two fail lists, i can't even...

MTV and BET both recently released rap-related lists--the former releasing a "Hottest MCs of 2010" list and the latter releasing a "Top 10 Rappers of the 21st Century" list. Both lists fail:

MTVs Hottest MCs of 2010:
1. Eminem
2. Jay-Z (HE HASN'T DONE ISH IN 2010, SORRY)
3. Kanye West
4. Drake (NEEDS TO BE HIGHER)
5. Rick Ross (LOL)
6. Nicki Minaj
7. Lil' Wayne (EHH)
8. Waka Flocka (WHO IS THIS?? WHAT SINGLES HAS HE HAD ON THE RADIO)
9. B.o.B. (FINE.)
10. Ludacris (LOL)

I don't understand MTV's logic behind the inclusion of Waka Flocka. I ~keep up~ with rappers sorta and I don't even know one song by this fool. I don't get why people continue to kiss Jay-Z's butt by wrongly including him in lists, because the dude hasn't done anything in 2010 really. Not enough to warrant him a #2 spot on here anyway. Sure, Rick Ross is a ghetto hero but idk why he's #5 on this list. Are there not enough exciting rappers to include in a list like this? I don't get it. Rap music, step your game up!!

BET Top 10 Rappers of the 21st Century
1. Eminem (......................... REALLY?)
2. Lil' Wayne
3. Kanye West (HE'S MY #1, BUT OK)
4. 50 Cent
5. T.I.
6. Ludacris
7. Drake (WHO IS DRAKE? THIS LIST IS NOW INVALID)
8. Young Jeezy (HELL NO)
9. Jadakiss (SORRY JADA, BUT NOT ENOUGH COMMERCIAL IMPACT TO MAKE THIS LIST)
10. Rick Ross (LIST IS EVEN MORE INVALID)

I can't with this list. Firstly, what did they go by in terms of ranking these artists? Commercial appeal? If so, Nelly needs to be on here. Hip-hop consciousness? If so, Lupe Fiasco needs to be on this ish. Why Drake, who released his first album this year, is on this list (which ranks artists who came out from 1999 and on) is beyond me really. Young Jeezy & Rick Ross haven't done ish. And Jadakiss is too ~underground, in my opinion, to be on here.
