It Was All Good: 10 Artists That Were Buzzing Last Year, Not So Much Now


The Hip-Hop generation in 2012 is as gluttonous as any genre in music. Today’s successful MC is one who can stay relevant in all facets including great music, social media awareness, touring, and so on.

Check out ten artists who were literally on the thoughts of every rap fan at one point last year and now, through not much fault of their own, ended up on a milk carton. Hit up the slides to start the story.

    Diddy always breaking up groups. Im only aware of 3 ppl on that list haha I didn’t know they had a hit

    Who dees people?  Willow’s opportunity was squandered by the failure to put out an album in a timely fashion.  Maybe they will do it right next time because unlike the others on this list she will get another opportunity.

  • Sweetrose78

    Half of the people of the list I know nothing of… But I believe that it’s best if some of them don’t get career revivals anytime soon.
