Kanye West - Kanye West: My image causes bias

Kanye West thinks his relationship with Kim Kardashian biases people against his rapping.

The 'Stronger' hitmaker - who is expecting his first child with the reality TV star - is unhappy MTV's Hip-Hop Brain Trust voted him the seventh Hottest MC in the Game and he feels his ranking would've been higher if it were based solely on his music skills.

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, the 'All of the Lights' star 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.

A$AP Rocky made eighth place, one above Future, and the list was rounded out by Meek Mill.

The top five will be revealed tomorrow (07.03.13).
