If Hip-Hop fans are honest, they can admit the 1990s was a time of both innovation and supreme levels of struggle rap before the term was coined. Although it was the decade that gave us classics from Public Enemy, Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg and Wu-Tang Clan, among many others, there were plenty of other acts that should have saved their studio time – and also the ears of suffering listeners.
To be fair, calling a rapper wack is sort of a cheap shot and really depends on personal tastes. However, we’re pretty certain that there is an undeniable truth to the fact that there are some “MCs” who should have chosen another profession.
