Here's a little Hottest MCs trivia: Despite being one of rap's most revered artists, Nas has never made a dent on a single "Hottest MCs" list. After 2012's #1, gold-selling Life is Good, however, it was impossible to deny God's Son, who came in at #4 on the Hottest MCs in the Game VIII debate.
Nas vividly captured the angst of New York City's youth on his 1994 classic debut Illmatic, but on last year's Life is Good, he tackled more mature topics like his high-profile divorce to R&B star Kelis and his recent tax trouble — and he did it with banging beats and carefully crafted rhymes.
