty:( He belonged on that list and they knew it. But MTV will be the loser in the end b/c they’ll not only lose cred with you (and other artists),but also with Em’s fans. The ones that moved all thoz units! MTV probably won’t care b/c the effect will not be instant….BOOM-BOOM-POW! But more gradual like the amount of time it takes to digest Lil Wayne’s lyrics. Then they’ll wish that they’d took the RED pill that Morpheus offered ’em!(lol)

    HIPHOP is not DEAD to me, it’s more like a Venus Flytrap. Sitting dormant for awhile until the right MC drops a verse, then it gets its BITE back.

    There are some g8 Lyricist out here, and although twisted Eminem is one of the g8est! He can spit wit da best of ’em, and always hold his ground. I don’t agree with everything he spits, but I recognize his talent. This doesn’t surprise me too much, b/c these lists are so bias that I weigh them wit a grain of salt. A Tribe Called Quest told us back in the day that “record company ppl were shady” (NOT ALL), and I believed them. MTV’s HOT MCs List is probably an effect of the shadyness alive and well today. What I do believe wholeheartedly is if someone shows you their true self BELIEVE IT the first time, so you’re prepared for other encounters. ATEOTD Eminem will continue to do him even though he’s surely pissed off, and MTV will make up a new list that will include him. “MCs that ROCK us” sounds like a quid pro quo!!!!

  58. JD I been meaning to ask u bout this list, lol Def think Em should have made it. Don’t think Drake should have landed @ #3 or even in the top five. maybe #10 or #9 since YES dude had a hot year but he doesn’t yet have out a studio album!! Also, can’t believe Gucci Mane landed @ #6 and Fab was #8??…um, seriously what the hell?? Fab put out his best work to date and no Gucci is not on Fab’s level w/the lyrics by any means. Also think Kanye could have been over Lil Wayne. Regardless of how Kanye owned Taylor Swift @ tha VMA’s he def owns Wayne on lyrics and overall content. I think this list was more about popularity than an accurate and true overall assestment of what each artisit is bring to the craft right now….case in point Em being left off. Should have added Em and took Rick Ross outta the top 10 period

    Only think I agree w/is Jay @ #1, that BP3 was the boost his career needed to prove that he is still killin in light of all the age disses he’d been taken. cause PERIOD as an album as a whole BP3 is killin from pretty much start to finish and that is the think music is lackin. not too many artist are putting out solid ENTIRE albums anymore. Kanye been damn near the only dude doing that consistently over the past couple of years!! Jay snatched back that #1 spot by doing that with BP3.

  59. ok ive been reading everybody comments and truely some dont get the WHOLE MTV LIST which personally i think it need to be done over cause hell since when is gucci better than fab…drake better than kanye and so on…this list has lost all CREDIBILITY because it wasnt couldnt been based off record sells and all around FIRE ASS RAPPER i mean i fucks wit jay but hey he juss came out with an album and he is #1 they didnt put wayne #1 last year because he didnt drop an album on time so the same rules apply to jay…EM got skipped so what the fuck is going on I CALL AN DO OVER

  60. shit like that is why i felt no way at all about that list!

  61. EMINEM IS NOT ON THE LIST BECAUSE HIS CD WAS TRASH. I BOUGHT IT AND WANT MY MONEY BACK. I MEAN NO ONE IN THE HOOD OR BLACK AT THAT BUMPS HIS CD. I HAVE NEVER HEARD THAT SHIT FROM ANY CAR IN THE HOOD OR NOTHING. ONLY WHITE SUBURBANITES BOUGHT IT. THE SUBJECT MATTER WAS TOO HORROR CORE AND ALL ABOUT MUSHROOM EATING. MAN, NIGGAZ CANT RELATE TO THAT STUPID SHIT. HE STILL HAS LYRICAL MECHANICS BUT THATS IT. I MEAN REALLY WHO THE FUCK ON HERE HONESTLY BOUGHT OR BUMPS THAT SHITTY ASS CD. RAP IS FROM AND FOR THE HOOD. WE ARE THE FOUNDATION, AND THAT SHIT IS JUST NOT ON PAR. AND JD YOU HAVE NOT SOLD ANY RECORDS FROM SO SO DEF IN A HOT MINUTE SO IF ITS ALL ABOUT SALES, HOW RELEVANT DOES THAT MAKE YOU? DONT GET ME WRONG HE CAN MAKE WORDS RHYME, BUT HIS LAST SHIT IS ASS. NO ONE EVEN TALKS ABOUT THAT ALBUM ANYMORE.

  62. You have to remember that this list just like anything else is based on opinion even if it is placed under a certain criteria.
    Its like any other list in entertainment.
    Eminem is one of the best mcs to ever grace the microphone in my humble opinion and a list from MTV will not change my mind on purchasing his music or attending his concerts.

    The music business works from the inside out so these list are not made to appease the people but most likely made to please the labels and the advertisers.Actually the list has accomplished its purpose by making us talk about it and keeping MTV relevant to music listeners,funny how it works but its working.

  63. Those dudes dont kno hip hop…its MTv man..Em should’ve been top 5..how the hell u got Gucci and raekwon on the list???

  64. chi, YOU MAD. lol!

  65. I don’t think it’s right to not have Eminem on the list. I can honestly say that he is the only rapper who cd’s I purchase. From “The Slim Shady LP” all the way to this latest album. You can’t deny the dude got mad skills on the mic. The list is nothing without him on there.

  66. Well if it’s about numbers where does Gucci fit in? Has he done some # I don’t kmow about? Or is it about lyrics? If so WHY is Gucci on this dam list!! Gucci is hot down south right now and I’m happy for Gucci but he does not deserve to be on this list. Neither does 50 for the same reason, no numbers and no lyrics! Rick Ross should be close4r to Drake for the reason he has records out his style is more versatile than Drake’s. Not knocking Drake but he has no numbers either only relates to a certain audience. Drake is nice and clever but not gritty at all. You don’t have to be gangster but you have to be able to display a bit of ruggedness.

  67. I think it’s kinda bullshit that he’s not on the list, but that’s what happens when u pick a group of people that don’t really have their finger on the pulse of what the rest of us are feeling. To them, he probably didn’t deserve to be on the list for whatever stupid reason they’ll come up with………but they’re also the station formerly known as MTV, to me . How can anybody take a list that today’s version of MTV compiles for anything music related when they spend 90% of their time stuntin reality shows??????

  68. oops, I meant to say how can anybody take their list seriously……..

  69. they lost their credilbility when one tried to argue about putting soulja boy on the list last year. This is the hottest MC list, not the hottest RAPPER list. I don’t consider them to be the same thing. MCs are expected to have real lyrics, stories, structure & composition. Sometimes, a working theme will suffice. Rappers just have to be on beat and get you to buy it.

  70. i think the list is biased because it’s usually a bunch of NYers or NY d***riders that make the list. None of them want to admit that Em can demolish just about anybody in the game if he chooses.

  71. Definitely disagree with ANTMAYS! Fab should definitely be on there! The person who should be dropped to make room for Eminem is Drake….I mean c’mon! This dude is a f*ckin bubble gum rapper!!! He can’t even step to Fab! The Hottest MC’s thing holds no water as soon as I saw 50 on the list. Just like someone said before, he hasn’t put out shyt that’s hot in a minute!

  72. EM definately should have made the list. Not only was his album dope and me managed to have BIG first week sales (and by the way he is dropping another album by the end of the year), but EM is creative and when he’s on a song where he killed three of your top 5 (Drake, Wayne, Kanye) –> he needs your respect

    I dont think Drake should have been so high up. He definately mad 09 his but I need to see more work from the younster. Fabolous needs to be higher, his new album is hot.

    They put 50 on the list because he can manage to keep his name in people’s mouth. and thisis50.com is a good look for hip hop.

  73. @john
    i’m not mad, im cool with em not being on that list
    but i am a little pissed i cant get my thirteen dollars bak for buying that relapse shit

  74. Wonderin if i can showcase my new line on this website?

  75. JD thanks for keeping it real. Now you need to make more livin the life vids i love the hotel ones! GNR

    LIKE JAY-Z SAID, “MEN LIE, WOMEN LIE, BUT NUMBERS DON’T”

  76. This is totally off subject but what was color & picture on the Outkast- Stankonia cd itself. “NOT THE COVER BUT THE CD ITSELF”

  77. omg, i didn’t even know until now
    eminem should’ve made the list. if 50 cent is on the list, then why isn’t eminem? eminem has been in the game for so long, he doesn’t need to deserve it or have anyone do a favour for him HE HAS A RIGHT TO BE ON THE LIST! his music is dope and sells millions around the whole world. he knows how to create music, he knows how to produce music, he knows how to sell music, if he knows the procedure he knows what hip hop is, and that’s what he is trying to get out there to everybody that listens to his music. go and listen to his music, what he has IS hip hop. what 50 cent has IS hip hop. go look at dre’s label and the artists that are on there, you’ll notice the ones that have been on there for a while and realise how big they have made it in all these years that have gone past so quickly. biggie smalls, tupac everyone says the music they had was the life of music and it was. and that is what eminem and his associated acts are bringing to the table. it is hard to re-create something that has been done before, so don’t let it be it and instead continue it!

  78. Em aint there? that list is wack! xD

  79. What right does MTV have to declare the top anything musical? They don’t even play music anymore!!!!!

  80. Com’on JD, lets keep it funky…Em by his own doings, made himself “not hot”. He don’t do alot of interviews , he don’t do alot of live tv performance in the state *yes I know he did the Mtv movie awards, but it wasn’t as if there was a great anticipation, as say the Jay-Z performance and that is mostly due bc Em didn’t have a single that people was bumping like that* Em seems to aim to be mysterious, almost the rap version of Kurt Kobane, but now in days that won’t make demand for You(not the brand you established) high. I understand that we are discussing the music industry, and for that you have to include the moving of units, bc that is a representation of you stance in the market place, but being called hot has to be more, like when EM dropped the Marshall Mathers LP, you would hear kats pumpin that joint around town, is that the case with Relapse? I say all that to say this…there is a strong argument for Em in the top 10, but there jus a strong of an argument for him not being on the list…I say take 50 cent ass out n replace him with Em bc 50 is in there due to his brand not anything relavent…Question: Did Em’s Mariah diss hurt or hinder him? I think the diss was fire

  81. eminem is great he is the biggest selling artis of this decade
    and i think in the future when people go back to what was the defining music
    in the 00’s em will deffo be on that list
    and yeah also agree with everyone
    else MTV is wack i don’t know anyone who watches that shit

  82. its interesting to hear that he didnt make the list, love him or hate him, hes done alot for the hip hop game and to leave him out is very disrespectful, I dont mean to b disrespectful to any 1 but for a white guy that raps u gotta give him props for what he has done. and hes 1 of a kind I have yet to see another white guy rap. but yea MTV has lost its status as the number 1 place for music videos. even music videos these days arent as good. they dont have the wow factor any more even music artists these days u dont c dance and sing or have clasic dance routines. I miss the days of mj janet and all those elborate story like music videos.

  83. Wats good JD and the Life Crew I give y all nuthing but respect and Aloha we on the island of Oahu Hi I’m a Young Afikan Man Livng out here and Man I tell you they need a B 12 shot of some real Hip Hop rap whatever they call the shit out here I luv My Oakland Ca music but good music always appeals to me. JD you should bring them some REAL Entertainment So someone can get a hold of this niche market it’s small but loyal. If you can’t find a solid promoter Holla at your folks Im not a promoter but I am about ACTIVITY aka GET SHIT DONE. But on da real HAWAII needs HELP all there moms and pops stores are closed you have to go to Best buy or Walmart to get a CD and thta’s crazy, But the Native’s luv to do the Damm thing they just don’t know how to do it besides watching TV or the NET http://www.dontknow3.com or [email protected] Peace and Keep It Moving My Big Brother been a fan since Kriss Kross I never really liked them even though I was young I was on that TOO SHORT at 11. So You already know Kriss Kross was not getting it for me but it was funny to see Big Bro digging that shit. Holla Black

  84. Hell yeah should of made it!!! In my opinion Drake should not have thats why hip hop is dead were is the structure or rules??? Drake has not even released an album i believe in paying your dues and he hasnt yet how could he even be on there with out selling 1 album! thats crzy to me! dont get me wrong im not hatting i love Drake as an artist but he came b4 kanye?? who sold crazy numbers!! I feel Em should have been #2 under J (my fav of course lol)

  85. Me personally I’m not too happy about the list. I’m disappointed that T.I. and Eminem didn’t make the list, I mean Eminem is back and better than ever. He’s proven that in his record sells. And T.I. is great regardless, he’s does so much before he went to jail and not only sold records but he did so much for his fans before he went in. So yea I’m mad that they didn’t make the list. Also I’m pissed that Gucci Mane was on the list let alone be on the list before Fabolous and Raekwon. And why the hell is 50 on the list???? 50 is wack now. It’s like they’re putting anyone on the list, I wouldn’t be surprised if they put Soulja Boy on the list next year talking bout “he’s the greatest since Tupac” SMH lol. But on a brighter note, Jay-Z is #1….at least they got something right lol.

  86. i made a huge mistake on the forever track with eminem. i was thinking of track emotion that he said isnt him but dude was made extremely talented, and has no idea who he was

  87. and another thing how can yall forget about crack a bottle, 3am, underground, insane, and beautiful those track are crazy

  88. There list is more like a whos hot right now list..they hardly have all the best mc’s on the list..with Jigga and Wayne they got it right and @NeeNee girlllllllllllllll Lil wayne is a lyrical genius and he’s creative ..he is a hot mc!

  89. There=Their i dont want ne of yall phucking with me about being phonetically correct and spelling in the right tense ^^lookin up lol

  90. I think he should have been on the list. It just shows where the industry is today.

  91. I feel that certain people only give a certain amount of credibility when it’s due some of the people that are on the list leaves me confused in the head. I mean 50 cent for instant I remember when I saw the commercial for the list when they were sitting at the table dicussing it they were like 50 cent mainly because he was the most talked about subject this year but in nationality he wasnt this year was mainly TI because we all wanted to know what and when he was leavin and the music he was placing out I feel like with the 50 cent thing with him being on the list is that he is not hot anymore he dont make hot music anymore at all his last album with triple plastic and I NOTICE that every time he places out a album it always hasto be competition with him just like when he put his damn album out on the same day Kanye’s Graduation came out and he lost to that and word was that he was trynna bring out his album on the day as Jay Z he just want every time his album come out he want it to be this BIG DAY IN HIP HOP but in NATIONALITY he AINT BIG IN HIP HOP anymore

  92. Is a lyrical genius???? Really? Have you listened to his lyrics? ‘A venereal disease like a menstrual bleed’??? Seriously…how the fuck is that genius? He has the money for beats to make his songs song good and some lyrics no one can understand, but flows with the beat. He is good for club sales and catchy songs, which sadly enough, sells. Seriously, read the lyrics to this song and tell me he’s a genius

  93. i feel like EM should have definitely been on the list Gucci is a cool rapper but I don’t think he is one of the top ten. (Luda) they know should have made the list, and T.I.

  94. LIFERS IF UR ON TWIITER MAKE SURE U ARE FOLLOWING THE TEAM @OCEANS7LTL!!!

  95. YEAH TO ME 50 AINT BEEN POPPIN SINCE I GET MONEY, WTF GUCCI DOING ON THAT SHIT I KNOW HE BEEN EVERYWHERE BUT LYRICAL CONTENT ALONE GUCCI ASS SHOULDN’T HAVE MADE THE LIST, I WOULD LIKE TO SEE JAY AND EM BATTLE IT OUT FOR THE NUMBER 1 SPOT…I STILL WISH EM WOULD STOP MAKING THESE CLOWN ASS RECORDS THO IF HE COME ON SOME HARD SHIT HE WOULD BE A PROBLEM LYRICALLY HE WOULD BE THE BEST RAPPER ALIVE

Get at us 1 (205)572-3242 if possible. That’s whats up take care and keep doing what ya doing man.

  97. Now imma be real we all kno dat Em is 1 of the greatest of all time… But based off the list dat MTV put out… I think it’s right… But their theme and title was wrong.. They should have left the hottest MCs in the game out and named it somethin else because the list fit a category more on the commercial hype and on T.V. side because if u look at the list these are the most talked about names RIGHT NOW..

    GOOD EXAMPLE..
    when Michael Jackson came back in 01 if I’m not mistakin with that invinsible album.. Dat shit sold like crazy, but if MTV had a hottest pop singer list out he wouldn’t have made it in that year because of the newer and more talked about artist. Feel Me?

  98. I know it’s a business, but sales doesnt mean a great cd. It does mean you have a great fan base and marketing. there are many shitty CDs (not only rap) that sold well. So are we talking sales or quality?

  99. J.D. This Game Tyte getting at ya again 1 (205)572-3242 24/7 myspace.com/gangstafiedrecordings gametyte.com chekc us out bro. Holla! Holla! If you ready to keep clocking them dollars we bout to murder!!!!!!!!!!!!
