One Response to “Indie and Indie-Minded Hip Hop of 2006”

  1. Ben Says:

    There was another Soul Position album? Note how Def Jux and such have just flat dropped off the radar since all the indie types decided to jump on Clipse/Ghost type stuff about 5 years too late.

    Man, don’t get me started on that Clipse album again. Easily the most overrated release of the year.
