    man this thread is hilarious.


    i remember when people thought Game was going to be the SAVIOR of the West Coast and the future. i always hated that niggas music. ALWAYS.


    i was definitely on the Papoose hype train. Charades? Chess? Alphabetical Slaughter? Dude had concept records for DAYS in a time where snap music was the wave. He was hip hops only hope for a short period of time. Then he dropped 299239239 mixtapes.


    and @_Lefty is completely dead on about Lupe & Saigon. Greatest Story Never Told is an AMAZING project. It just came out wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy after people cared. Most moved on.

    Kdot has a certified classic in gkmc so he has actually lives up to his hype but I agree he has been lackluster since the control vs. Tpab is forgetable. Still listen to section 80 and gkmc on road trips to this day.

    Cassidy - right around the time Jay-Z retired and NY didn't have many to take his place, niggas was saying Cassidy was the future and that on the mic no one could stop him. Welp that came to an end when he got hemmed up. His debut album even went gold.


    Drake - when he first came out with So Far Gone (to this day I still haven't heard the album in full), upon the release of TML niggas was tryna say his coming was that of a young 50 Cent circa 2003 SMMFH. I never thought he woulda been around this long. I remember there were threads and polls with niggas arguing going back and forth of what Drake would sell. Now Drake is the most hated on next to Jay-Z, Kanye West, 50 Cent on the IC.



    Cosign on Saigon - Niggas were repping it like it was going to save NY,


    Lil Wayne - Around 2008/2009 he could do no wrong he was killing the mixtapes had threads in his honour, etc. Soon as he sold a mil in the first week and dropped A Millie it was as if the IC got turned upside down.


    To Drake's defense, he is one of the hottest rappers out and has been for the past 5 years. Not saying I like him, but he does have a strong fan base.

    I bought his Take Care album and I wasn't feeling it at all. But somebody out there likes him.

    Its not like he flopped like Papoose or Saigon.

    I remember when Jin had next. He won on Freestyle Fridays for a few weeks in a row and then he had a song produced by Kanye West, I actually bought the 12" single. Then you never really heard from him again.

    I also bought a record by Bump J. Not sure who he is/was but it was also produced by Kanye West. Then I heard he went to prison.

    50 earned and deserved the hype, if you was around during 50 early mixtape shit, then you would know his consistency alone lived up to the hype, then he followed that whole mixtape reign with a great album that sold 10 million copies or some shit. There is noway someone in rap maintains that kind of success dude was destined to come back down to earth. Far as kendrick his album was good but NOBODY put out a better album then j.cole this year, that "st.tropez" song was dumb as fuck but whatever.

    If 50 released the exact same album (GRODT) with the exact same music, but it didn't have Eminem or Dre's name attached to it, it would have gone platinum. But I doubt it would have gone multiplat. And It wouldn't have gone 7X plat.

    I agree with the kdot talk he dropped that verse and everybody thought he was that dude that was gonna hold that crown and be unfuckable with on the mic.

    I can't believe I'm saying this because I don't listen to anything big Sean but right now whenever control comes on his verse is all I wanna hear. Kendricks verse didn't age well to me or maybe because I heard it 1 million times already plus the hype
