  7. Royce da 5’9″ – I Gotta Shake This (Internet)
  8. Sunkiss – We Go Back (Internet)

Total: 27

The list of tracks for the vote contains eight tracks (!!) and there won’t be any rnb track in it, I’m sorry. Just to focus on tha real… hip hop. I’m actual curious to know the results so I thank you for wasting your time on this! May God bless you, peace to earth!!

And please don’t cry if your favourite track isn’t nominated (you can always skip simple things in life).

Another small thing, the Vivid track is NOT produced by DJ Premier! The scratches are done by DJ Cazz and seriously, ever saw a Preem track where he didn’t do the cuts?! Plus, you can hear in a sec that isn’t the man. And the RA The MC track “Anything You Liked” is a recycled beat, she jacked it from the “Beats That Collected Dust” LP… Sorry!

House of Repz have shot a video clip for their track “You Gotta Love This”, but where is the video for Royce‘s new single that is recorded months ago…
