Kendrick Lamar did the unthinkable when he came through, crushed the buildings and crowned himself King of NY on Big Sean’s “Control” buzz single. Top 5 Hip-Hop moment of the past few years? Absolutely, that has everyone anticipating responses from Hip-Hop’s elite and praying that struggle rappers stay quiet. Here are ten struggle rappers who should sit this one out. Take a look.
French Montana He raps like he ate construction paper and glue sammiches growing up but was hyped as "the one" who would SAVE NY Hip-Hop. Nope.
Papoose We’re sure everyone’s favorite rapping gecko will respond (and we’ll laugh) mainly because he has every NY borough tatted on his knuckles and bleeds NY. SMH.
Soulja Boy BET recently celebrated his birth as a shining moment in Black history but it’s clear that he’s the ink-scribbled face of auto-tuned struggle rap.
Hurricane Chris He probably should focus on proving that he and Da Brat aren't the same person and chill with the raps.
Lil’ Mama We know the handsome attention fiend would die for NY because she risked her life (and career) scampering onstage to photobomb a classic "NY moment."
Dylan This was a fake tweet (or deleted) but nobody wants to hear anything music-related from any of the 5 Dylans in 2013.
Red Café He’s been signed to Bad Boy for most of our lifetime and STILL hasn’t dropped a debut album and probably never will.
Tyga There was a time when he was actually decent (lyrically) before he started sipping from Lil' Wayne's cup and spewing nothing but radio-friendly struggle.
