Rap Power Rankings, August 2015

August was a hectic month for hip-hop, although one of the great things about doing these rankings is that we’ve come to realize that every month is a hectic month for hip-hop. That’s exactly why we love it. Entire careers are made and broken in the span of 30 days, and this month was an excellent example of just how quickly the game can switch.

While the year-long contest remains a two-man race between Drake and Kendrick, this month finds an impressive four artists making their debut, and another four artists from last month’s charts falling out of the top ten. From Dr. Dre emerging from a historic hiatus to conquer rap to Jay Electronica clinging to the top ten, welcome to this month’s Rap Power Rankings.
