It looks like Kanye West isn’t the only emcee not happy with his positioning on MTV’s Hottest MCs In The Game list, as A$AP Rocky has also voiced his opinion on positioning. The young Harlem rapper sat down with the DJ SourMilk and Justin Credible of the L.A. Leakers and shared that he wasn’t to happy with coming ranked in at No. 8.
I didn’t like that.
I’ve been directing my videos since 22, I’m 24-years-old. All of my videos are sh***ing on any hip-hop video out there let’s be honest, the reason everyone’s wearing gold again is because of your boy. Everybody’s wearing diamonds, I’m the one who made glasses with the John Lennon shades with the glasses going on now. C’mon who brought gold teeth back? I’m just being honest.
I’m the first artist that grew enough balls to say I listen to Geto Boys, Three 6 Mafia, Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, N.W.A., and Wu-Tang at the same damn time, what! And I’m influenced by all of them.
Who brought double-time back? Who was rapping like Bone? Nobody.
Everybody’s rapping like that now, it’s frustrating when I’m number eight don’t put me on it at all.
