MTV’s Hottest MC In The Game: #5 – Rick Ross

3 10 2009

Rick Ross surprisingly takes the 5th spot on MTV’s Top 10 MC’s list. I just knew the remaining five were going to be Eminem, Kanye, Lil Wayne, Drake, then Jay-z. I’m sure Officer Ricky will use this to his advantage on the next time he goes at 50. I’m curious to see who the remaining four are.

Why He’s Hot: How did Rick Ross make it to the Hottest MC List’s top five in back-to-back years? Because this top-tier word assassin released what seven of Roundtable members consider the preeminent hip-hop release of the year, Deeper Than Rap.
Deeper ceaselessly and seamlessly did its job, entertaining throughout with Ross’ lithe lyrical delivery, which forms a mesmeric marriage with soulfully melodic tracks that play like the score to an Oscar-winning film.
