Music Chart - April 9, 2012


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

*Last week's front-runners, Mac Miller (with "The Question") and Act Proof (with "All the Way"), respectively graduate to our Top Hip Hop and R&B Chart and drop out of the running entirely. Taking their place on top are two new features, Killer Mike's "Don't Die" and Childish Gambino's "Eat Your Vegetables."

*Just three of last week's picks remain: Reef the Lost Cauze drops from third to 20th with "The Prey," Mac Miller's "Loud" tumbles from fifth to 11th and Hoodie Allen''s "No Interruption" climbs from seventh to fourth.

*All in all, 17 new features earn spots on the chart, including DJBooth-premiered joints by Cookin' Soul ("AK 47," in seventh) and Young Riot ("Do It Again," in 14th).
