10 Rappers Who Should Be Thankful To Have A Career


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.

    who ever wrote this article has absolutely no business writing about hip hop, Diddy signed the LOX because of their undeniable talent, Kanye’s controversies surrounding his personality and speaking out are a large part of who he is artistically. That’s his style, that’s why people buy his music, in other words, you were criticizing the source of his success. I agree to a degree with a lot written in this article, but mostly it is lazy, and in many places swings and misses. Also this website blows, you shoved an ad in my face which I had to watch in order to read the list, that’s ridiculous, I will never come here again. You should think about fixing these problems.
