I never in a million, trillion years thought I’d be using “pobrecita” as a modifier for “Kanye West“, but… here I am muttering them in the same breath because Yeezy landed at #7 on MTV’s “Hottest MCs in the Game VIII,” and he had *achem* a lot to say about it. In short, it quote-unquote “bothers [him].” ACK! He broke his media silence on Tuesday night, opening up to Hot 97’s DJ Enuff about the list and all his thoughts and feelings around it. The chat even caused a little soundbite about Ye giving Sway Calloway his first TV to trend all over the Twitterverse (go to here for the full story from Sway himself).

While the conversation started with Kanye supporting his boy Big Sean’s high placement on the list, Yeezy soon launched into theorizing about the basis of his #7 spot saying, “I don’t know, it’s definitely not based on a body of work. It possibly could just be like overall rap-MC-swag, you know what I’m saying?” He elaborated further adding that it might have something to do with his style of late, “They don’t like ’Givenchy Kanye,’ they don’t like Kanye in a kilt, they don’t like Kanye in a relationship.”

Well, y’all. I know you weren’t asking, but Kanye is hands down one of my absolute favorite MCs of all time. ALSO, if anyone in this world loves “Givenchy Kanye,” it’s us, the humble keyboard-tappers here at MTV Style (Exhibits A, B, C, and, like, infinity more letters that haven’t even been invented yet). Double also, we know for sure we’re not alone on this one. Thus, we’ve put together a pick-me-up reminder for Ye with pictures of people showing love for The Great and Powerful “Givenchy Kanye.” We love you, Yeezy! Don’t ever change!
