Rusty Redenbacher is back on top of the local hip-hop poll this year. It's been a busy year for Rusty: on top of his regular slots on WTLC and the now-gone IMC, the former Birdmen of Alcatraz and Mudkids founder is tweeting, blogging and repping Indy constantly. Rusty's mostly a solo player these days, and he's going by a new moniker: The Tinkerer. He released the self-produced LP Lower in early 2013, another four-star entry into the sometimes-twisted, always-entertaining mind of Rusty.
