Hot Rap Songs

Hot Rap Songs (formerly known as Hot Rap Tracks and Hot Rap Singles) is a chart released weekly by Billboard in the United States. It lists the 25 most popular hip-hop/rap songs, calculated weekly by airplay on rhythmic and urban radio stations and sales in hip hop-focused or exclusive markets. Streaming data and digital downloads were added to the methodology of determining chart rankings in 2012.[1] From 1989 through 2001, it was based on how much the single sold in that given week.[2] The most weeks at number one was "Hot Boyz" by Missy Elliott featuring Nas, Eve and Q-Tip,[3] and "Fancy" by Iggy Azalea and Charli XCX, singles that were number one for 18 weeks from December 1999 to March 2000 and May 2014 to August 2014.[4]
