I’ll bet its no longer news that the MTV Hottest MCs 2009 List is out with Jayz emerging as the hottest MC numero uno. The greatest upset of the top ten list came from DRAKE the canadian actor turned MC, who locked the No. 3 spot ahead of Kanye and 50cents. nuf said check out the list below::

#10.Raekwon

As in 2007 and 2008 the list, determined by the MTV News Hip-Hop Brain Trust, is based on an MC’s achievements right now, rather than an entire career.The Criteria is based on a combination of rhyme skill, flow and how those things are implemented musically as the main factors. The Brain Trust also considered buzz, impact, commercial success — sales, airplay, business ventures, Web presence, endorsements and helping to spawn other artists’ careers — and the intangible, impact: Can an artist not only contribute to the rap game but influence cultural shifts? Are they trendsetters? All of these factors — and the results of our audience poll, which closed last week and got a vote at the Round Table during the Brain Trust’s debate — contributed to deciding who is the Hottest MC in the Game.
