Myself and some peeps were asked by MTV Base to talk about the top 10 MCs of 2010. Now, whether you define that by commercial or technical success, who knows, but Ghetts was NOT too happy to not be included.
I'm not too happy that he didn't go in on us more. I was expecting at least one suck ya mama....
Ghetts, you're an amazing MC, it's why I've written about you countless times. But the people on the list are, for the most part (I tried to argue Chipmunk up higher and also Kano), deserved.
It's all just opinion innit. In the full length footage, Wretch was given the nod for smashing it in 2011, as were the Sways', Ghetts, Griminal etc who had a relatively quiet year in comparison to the 10 mentioned. For me, it's an accumulation of cultural impact, skill and commercial success, that's the way I approached this list. It ain't science though, is it?
My main beef with this list was that there wasn't one single female on it. Again, I think that's fair enough. There's some amazing girls out there, but none that had the impact in 2010 that those dudes did. Looking forward to seeing Lioness, Roxxx, Leshurr, Bratt, A Dot, Blue and so on, change that in 2011.
