Music Chart - May 2, 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.

Last week's top three, Nikki Lynette's "Pick a Side," Yonas' "Radio Flow" and Nique's "NO!", fall to, respectively, sixth, 19th and fifth. Debuting in their place are StartYourOwnRebellion's "Let It Go," Tech N9ne's "I Love Music" and The Freshmen's "The Fonz" (a Booth-exclusive world premiere!). All in all, 14 new joints make their debut on this week's Independent Chart, among them additional world premieres by Beyond Belief ("Got the Streets Talkin'," in seventh) and DJ Pain1 ("Now You Know," in 18th).
