Worthy > XXL – The Big 10 Honourees
“The industry’s current climate may be crippling major labels, but it has somewhat leveled the playing field for independent artists.
Whether creating an internet buzz via relentless track leaks or going spin for spin and countdown for countdown with chart toppers, today’s crop of indie MCs is giving mainstream acts a run for their money, literally. On Independence Day, XXLMag.com salutes The Big 10: the game’s most consistent, skilled, promising, entrepreneurial and talked about independent MCs.”
While all worthy, I have to give my standing ovation to The Cool Kids, U-N-I and Mickey Factz who make up 3 out of the 10 spots filled. The more recognition of hard work and tremendous talent the better. Note that I just used the word tremendous. Lol.
