Music Chart - January 30, 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.

*Vinnie Paz' "Death Messiah 2012" and Yonas' Booth-premiered "Midnight City" debut on top this week, knocking Kid Ink's "Time of Your Life" and Hi-Rez' "X-Problems," respectively, to third and off the chart entirely.

*All in all, 17 new features earn spots in this week's lineup, including additional world premieres from The Cranberry Show ("Traffic Lights," in seventh) and Knowledge Medina ("Can You Let Me Be," in ninth).

*Returning this week along with Kid Ink's cut, ScHoolboy Q's "Hands on the Wheel" and Nick Pratt's "Mac & Me." hang on at sixth and 11th.
