Relevancy Reloaded: 10 Greatest Music Career Reboots

- By Bossip Staff Categories: Multi, New, News
Ri For every million here today-gone later today artists, is one who actually achieved the impossible: Career reinvention in our microwave society. In life, there’s no reset button or cheat code unless you’re one of these ten artists who found both. Anything is possible and these artists proved it. Take a look.
Tity_Boi_Down_South_Bangers_special_Edition 2 Chainz - The Grammy-nominated artist formerly known as Tity Boi rose from irrelevancy to become Rap Jesus-Quantavious. What he accomplished with a name change and swag upgrade will be studied long after he’s buried inside a Gucci store.
1181684577_kovrik Rihanna - RiRi was a pure chastity belt-wearing girl next door during the “Music of the Sun”-era. She was safe, fully-clothed and Chuck E. Cheese-friendly before Def Jam activated her inner-hoodrat.
Goodie-Mob-Dirty-South-Classics Cee-Lo - The fun-sized Pop star wasn’t supposed to be this famous after the militant Goodie Mob years when he was Rap’s angry Black man gnome.
Taylor Taylor Swift - The platinum-selling, Grammy-winning starlet went from ‘0 results found’ to instant Pop stardom in a moment that altered the universe and it’s all Yeezy’s fault.
BET Black Eyed Peas - They were originally De La Soul 2.0, but cornier and less appealing, before adding Fergie and morphing into Ace of Base + Village People.
Ricky Rick Ross - Before the iconic beard and obsession with flaunting his ashy man-boobs in public, Ricky was the ultimate struggle rapper who you’ll see rocking an uncomfortably smedium Lakers jersey in the Trina “Told Ya’ll” video.
Three6 Juicy J - At 37, he’s beloved by an entire generation that never heard Three 6 Mafia records on the radio. Too ratchet for most, Juicy J embodies the YOLO movement.
flo_mini_explicit Flo-Rida - 47-year-old didn’t always make music for 12-year-old white girls with Twilight Trapper Keepers but you’d never know based on his glittery singles.
album-money-is-still-a-major-issue Pitbull - No rapper made a greater leap, creatively and musically, than Pitbull who is now an international Pop star—Spanish Elvis.
51oSBuMPmcL Pink - She was an edgy white R&B gimmick who later evolved into everything we thought Christina Aguilera would be, but isn’t. Poor Xtina.
