SEMTEX TV - ?UESTLOVE BREAKS DOWN THE HOTTEST MC'S FOR 09' from DJ SEMTEX on Vimeo
Oh boy..you have to watch this video above where ?uestlove of The Roots breaks down his predictions for hip hop in 2009. He includes his thoughts on the hottest new MC, the '09 big dog and Twitter. There will be some names you may not expect him to mention (at least I didn't) but the music biz is about who excites the clubs and brings in the dollars not who is the most creative.
