Chris Riemenschneider of the Minneapolis Star Tribune wrote a nice little story recapping the best of 2008. Included in the article are some nice hip-hop references. Muja Messiah received "Best Two-fer Musician," in dropping two differing releases this year, MPLS Massacre and Thee Adventures of a B-Boy/D-Boy. Rhymesayers festival Soundset 2008 was honored as "Best Festival," and Ant and I Self Devine were even given their respective best moments of the year.
It's good to see artists other than Brother Ali or Atmosphere get their shine in larger publications like the Trib. The Twin Cities hip-hop scene has much more to offer than just its big-name acts, and that is beginning to be recognized more.
