Rap/Hip Hop Recorded Song of the Year
- "Name Droppin’" - Bone-Appetit Servin’ Up Tha Hits - T-Bone - WINNER
- "Open Bar" - Redemption - Grits
"Open Bar" is a truly unusual name for a Christian song and lyrically it wouldn't be a stretch to take this one the wrong way, but the great beat and guest appearance by Pigeon John make it a good sounding tune.
- "Wake Up" - The Yearbook - KJ-52 featuring Toby Morrell
- "Who Am I?" - Open Book - Da’ T.R.U.T.H. featuring Tye Tribbett
Way off of the beaten path, "Who Am I?" is a definite twist for Da’ T.R.U.T.H.
- "Word of Mouth" - Word of Mouth - John Reuben
- Compare Prices
John Reuben never fails to entertain with his sense of humor and fun while he is hitting straight talking points 110% of the time. "Word of Mouth" takes his talent even farther.

- "Comatose" - Comatose - Skillet - WINNER
