Kendrick Lamar Wins Triple J’s Hottest 100 Of 2017

Written by Emmy Mack on January 27, 2018

UPDATE: Some People Aren’t Happy About Kendrick Lamar’s Hottest 100 Win

ORIGINAL STORY: Well DAMN. Hip-hop king Kendrick Lamar has done it, taking out triple J’s Hottest 100 of 2017 with his gangsta rap-dismantling anthem, ‘HUMBLE’.

As the internet’s foremost stat-crunchers rightfully predicted, Kung Fu Kenny nabbed the number 1 spot in today’s big countdown with his highly J-rotated single, narrowly beating out Aussie faves Gang Of Youths, who bagged a silver medal on the hottest hundo podium with ‘Let Me Down Easy’ as well as taking #41 with their Like A Version cover of Middle East’s ‘Blood’, #5 with ‘The Deepest Sighs, The Frankest Shadows’ and ‘What Can I Do If The Fire Goes Out?’ at #10.

The rest of the top 10 songs Australia voted as the most fire of 2017 included Lorde’s ‘Greenlight’ at #6, Methyl Ethel’s ‘Ubu’ at #4 and Vance Joy at #9.

Awesomely, this year’s Hottest hundo was 65% homegrown, with 65 of the tunes to get a guernsey on the Big List performed by Aussie artists, including 6 out of the top 10.

26 artists also popped their Hottest 100 cherries this year, including UK jokester grimelord Big Shaq with ‘Man’s Not Hot’.

ICYMI: Today marked the first time in yonkers that JJJ’s Hottest 100 didn’t take place on Australia Day, after triple j decided to move the countdown away from 26th January.

The Hottest 200 will follow tomorrow — Sunday, 28th January — when Double J will also be replaying the 1997 Hottest 100 (i.e. the most popular Hottest 100 of all time).
