Wacka Flocka Flame MTV 2010 Hottest MCs In The Game

#7: Waka Flocka Flame
First appearance on the list

Critics have derided him, claiming he’s more flash and rowdiness (witness his shouted ad lib “Waka! Flocka! Waka! Flocka!”) than lyrical substance.

“He’s not the most lyrical dude,” MTV News senior writer Jayson Rodriguez admitted, defending Waka’s place on the list. “But these joints, they’re ubiquitous. You can’t go places without hearing ‘O Let’s Do It.’ You hear it everywhere.”

In the end, the Brain Trust kept Waka at #8, because he’s on the rise at the moment, his songs are continuing to get hotter, and the spotlight is definitely on him.
