Kanye West called up Hot 97 and talked in a candid and rare interview regarding being slated at No. 7 on a ‘Hottest MCs in the Game’ list. Talking to DJ Enuf on The Angie Martinez Show he commented on a perceived bias from the list creators saying, “What happens with them… I had like the pink polo and the backpack and I’m checkin’ all the boxes of that Tribe Called Quest era and J. Dilla and all that, so they wanna champion it. They don’t like Givenchy Kanye. They don’t like Kanye in a kilt. They don’t like Kanye in a relationship.” Hold up, they don’t like Kanye in a kilt? Because the last time I checked wearing Givenchy, a kilt, or being in a relationship didn’t have a direct correlation on MCing abilities.
But that’s okay. Imma let Kanye talk some more.
Kanye commented on the top spots supporting others by saying, “”Yeah, I just think… him and [Jay-Z] and [Eminem] and certain people are just the greatest rappers of all time.” That’s pretty humble of you, Kanye! But honestly, when was the last time you cared what anyone thought?
