Likewise, since the beginning of 2022 it was on the list with different collaborations. ‘pushin P’along with Gunna and Young Thug, was one of the most interesting.
This is one of the rapper’s biggest milestones, however it does not fully encompass his last year. In fact, the iconic Hendrix sold a large part of his music catalog to Influence Media Partners. Furthermore, the trade deal was in the eight figures which is said to be in excess of 75 million dollars.

In the last 10 years, Future has achieved more than 150 tickets on the Billboard Hot 100. In fact, many of these entries are even prior to the changes in eligibility for the top and the implementation of broadcasts in the selection criteria. Furthermore, in an interview recent rapper with Billboard, assured that he could double his numbers in much less time.
It’s like I became a different person. I don’t even think about it anymore. That is what I am. It is only part of the story. It’s all part of being an artist. I can’t think about the numbers because I’m still doing my best. I think I’m going to pass my Hot 100 stat faster than I did my 155 innings, or whatever. Plus, I can get to that number in fewer years. If it took me six years to do that, now I can do it in two years just because of the time and the broadcasts on the songs.
If Hendrix enjoys anything, it is immense security in his work and that is, in part, what has led him so far. We are anxious to know who will be the rapper that dominates the Billboard Hot 100 this 2023. Do you dare to make a prediction?
