Kanye West Responds To MTV Hottest MC List
Although G.O.O.D music guru Kanye West has been on a roll with this rambling and ranting as of late, he actually made a few notable points during a brief chat with HOT 97’s DJ Enuff in response to the release of MTV’s annual “Hottest MCs” list, which ranked ‘Ye at number 7 this year.
It sounded like things were all good and normal during the interview until Yeezy put MTV Veejay Sway on blizzy blast…..and then hung up in DJ Enuff’s face in true ‘Ye fashion.
Check out a few excerpts from the conversation below:
DJ Enuff: I saw you on the list. You came in at #7 on the MTV list. That’s wassup.
Kanye: That was cool and everything. More than anything, I’m happy for Sean, but I feel like he should be on top 5. The way he’s just bodying records, like the way he started off that “Mercy….”
DJ Enuff: So you think you and Sean should be top 5 definitely? Maybe top 3? I know you, ‘Ye. To me, you’re gonna say you’re the number one rapper in the world. So, number 7, does this bother you?
Kanye: Yeah, number 7 bothers me. I think that [Lil] Wayne is the number one rapper in the world.
DJ Enuff: Wait, you think Wayne is the number one rapper in the world?
Kanye: Yeah, I just think he’s like, you know, him and Jay and Em and certain people are just the greatest rappers of all time. To me, I feel that in order for them to put me as number 7, they had to bring up things that they didn’t like. Like, they was like they didn’t like the “Cruel Summer” album…It’s definitely not based on a body of work. They don’t like Givenchy Kanye, they don’t like Kanye in a kilt, they don’t like Kanye in a relationship…
DJ Enuff: So you think that is what puts you at number seven as opposed to number five, four, three, two, one?
Kanye: I don’t think it’s them really going bar for bar. I said, “Lucky I ain’t had Jay drop him from the team.” Ain’t no bar, ain’t no bar in the entire past 12 months that’s hotter than that bar. That’s one bar! I come from this battle rap, that’s how I grew up in Chicago.
I couldn’t believe it. I gave Sway his first TV. He came over to my crib in Newark, NJ. I was living in Newark doing beats for Jay and Beans and all them and I was getting a new TV and I gave Sway his first TV. And really I didn’t really wanna even like call to talk about the number seven list, I just wanna tell everybody that I gave Sway his first TV. And he need to remember that. [Hangs up the phone.]
Welp. There you have it folks.
