The 'Clique' rapper blasts the result, which saw him named the seventh hottest MC in the game.

Kanye West has hit out at MTV's annual Hottest MC In The Game list after he was named the seventh best rapper in the world.

The 'Monster' rapper said he was "bothered" by the result, which placed him behind the likes of Drake and Big Sean.

In a phone interview with Hot97, Kanye said the list was "definitely not based on a body of work".

He said: "I feel like in order for them to put me as number seven they had to bring up things they didn't like. They didn't like the 'Cruel Summer' album. And I'm like, 'That's a compilation! It ain't all rappers on G.O.O.D. Music!'"

When asked further about why he thought he was named in seventh position, Kanye responded: "Possibly it could just be like overall rap MC swag, you know what I'm saying?



"What happens is with them, with these type of judges and people who review it, when you come in, I have the pink polo and the backpack, then I'm checking all the boxes - that Tribe Called Quest era and J Dilla and all that, you know, so they want to champion it.

"They don't like Givenchy Kanye. They don't like Kanye in a kilt. They don't like Kanye in a relationship [with Kim Kardashian]."

The rapper also suggested that MTV's Sway should have shown him more loyalty after he gave the correspondent his first TV.
