And here it is ladies & gentleman. King Kendrick Lamar takes the top spot on MTV Hottest MCs In The Game list. You can argue about some of the eaelier placements but at least there’s no denying that the young superstar from Compton has the game on lock right now.

His debut album good kid, m.A.A.d City is slowly moving towards Platinum status and his current single ‘Poetic Justice’ is rising up the charts every week. Don’t forget, he has a strong verse on 50 Cent’s latest track ‘We Up’ as well as on young star Emeli Sandé’s new version of her single ‘Next To Me‘ which is surely bound to blow on the American charts. Well deserved!

Released in October on Interscope by Top Dawg Entertainment and Dr. Dre’s Aftermath Entertainment, the LP earned Kendrick a gold plaque before 2012 was over and is making its way toward platinum status with more than 700,000 units sold to date. The Drake-assisted “Poetic Justice” just crept into the Billboard’s top 10 on the Rap charts, while his platinum-selling commentary on alcoholism, “Swimming Pools (Drank),” hit #1 on the Rap Songs chart. “Every time you listen to the album you get something new. I was worried that he was such a great lyricist that that wouldn’t translate to sales and then he blew it out of the water,” said RapFix Blog Editor Nadeska Alexis.
