With The Game being the last beat of 2012 it’s again that time of the year my friends. We didn’t get NYGz, MC Eiht nor KRS-One, Pete Rock and Get Used To It DVD. But we did had a productive year. I wonder if I can out due last year vote succes. Be aware, judge strictly on the beats, not the rhymes. It’s the beat that matters in this poll… And I’m sorry, but I had to cut some tracks away because otherwise the list will be to big. Who will run away with the award?? This one could be hard to choose from!!

2011 winner: You by Evidence (22%)
2010 winner: Première Salve by Soulkast (20%)
2009 winner: Rap Addiction by Blaq Poet (17%)
2008 winner: Say Goodnight by Reks (30%)

In 2008 we had 359 votes, in 2009 we had 950 votes, in 2010 we had 3 118 votes, in 2011 we had 4,098 votes. LETS BEAT THAT RECORD MY FAMILY!! WHO WILL WIN THE AWARD??? VOTE VOTE VOTE!!

Thank you for your time and support over the years! -gim
