Thread: XXL's Top 30 Independent Artists in the Game

    XXL's Top 30 Independent Artists in the Game

    Everyone go here and vote for Tech, and thankfully he is already winning this poll by a good margin



    "<span>As we take today to celebrate our nation's day of independence, it's only right that we also pay tribute to Hip-Hop's crop of independent emcees. Sans the support and deep pockets of a major, these artists have managed to thrive, both as mainstream acts and those with niche followings. Whether it's from touring, selling merchandise, or moving units, succeeding in the independent grind is no easy feat. So enjoy your 4th of July and join us as we tip our hats to the Top 30 Independent Artists in the Game. - XXL Staff"

    Don't vote Tech. Vote other independents who deserve to have more than Miller OF, Lil B or Gambino. Vote Immortal Tech, Brother Ali, Jean Grae, Doom, s P, etc

    I would have voted Immortal Tech if I knew the results ahead of time. But I figured the Mac Miller cock riders would have made it neck and neck, so I voted Tech N9ne to help him out, then saw he was miles ahead -_-

    It says "Top 30 Independant Artists". My understand is that it's someone who's made a difference to the independant grind, someone who's achieved something that's very difficult for an indie artist. Surely it has to be Tech N9ne? Stats don't lie after all.

    MURS, Doom, Danny Brown, Childish Gambino, OF, El-P, Raekwon, Atmosphere, and Immortal Technique all deserve a top ten spot, like 'em or not.
