Thanksgiving, a day families congregate to observe their blessings, should be no different in practice for your favorite rappers. But as a precaution, Hip-Hop Wired took the time to list MCs, who in the words of the great "Prince Akeem" should be "very happy to be here."
No, this isn't a diss. If anything, it's an homage of sorts. Managing to maintain success in Hip-Hop is a feat in itself, but this list of wordsmiths have experienced adversities in their careers that would have ethered most, for lack of a better term.
That said, these are 10 rappers who should be thankful to have a career. See our selections in the gallery on the following pages. Feel free to agree or disagree in the comments.
