While other entities are naming the top albums of the decade, Billboard, the premier music chart publication, is placing Fat Joe’s Terror Squad and rapper Mims near the top of a list of their own.
The two MCs are getting recognition today however for a less than stellar accomplishment, outranking all of Hip-Hop on Billboard’s list of top one hit wonders of the decade.
Joey Crack’s Terror Squad lineage came in at a crippling #2 on the list of one hit wonders for their 2004 hit “Lean Back.” Coming in at a close fourth place is Mims whose 2007“This is Why I’m Hot” was a hot track that fizzled and died soon after.
Atlanta’s resident snap and roll home team of D4L came in at #5 for “Laffy Taffy,” while Cee-Lo’s Gnarls Barkley super duo came in at #7 for “Crazy.”
Here’s the complete list of one hit wonders in Hip-Hop:
J-Kwon Tipsy #11
Lil Romeo-My baby #14
Youngbloodz and Lil Jon- Damn #18
Cassidy/R. Kelly- Hotel #21
Rich Boy-Throw Some Ds #27
Hurricane Chris- A Bay Bay #30
Jibbs- Chaing Hang Low #31
Young Dro/T.I. Shoulder Lean #39
Hurricane Chris is definitely not a one hit wonder, neither is Cassidy or The YoungBloodz. We’ll give Rich Boy a pass too because he probably has more Zone 4 hits to come.
There were spot on with Jibbs and J-Kwon though!
