MTV’s Hottest MC’s In The Game – Complete List

5 10 2009

Over the past week, MTV would announce an entry in their highly talked about annual Top 10 Hottest MC’s in the Game list. The list began with East Coast veteran Raekwon and followed up with more New York artists, but then stirred up some controversy by placing Gucci Mane and Rick Ross in the middle of the list. The daily countdown ended at number 5, and numbers 4 through 1 was left a surprise for this Sunday’s program for the countdown. As expected, Jay-z was number one. Check the list below (click any of the artists names to view the article) and continue reading to view my interpretation of the list.

MTV’s Hottest MC In The Game: #8 – Fabolous

30 09 2009

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Why He’s Hot: Fabolous started his Loso’s Way campaign by telling the world that it was “his time,” and the boy from Brooklyn’s Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood lived up to his claim. Loso’s Way — a concept project inspired in part by the gangster film “Carlito’s Way” — became his first #1 LP on the Billboard albums chart, selling nearly 99,000 units in its first week of release. All year, we’ve been hearing “It’s Loso, in case you didn’t know, so …” for a reason: Fab never runs out of ammo with his tireless punch lines and swag!

Album Review: Fabolous – Loso’s Way

6 08 2009

Fabolous - Losos Way
In 2001 Fabolous dropped his debut album Ghetto Fabolous, branding himself as a Brooklyn MC, with a smooth delivery and witty punch lines. Ghetto Fabolous is arguably Fab’s best album to date, with his current album Loso’s Way as the runner up. Throughout Fabolous’ discography, he released chart topping singles, radio friendly music, and still remained relevant to hip hop. With his latest LP, he decided to make it more appealing to the streets with a theme of a gangster movie. The album title alone is inspired by Carlito’s Way, hence the title Loso’s Way.
