It’s that time again. MTV News’ “Hottest MCs in the Game” debate has begun, and the streets are talking. Wale and Big Sean were revealed as the list’s #10 and #9 picks, respectively, and tomorrow MTV News will reveal MC #8. On Wednesday’s episode of “RapFix Live,” host Sway and members of MTV’s Hip-Hop Brain Trust will appear to break down the science behind the game’s most hotly contested debate. Then Big Sean will check in to talk about his feelings on how the debate is shaping up so far.
There has already been a bit of controversy with J. Cole and T.I. narrowly missing the #10 spot. There has been a ton of reaction, and both Wale and Big Sean have taken to Twitter to express their excitement over their placement on the list. “Shoutout to @MTV and @mtvjams for acknowledging my hustle and thank you to all the fans who have been supporting me since day one,” Wale tweeted on Monday after the #10 spot was revealed.
On Tuesday (February 14), Sean took to Twitter too. “Well dats what da f— it is den! Like a Gee! —->@MTV,” he wrote.
“RapFix Live” will also take a look back at Grammy weekend. Cash Money co-CEOs Bryan “Birdman” Williams and Ronald “Slim” Williams take Sway behind the scenes of their annual Cash Money pre-Grammys celebration. This year, CMR mixed a Parisian theme with hints of their native New Orleans to capture a unique partygoing experience. You’re not going to want to miss this one.
