After weeks of time, effort, and debate from the staff at Rapzilla, we bring to you our nominations for who we chose as leading in a specific category as it relates to doing music. The categories for 2012 are: Artist, Album, Free Album, Single, Group/Crew, New Artist, Record Label, Producer, Album Cover, and Music Video.

To qualify to be nominated, the artist must have released an official full length album, or EP available at retail outlets with a release date between December 2011 and November 2012. We will be following up and posting the winners by reader votes as well as Rapzilla's Best of 2012 picks. Voting ends January 20th 2012.
