When we put up the 25 contenders for MTV’s Hottest MCs in the Game list, one of the main artists that fans we’re upset about being left off was J. Cole. This past Friday he spoke with MTV about the snub.
Yeah I saw the list. I don’t know it’s like, a list is a list. Whether I’m on it or not. Even if I was on it. If I was on that list they would find another person to be up in arms about. I’m very happy at the fact that my fans, even people who aren’t big fans but they just know that– I’m happy to see that reaction from them. But if it wasn’t me it would be somebody else. That’s just the nature of a list, so imagine when the top 10 is really announced, I’m sure it’ll be drama then Do I think I deserve to be on it? Yeah come on, of course. Even when I didn’t deserve to be on it, I thought I deserved to be on it a couple of years ago when I really wasn’t as hot as i might be right now.
