MTV2 List of Hottest MCs of 2016 Receives Social Media Backlash


MTV2 released their list of who they consider to be the Top 10 MCs of 2016 and many hip hop fans are not happy.

Hip hop/fashion mogul and Trump supporter, Kanye West, tops the list with Toronto’s own Drake coming in second, and Chicago native Chance The Rapper landing in the third spot.

However it’s Kendrick Lamar’s 8th place ranking, and J.Cole’s absence from the list that have many hip hop heads going off on social media.

Seems more like MTV2 released the list as a reflection of the rappers who had the most music streams and fanfare in 2016.

But did they reach too far with their lineup?
