MTV’s “Hottest MCs In The Game” #8: A$AP Rocky (Video)

blame it on Illy March 4, 2013

From the Rick Owens leathers to the Balenciaga finery, there’s no denying A$AP Rocky is a certified fashion killa (you can check his influence in other rapper’s closets). But the Harlem upstart spits more than designer labels from that gold-plated mouth. He followed his lean-drenched mixtape, Live.Love.A$AP, with a chart-topping debut that shows off his versatility and a penchant for crossing state lines when it comes to flow.

    No one cares about these, but since Im watching…. Rocky should be above Big Sean. The debate should be between Kanye and Rocky for #6. And these fools yapping about lyrics why is Future on this crap?

  • the realest

    ^ cuz that nigga all over the radio and clubs. thats why. future.

  • good stuff

    fuck I may not agree with these guys most of the time but them calling Rocky out on his piece of shit lyrical content is a relief. I thought I was the only one out here who thought Rocky sucks at talking about anything

    MTV’s decision making goes like this….

    -Let’s put Kanye on there, but low, and behind someone weak from his own camp so he gets mad and gives this list publicity

    -Let’s put on all the artists who gives us access and interviews and treats us well so they continue to do so

    -Let’s put a word like “hot” to describe it so we can do whatever we want with it and have a cop out excuse that the word hot can be anything
