From unranked to the top of the charts.
As we enter March and the college basketball season is coming to a climax, the final polls ranking the best in the country are going to come into play when seeding teams in the NCAA Tournament. These rankings are not the only polls in the social eye this month as MTV has released it’s Hottest MC’s In the Game list for 2013. Kendrick Lamar was unranked in the 2012 list but in 2013, thanks to hot features and an his acclaimed album, K. Dot is now sitting atop the list.
Kendrick’s ranking is primarily based on good kid, m.A.A.d city, his #1 album, and joints like today’s Song of the Day “m.A.A.d. City”. Not only does K. Dot combine two beats seamlessly on the joint next to MC Eiht, but the Compton rapper also gives an in-depth look into his upbringing in the gang run city.
