Now here’s a ranking I straight up disagree with. A$AP’s ‘F**ckin Problems’ hit top 10 on Billboard Hot 100 and his album Long.Live.A$AP was number 1 on Billboard 200 so I definitely think he deserved a higher spot. But MTV journalists didn’t feel that way.
MTV story producer Steven Roberts chimed in to “reluctantly agree with” Jean-Baptiste, saying, “If you do listen to that album, other people outshine him,” citing “Problems” and “1 Train” as examples. This opposition ultimately set the stage for the previously eighth-ranked Big Sean to take the #7 spot, with Rocky holding strong at #8, ahead of Meek Mill (10) and Future (9).
