Whether you agree with the selections or not, I love the discussions these MTV hottest MCs lists spark. Wale #10 no arguments here, I love T.I. but last year you have to give it to Wale on his body of work. No jail stint for Tip, perhaps this is a different story. J.Cole who also was in the discussion has the bars, beats and his album was solid and did well, but missed the cut. You can make an argument for him too because he had a strong year.
