In addition to MCs and rappers, the parameters were expanded to also include producers. It was quickly agreed upon that Fetty Wap’s record-breaking year has earned him the list’s top spot. The “Trap Queen” connoisseur has been dominating mainstream radio. Despite being largely ignored by the mainstream media, Logic also earned a spot on the list.

Charlamagne broke down his perspective on the Def Jam wordsmith. The Breakfast Club host offered, “Logic is interesting because he doesn’t get radio play, but he has one of those cult-like followings fueled by social media and they actually support him when his album drops.”
