Snoop Dogg, T.I. lead The 411's Best of 2006
The best part of The 411 Online's "Best of 2006" is that the seven writers who submitted their picks have different tastes, just like our readers. Sometimes we all have the same favorites from the year, but often we don't. The best album category was once again far from unanimous, but T.I. edged the field by a couple of votes. So King is just that among albums this year. But Snoop Dogg ruled among MCs, pictured because he was picked the most for artist of the year and made an appearance in almost every positive category. The fact his name appears so often on this list is reason enough for the honor. The picks for best single, video, collaboration and others were varied as well, making for a lot of honorees once again. And, it should be noted here that several choices came in for categories that did not exist on the list sent out to all of the writers. Rather than ignore them, we'll award them by default. So The Roots won group/duo of the year (Cvere), Rebels Advocate took home "best group you never heard of" honors (The W), Lil' Jon was named "best featured artist" (Mary Jane), Joe Budden's Mood Muzik 2 was the winner for "best mixtape" (Mr. Freez) and Snoop Dogg and Black Sheep's Dres split the vote for best lyricist (Mary Jane and Mason Storm).
