Soulja Boy believes he’s the hottest MC in the game right now (and we use the term “MC” very loosely in this situation) and should have been on the top ten list:
“I think if y’all did it right now, yeah, I deserve to be on there. But back there, when y’all did it, I probably didn’t have the status that I have right now. I’m Grammy-nominated. If I look at the new list and I compare myself to all 10 of the artists and some don’t add up, I’ll be like, ‘Wow. I should be #1 if it’s right now. I’m #1.”
Soulja Boy was more candid when asked how he ranks specifically against alumni of the first Hottest MCs list, like Weezy, ‘Ye and Jay-Z.
“Right now, yes [I’m hotter than them]. Today, January — whatever the date this is — 2008, yes [I am the hottest].”
And then little Soulja Boy woke up. The real hip hop game does not consider the ringtone phenomenon as a basis for hotness,but it’s nice that the boy has high hopes.
