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.net Formula that takes into account member ratings and reviews as well as features’ overall popularity.
Yonas' new, Booth-premiered single, "I Could," debuts on top this week, and Skyzoo/!llmind's "Speakers on Blast (Remix)" moves up from eighth to claim second place. Last week's top two, King Mez' "Hoppin' Over Fences" and Yonas" Nobody Else," drop to (respectively) seventh and sixth. All in all, 13 of the past week's features debut on our Independent Chart, including a Booth-exclusive freestyle (Kooley High's "POGO") and John Public's Booth-premiered single, "Untitled Life."
