ye-fab.jpg

MTV asked Kanye what MC’s are in his Top 5 right now.

Here’s what he said:

1. Lil Wayne
2. Andre 3000
3. Kanye West
4. T.I.
5. Fabolous

LOL @ him putting himself on the list but not Common. He also gave them his top 5 in terms of swag. Wait until you see who #1 is.

    1st

  2. Rey Says:

    Lil’ Wayne??

    Ughhhh..

    Kanye’s lucky I like his music enough to forgive that transgression.

  3. Rey Says:

    Someone wanna copy and paste his list? Plantation blocks MTV dot com

  4. lo k Says:

    5?

  5. lo k Says:

    what’s good whiteys, latinos, kneegrows, and all those who had to check the “other” box on standardized tests before 1994?

  6. Rey Says:

    What up lo K?

  7. lo k Says:

    this list befuddles me (nh)

  8. Joe 88 Says:

    @ Rey

    And since Kanye is so rich with swagger, we also asked him to give us his top five MCs when it comes to just that: swag.

    · 1. Jim Jones
    · 2. T.I.
    · 3. Young Jeezy
    · 4. Kanye West
    · 5. Lil Wayne

  11. D. Billz Says:

    Rey… Joe88… Crazy88… lo k…

    What it is chiefs?

  12. Joe 88 Says:

    On why Wayne is #1:

    “He’s in a zone. It’s like Eminem with ‘hood records. You go to the strip clubs, they know his words all the way through. People know his records. … When he gets on tracks, he gives excitement, he has a combination of punch lines, excitement and swag. Some people got real lyrics, others have a lot of swag. He combines both. His voice cuts on the track too. His lines are real memorable as well.”

    T.I. the King

    “T.I. came from being super-lyrical, and what he’s doing right now is so easy for him. It’s so much swag. I just feel like he has the life. He can go in the studio, knock a song out in 10, 15 minutes, and do whatever he wants for the rest of the day. T.I. never overdoes it; he gives you exactly what you needed.”

  13. Rey Says:

    lol.. Apparently yesterday was classic in terms of etherwars.. I missed the majority of it, then I threw a tantrum about getting Ayo’d.. You know, the usual.

    “Swagger” is my new Most Hated Phrase in Hip-Hop, besting “hater” and “Movement”.

    ^lol. Sall good man. Me and parkin’ in public places have a bad rapport. I’ve been towed about 8 times since I bought my whip in ’05. Bout 5 times when I worked with SSA, at least once when I worked in Silver Spring (and their towing fees are a lot cheaper… though still costly), and then yesterday at school. Made me wish I would have gotten a parkin’ ticket instead. I’d rather cough up $30 and still drive home, rather then walk to the towing place and swipe my card for $220. Shits discustin’ b.

  31. Rey Says:

    @ J88– I know.. I just shudder to think that Wayne might be on Graduation.. I like Jeezy tho’, and I don’t have any problem with Tip.. It’s the other 2 jokers I can’t stand.

    ^LOL. Shit, at least you don’t live anywhere close to DC, where they attempted to play it a couple times on a Bmore radio station. Or when it mysteriously pops up on a DJ PCutta mixtape, simply because Cutta works in that region.

    SMH @ Kanye having Jim Jones #1 on his “swagger” list. Don’t get me wrong, he started a movement something with those skull shirts, but that’s all he wears, now I actually seen T.I rock some slick shit, from button ups, to street clothes, to suits, T.I won the best dressed award one year (can’t remember what award show it was) & he said he wasn’t even tryna get it, w/e, but I remember kanye being upset he didn’t win

    ^I can’t front, i’m not the biggest lil wayne fan, but I can’t lie to myself, he has a few classic songs, no classic albums, a few classic mixtapes “the dedication series” & he works hard at his craft, gotta respect a man that’ll rather be in the studio then in the strip club

    ^The drought is over tha carter 3 sessions got alot of actual songs on there, “something you forgot” is my anthem. The funny thing is, that was my whole gripe (nh) towards wayne @ one point, that he never made songs, just freestyles & collabo’s, but I realized that you just gotta accept his music for what it is, You know he’s not the greatest, I know that, but he’s got his own style (that he took from 23657275562691761297 MC’s)& made it his own unique flow. Wayne isnt in my top 70, but when you give him a honest, open minded chance & listen to him, you’ll find something you like that he made

  67. G7 Says:

    Kanye is a joker putting himself on that list. Us as real hip hop heads can’t figure out the fascination with Wayne, but really he is mainstream America’s choice. I am not included in mainstream America like most of Nah.

  71. cOLD Says:

    the hoopla about Wayne is the “zone” you hear everyone speak of. To put it short and simple xanex,weed and henny.

    The right amount of each is guaranteed fluid like flow. Similar to the Rock and Heroin link. Be cautious though, cause this trip ends badly.

    What up Nahrizzle.

  72. Ali Says:

    Kanye’s a hip hop politician, he’s a smart dude. He doesn’t start beef and he gives props where it’s due. I don’t like the fact that Wayne is on the list, but if he’s talking in terms of airplay and swag, there’s no denying Wayne is everywhere (whore). I’m sure he’s going to be producing for all of them very soon if he hasn’t already. I wish Andre 3k would do a solo LP, big boi is just bringing him down, what were those lyrics on ‘International Players’?

    BTW, there are no guest rappers on Graduation, just Jeezy’s adlibs on ‘Can’t Tell Me Nothing’.

  73. MiamiDaze Says:

    This has to be a nightmare.

  74. Shawamar Says:

    I just lost the last ounce of respect for ye that I had left…since when does Jenny Jones have swag??? Getting beat up and stole on repeatedly is not swagger…and I can respect Waynes lyricism but got damn #1???

    smh…dick riding is the new hate.

  77. NoMamesBuey Says:

    Damn Kanye is ignoring the okayplayer cats that helped him out back around 2002 when he was relatively unknown. No love for Common (his own artist), Kweli, Pharoahe Monch, or Black Thought? Pathetic.

    This “swag” talk is the gheyest isht ever. Rappers should not have to be “swagish” to be considered among the top tier MCs. If these douches took this “swag rating” in the early 90s, MCs Chuck D, Q-Tip, Method Man, Das Efx, etc would all be shitted on for being to grimy or abstract or political & not bragging about themselves enough. Any of those dudes son the bitchmade Weezy Fa-go Goldberg.

    *daps all around*

    ^^^ Agree. You people are beating your heads trying to figure out why MTV drones are so fascinated with MTV anointed “Hip Hop artists”. Kanye is just being politically correct, like every other “main stream” hip hop artist. Here’s what goes through the mind of someone like Kanye: “Why go against the grain when the grain pays the bills – even if you’re already rich.”

  79. SAYS Says:

    *** No homo @ “beating your heads”

  80. Ace Says:

    I didn’t know grabbing your sack made you a good emcee. If that’s the case, I’m the hottest mc in the game. Kanye plays it safe. Dude talks party line. But, seriously, swagger needs to stop being considered as a legitimate means for determining a good mc. period. That shit’s over. I thought having verbal content made one a good mc. I guess this is me being stuck in the time when rap didn’t suck so much.

    props for T.I. though. T.I. vs T.I.P. > all his other albums. every album he drop he get better, maaaaaan
