MTV has begun the process of announcing their Hottest MC In The Game list for 2010 and coming in at #10 is Ludacris. With a successful album, feature guest appearances and some successful outside business ventures, Luda snatched the #10 spot beating out such notable artist as Lloyd Banks. Let the water cooler arguments begin.
In March, Ludacris released his seventh album, Battle of the Sexes, and without seeming to try much at all, he made the case for why he should be a candidate for the 2010 Hottest MC in the Game.
Sexes tackles male/female dynamics and brings onboard some high-profile femcees, including Nicki Minaj and Lil’ Kim. The certified-gold record debuted at #1 on the Billboard albums chart and spawned three bona fide hits — “How Low,” “My Chick Bad” and “Sex Room” — that each broke the top 5 on Billboard’s R&B/Hip-Hop songs chart.
We have been waiting for Eve’s new album since the release of “Tambourine”, but drama label has been holding the pitbull in a skirt back from dropping the album. But since her release from the Interscope contract, Eve has been in the studio putting the final touches on her new album Lip Lock which is set to be released through EMI in March 2011 and will feature appearances and production from the likes of MSTRKRFT, Akon, Swizz Beatz, Salaam Remi & the Ruff Ryders.
