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.
The former top two, Joe Budden's "Tipsy" and Macklemore's "Wings," fall to third and seventh this week, clearing the way for a pair of newcomers, Shane Eli's Booth-premiered "Bo Jackson and Kidz in the Hall single "Pledge Allegiance to the Grind." Other DJBooth.net exclusives debuting in our Independent lineup include Dao Jones' "King's Ransom (#11) and Brown Bag All-Stars member Koncept's freestyle series contribution, "Things You Do" (#14).
