As we enter the year 2007, we must take a moment to reflect on 2006. And what better way to do that than get our entire staff together to select our favorites of the past year. Yeah…many of you will bitch, moan and complain but isn’t what these lists are for? We don’t expect you bastards to agree with us all the time. We even tossed in a readers choice award and I’m sure some of you won’t be happy with those results either. At any rate, take a look at the First Annual DX Awards and see if our views fall in line with yours. Piss and moan (or do the unthinkable and give us props!) about it in the comments. Hopefully we’ll get it right in 2007.

Emcee of the Year

Lupe Fiasco

The young Chicago native displayed a mind-bending set of skills that we rarely ever see. His brilliant narratives and concepts are delivered with flawless dexterity, a liquid flow and absolutely remarkable rhyme schemes. The scary things is, he is just getting started.
