After one of the closest rounds of this tournament so far we have finally reached each region’s championship game. Let’s not forget that we also had a tie in one matchup and it almost ended in a tie again but here we are the eight best solo debuts that will soon become the four best.

If you thought it was tough to make a decision on who to vote for before, just wait until you see these matchups. Needless to say, somebody’s gotta lose.

And as always, if you’re viewing on your phone, please turn it sideways.

Scarface is out. Rakim barely survived a toe-to-toe with Ghostface Killah, and several big albums continued to blow through the competition like a blowtorch through butter.

Which brings us to each division’s Elite 8. Two days to vote, so voting ends Friday, and think carefully about these choices.

And as always, if you’re viewing on your phone, please turn it sideways.

The play-in matches went as predicted for the most part. Maybe not in the numbers, but it was chalk across the board. Now we get into the meat of the contests with the first round underway from now until Thursday, April 1.

Vote early and get your people to vote for your favorites. Holla at us on Twitter with your complaints and feelings over these hard choices.

And once again, if viewing on your phone, turn it horizontal before you vote.
