So yesterday, MTV Base kicked off it's controversial Top 10 #SAHottestMCs round table with the panelists and we couldn't help but check coast on what the streets were saying. Just to recap, Proverb is chairing the discussion this year, with Amu, Rashid Kay, Slikour, DJ Capital and myself.
Here's what the people had to say.

Just saw the #SAHottestMcs list. I don't know why people are so touched over opinions. A list doesn't validate you, just work and get yours.— #InTheMood (@Priddy_Ugly) December 1, 2016
