Following the release of his debut album in August, Jahseh Onfroy claims his No 1 songwriter spot for the third week running, with other rappers holding their own close behind, showcasing the power streaming has had for the genre. Just 19 and recently released from prison, Onfroy got his start with a Blue Snowball microphone and a plethora of influences ranging from Kurt Cobain to Tupac Shakur.
