Mtv Base’s Hottest MC’s makes a comeback !

MTV Base’s Hottest MC’s is returning for another annual special. Each year, MTV Base rates the hottest hitmakers in the rap game from number 10 to number 1. The host serves as a mediator for the panel of six hip-hop industry judges whose criteria for the Hottest MCs list includes the MC’s impact, bars and lyrics, sales, buzz, and x-factor.

This year, Tshego Koke, a member of the Paramount Culture Squad, will host the Hottest MC’s for the second year in a row. He is not a novice to the hip-hop community; over the years, his involvement in music and fashion has had a huge impact on the South African hip-hop scene. In order to find the Hottest MC for 2022, Tshego will be joined by other hip-hop heads with extensive knowledge and experience in the field.

Over the years, the list has garnered recognition and has sparked passionate discussion among fans of hip-hop about who should hold the coveted top slot. MTV Base promises that this year’s countdown will be just as exciting as last year’s.

“Hip-hop embraces authenticity and is a way of life for many people. The impact of hip-hop culture can be seen in so many facets of modern life, from fashion and dance to language and politics.

Our local artists have made the country and indeed the continent proud and they have upheld the significance of preserving the South African sound. Hip-hop today sounds more like home than ever before,” says Monde Twala, Senior Vice President and General Manager at Paramount Africa.
