The folks over at MTV News are the tits when it comes to milking arbitrary blog coverage for web hits.
In December, Music Television's news team assembled a March Madness-like bracket system to countdown Britney Spear's 30 best videos. Over 1 million people voted and crowned "I'm A Slave 4 U" the "Best Britney Video of All Time."
"I just got the news that I was voted the game's Hottest MC, and man, it really means a lot to me, of course, but it's an honor," the Miami-bred rapper told MTV. "It's something I've been watching, something I've been a fan of forever. Of course, MTV, they run the game. MMG, we're here. Shout-out to the whole team."
Including Ross, three Maybach Music Group artist broke into the top 10. Philly rapper Meek Mill came in at number seven, while
Chi-city DC MC Wale rounded out the top 10. Mathematically speaking, 30 percent of the hottest MCs in the game are signed to MMG--that's serious Bawse shit.

Additionally, Rozay had to beat out hip-hop heavy hitters like Jay-Z and Kayne West, and some not-so-heavy hitters like "boyfriend material" Drake and "Stupid Hoe" singer Nicki Minaj to earn the crown.
Guess we'll be watching his throne now.
Congratulations, Rick Ross.
