The special show will be followed a special with MTV News crowning the “Hottest MCs in the Game VII” and a “Sucker Free Countdown” that will name five “Sucker Free Certified” rising stars.

The return of “Yo! MTV Raps” brings back one of Hip-Hop’s most-celebrated and influential music shows.

the 30-minute episode, which is being hosted by Sway Calloway, will document the era that helped shape and define Hip-Hop as the dominant music form that is today.

The “Hottest MCs In the Game VII,” also hosted by Sway Calloway, enlists the “Hottest MCs Hip-Hop Braintrust,” that will come together once again, to debate what MCs are making the greatest impact in Hip-Hop today.

Meanwhile, Nicki Minaj became the first female MC to ever earn a spot on the “Hottest” chart last year.

  • They should do one old school video follwed by something new, pn all music radio or tv for any kind of music to close the gap,, so before anyone can open their 13 yeard old mouth and say wayne ,drake, jay cole or someone else is the greatest ever they will have a chance to look at artist that came before and be like damn, so thats where this sound came from or this flow or this and that has been done before, its needed cause people come out they ass before they even heard a bar from a Percee P,G-RAP, CHINO XL, DADDY KANE, MELLE MELL if they did they can say oh thats something that came from him or them, when they act like Kanye makes the best beats they can hear a Marley Marl,J-DILLA, PETE ROCK, LARGE PRO and say thats where his style comes from so then they can say producers like that gave people like MADLIB, KANYE, JUST BLAZE, MANNY FRESH,ALCHAMIST and others learned from just their sounds
