My image causes bias: Kanye West

My image causes bias: Kanye West London: Kanye West thinks his relationship with his pregnant girlfriend 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 have been higher if it were based solely on his music skills, reported Contactmusic.

"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," he said.
