Not often you see a rap new comer rise so fast to the top of the Game, but Kendrick Lamar is a force to be reckoned with.
The West Coast rapper appeared at the number one spot on this year’s MTV “Hottest MCs” list.
Another rap new comer, 2 Chainz, appeared at the number two spot. Rick Ross, Nas, and Drake rounded out the top five Hottest MCs in the game.
Speaking with MTV, Kendrick Lamar says its feels good to be name number one on the list.
“You know what’s crazy, we were looking at the years of the different MCs, and we were always like, ‘Man, we gotta get on there. We gotta at least get on the list.’ But to make it #1, that’s a whole ‘nother thing,” he explained to MTV. “Feel good!”
