Pusha T isn’t one to hold his tongue. Like his G.O.O.D. Music boss before him, the Wrath of Caine rapper griped about MTV’s Hottest MCs in the Game list during a phone call with BBC Radio 1Xtra’s Semtex. Pusha said he believes he should have been on the list for the impact he made in 2012, not only for his contributions on records like “Mercy,” but for his war of words with a certain group (we all know who, don’t we?) The subliminals came in bunches:
I blacked out on a whole crew by myself. I don’t belong on no list? And I’m talking ’bout everybody, I blacked out on peoples’ favorites! I had MCs denouncing their fan base, coming back with records talking ’bout, “Well as long as my chicks love me.”
Yughhh! Pusha gave credit where it was due, though. During a rant about the order of the list (Kanye should have ranked higher; Future absolutely deserved his nod), he listed Drake as his third Hottest MC. We respect that.
