Everybody’s got an opinion on who’s the hottest MC in the game, but opinions are like that one thing that everyone has. For MTV’s “Hottest MCs In The Game VIII” only a crop of hip-hop aficionados’ voices matter. The roundtable is back to pick one, and only one MC, for the title.
On Sunday, March 3, the MTV Hip-Hop Brain Trust will begin debating the past year’s 10 best rhymers on “The Week in Jams” at 11AM ET. Every day after the premiere a new batch will be revealed until the No. 1 MC is announced on “Hottest MCs in the Game VIII” special set Thursday, March 7 at 10PM ET on MTV Jams.
Previously Eminem, Jay-Z, Kanye West and Lil Wayne have held the top honor with Rick Ross as 2012’s ruler. This year a new crop of rappers like A$AP Rocky, Kendrick Lamar, 2 Chainz, Big Sean, Nicki Minaj and other contenders will be ranked. Will 2 Chainz popularity top the talent of Kendrick Lamar? It all comes down to the Hip-Hop Brain Trust. For constant updates visit Hottest.MTV.com and tune in Sunday, March 3 at 11AM for the debut of “Hottest MCs In The Game VII.”
