Feature Video: 2011 Hip-Hop Award Season: Rookie Of The Year

Video Produced by Left Of Frame
Additional Camera work by Nahgee of Hot Mop Films and Omar Leonard
Photography by Alexander Richter

It’s that time of the year again. Allindstrom.com assembled a list of the most influential tastemakers in the game today, threw them in a room in the Digiwaxx Offices in NYC, and asked them to review the biggest moments of 2011. This years Allindstrom.com panel includes (from Left to Right) Joe La Puma (Complex Magazine), Brian “B. Dot” Miller (Rap Radar), Neil Ceasar (Digiwaxx), Jayson Rodriguez (XXL Magazine), Jeff Sledge (A&R/Allindstrom.com Guest Blogger), and Combat Jack (PNC Radio).

In the first of 4 videos, we take a look at Rookie Of The Year. We defined Rookie Of The Year as the artist who had their breakout year this year. Names like ASAP Rocky, Mac Miller, J. Cole, and Tyler, The Creator were thrown around. In the end it came down to the debate of numbers vs impact on the culture. Press play and check out which artist walked away with the award.
