Top Ten Rappers and Hip Hop Groups Who Had at Least Three Albums Topping the German Media Control Charts

While individual songs hardly pop up in he top position, many albums per year make their way to the number one spot. Only a handful of artists of the genre also had chart topping success earlier, and not to such an extent as it is the case nowadays. But it’s nothing unusual anymore for an artist who annually releases music to peak at the highest possible position with each record once they caught mainstream attention. So, let’s take a look at which artists managed to reach the number one spot on the album charts at least three times.

Every release that has the artist credited as main artist counts, that also includes live albums, compilations, collaborations, etc.
