As many predicted, Kendrick Lamar was crowned the No. 1 Hottest MC in the Game by MTV's "brain trust" tonight, with 2 Chainz landing right behind him at No. 2. This comes after a week that saw Kanye West, A$AP Rocky, and Drake all respond to their spots on the list. Here is how the final list shapes up.

1. Kendrick Lamar
2. 2 Chainz
3. Rick Ross
4. Nas
5. Drake
6. Big Sean
7. Kanye West
8. A$AP Rocky
9. Future
10. Meek Mill

Shortly after the unveiling, 2 Chainz took to Twitter to thank MTV. Looks like he will be using this as motivation to get to No. 1 next year.
