Top Artists Of All Time: Division 4-Alternative Hip-Hop

The voting continues for the Top artists Of All Time. Each Friday, station to station is showcasing the top artists of all time. The panel is nineteen friends and com-padres of music who pick their favorite 6 arists out of a division of 32. The top 8 artists receiving votes move on to a semifinal round-which looks like it will be slated in October. Out of 20 voters, 16 (80%) cast ballots for Division 4: Alternative Hip-Hop.

Out of 32 artists, 23 received at least one vote. A Tribe Called Quest pulled ahead of Cypress Hill for the top spot in this division. Of the 16 ballots, 7 cast A Tribe Called Quest number 1 on their ballot. What's the Scenario? On the overall standings board, A Tribe Called Quest moved ahead of Bob Dylan (for seeding purposes) into second place. Also receiving the love this round was Fugees, De La Soul, The Roots, Arrested Development, and Digable Planets. Like last week, the final ballot put Common in the number 8 spot leaving Everlast and Mos Def behind. The tiebreaker? Common was on 4 ballots while the other two artists were only on 3.
