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.
With week's front-runner, k-os "Faith" currently enjoying a spot in our Top Hip Hop and R&B Chart, a trifecta of new features come out on top; J. Cole, Kid CuDi and Kanye West take #1, #2 and #3 with "Blow Up," "Mr. Rager" and "Power (Remix)," pushing last week's runner-up, Nelly's "Tippin' in the Club" to fourth. Also making their debut in our Rap Chart this week are Twista's "The Heat," Pill's "Blow Up" and Raekwon's "Travel Places" claim #5, #13 and #15. Down from our Top Picks, Eminem and Birdman drop to #7 and #10 with "Love the Way You Lie" and "Loyalty."
