No question here….although there is definitely huge debate as far as the other 9 (or 10, rather….and quite frankly, doesn’t matter who you are and how your list looks, it’ll probably be controversial regardless, in my opinion). You can check out the full list below and the full breakdown on each artist that made the list at KYS’s site. Shout out to Pharoh Martin.

1. Wale – 2. Phil Ade – 3. Diamond District (Oddisee, X.O. & YU) – 4. Tabi Bonney – 5. Kingpen Slim – 6. Bear Witnez – 7. Garvey The Chosen One – 8. Boobe – 9. D.C. Don Juan – 10. TIE: Fat Trel & RAtheMC
