Falling Notes: The 2013 First Quarter - Rap

Int the original post for Hip Hop and Rap there were three entries which passed muster to be eligible for the 4th Platinum Vinyl Awards. There are always more releases than are eligible, of course, but, when additional entries are discovered, things get a little complicated. In this case the entry list suddenly doubled, and two Perfect 5's joined the ranks. There isn't much cause for concern here, not yet. Not like, say, Alternative. Check out Confessions of the Candyman for more information. I still don't know what to do if the 5's fill the ranks of a genre. Expand or Shrink to fit. I guess whatever will cause the least griping.

Hip Hop & Rap

  • Brinson - No Other Heroes
  • Canon - Loose Canon EP, Volume 1
  • Coffee Jones of Grits - Fresh Brew
  • Japhia Life - Westside Pharmacy
  • Je'kob - Hope
  • Thi'sl - Free From The Trap
Brinson and Thi'sl made a perfect rating. They were pretty impressive. A few other notes on this redesigned quarter. Adult Contemporary, Pop and Metal were combined into one post and Gospel and Folk Music another. Alternative, Modern Worship and Rock will have their original posts readjusted. And still, I have to redo the second quarter and post the third. Maybe I can get it all done before the Fourth Quarter ends. Until next time, I am Awaiting Your Reply.
