50 Cent, DMX, Nelly, and others, have opened the door for rappers to sing their own hooks, but when they’re vocal chords get tired, they know exactly who to call. The Dream, Jeremih, and Roscoe Dash are just some who have made a living off their voices, null of any strong vocal ability.
Not that that’s a bad thing. It’s important to know your lane when getting into any industry, so if an artist knows where they fit, and can actually make money in the process, congratulations are in order.
In the case of The Dream, he’s a talented songwriter and producer. Even after taking a feathery jab at The Weeknd for jacking his style, there’s no denying that he can kill a feature—and the rap game has taken notice. Kanye West, Pusha T, Fabolous and more have jumped on tracks with the Radio Killah, which led Hip-Hop Wired to take a look at the singers whose octave range isn’t nearly as strong as their selling power.
Take a look at our list of struggle-voiced singers who are not only running the radio, but have big things on the horizon.
Respect the hustle.
