Welcome to week 3 of our "Rap Label Fantasy League", where Marshall and myself act like we're label managers, and use real life streaming and social data to simulate success or failures. Using the fantasy football model, we have drafted 2 teams of 7 hip hop artists. We've been tracking 4 stats: Spotify Monthly Listeners % Increase, Youtube Views % Increase, Instagram Followers % Increase, and Perceived Value Total Increase.

It's official. After all the doubt and hate, Team Hoosier takes a commanding 3-1 lead in the Lyrically Rap Label Manager Fantasy League. It did come a little later than expected though. Yeah, we may have 'planned' to record scores like two weeks ago. But things happen. Christmas, craziness, and stuff. We were lazy over our Christmas break.

Dude is an [...]
We're trying out something new here, something to stir up a little friendly and hopefully entertaining competition. Welcome to Lyrically Rap's "Label Manager Fantasy League". Its basically Fantasy Football, but instead of comparing football stats, we'll be drafting Lyrical Rap artist to our fantasy Rap Label.
