Who is the most popular artist right now?

There are tons of artists that are extremely popular in the mainstream right now, but who is the most popular? I think the hottest guys right now are 2 Chainz, Ye and Big Sean. All accumulating HUGE fanbases. I haven’t heard much from Wayne, Drake, or much from MMG. Meek Millz is dropping and album sometime this month, so he might get hot around then.

I’d have to say 2 Chainz though, literately everyone is singing that “Birthday” song.

Why is everyone adding “SKORG” at the end of their name? What the fuck is that?

@AlCapone_SKONM That’s korean pop, not rap.

Drake and 2 Chainz are really popular right now.

Drake and Nicki Minaj. Weezy’s looking more like their number 2 now tbqh.
Kanye and Jay-Z are as popular as ever.
2Chainz is kinda popular but he’ll fall off soon. He’s carried too much by features.

Man I don’t think theres ever a number one in the game. You have to get specific. If you talking about radio plays you’d get one thing, if you talk about youtube views its another guy, if youre talking about downloads its another guy, its hard to say. But if there was one person that I’d say is on the rise, its either 2Chainz or Meek Mill.

sad to say but tyga and lil wayne are the most popular and almost everyday people talk about how they are the “greatest”… i think its sad that these two are the “greatest” rappers right now according to my whole school

Probably Eminem. After recovery, he’s everywhere. Really popular in Asia too
