Who isn’t hotter than Fiddy these days?

One of the dead giveaways when someone doesn’t have a point is when they have to keep repeating it over and over, louder and louder, as if you didn’t hear them the first time. Remember when Pimp C died and Noz did something like 30 posts in a row, crowding out the rest of the content for people who could give a rat’s ass about Pimp C, aside from PCP jokes?

The other day, Noz was on Twitter, where he works now, going on and on about how Gucci Mane really is a good rapper, talking about how he’s a better rapper than Elzhi and what have you. I started to jump into the fray, but then I had to remind myself that I’ve never even heard a Gucci Mane song, other than “So Icy,” back in like 2005. Unlike the Black Eyed Peas ’09 reign of terror, I couldn’t even tell you the name of the Gucci Mane song that has him at #6 on MTV’s list of the 10 hottest MCs in the game.

I didn’t want to speak on something I hadn’t spent at least five minutes researching. Like these posts. Even though I figured I know enough about “So Icy” to know that Gucci Mane is hardly any better than Young Jeezy, which means he couldn’t possibly be a better rapper than damn near anyone. Anyway, I was less concerned with whether or not Gucci Mane could be considered a good rapper than the fact that MTV put him at #6 on its list of the hottest MCs in the game.

Not only is that one spot away from the top 5, which is populated with people who actually have sold millions of CDs, like Jay-Z and Kanye West, but it’s three spots ahead of 50 Cent, who’s way the fuck down at #9, sandwiched between Raekwon and Fabolous. When I saw that, Friday afternoon, before I embarked on my usual bender of a weekend, I thought to myself, Holy shit, Fiddy’s gonna be pissed! It’s bad enough he got beat by teh ghey-ass Fabolous, but Gucci Mane? This was before I realized that both Rawse and Drake (who’s only sold about 70,000 CDs in his life) were in the top 5.

It just goes to show that I was right when I wrote, the other day, that Jay-Z and Kanye West have Ja Ruled Fiddy. First he was nowhere to be found at this year’s VMAs, now he’s barely even on the list of the 10 hottest MCs in the game. MTV’s Mail Room, the people who come up with these dumbass lists, justified including Fiddy on this year’s list, despite the fact that he hasn’t released an album in over two years, on the basis of ThisIs50.com, his hilarious beef with Rawse, and those mixtapes he put out. But you’d have to think they could have very easily put him in the top 5, for those very same reasons, if they gave a shit about Fiddy at this point.

And it’s not like there’s a whole lot Fiddy can do about it. The other day, probably the same day they revealed that Fiddy is #9 on the list, I saw where MTV News had a story with him complaining about how he should have been way higher on the list. It’s since been buried by umpteen stories about what Kristin Cavallari had for breakfast – which is, admittedly, about as exciting to me as this list. (How do people who write for sites like MTV News and Complex sleep at night? On a bed full of money?) I’d try to find it, but I don’t reallly give a shit. If Fiddy were really pissed at MTV, he’d be going at their necks. But that would just ensure he’d never be on MTV again.

And that’s the thing about being Ja Ruled. Never mind all of the flak Kanye caught for the incident at this year’s VMAs. Kanye could have raped Taylor Swift right there on stage, like my boy Pete Campbell from Mad Men, and he’d still get invited back next year, if he can pull another Graduation out off his ass. This was only like the fifth or sixth awards show he’s fucked up. They would have stopped inviting him back in like ’05, if they didn’t think they needed him. MTV just plain doesn’t need 50 Cent anymore. If 50 Cent ever gets back on MTV, it’s gonna be on MTV’s terms – just like they did with Eminem, who wasn’t even on the hottest MCs list. You think Eminem wanted to take another man’s nuts in his face, on live TV? I shudder to think what they’ve got in mind for Fiddy.

    just goes to show that eMpTV is run by a bunch of idiots..

  • Moving Sideways

    I really could give a motherfuck about the list except for the exclusion of Eminem which is just a crime.

    I’m not even a huge Em fan, but I’ll be damned if his album wasn’t pretty good and selling like hot cakes.

      Cosign!! That shit ain’t even valid if EM ain’t on it. I don’t give a fuck what you think of his album. When you go a dude that can spit on verse on a song with three rappers on that very list and make the hip hop world turn their heads and don’t make the list, thats a crime. All of them cats should be fired from MTV!

  • Brooklyn

    don’t nobody takes mtv’s hottest mc’s list seriously, mtv don’t fuck with music anymore any fucking way. putting drake, rick ross, and gucci mane above raekwon? really? it’s not about who’s the best more so than it is who gets more attention from mtv, and thus who has more commercial appeal right now. mtv ain’t fucking with 50 because he’s too masculine, if he rocked tight jeans and pink they’d probably have thrown him a bone. it’s no coincidence that drake and kanye were in the top 5, even after the latter made a little white girl cry on tv. and i’ve never been a big em fan, but he should have been at least #6, by the fact that he has what was probably the biggest selling hip-hop album of the year.

  • that nigga

    Side Note: Faboulous is 10X’s better than 50 cent and Gucci. So Is Raekwon. But, all that list means is “who’s hot right now” and true enough; 50 aint put out hot material in like….,…..since Get Rich or Die Tryin. So him just being on the list he shouldn’t complain.

  • diamond district

    the list is the hottest mc’s, and like it or not, gucci mane and drake are hot as shit right now. Gucci gettin all types of features, drake has a highly anticipated debut. Aint nobody checkin for 50 cents, he’s pullin stunts to try and stay relevant in the game… Even Big Daddy Kane fell off… Hip Hop is and will always be fueled by what’s new…

  • Brahsef

    ^^ Gotta love that E-Thuggin

    Em got hoed, and I didn’t even like his latest CD. I usually agree with these MTV lists on who the “hottest” is at the moment, mind you that hottest by in no way means best. I think Em should have came in at #6, because all though he did really great numbers he just doesn’t seem to be buzzin like in the past.

    And Gucci Mane should be in the top 10. Ignorant ass shit but people bang out to his shit. I actually find myself diggin on that new single he had out when it was on the radio, can’t remember what it’s called though. Beat is hypnotic.

    I still can’t believe they gave the Wu some love. A Wu member on MTV’s top 10 hottest artists of 2009. Never thought I’d see the day.

  • sealsaa

    50′s STANS have been blubbering about his #9 status for the past week, threating teh-ghey ass Butta Man’s life and what have you for his protest of 50 Cent being put on the list.

    And speaking of Jay Ja’ruling 50, young Curtis was on Worldstar this weekend talking greasy about no-so-young-Hov, about how the Mtv interviewer made him feel like a punk, and some nonsense about Fat Joe cracking Hov in the head with a bottle back in the day. I’ve been pondering what 50 Cent could REALLY say about Jay-Z, if he chose to start a beef, and the only thing that comes to mind is gay inuendo regarding Jay and Kanye’s relationship. Other than that, what’s he really going to do? 50 ending Ja Rule’s career is debatable, but Mobb Deep has never been the same since the TakeOver. And its one thing for 50 to take some guy’s baby mother shopping to embarass him, but Jay dropped a load off in Nas’ baby mother (on his Bently back seat). There’s no comparrison.

    • that nigga

      One word: ETHER

      And Im not a Jay fan but Im quite sure he would ETHER 50. Im just wondering why Jay always gives this nigga a pass while he’s always poppin shit at Jay. This new “punk” comment cant go unnoticed. C’mon Jay! WTF???

      I think 50 kinda mad Jay got tha #1 spot and he lookin for some controversy to make hisself relevant.

  • sealsaa

    Funny, didn’t Kid Cudi do the numbers that Drake was SUPPOSED to do, what with his face being all in Lil’ Wayne’s nuts and what not? I know that “buzz” was a factor, but shouldn’t that have been cancelled out by lackluster album sales?

  • capcobra

    eminem shouldn’t be on that list..sorry..but his singles was weaker than the mariah carey beef..and 50 should thank ross for putting him on the list..as far gucci mane goes..he’s hot in the streets just off the strength that he beat that body…how many rappers did that?..niguz love snoop for getting acquitted but he ain’t shoot..pac popped off but…big never proved it…50 a victim…t.i. got caught…max b fucked up..ty ty using mace..meth ducking taxes…you could go case for case…but it’s never been a rapper that killed somebody supposedly sent by another rapper and his crew and then beat the case and come home and rap about money pussy jewelry and drugs like it never happened…that’s ghetto super hero shit…plus the nigga said he be high as giraffe pussy.

    • Mr. North

      Thank you very much (no homo)!!! You are the first person besides myself that has made this point about Gucci. Thats all every rapper talks about and this is the only guy who actually did got off and became bigger than he was before.

  • latino heat

    i don’t know how many years MTV has been doing these lists but i’ve never actually seen one of them. mainly because that’s how much MTV’s opinion of hip-hop means to me. as someone else said they don’t even play music anymore on there main channel and haven’t for about the last 3 years. so why do they continue with the b.s. lists that don’t really mean shit to anybody anyway? MTV should stay in there lane and do a list of “The 10 Biggest Hotties On The Hills” or some stupid shit like that. MTV isn’t a factor in music anymore face that fact and keep doing what you do best now. which is making reality shows that 15 year old’s and homo’s love.

    think about it. has one of these lists ever broke a new artist or gained more album sales for the artists that are on it? i don’t think it has but if i’m wrong feel free to correct me.

  • sealsaa

    @ latino heat

    For a list that doesn’t seem to hold any merit with yourself and various others (most notably 99% of the ThisIs50.com membership), people sure can’t stop talking about it. And really, every list that compiles the “best mc’s” or “GOAT” is going to cause controversy because everyone has different taste in music. People need to get over that shit. I thought it was hilarious that people actually threatened Butta Man’s life because of his verbal protest of 50 Cent’s name being included in the running.

  • http://tonygrands.blogspot.com Tony Grands

    Those list are bullshit; most lists are. It’s like the S.A.T.’s, it all depends on a person’s vantage point.

    But, I’m visiting in Louisiana for the week, & as soon as we got out the car to hit a store, niggas banging that Gucci Mane. Didn’t hear any Jigga, 50, Kanye, Drake, just Gucci Mane trying to convince me that he’s the shit, for whatever it’s worth…

    • http://www.plasticsquirtguns.blogspot.com thoreauly77

      thats definitely a regional thing i think tony. for example, anything traximillion produces out here in the bay is automatically revered. its weird, but it is what it is.

      i have lived in a lot of different places. in socal, it was all about NWA and cube. MI, it was (strangely) all about cypress hill and NY. in england we listened to whatever we could get our hands on, from de la to the prodigy to rage against the machine). in FL, EVERYONE listened to no limit. and now back in the bay its all about what slaps.

  • latino heat

    @ Sealsaa

    if it wasn’t for this blog i wouldn’t have even known the list existed again this year. so no, it’s nowhere on my radar and more importantly it’s not gonna gauge what i buy or listen to. and i think that goes for a majority of hip-hop fans. so it’s not that i “can’t stop talking about it.” i just dropped my 2 cents on this blog like i do on many other blogs on this site. and now i will go on with my day without giving there list a second thought.

    and who the hell is Butta Man?

  • sealsaa

    @ latino heat

    I wasn’t specifically talking about you, but yes, there are alot of people that took this list personal. And the general consensus seems to be that:MTV doesn’t know shit about music. Oh REALLY? And why is that? Because 50 Cent wasn’t placed higher on the list? Again not coming at you, just saying…

    And Butta Man is one of the guys on the panel that decided whom this list would consist of. When 50 Cent’s name was added to the #9 spot, he stated that it was “bullshit”, and that 50 shouldn’t even be on the list. Since then, he’s (hilariously) recieved a multitude of hate mail and death threats.

  • giantstepp

    Again, I demand a 50 cent Gucci mane “beef”! C’mon 50… MTV put him before you and surely thats cause enough for you to “beef”. We all know that you’ve “beefed” for lesser shit. The public wants some videos/skits with you clowning Gucci for this shit. Like it or not Gucci is hot in the streets, you are suppose to have an album coming out, it’s the perfect formular for any chance for this record to sell!!

  • Escobar9300

    Wait, so according to you capcobra, Gucci is justified for being on that list and is “Hot” in the streets because he aledgedly killed somebody and got away with it? Thats the stupidest shit I’ve ever heard. If killing another person and slipping through the cracks of the judicial system is what makes you hot in hip hop today, then fuck hip hop all together.

    Gucci is a picture perfect definition of wack and Ive heard tracks hotter than Gucci Maynes album on an fuckin episode of Barney and friends. That definitly goes down as one of the stupidest comments Ive ever read on this site. Give this kid capcobra a round of applause…smfh

    • capcobra

      thanks for the applause…but if you can’t relate to why certain niguz love gucci mane then you must be a cracker ass cracker…word to big rube.

  • sealsaa

    LOL @ Escobar9300

    Co-sign. That logic is just as asinine as the logic that suggest that 50 should be on the list of HOTTEST MC’S based on the popularity of his website, as well as two mixtapes that came and went. On the basis of his music? Not so much…

    • capcobra

      hottest doesn’t mean the best lyricist..hottest means the highest demand…gucci is hot in the streets/strip clubs/dance clubs/cars and on the radio too..mariah got him on obsession..mario got him on break-up…his artist oj da juiceman is on the come up..he helped put nikki minaj in position..i ain’t say he was the goat..i just gave him his credit…you notice jeezy ain’t hot no more right?..and if nothing else give him a lil credit for being himself..when his verse come on you know it’s him..can you say that for every rapper out?..i’m from south jamaica and i live in charlotte so don’t think i’m bias..it’s just the facts…and i’m going to see maxwell/common/chrissette michelle tommorrow.

  • L.a Vet

    look how many comments it is….

    50 name alone should get him on the list…. top three mixtapes of the year….

    now Boi i know u salty cause Nelly didn’t unite all the STL rappers….

    and fuck Buttaman he is a Homo and Homo’s should not judge the hottest MC’s list!!!!

  • Industry Advocate

    I hate this cat, but he’s fucking right! Cot dammit!

  • Shawty J

    MTV has no credibility when discussing hip-hop, or music for that matter. 50 Cent was ranked #9 and I wouldn’t even say that was accurate, he shouldn’t be on the list at all. 50 hasn’t made any noise in 09. Most of the time I heard anything from 50 it was just him talking shit about another rapper. “Baby By Me”, “Get It In”, and “OK, You’re Right” are all garbage ass songs, and those are the last three joints I’ve heard from him and not even on the radio. I’ve said this earlier, the most entertainment I’ve gotten out of 50 in two years was that Fat Joe diss video.

  • beeyo

    1. Bol is mad about something 2day, you can just tell. Makes this post funnier.
    2. Nigga can’t use a list he discredits as bullshit as his basis for gettin at 50, that’s stupid.But, like I said, it was funny. So fuck it.
    3. 50 really fucked Ja’s career up to the point where we refer to niggas careers gettin fucked up to as gettin Ja’d. That’s funny.
    So, in closing, LOL. Cuz that was funny. Hope hip hop gives Bol something better to write about next time.

  • Escobar9300

    Haha capcobra you make me laugh big homie. I don’t fault you though, anybody bumping Gucci Mayne clearly dosnt have the sense enough to remember to change their own dawm draws every day, let alone have an intelligent opinion on music. So I wasnt shocked to see you couldnt formulate a coherant thought, even if for just a couple sentances.

    You do you homeboy, keep bumping that nursery rhyme shit while the rest of the hip hop heads in the country keep searching for some music that isnt made for complete dummies. I’d keep going, but I already feel bad enough clowning on the mentally challenged anyways. Take your loss and run along now, grown folk are talking.

    • capcobra

      YOU MAD CAUSE YOU CAN’T RELATE…AND THAT’S HOW I KNOW THAT YOU’RE A CRACKER ASS CRACKER!!…WORD TO BIG RUBE!!…”dosn’t..dawm..sentances”..and i’m the mentally challenged one?…LMBAO..i already explained why i think gucci mane is “hot”..i did it in my original comment and in my response to sealsaa..all you did was admit that you couldn’t relate to my opinion and my logic…and that’s cool but you was so busy criticizing my comment that you never commented on the actual blog..what’s your feelings about the blog?..i say brush ya teeth and wash ya face then proceed to cyberhate..meaning state ya’ business first then reply/respond/cosign..i respect debates and discussions because i love hip hop..but you on some sucka shit right now..you not making valid points or nothing..you just trying to talk tuff…and i can’t relate to that just like you can’t relate to why niguz love gucci mane…so let’s agree to disagree champ.

    I don’t usually get in on these debates bcuz they’re usually fuckin ridiculous but I cosign Capcobra. This shitty ass MTV list was compiled to illustrate the most in demand artists, not the most talented, creative or experienced ones. Now in the state that pop music is in, and especially/unfortunately in hip hop, this is the type of ignorant ass shit that sells. AND yes ESCOBAR, murder, money, and sex fuckin sell BIG in this musical climate. I mean even your whack ass S/N is no doubt influenced by a violent, drug dealing ass, murderer. So open your eyes and close your hypocritical ass mouth.
