MTV’s Hottest MCs list isn’t worth taking seriously for a variety of reasons. For one, 8 of the 10 rappers on the list are under the Universal umbrella. And for those that don't know, MTV and Universal are business partners.

The 2009 Hottest MCs in the Game list is based on an MC’s achievements of the moment, not an entire career. The criteria are based on a combination of mic skills, buzz, commercial success (sales and airplay), business ventures, Web presence, and impact. [MTV]

Eminem, who didn’t make the list, definitely has mic skillz, buzz, and commercial success. As a matter of fact, Em’s mic skills and commercial success is rivaled only by Jay-Z .

Here’s what Jay-Z , who earned the #1 spot, had to say about his #1 spot on the list and Eminem’s absence.

“MTV, Thanx for this nod of appreciation. Although I don’t strive to be ‘hot’ for any particular year, I thank you for the acknowledgment. My whole goal is to be recognized as the best ever. I created the term ‘best rapper alive’ as a sign of respect to my fallen comrades (Biggie and Tupac). I believe I’ve allowed a significant grace period, and I believe I would not be respecting myself if being the absolute best was not my goal, and that’s why I continue to push myself until exhaustion … salute.

“Sidebar: Kanye moment if I may … Eminem?!?! I think you do the credibility of this list a disservice if you don’t thoroughly explain his omission. As of this second he has the highest selling rap album of the year and a scene stealing verse on the best ‘posse’ cut of the year . (*Hands mic back to Taylor Swift … and nobody was harmed, I apologize in advance.)”


JAY-Z SOUNDS LIKE HOW I FELT WHEN THIS LIST DROPPED...
