Another Colorado hip-hop artist has charted on CMJ's hip-hop chart. Massive props go out to Kid Hum, who checks in this week at number eighteen, just one spot being J Dilla, with his latest effort Offshore Drilling. Certainly a good look for the Kid, who now shares the distinction of having charted on CMJ's hip-hop charts with the Flobots, Procussions, Ichiban, Whygee and 1865. Sooner or later, folks are going to stop sleeping on Mile High hip-hop. Feeling like it's going to be sooner than later.
