2017 was a year of breakout stars: Cardi B, 21 Savage, XXXTentacion, Lil Uzi Vert, Lil Pump and A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie all went from 0 to 100. Of course some familiar faces continued to reign, like Migos, Future, Drake, Gucci Mane and Kendrick Lamar. It was also a year of interesting collaborations: Pharrell had Rihanna try her hand at rapping, Jay-Z and No I.D. threw it back to the Blueprint era, and Calvin Harris competed with DJ Khaled to see who could have the most features on an album. Overall, a super eclectic and exciting year in hip-hop!
