After being crowned MTV's hottest MC in the game, Kendrick Lamar blesses a small RapFix audience with a live rendition of "Poetic Justice," sans Drake. Though it is not known what kinds of electronics the young T.D.E. representative used to bribe Sway, this video reminds us all why he and the music he gave us this year deserved the top spot.

All eyes await the rapper's follow-up, for which he says he's taking his time. Let's see if Top Dawg Entertainment will continue to live up to its name in MTV's eyes next year. Until then, the belt resides in Compton.
