Arguably the most controversial list in hip hop is back: we're breaking down the Hottest MCs in the Game #6-10. Hey guys thanks for checking back in with ClevverMusic. MTV's annual list ranking 'Hottest MCs In The Game' is back for the eighth year ranking the most culturally relevant hip hop artists in 2012. So far No's 10 through 6 have been revealed. At No. 10 we have Meek Mill, who's collaborated recently with Rick Ross, Drake, Tyga was signed last year to Jay-Z's label Roc Nation. Meek Mill dropped his album 'Self Made Vol. 2' last year which saw a No. 2 debut on the charts.

At No. 9 is Future, who had a huge year in 2012, collaborating with Rihanna on "Loveeee Song" and Lil Wayne and Drake on "Love Me". Future's debut album "Pluto" dropped in April, and he's already got a sophomore album on the way.

At No. 8 is A$AP Rocky and it's no shock to us he's on the list. The rising rapper opened 2012's VMAs with Rihanna singing "Cockiness" and starred as JFK in Lana Del Rey's music video for "National Anthem".

No. 7 goes to Kim Kardashian's baby Daddy, Kanye West. Yeezy embarked on a European Watch The Throne tour with Jay-Z in 2012 and released G.O.O.D. Music's "Cruel Summer" compilation album donning tons of hits like "Clique" and "Mercy".
The last ranking to be revealed so far is No. 6 and it's the most shocking so far, going to Big Sean. He's featured on the G.O.O.D. Music album, namely "Mercy" and "Clique" and also dropped his Detroit mixtape last year.

So what does it take to get on the Hottest MC list? The six categories considered include Impact, Lyrics, Sales, Buzz, Style, and Intangibles. What are intangibles? Well, things that can't be taught, such as swag and star quality. Last year Nicki MInaj was the only female on the list at No. 4, do you think she'll rank this year? And what do you guys think of the list so far? Who do you predict will get No. 1?!Tell us by leaving a comment, and I'll see you back here at ClevverMusic every day for more music updates, bye guys.
