Inspired by the Obie Trice video I just saw...You know how a rapper might have a spark in the beginning, but then it just falls apart, and they disappear?...What happened to those niggas?...What should they have done differently?...Lol...

    I fucks with Obie. Dude got a platinum album (like that means anything) but most importantly cuz is NICE. Seems like if you can actually rap Interscope can only rock with you for so long. His new album aint all that though, its merely ight.

    Always thought FIeld Mob was on the cusp of blowing up. Then they signed to DTP, and I was like "Yep, that's a wrap..."

    Ray Cash is cool too. I like dude, his problem is he from Ohio. Midwest rappers are in the position Southern rappers used to be in. A few artists slide through but for the most part niggas aint really listening for Midwest talent, damn shame because Cash is dope. Southern rappers used to have to fight hard to get heard but that struggle is almost solely a Midwest thing now. No major labels in Chicago, Cleveland or Detroit so we fucked lol

    I can't speak for other places but here in Detroit there's a few, there was a couple like Rock Bottom Entertainment (battle rapper Calicoe used to be down with them) I think they tanked though. Dirty Glove Entertainment was popping here a few years ago but since their main artist (Blade Icewood) got smoked they been pretty much dead.

    So there are some that come and go but none seem to stick around.

    Dirty Glove was pretty big though, they had joints with Birdman, Freeway, and a few other major cats. Their producer K.I.D.D. produced most of B.G.'s album Livin' Legend (he was living here in Detroit at the time), Short Dawg (of YMCMB) was signed there for awhile too. They had a lot of the hoods jumping making some local hits and classics but their pretty much done today, this was 5-6 years ago. Rock Bottom created some local hits and classics too but they are completely off the map.

    thats good shit, me personally, i would have thought that with the musical heritage of Detroit plus the quality of Detroit artists that there would be some big independent labels. i think we are starting to see a trend toward an emphasis of independent labels in hip hop. Look at the success of TDE, Rostrum etc

    You'd think so. Problem is none of these cats diversify. Most of the labels have one signature artist, maybe two, and once that artist is done, their done.

    Detroit is one of those places with more chiefs than indians and everybody wanna be a boss even with no business sense. A lot of these are street cats who had enough money to start a label and signed his homeboys that's pretty much it.

    If we could get a solid independent scene we would be popping but we need a (few) transcendent artist(s) and a label with business sense. Everybody talks a lot about being the "new Motown" but there aint no new Barry Gordys.

    man i used to bump the shit out that album. As far as some of the other people mentioned i'll just comment:

    Vado- Always was trash to me, at best he was average and he doesn't stand out

    Rich Boy- Hot for a minute but he's dependent on production. I can't see him carrying an album by himself.
