MTV has begun their countdown of the hottest MCs in the game, 10-6 will be released this week on MTVNews.com with the top 5 being announced on a special on MTV 2′s, Hottest MCs in the Game VII, Sunday night at 10:30pm. This is what they based the list off:
The criteria to be considered a Hottest MC are based on a combination of impact, buzz, sales, lyrics, swag and the intangibles.
For the 10-6 I will just post who made it, and a quick quote from MTV, Cody and I will be back on Tuesday with our thoughts on the FULL LIST.
#9 Wiz Khalifa:
Wiz Khalifa stays high, so as expectations for his debut album, Rolling Papers, shot through the roof, the Pittsburgh rapper made good by delivering a gold-selling LP last March — with multiple hit singles to back it. That success and more was enough to take him from MTV’s 2010 Hottest Breakthrough MC to the Hottest MCs in the Game VII list.
See what else made MTVNews.com, place him at #10 on their list.
