Music Chart - March 19, 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, Soul Khan's "Wellstone" and Rittz' "Bloody Murdah," respectively drop off the chart entirely and fall to fifth. Debuting in their place are Mac Miller's Raekwon/Posdnuos-assisted "Of the Soul (Remix)" and Tayyib Ali's DJBooth-premiered "Dear Lord."

*All in all, 16 new features earn spots in the chart, including additional Booth-exclusive premieres from Capital STEEZ ("Capital STEEZ," in eighth) and Knowledge Medina ("Family Matters," in 18th).
