Best Hip-Hop Song of 2015 – The Boombox Fan Choice Awards
In 2015, there was no shortage of infectious club bangers and street anthems that made fans want to do the Nae Nae or get turned up on the dance floor. So for our 3rd Annual Boombox Fan Choice Awards, we've selected 20 hip-hop songs to choose from but only one can be your favorite. So without further ado, here are the nominees for Best Hip-Hop Song of 2015.
Drake and Future ruled the rap game in 2015, period. This is why the dynamic duo are listed three times in our year-end poll. Drizzy and Future Hendrix appear for their solo tracks, “Hotline Bling” and “F--- Up Some Commas,” respectively, and for their collaborative song, “Jumpman” from their joint project, What a Time to Be Alive.
Meanwhile, Kendrick Lamar released To Pimp a Butterfly, arguably, one of the best rap albums of 2015. The LP's anti-police brutality track “Alright” gets a nod for its socially conscious message. Another song that touched many souls this year is Wiz Khalifa's elegiac tune, "When I See You Again" featuring Charlie Puth.
There were a lot more dance-inspired songs in 2015, thanks to three rappers who love to show off their fancy footwork. Rap newcomer Silento had the world watching him do the Whip and Nae Nae with "Watch Me." Another up-and-coming rhymer, IHeartMemphis, had us dropping it low with "Hit the Quan." Finally, Rich Homie Quan made fans gyrate on the dance floor with his infectious hit, "Flex (Oooh Ooh Ooh)."
New Jersey rapper Fetty Wap saluted his ride-or-die chick on his chart-topping hit, "Trap Queen," while Big Sean said goodbye to his annoying girlfriend on "I Don't F--- With You." Philly spitfire Meek Mill fell in love and released the rap ballad "All Eyes" featuring his boo Nicki Minaj.
Other songs that grace this nominees list include K Camp’s "Comfortable, Migos' "Pipe It Up," Macklemore's "Downtown," Post Malone's "White Iverson," Lupe Fiasco's "Mural" and Rae Sremmurd's “Come Get Her.”
