The Black Sheep vs. Main Source GOAT Match-Up Is Too Close To Call. Decide Who Advances.

“Finding the GOAT Group,” the fourth installment of Ambrosia For Heads’s annual competition series features Hip-Hop’s greatest collectives vying for the #1 spot. Sixty-two groups have been pre-selected by a panel of experts, and one slot will be reserved for a wild-card entry, including the possibility for write-in candidates, to ensure no deserving band of MCs and DJs is neglected. The 2018 contest consists of seven rounds, NCAA basketball-tournament style, leading to a Top 32, then the Sweet 16 and so on, until one winner is determined. For each match-up, two groups are pitted against one another with a ballot to decide which one advances to the next round. Though there will be an enormous amount of debate in comments, on social media, in barbershops and text messages, which we encourage, only votes cast in the official ballot (below) count.

On Friday (June 22), voting will begin as AFH readers can crown a Wild Card winner, with the option to write-in any Hip-Hop group that belongs in the bracket. Those polls will close Sunday night (June 24). Next week, “Finding The GOAT Group” enters Round 2, with the elected Wild Card champion joining the fold.

Before we can establish the 32 groups in Round 2, there is one race that remains too close to call. As of this morning (June 20), Main Source and Black Sheep are at a dead heat, the closest race in all of Round 1. Your vote will decide which short-lived New York City collective belongs in Round 2.
