Kanye West thinks his relationship with Kim Kardashian biases people against his career and it’s really giving him a panic attack.
Kanye, 36, who is expecting his first child with the famous reality TV star in summer, is unhappy MTV’s Hip-Hop Brain Trust voted him the seventh Hottest MC in the Game.
He feels his ranking would’ve been higher if it were based solely on his music skills, and not whom he is dating or what he is doing outside the industry.
Speaking to US radio station Hot 97′s DJ Enuff, he said:
‘Yeah, number seven bothers me. To me, I feel like in order for them to put me as number seven, they had to bring up things they didn’t like.
They didn’t like the ‘Cruel Summer’ album, and I’m like, ‘That’s just [a] compilation.
I don’t know, it’s definitely not based on a body of work. It possibly could just be like overall rap-MC-swag.
What happens is, with these types of things… They don’t like ‘Givenchy Kanye,’ they don’t like Kanye in a kilt, they don’t like Kanye in a relationship.”
However, Kanye said he doesn’t believe he deserved top spot on the list, as he still thinks the world’s best rapper is Lil Wayne.
He added: “Yeah, I just think him and [Jay-Z] and [Eminem] and certain people are just the greatest rappers of all time.”
So far, MTV have revealed the fifth to tenth placed artists on the list, with Drake in fifth followed by Big Sean then Kanye.
