The 10 most-streamed new rap albums on Spotify in 2023

There have been plenty of great rap albums released this year.

In the world of rap music, this year's headlines have been mostly dominated by the courtrooms.

In August, Tory Lanez was sentenced to 10 years in prison after being found guilty of shooting Megan Thee Stallion.

In September, Keefe D was arrested after being indicted by a grand jury for the 1996 murder of Tupac Shakur.

Young Thug, meanwhile, has remained behind bars at the Fulton County Jail while the high-profile RICO (Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations) case against him and other members of YSL has rumbled on.

Away from the courts, however, 2023 has also been a stellar year for new rap music.

Below, Rising Rap his listed the 10 most-streamed new rap albums on Spotify this year, according to statistics gathered by ChartMasters.
