BUZZ via DrJays.com: 2011s A Great Year For Hip-Hop But Is the Best Yet To Come?

Sep 6 2011

Jeff Nelson

“It’s been a phenomenal year for hip-hop so far. Jay-Z and Kanye West delivered the genre’s most decadent release ever, Watch The Throne, a critical and commercial success. Lil Wayne defied naysayers by selling almost a million copies of Tha Carter IV the first week out, proving he’s still the most popular rapper in America. His right-hand man Drake continues to pump out hit singles ‘I’m On One;’ ‘Marvin’s Room’ also, in preparation for his upcoming sophomore release. Tech N9ne once again held it down as the number one independent artist in the game, debuting at number four on the Billboard 200 chart with All 6′s And 7′s, selling over 55,000 copies first week without any commercial radio play.”
