Martha Stewart Picks Eminem as Hottest MC
Eminem has many fans, but he recently acquired an unlikely admirer. In a recent interview with MTV, Martha Stewart weighed in on the Hottest MCs list and cited Eminem as her top pick. “I don’t know if he’s in the game, but I think so ’cause he has an album that’s, like, close to the top of the charts. It’s always been Eminem,” Stewart said. “[He's] huge, huge, huge.” The domestic diva was spot on with her prediction as the Detriot MC to home to top honor.
Stewart — who’s chopped it up with Ludacris, Big Boi and Snoop Dogg on her daytime talk show — went on to admit that she’s also a big fan of Kanye West, who came in at No. 3 on MTV’s list. According to Stewart, she met the producer/rapper at New York restaurant Nobu and went on to give ‘Ye a tour of her offices. “He wants to brand himself,” Stewart said. “You’ll be seeing Kanye West everything. He’s great.”
MTV began rolling out its Hottest MCs list on Oct. 18 with Ludacris in the No. 10 spot, B.o.B at No. 9 and Waka Flocka at No. 8. Lil Wayne landed in the No. 7 spot while his Young Money diva Nicki Minaj trumped him and snagged the No. 6 slot. Rick Ross sits a No. 5, Drake at No. 4, while West, Jay-Z and Eminem took the top spots, respectively.
