Hip-Hop Artist of the Year – The Boombox Fan Choice Awards

Fan Choice Awards

Another year, another poll. It’s time for you to vote for Hip-Hop Artist of the Year in The Boombox Fan Choice Awards.

In 2013, nothing held back Macklemore & Ryan Lewis. Their debut album, ‘The Heist,’ was a critical success and garnered them seven nominations for the 2014 Grammy Awards, including the coveted Album of the Year nod.

Although Kendrick Lamar‘s LP, ‘good kid, m.A.A.d city,’ was released in 2012, the Compton rhymer was still promoting the LP throughout 2013. He also shocked the world with his blistering verse on ‘Control,’ in which he proclaimed himself the king of East and West Coast rap circuits.

Fellow rhymer Drake also had a big year. His third LP, ‘Nothing Was the Same,’ was a big seller in 2013. In addition, he launched his OVO Sound label and ended the year on a high note with two club bangers: ‘We Made It’ and ‘Trophies.’

Not to be outdone, Kanye West released ‘Yeezus,’ undoubtedly, the most polarizing album of his career. The G.O.O.D. Music leader also entered a new phase in his life — fatherhood. Elsewhere, his tirade with radio personality Sway Calloway and his verbal war with Nike, which led him to sign with Adidas, also made him one of the most talked-about figures in 2013.

Eminem was also hyped and charged with his new album, ‘The Marshall Mathers LP 2.’

Meanwhile, J. Cole released his very personal effort, ‘Born Sinner,’ which featured ‘Let Nas Down,’ his apologetic ode to his rap idol.

Odd Future leader Tyler, the Creator released ‘Wolf,’ which is considered his best album of his career.

Closing out the list are rappers Mac Miller, Chance the Rapper and Action Bronson who all released noteworthy projects in 2013.

Now it’s time to make your voice heard. Who do you think should be crowned Hip-Hop Artist of the Year? Vote for the rapper you believe should take home The Boombox Fan Choice Award below! Remember you can vote once per hour until the poll closes on Feb. 11, at 10AM EST.
