The moment we've all been patiently waiting for has finally arrived.
MTV Base announced their Hottest South African MC for 2015!
This year, the prestigious crown went to Cassper Nyovest. We saw this coming - the rapper has achieved a lot this year and made history after becoming the first South African musician to have a soldout show at the Ticket Pro Dome (20 000 people).
The second part of the show aired on Friday afternoon and judging by the reaction on social media, some people are not impressed. The roundable discussion had a panel of some of the entertainment industry's most respected personalities including Tbo Touch and Loyiso Gola.
The debate was nothing short of drama, but a winner had to be chosen.
The top five Hottest MCs are:
4. Riky Rick
Here's how some people reacted on Twitter:

Okay okay... I'm patiently waiting for the diss tracks now #BaseHottestMC— ➖NHLANHLA➖ (@Nhlero_ria) November 27, 2015
Forget Filling Up The Dome and endorsements, AKA is still the better rapper lyrically, and that needs to be known #BaseHottestMC— • Lenny (@ObaManyathela13) November 27, 2015
#BaseHottestMC shows that rappers need to up their BUSINESS INTELLECT. Brand yourself well, get those business deals, make social noise!— ________ (@_MaZulu) November 27, 2015
But after all they all said the Super Mega is better lyrically. Otherwise we don't care about your list. ✌✌ #BaseHottestMC— Antoinette Mpumelelo (@AntoinetteMpume) November 27, 2015
The hottest mc is weak lyrically and in style. What makes a rapper actually? Isn't style and lyrics? Not making followers #BaseHottestMC— ♠️LAGER♠️ (@LebzaDaCol) November 27, 2015
Not to take away anything from AKA, but Cass did more for SA Hip Hop according to the #BaseHottestMC criteria. Congrats Mr. Nyovest.— Clandestine Nash (@Im_So_Arcane) November 27, 2015
The bottom five rappers on the list were revealed on Thursday.
