2019 was dominated by newer names in the hip-hop space grabbing their first No. 1 albums on the Billboard 200, as artists like A Boogie wit da Hoodie, Young Thug, DaBaby, YoungBoy Never Broke Again and the late Juice WRLD were among those lucky enough to send full-lengths all the way to the top of the tally.
