Build-A-Label 2.0: WE HAVE A WINNER 

Post#1 » by Phish Tank » Thu Sep 14, 2017 12:00 am

After receiving everyone's votes, I am ready to announce the winner of the Build-A-Label 2.0 Draft.

The rankings are based on a weighted factor based on the number of 1st place, 2nd place, and 3rd place votes. 1st place votes get a weight of 1, 2nd 0.50, and 3rd 0.25.

The rankings are all below:

1st Place: Spree8
2nd Place: 3toheadmelo
3rd Place: Fury
4th Place (Tie): Slicin' and Dicin', Illmatic Handler, Greenie
7th Place: Manhattan Project
8th Place: Phish Tank
9th Place: Mecca
Last Place (tie): HEZI, ctorres

Again, thanks to everyone for participating. Remember, this is all about personal tastes, so don't take this too personally.

Congrats to Spree8 for winning the competition!

I'll only release the full rankings only if everyone is open to it as I don't want people to get upset over their particular ranking.

I can say though that you two weren't at the bottom

Yeah, I peeped it. I think Blu is sober again and he's still type young so I wouldn't put another classic past them. Actually going to the Below the Heavens tour in November. 10 year anniversary.

I see... your a lot more optimistic than I am. The first one was such a classic that I don't think this one will even come close. Hopefully I'm wrong. Still pretty crazy that it's been ten years already, played the hell of the album when it came out.

I still have weeks that I binge front-back the album. Something I grew up on. Not many hip-hop albums today really have that energy that Exile had with BTH & Boy Meets World.

BTW, anyone else rock with J.I.D? Cole's ear for talent is impressive. Love this dude. Mos Def just gave him respect saying he was the best young dude in the game right now.

If Kendrick was raised and influenced in Atlanta, for sure.

there definitely were.

Just to clarify, being in last place doesn't mean no one liked your picks. It's probably that everyone didn't have it in their top 3. Theoretically, I could have weighted all the votes based on pure rank, but that would have been a much larger process. Therefore, I just stuck with the top 3 for each person.
