I voted for NF as Best Artist of 2015
NF may have been the most visible Christian hip-hop artist of 2015.
The amount of television placements the Capitol CMG artist received was unrivaled. The second highest-selling video game of 2015, Madden NFL 16, included “Intro,” included the lead single of his March album Mansion, on its soundtrack. NF songs also placed on ESPN during the NFL Draft and the hit television show Empire.
Out of all the Christian hip-hop albums released in 2015, Mansion sold the most. After selling 10,169 units in week one and peaking at No. 62 on the Billboard 200, Mansion finished 2015 at No. 25 on Billboard’s year-end Top Christian Albums chart — edging out Andy Mineo’s Uncomfortable and KB’s Tomorrow We Live. NF’s song “I’ll Keep On” featuring Jeremiah Carlson also landed at No. 47 on Billboard’s Hot Christian Songs chart based on radio airplay, giving him the only Christian hip-hop song on the list.
