At their apex, Roc-a-fella was the Army, the Navy, the Coast Guard and any other force you can think of. Jay Z led the pack, but he wasn’t the only talented artist on the roster that helped make the label a powerhouse in the rap game.
Of course, not everyone would be as heralded as Hova, though. So we listed the top 22 artists on the Roc-a-fella label, in order. Let’s start with…
No shots. Someone had to be last.
21. Diamonds In Da Ruff
Can’t even find a good picture of these cats, but “The Doe” off Streets Is Watching was the truth.
20. Oschino & Omillio Sparks
Some decent hooks and surely solid weed carrying and muscle duties.
19. Nicole Wray
Hey, this knocked.
18. Neef Buck
Peep some of his current material. It’s solid.
17. Teairra Marie
Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood. That is all.
These light skinned silky headed cats were ahead of their time.
15. Aztek Escobar
Last seen on FOX’s The Strain.
Admit it, your forgot N.O.R.E. was even on the Roc.
13. DJ. Clue
DJ Clue made a killing with those legal mixtapes.
At least we got the “U Don’t Know (Remix)” out of the deal.
11. Peedi Crakk
We all thought Crakk had next.
