rappers who are FINISHED
« on: May 14, 2009, 05:04:34 PM »
I was thinkin about how the industry has gone to shit and wondering who is still 'around'

I'm not talkin about rappers who you think are finished in the sense that their talent is gone and they need to give it up

I'm wondering who hasn't been seen in a while and in the last few years on MTV and had some noise and most likely their done because nobody gives a shit anymore...

here's a few that I can think of who will never have success or even publicity again....


Ja Rule

Lil Scrappy

Lil Jon

Obie Trice

Beanie Sigel

Memphis Bleek

D-12

Busta can't be added to the list the guy has been around for a very long time and its not even his worst album.Besides the fact that hate or love it arab money and hustlers anthem got spins.I think almost any rapper including ti would trade places with busta without a second thought

I was in the music store and 2pac's California Love came on.Track from 1995 got more play then these new guys.Soulja Boy hands down, hes dead, he was shot and bleeding out when his single came out, the Album was just the shotgun to the face.
 

Action!

Cool breeze; I'm hopping out of new Beams
My outfit ran me a few G's but none of that will matter if you leave
I used to be an Adam with two Eves and shawtys automatically do me
Excuse me, all that happened before you doesn't matter
I'm a vision of the future climbing the success ladder
Recline, in the mean time, twenty three shine, diamond bling blind as I rewind

Lil Scrappy ain't done. He just signed a deal with DTP, and Def Jam picked up for the distribution. On top of that, they gave him distribution for his label, G's Up Ent.

I added Busta Rhymes to the list after the big disappointment.  I disagree with Lil' Jon but some on the list I agree with.

2pac and Biggie

what are you talking about Pac's still releasing shit.

Yeah, but he hasn't been in rap as much anymore, once his next album is severely fucked with remix, pasted vocals and pairs of retards trying to gain more street credit, and production that he probably wouldn't of ever rapped over, I'm sure people will be talking about him again.The main topic would mainly be "god damn, glad I DLed the OGs to the album 4 years ago". Biggie well he only had 2 albums worth, and 1 demotape.

Eazy E's double album was only made into 1 book, so that is a Entire second book not released.That could be released as "Ghost of Compton" or some shit like "Ruthless 4 Ever" or "I'm a come back like pac"

Hittman had 1 album ready, it was canceled and eventually leaked, his second 1 I think was released or shelved and then leaked (can't remember lol)

Cypress Hill, well they are pretty much sold out (After IV), disbanded and pursuing Solo carriers.

Eminem will drop Relapse 1, generate controversy for dispersing white America's social norm. The controversy will probably just retain around Nick Cannon, Drug abuse (Media will say he is for it), the song about his uncle molestation, Child advocacy groups will say something like "Eminem's distasteful Album Relapse is hurting all the work we have done to help kids".People will say he is mocking alcoholics with the title "relapse" and with its content.Every so called "Shock" lyric he used on the album, will generate controversy (IMO they aren't that shocking).

Eminem will drop Relapse 2, and what ever that talks about (Homosexuals,his mom,drug abuse, and possibly kim or some other 4th factor) will generate the same controversy, but probably on a less grand scale (depends how much shock lyrics it contains).

Once he's done either 1 or 2 things will happen. 1 He stops after both relapse albums or 2 he will continue recording, it could possibly go the way of Encore or hopefully the way of TMMLP. Either way once his thing is done he won't be in the news.

In the end all of our favorite artist (Westcoast especially) will all eventually stop and all we have left on the radio/TV is a bunch of crappy south songs and sell outs while they play a Tupac song or video every once and awhile just to stay "real" with their listeners.

Only way the Westcoast can make a comeback (and hopefully bring back the G-Funk Era) is if Dr. Dre drops Detox, Death Row starts releasing unreleased material in its original NOT FUCKED form,
 and the other original West Coast artist start to go back to the style and not these new sell out style,

The game needs to drop a actual West Coast album (L.A.X. wasn't a good follow up to Doctors Advocate which was his strongest album)

Bishop Lamont needs to drop his album

Fucking Ice Cube needs to actually be fucking Political, I'm sorry as much as I liked Raw Footage, the fucking thing was just reiterating shit on the news. Wasn't the entire socially conscious genre about rapping about stuff the media blatantly ignores?

Labels need to sign more West Coast Artist, The only 1s who are making some break into the mainstream are the originals who are just selling to a dieing fan base, with each album they go more the sell out/pop and the fans just tune it out.

 :'( But, then again as long as we have no more fuckers like Soulja Boy I'll be happy  8) 8) 8)

Lil Jon is still one of the few dope producers from the south. Shit he does for DPG, Too Short, and E-40 is major heat.
