The MTV Base Hottest MC's list always causes a stir on social media with viewers and Hip Hop heads not seeing eye to eye. Just like every other year, the show which rates the hottest MC's yearly, caught backlash for ranking rappers in an order fans do not agree with and also always snubbing the hotter ones.

One person fans were hoping to see on the list was Madumane, the greatest transition in the SA music scene ever. Madumane is DJ Maphorisa's "altar ego" and he raps on Amapiano songs.

No rapper can say they saw the list and totally agreed to it and this year is no different. One of the biggest critics is Reason who was lost for words. He wrote, "No comment" and laughed.

Fans want to see Emtee on the list and other rappers like AKA, Cassper Nyovest and Costa Titch to be removed. Basically fans think that the list is a joke. And the fact that there is only woman on the list?!

MTV Base Hottest MCs is an annual list that is judged according to the following criteria: Bars and Lyrics, Impact, Sales, Intangibles (X Factor).

The list goes as follows:

  1. Blxkie
  2. Big Zulu
  3. Nasty C
  4. A-Reece 
  5. 25K
  6. KO & Riky Rick
  7. Costa Titch 
  8. Lucas Raps 
  9. Priddy Ugly
  10. Dee Koala

Here's how Mzansi reacted:

Not mad at the list though is Blxckie who reigned supreme at number 1. He told TshisaLive that his hard work paid off and that it is his first time on the list. “It really feels amazing. It has always been something I was looking forward to. Would watch it every year and be inspired. It’s even crazier that it's my first time being on the list.”

“I won’t lie, I was expecting it. Nobody works harder so it’s only fitting. This just means that I’ve become a target for a lot of other artists that want that position so its just up to me to stay on my toes and make sure nobody catches up.”

Last year taking the crown was Focalistic but also grabbing the spotlight was Sho Madjozi who by the way is not a rapper. She was deemed a far better rapper than  K.O, Ricky Rick, Nadia Nakai and Shane Eagle.

When Busiswa entered the charts she said women should not pay any attention to this, "Artists’ Managers making it personal. The game is the game. We been knew they do this to get the people riled up. Let’s do impactful sh*t together rather than shade each other over lists & awards. ESPECIALLY women. We’re all we’ve got. It’s all entertainment to them. Bayahleka."
