Rozay secures the first spot on the MTV list after beating Drake, Kanye West, Nicki Minaj, Lil Wayne and Jay-Z among other hottest MCs in the game.

Rick Ross was thrilled that he's named MTV's Hottest MC. The Maybach Music rapper said, "Man, it really means a lot to me, of course, but it's an honor." He added, "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."

Rozay beats the likes of Kanye West, Lil Wayne and Jay-Z. MTV noted that though the rapper didn't have a new album coming out last year, he was all over the place with his songs. "Rick Ross makes raw records, he makes street records. When he gets on a verse, his beat selection is impeccable," MTV Jams' Tuma Basa said.

The rhymer was also praised for making a comeback after his health scares. " 'God Forgives, I Don't' was slated to come out in 2011, and he had the two seizures, and we thought it was going to make him fall back completely - but he came back and hit us with 'Rich Forever'," MTV News senior hip-hop writer Rob Markman stated.

Drake sit at No. 2. He's mainly credited for his successful effort in proving that he's not just one hit wonder by releasing a record-breaking album "Take Care". MTV News producer/writer Steven Roberts gushed, "A lot of times artists are faced with a sophomore slump. I think Drake surpassed it and probably had one of the best hip-hop albums of the year."

Nicki Minaj occupied the fourth place. Though she didn't release an album in 2011, the Young Money first lady dominated the charts. Her pop-induced single "Super Bass" became one of Taylor Swift and Selena Gomez's favorite songs last year. She opened for Britney Spears' tour and scored a Grammy performance at its 2012 celebration.

Kanye, Weezy and Jigga, meanwhile, were ranked third, fifth and sixth respectively. The "Heartless" rapper became MTV's Hottest MC in 2008, the "How to Love" crooner took the crown in 2007, and the Roc Nation founder reigned the list in 2009.
