6. Officially reclaiming our crown as the city with the most attractive residents.
Excuse our beauty. Or don't, you're ugly anyway.5. Rick Ross
When your city is home to two chart-topping "rappers" who now sacrifice quality, critical appeal and credibility for maximum commercial appeal, your city's rap scene may seem like it's becoming some sort of rave rap joke. Thankfully there's the Boss. The guy not only released a posse album, and official studio album, but two well received mix tapes (one of which was called The Black Bar Mitzvah
and no one even blinked). He's racking up spots on best of lists, and few rappers in the game can touch him. He might even get an Oscar nomination for his song in Django Unchained
. What did you do this year?
