The G.O.O.D. rapper spoke to DJ Semtex about the list, and who he thought should have made the list |Pusha T|.
Big Sean appeared to be ok with his placement on the list when initially asked. He said, “It was cool, I feel like people take it way to serious, all these rappers taking ’bout, ‘oh I shoulda been higher.’ I think everybody on that list earned they spot.”
As he continued to discuss the list, and think about G.O.O.D. Music’s output from 2012, it seemed he became less agreeable with his #6 spot. “I feel like G.O.O.D. Music had the hottest rap songs, biggest rap songs of 2012. That was Kanye‘s work, that was my work, that was our work. I dunno, for me and Kanye to be 7 and 6, whatchu think? If you on the hottest rap songs of 2012 and you 7 and 6 what that mean? Is that right?” “It just motivates me, I told myself last year I was gunna be higher on that list, and I was higher this year, and next year I’ma be higher.”
