Rap Music Chart - January 23, 2012


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.

Jay-Z's "Glory" and B.o.B's "Strange Clouds (Remix)" make the jump to our Top Hip Hop and R&B Chart, clearing the way for J. Cole's "Nobody's Perfect" (formerly #15) and Tyga's "Faded" (a new feature) to claim the top two. Debuting along with Tyga's cut, Yo Gotti's "Go Girl," B.o.B's "How Bout Dat," 50 Cent's "I Just Wanna" and E-40's "Function" enter the lineup in 10th, 14th, 16th and 18th. Down from our Top Picks, T.I.'s "F*ck Da City Up," Roscoe Dash's "Sidity" and Lupe Fiasco's "American Terrorist III" land in fourth, sixth and 11th. Edged out by the newcomers, TIP's "Pyro," Young Jeezy's "Talk to Me," Common's "The Believer" and Nicki Minaj's "Roman in Moscow" maske their exit from the Booth charts.
