Rap Music Chart - April 18, 2011


Welcome to the Booth's Top Rap Chart! As always, your feedback has determined which songs made the cut. Each chart’s lineup is calculated using a special DJBooth.net Formula that takes into account member ratings and reviews as well as features’ overall popularity.

Royce Da 5'9"'s "Writer's Block," debuts on top this week, knocking Wiz Khalifa's "GangBang" to runner-up. Last week's second-place pick, Mobb Deep's "Dog Sh*t," moves up to earn a place among our Top Hip Hop and R&B Chart.
