It’s all of the names you would expect to see — Chris Brown, Rick Ross, Lil Wayne, Jay-Z, Kanye West, Nicki Minaj, Wiz Khalifa, etc. The Best Mixtape category has some strong entrees with Big K.R.I.T.’s “Return of 4Eva,” Kendrick Lamar ’s “Section.80” and Frank Ocean’s “Nostalgia Ultra.”

- Comes 2012, say goodbye to Mos Def and hello to Yassin.
