Rap Music Chart - May 9, 2011


Welcome to the Booth's Top Rap 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.

Both of last week's front-runners, Eminem & Royce's "Fast Lane" and Curren$y's "#JetsGo," graduate to our Top Hip Hop and R&B Chart this week; replacing them on top are Wiz Khalifa's "The Race" (formerly fourth) and Lupe Fiasco's "Out of My Head" (a former Top Pick). Also down from our Top Hip Hop and R&B lineup are Royce Da 5'9"'s "Writer's Block," (in third) and YG's "Hell Yeah" (in fifth). Making their debut in our Rap lineup are J. Cole's "Disgusting" (in fourth), Freddie Gibbs & Young Jeezy's "Stripes (Run D MC)" (in eighth) Lupe Fiasco's "What U Want (Remix)" (in 11th) and T-Pain's "You Copying Me" (in 12th). Kendrick Lamar's "HiiPoWer," the Beastie Boys' "Don't P{lay No Game That I Can't Win," Wiz Khalifa's "On My Level" and Mobb Deep's "Dog Sh*t."
