(Wale is the #10 Hottest MC in the Game)

MTV’s “Hottest MCs in the Game VII" kicked off on Monday (February 13) with MMG rapper Wale sliding in at the #10 spot on the list. MTV News’ Hip-Hop Brain Trust have already come up with a final list of the year’s Hottest MCs, but several other experts from the hip-hop community weighed in on the rappers as well. Georgette Cline, editor of AOL Music’s hip-hop blog shared her opinions on Wale’s big comeback year. “He proved that he was resilient,” Georgette says of Wale’s return with Ambition this year.

“The title “Ambition” itself…he had something to prove and he really proved to the people that he was here and he was able to make hit records like “Lotus Flower Bomb,” she says. Check out Georgette's full explanation above. Tomorrow we’ll reveal the #9 Hottest MC on, Rapfix.MTV.Com and Hottest.MTV.Com.
