As you know, it’s that time of the year once again for MTV’s Hottest MC List, and one of the hottest rappers, J.Cole, over past year has been snubbed.

Now J.Cole addresses being left off the Hottest MC’s list.

“Yeah, I saw the list. I don’t know. A list is a list, you know what I’m saying? Whether I’m on it or not. If I was on that list, they’d find another person to be up in arms about. I’m very happy at the fact that my fans and people who aren’t really big fans but they just know… I’m happy to see that reaction from them. But if it wasn’t me, it’d be somebody else. Like, how did you forget emcee such and such? That’s just the nature of the list. So imagine when the top 10 is really announced, I’m sure there’ll be drama then. But do I deserve it? Yeah, of course. Even when I didn’t deserve to be on it, I thought I deserved to be on it a couple of years ago, when I really wasn’t as hot as I might be right now. But it’s all good.”
