Rap Music Chart - December 5, 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 Formula that takes into account member ratings and reviews as well as features’ overall popularity.

The former chart-topper, Busta Rhymes' "Why Stop Now," ascends to our Top Hip Hop and R&B lineup this go-round, and the runner-up, Yelawolf's "Throw It Up," climbs to take its place. Formerly fifth, T.I.'s "Pyro" makes the jump to second. Debuting this week, B.o.B's "Boom Bap," Young Jeezy's "Talk to Me," Lil Twist's "Turnt Up," Tinie Tempah's "Like It or Love It," 50 Cent's "Stop Crying," The Roots' "One Time" and Black Star's "You Already Knew" claim third, fourth, ninth, 10th, 11th, 15th and 16th. Kendrick Lamar's "Rigamortis," Yelawolf's "Hard White (Remix)" and Nelly's "Country Azz N*gga" drop from the Top Picks to claim fifth, seventh and 17th. Edged out by the newcomers, T.I.'s "I'm Flexin'," WZRD's "Brake," Drake's "Free Spirit," Ludacris' "Mothaf**cka Can You Buy That," Fat Joe's "Another Round," Mobb Deep's "Get It Forever" and Common's "Sweet" make their exit from the running.
