The Source magazine’s annual Power 30 issue dates back 16 years, and like each before, this year’s edition was the topic of conversation throughout the blogosphere. Expect that to continue with today’s announcement of the top five picks on their digital list.

Last week the publication announced the first 25 selections, which included well known sites like VICE, Miss Info, Hip Hop Since 1987, Hip Hop-N-More, and a host of others. Yours truly also clocked in at number 10 this time around.

However, this left many inquiring who would rest comfortably at the top of the crop. Now that the cat is out of the bag, the number one pick — WorldStarHipHop — will likely strike controversy among the Hip-Hop’s talking heads.

The Power 30 issue, which features Juicy J and Big Sean on separate covers, has been available for purchase since August 29. See the each of the digital choices on The Source‘s website. Read the top five below.
