Kanye West dubs Lil Wayne 'the best rapper in the world' in a rare interview where he discusses his position on the 'Hottest MCs in the Game' list! Hey guys thanks for tuning in to ClevverMusic for your daily music news, I'm Misty Kingma. Rapper Kanye West rarely does interviews, but he called in to Hot 97 radio station to talk about his disappointing NO. 7 ranking on this year's "Hottest MCs in the Game" list. The annual list, put together by MTV, serves as one of the most coveted honors in hip hop. His mentee Big Sean came in above him but Yeezy said, "I'm happy for Sean... But I feel like he should be on top 5. He's bodying records, like the way he started off that 'Mercy'". However, Kanye was displeased with his own ranking at No. 7 saying, "Yeah it bothers me! ...they didn't like 'Cruel Summer' album..." He continued with a rant, "...They don't like Givenchy Kanye. They don't like Kanye in a kilt. They don't like Kanye in a relationship." While we don't believe these were the reasons he didn't rank higher, Kanye doesn't believe he should be No. 1- according to Yeezy that should go to Lil Wayne.
In the radio interview Kanye publicized, "I think Wayne is number one rapper in the world," also lumping Eminem and Jay-Z as top contenders as well. Big praise from Kanye- so no shock Lil Wayne immediately responded on Twitter saying, "That's the ultimate compliment coming from a humble,great,extremely creative & superior genius... I appreciate that Yeezy!"
