Top 20 Colorado Hip-Hop Tracks of 2007

To anyone who says there isn’t any dope hip-hop coming out of Colorado: you need to have your ears checked. I’ve compiled a list of what I think were the 20 hottest songs from Colorado hip-hop artists in the last 12 months. They range from mixtape joints, freestyles, album cuts, and leaked songs from upcoming projects and trust me, it wasn’t easy just picking 20.

Anyway, you like what you hear? Leave a comment. Want more from a particular artist? Check the Colorado Hip-Hop MySpace Directory to get more info on an artist or ask about them in the comments. So here it is, my 20 favorite Colorado hip-hop joints of 2007:
