Winners & Losers (2011 Tubby Blog Rap Awards)

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times... A good year for R&B (Aubrey, The Weeknd, Frank Ocean) a somewhat bad year for (fat) rappers (Heavy D, Rick Ross, Erick Sermon) as well as funny comedians (Patrice O'Neal). Someone else besides Patrice & Heavy D died too right? Oh yeah, Waka Flocka's buddy, MC Dunkin Donuts or whatever (did he really get merked over some fuckin Jolly Ranchers, yo!?!)

Buuuuut, even with some tragedies & setbacks in 2011, the show continued to go on (as it always does and always will) and what's a show without the theme music? Music is the soundtrack to our lives and in 2011, this is what/who I was playing, and who/what I was hating. We're all entitled to an opinion, luckily, over here, mine's the only one that matters! Let's begin...

4. Sexy Delicious - Marsh B.

2011 Favorite Local Artists (myself excluded, of course)

Best Instrumentals of 2011

So, that's my list, hate it or love it, faggots. Hopefully 2012 will bring even more awesome (and less retarded skinny pant homo thug "swag" "based") music for us to listen to, dissect and debate about. Oh yeah, and rest in peace to the realest poet of our generation, dat n***a, Andy Rooney!

Tubby, out!
