MTV tries to predict which MCs will blow up next (a.k.a. “Have you heard Wale?”) (Video)



    MTV essentially took half of XXL’s Freshmen 10 to make the segment above, where they try to pick five MCs that are going to be huge. The guy who introduces the segment  says MTV was the first to bring you Jay-Z, Kanye, etc., and now they’re the first to bring you Wale, Asher Roth, Kid Cudi, Charles Hamilton, and B.O.B. Of course, they make no mention of the fact that if you’ve been anywhere near a site that covers hip-hop (say this one) in the last 12 months, you’ve heard of all of these artists. [NahRight]
