Kanye West Discusses His Spot on MTV’s “Hottest MC’s List”


DJ Enuff, who was filling in for Angie Martinez earlier this evening, was able to get a rare interview with Kanye West. As of late, MTV’s hottest MC list has been the talk of the rap blogosphere with rappers like Meek Mill, Future, A$AP Rocky, Big Sean and Drake already taking coveted spots. ‘Ye decided to phone in to speak about landing at #7. We won’t spoil too much of the call, but let’s just say it is worth the four-minute listen. Check it below.

UPDATE: Lil Wayne and Sway respond to ‘Ye’s comments on Twitter, which the latter deleted shortly after he tweeted it.
