What’s it take for Kanye West to participate in an interview these days? Apparently, a snubbing on MTV’s annual list of the “Hottest MCs in the Game”. For those who haven’t paid attention to this year’s results, Kanye placed at #7 behind Big Sean and Drake (#1 – 5 will be revealed in the coming days.)

Kanye called into Hot 97′s DJ Enuff  to discuss his placement. The brief conversation began with Kanye admitting that “Lil Wayne is the #1 rapper in the world… Him and Jay and Em are the greatest rappers of all time.”

However, when it came to his spot on the list, Kanye said, “I feel like in order for them to put me at #7, they had to bring up things they didn’t like — like the Cruel Summer album.” He then suggested that his critics prefer the backpack-and-polo-era Kanye over his current career choices. “They don’t like Givenchy Kanye, they don’t like Kanye in a kilt, they don’t like Kanye in a relationship.”

Kanye also boasted about the bar in “Cold” in which he raps about Kim Kardashian’s ex-husband, Kris Humphries. “I said, ‘Lucky I ain’t have Jay drop him from the team’ — ain’t no bar of the entire past 12 months hotter than that one bar.”

He jokingly ended the conversation by reminding MTV’s Sway that he gave him his first TV before hanging up the phone.

At the very least, it’s nice to hear Kanye in a good mood.
