Serving as the end credits to the season, Labor Day is the unofficial-official end of the summer. Time to trade in the jorts and rooftop functions for the inevitable army of olive parkas and pumpkin spice everything.
In addition to spending the day declaring ourselves as certifiably washed for the rest of the year, we’re also looking back at the artists who made the most of the last few months: Drake, Fetty Wap, Future, N.W.A, and The Weeknd. Each of these nominees contributed to our summer frenzy in different instances—be it chart topping singles, block buster films or lukewarm rap beef. This summer was lit thanks to these folks, but there can only be one winner. (Sort of like Highlander.)
