While it’s not quite the end of 2016, we can already say with confidence that this year has been huge for musicians and the albums they’ve released. We’ve listened to some incredible music from chart-topping artists like Beyoncé, Ariana Grande, Kendrick Lamar, Drake, and Rihanna. Artists like Yuna and Corinne Bailey Rae held it down for left-leaning R&B, while YG and and ScHoolboy Q repped for the West Coast rap scene.
But this is Hip Hop My Way and we are curious to see what the best selling Hip Hop albums of 2016 will be. We’ve got a month and a half until the exact numbers are in, but we have a good idea where things will land. However, in times like these, it’s unfair exclude streaming in the success of an album. So we’ve included artists that other lists have unfairly left behind (because you literally couldn’t buy the album), but have killed it in the streaming game.
