· best emcee / lyrics
- Poison Pen
Pen is gonna let everyone know whats up when his album drops, his hooks are insane, and the way he records his
tracks, his concepts for recording are insane, and on top of all that he's got the craziest lines
- Ghostface
everything this guy was on this year was crazy, that Mark Ronson track?!?!?! that's why dude is the greatest right now
- Jay-Z
after "Vol.1" I couldnt get with Jay except for a few tracks or singles here and there, although I always liked alot of tracks on "The Blueprint" I always denied it was that great. However this year you couldnt deny the dude. After I heard "The Bounce", I became a Jay fan again. However I still cant really get with "Vol. 2", "Vol. 3", or "Roc La Familia" like that. So like "Reasonable Doubt", "Vol.1", then "The Blueprint" on. Jay killed it this year, and he destroyed non rap tracks like that Beyonce joint, and the Pharrel track. No one had done an R'n'B
track verse this hot since Biggie.
