2023 is coming to an end, and for some fans of Hip Hop and rap music, it’s been a long year.

But it’s not over just yet!

Some music lovers may describe 2023 as a rough year for rap. The first Number 1 rap song to chart at the peak position on Billboard didn’t come until Latto’s Seven dropped in July. Also in July, the first Number 1 rap album, which was Pink Tape from Lil Uzi Vert, hit DSPs as well.
