Future's charge to the front of the Rap Power Rankings really is one of the biggest stories of the year. When 2015 kicked off, his Honest album had essentially flopped and his fan base was loyal but relatively small. And then he went on an prolific mixtape run, culminating in a hugely successful DS2 album release and the Future Hive.
And just like that, Future went from sideshow to the only rapper Drake's ever done a collaborative project with. Before this year kicked off it would have been crazy to say that Future would have a bigger impact on 2015 hip-hop than Jay Z did, but here we are.
