I’m starting to wonder if these rappers are going to start hating me after these debates. Oh well, somebody has to keep it real. Last year’s #2 behind only Macklemore, J. Pinder entered the list at #6, but the panel decided that his move to LA was detrimental to his qualitative Northwest Freshness.. Much to Sermon‘s disdain.

Meanwhile, “The ‘Prince’ of the Northwest,” Sol‘s travels made him even more enigmatic, and his climb continued as we placed him in the #6 spot. Just how far will Sol climb? Can his run be stopped by anyone? Find out next week, as we resume with the #5 spot on Monday.
