5. Rick Ross
6. A$AP Rocky
7. 2 Chainz
8. Big Sean
9. Lil Wayne
10. Pusha T

    now that actually looks like a legit list

  • Mike Vill

    Everyone had someone up there that I thought made no sense. Mainly because peoples requirements are very different. I mean, B.DOT said Macklemore. Really? That Durag might be too tight on you!

  • baltazar

    Why not Macklemore? He had one of the best albums of the past year and has blown up everywhere. He’s as deserving as anyone. Not saying he had the best year but he had a better year than Pusha & Sean

  • nims

    I love jay-z and kendrick lamar both but kendrick is THE hottest in the game right now. I think a lot of artists would rather have a feat from kendrick than from jay. Jay should make top 3 tho IMO

  • Tyrone Wayne

    i agree somewhat with mtv’s list cuz they base it off who is the “most popular” basically…i disagree with most of complex’s list….and why the fuck is meek mill not up there but 2 chainz and lil wayne are!?

  • Ash

  • julz

  • The Mad Rapper X
