Each year, MTV’s hip-hop experts rank the “Hottest MCs in the Game — it’s kind of a big deal, and, in our opinion, an honor just to make the list. But this year, A$AP Rocky got bent out of shape, to say the least, about his #8 placement. The “F**kin’ Problems” rapper felt he got shafted and deserved a higher ranking, and since we’re all about fairness, we’re giving him a shot at vindication. A$AP is a 2013 mtvU Woodie of the Year award nominee, which means you get to make the call on whether or not he’s worthy of the title. Allow him to plead his case, dear voters:
“I never won an award a day in my life, except, like, a basketball trophy one time,” he says in the mtvU Woodie Awards preview clip below, not so-subtly fishing for sympathy votes. “So if I win this Woodie award, I will be so gracious and thankful. I need to feel loved right now.” Hmm, something tells us he’s got plenty of lovin’ in his life…
When Mac Miller won the award last year, he definitely felt the crowd’s appreciation, even rewarding his fans with a phenomenal performance, so hopefully, A$AP will follow suit with a big ol’ victory dance if he takes the crown. Check out the stiff competition, vote for your favorite and don’t miss the 2013 mtvU Woodie Awards, Sunday, March 17 at 8/7c on MTV & mtvU, featuring performances from Zedd,Macklemore & Ryan Lewis and Twenty One Pilots
