Eminem MTV 2010 Hottest MCs In The Game

#1: Eminem
Last year: did not place

“Something about Em this time around, you don’t feel like he’s following some type of formula,” MTV Jams’ Tuma Basa said. “He didn’t come out with that corny Slim Shady record. This time, he came like, ‘I came to play.’ And the records have this motivational anthemic type [of feel] we haven’t seen in him. He’s stepping into a new space.”

While there’s little doubt Em will take home a stack of trophies at the 2011 Grammys, he actually nabbed two this year for Best Rap Album (Relapse) and Best Performance by a Duo or Group (“Crack a Bottle” with Dr. Dre and 50 Cent). He also brought home VMAs for the Best Male Video and Best Hip-Hop Video for “Not Afraid,” while winning three Teen Choice Awards (Choice Rap Album for Relapse, Choice Rap Artist and Choice Rap/Hip-Hop Track for “Love the Way You Lie”).

He also had a handful of performances on the BET Awards, the VMAs and the Grammy Awards. And who could forget his cameo on the season finale of HBO’s “Entourage”? Em was everywhere in 2010.
