NOMINEES: Future, Kendrick Lamar, Drake, Fetty Wap, Big Sean
*CRITERIA: Most Important + impactful artist of 2015
It was an entire year of dominance for Future, Kendrick Lamar, Drake, Big Sean and Fetty Wap. There was a lot going on, but throughout the year these artists were the ones that represented all sides of hip hop the best in 2015. Both Future and Big Sean had resurgences for the ages that took their career out of critical condition and turned themselves into hop hop A-listers. Kendrick Lamar dropped another critically acclaimed LP that garnered him 11 Grammy nominations. Drake released two hit albums, multiple hit singles, and was the victor of the most important beef of 2015. Fetty Wap went from no one to dropping hit records at a record setting pace.
