Top 3 In The Burg: Beatmaker Edition

Instead of compiling a best of 2011 list that focuses on my thoughts about the year's best releases I decided to focus on the area that I live in, Fredericksburg, Va. Fredericksburg is a hotbed for talent. With this edition I decided to focus on the beatmakers from the area. Coming up with five was definitely difficult so I just selected three. I want to give a shout out to Era, Kid Styles, Tef Wesley and more for your production contributions. If you know other beatmakers that I should check out drop their link in a comment.
