Notable hooks: "Type of Way," "My Nigga," "Walk Thru"
Despite rising in Future's shadow, Rich Homie Quan is his own man. The Atlanta rapper burst onto the scene last year with his huge, slang-term spawning record "Type of Way." The song proved to be a star-making turn for Rich Homie, and he followed it up with an important featured chorus on "My Nigga." The YG single gained traction both on the radio and online, where the "My nigga/My nigga" chorus became a popular background in viral Vine videos.
With "My Nigga" being a notable exception, Quan has saved most of his best hooks for his own work. In addition to "Type of Way," his slept-on new tape I Promise I Will Never Stop Going In featured a smattering of catchy choruses, including the Problem collaboration "Walk Thru" and "Get TF Out My Face" featuring Young Thug. While none of the songs have blown up like his previous work, they showcased a young rapper hungry for success. What comes next is up to him. —Chris Mench
