To be considered a Hottest Breakthrough MC, an artist cannot have released a major-label full-length album. Finalists from 2010's Hottest Breakthrough MC poll will not be eligible for 2011 consideration. Last year Wiz Khalifa emerged as the Hottest Breakthrough MC, beating out runner-up Nicki Minaj, along with ATL group Travis Porter, Diggy Simmons and J. Cole.

This year you can go vote for nominees that include Kendrick Lamar, Meek Mill, A$AP Rocky and Mac Miller. One winner will be chosen and thrown into the debate for our upcoming Hottest MCs list. Cast your vote for the winner and be sure to check in daily for updates and poll results.
