Music Chart - January 31, 2011


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.

Formerly in the top two, Freeway's Mac Miller-assisted "P.A." and Saigon's "Clap" fall to third and seventh. Clinton Sparks' "My Favorite DJ," the only other returning selection, drops from ninth to 19th. Joe Budden's "Tipsy" and Macklemore's "Wings," claim first and second, making their debut along with Booth-premiered joints by The Electric ("The Overload," in fourth) and Dao Jones ("Ayo," in eighth), along with exclusive freestyles by The Boy Illinois ("I'm Illi," in 11th) and Wrekonize ("Declaration," in 13th).
