At # 8 on MTV’s Hottest MC In The Game list is, Waka Flocka Flame. The Queens-born, Atlanta-bred rapper began garnering attention in hip-hop circles after his mixtape Salute Me or Shoot Me Vol. 1 hit the streets of Atlanta in January 2009. It featured his breakout record “O Let’s Do It.” The rowdy club track quickly became a fan favorite, and a year later, after he peppered the streets with more mixtapes and a guest verse on “Bingo,” from Gucci Mane’s 2009 LP, The State vs. Radric Davis, “O Let’s Do It” got an official remix featuring Diddy, Rick Ross and Gucci Mane. On top of all that, the singles “Hard in Da Paint” and “No Hands,” from his debut LP Flockaveli (released October 5), garnered him enough buzz and attention to be voted the #8 Hottest MC in the Game, his first time making the list.
