ChartWatch for March 31, 2010

important. What is important is that I
went to check the comments from last weeks column and guess what? No spam.
No bootleg Jordans. No fake
Gucci. No come check my website or listen
to my demo. Just comments about .Hip
Hop. I had to go and check some other
articles just to be sure. Looks like its
a new day...but not for the Hip Hop charts.
