Music Chart - January 23, 2012


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 Formula that takes into account member ratings and reviews as well as features’ overall popularity.

Last week's front-runners, ¡MAYDAY!'s "Internal Wars" and Skillz' "2011 Rap Up" drop to, respectively, fourth and 14. Debuting in their place are Kid Ink's "Time of Your Life" and Hi-Rez' "X-Problems." All in all, 14 new features earn spots in the lineup, among them Booth-exclusive world premieres from Young Duece ("The Growth," in fifth), Phresh James ("The Wave," in seventh) and Knowledge Medina ("You Don't Really Care," in 12th).
