Future’s only rapper will spend all of 2022 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart

Future has been recognized as the only rapper to spend all of 2022 on the Billboard Hot 100, surpassing other rap superstars including Drake.

The data was shared in a tweet by Hip hop all day, which shows that King Pluto spent a total of 52 weeks at the top of the chart, helped in part by his ninth studio album I NEVER LIKED YOU which fell earlier this year.

Future beat several other major rappers, including Drake, who remained on the chart for 51 weeks. Other top contenders included Lil Baby, Doja Cat, Jack Harlow, 21 Savage, Latto and Lil Nas X.

The Atlanta rap icon had a massive 2022, so much so that he sold a large portion of his music publishing catalog to influence media partners. In September, Future reportedly sold off a good chunk of his catalog in a lucrative eight-figure deal said to be worth upwards of $75 million.

The future leaderboard I NEVER LIKED YOU album also included Apple Music’s most streamed song of 2022 in “WAIT 4 U” with Drake and Tems.

Hendrix also bought some new real estate this year, purchasing a lavish ocean-view condo for $7.5 million in Miami. It includes a private pool and four-car garage on the same floor, along with “a gym, spa, pool, lobby bar, restaurant, whiskey bar, cigar lounge, game room and a movie theater” decorated to look like the inside of a Bentley car.

Future finds melodic songs ‘easier’ to make than rap records

Elsewhere, in a lengthy interview with Billboard earlier this year, Pluto spoke frankly about its cultural influence and said that it was “difficult” to think of oneself as an inspiration.

“That shit’s tough, bro. I guess I’ve got to be a vessel for what not to do,” he said. “In some things, I have to be a lesson in what I have to do. So I believe you live and learn through me, and if I have to be that victim, I believe so.”

He continued:[I want] for someone to live better than me. I want another artist to come behind me [what Iā€™m doing] even better than I do. [I would want to] change the bad things they can see in me and make it better for them. That’s what I want more than anything else.ā€

In other future news, I NEVER LIKED YOU was nominated for Best Rap Album at the 2023 Grammys, and he’s ready to start his One big party trip starting in January, which will include supporting performances from Kodak black, Trippie Redd, Polo G, EST Hello, Babyface RayRob49 and others.
