Top 10 Music Artists Most Likely to Be Added Rolling Stone 100 Greatest Music Artists of All Time ListRolling Stone has updated their lists of the greatest songs and greatest albums relatively recently so it's probably not that unlikely they will update their list of the greatest music artists. Here is a list of music artists who have a good chance of being added to the list if it is updated. These aren't necessarily the artists we most want them to include and obviously I could be wrong about some of these but I thought I would have a guess at it.
Feel free to add artists I might have missed but try and consider who has the best chance based on their critical reception or influence. Don't just add artists that you love and don't add artists who were already on the list.

I don't really intend this list to be in any particular order except that Kanye West is easily the artist I most expect to make the list and I would imagine him being pretty high on the list. Honestly the fact that he wasn't already on the list in 2010 is a little surprising.
Despite his personality and controversial takes, he is definitely a talented artist, and one of the best rappers of the 2010's.
They should extend it to 200 artist. I hate it when they overlook classical, jazz or blues artist.
I don't think many people on TheTopTens know this guy and to be fair I don't know his music well either besides him being a neo soul singer but all three of his albums made their greatest albums of all time list so I would say he has a reasonable shot.
Meanwhile an artist on no one's mind in 2010 as the most critically acclaimed music act of the 2010s in any genre I think it's a fairly safe bet Kendrick Lamar will be on the list and probably fairly high.
Outkast haven't actually made any new music since the previous list in 2010 but with their representation on the lists of greatest songs and albums having improved notably I think there is a very good chance of them being there this time.
Hey it's not just r&b and hip hop. Fiona Apple was already a consistently highly praised singer songwriter in 2010 but the album with the ridiculously long title along with last years Fetch The Bolt Cutters will have improved her case considerably.
Given that Tupac was already on the list and Biggie has gone up a fair way on their greatest album and song lists I can easily imagine him being on the list this time.
I can see this happening as well.
Rolling Stones is very English-centric magazine. But recently, they show their diversity by including more new songs and rap songs. They also include his songs on top 50. So I'm not suprise if he's included because he is very influential in reggaeton music.
This might be a contentious pick for some people given that her early albums are probably regarded as good more often than great but on the other hand she is in the top 100 of both the greatest songs and artists lists multiple times so I doubt they would leave her of after that.
This might be a kind of left field guess considering they are easily the least widely known artist on the list and Rolling Stone are typically one of the more mainstream critical sources. However they were on the greatest albums of all time list 3 times so clearly they have some chance.
The most recent artist on this list with just two studio albums. As maybe the second most critically acclaimed new artist of the 2010s behind Kendrick Lamar I think he has a solid chance despite limited releases.
They aren't really far of the problem is that their case hasn't really improved since 2010.
She was born on December 13, 1989 in Reading, Pennsylvania. She is best known for writing personal songs and for having won 11 Grammys. She became interested in country music when she was around 9 years old, and after watching a documentary about Faith Hill, Swift felt that she should go to Nashville to begin a country music career.

I can already see eyes rolling here but she's on both the greatest songs of and albums list multiple times and pretty high at that with her last two albums only improving her case so I wouldn't be surprised at all if she made it. Also yes I couldn't be happier with that actually.
I like Bruno but let's be real here.
