    Jay Electronica
    -We're all familiar with the story.nikka came out of nowhere with classic heat and had us all waiting for him to take the crown as the savior of hip hop during a time when snap and ringtone rap had nikkas wanting to commit suicide.....this planet of the apes faced ass nikka got signed,married a rothchild and throws a twitter tantrum every 6 months.

    Saigon and Papoose-Both were looking like the future of NY.Saigon had a Gangsta Grillz when those shyt's really mattered and was even gettin' a push on Entourage. Even though it may sound funny now but Papoose was spittin' fire ?(those early law library tracks :ahh:)Both had highly anticipated albums that dropped a decade too late.

    Charles Hamilton-Dude was buzzing heavy in the late 2000's.Was droppin' quality mixtapes every month it seemed and looked like he was prime to have a breakout.Dude dropped Brooklyn Girls,got hit with a lead right from a thot and disappeared.


    Blu- Dropped one of the most overrated albums of all time in Below the Heavens and instantly gained a huge underground following.Followed it up with decent mixtapes liek Johnson and Jonson but ultimately fizzled out.

    The late 2000's backpack hipster nikka movement- While ringtone and snap was dominating the radio on rapblogs such as 2dopeboyz and Nahright there was a heavy push of backpack indie hipster rap.Acts such as The Cool Kids,U-N-I,PAC-DIV,Mickey Factz and The Pack were looking like they would have huge careers...I mean that nikka Mickey Factz had a Honda Commercial :heh:

    Hilariously the only two nikkas to have decent careers out of that late 2000's group were Theophilus London and Lil B :mindblown:


    Honorable mention:
    Jody Breeze,JR Writer and Asher Roth,

    For me Juelz Santana followed by Lil Wayne.

    Juelz was suppose to be the next big thing. Bruh literally had everything set up for him to dominate for a couple years and nikka just fell of the face of the earth.

    And ever since Wayne got out of jail he's been ass gas. He's had some nice features, but his projects have been garbage.

    And I though Arab was up next? :ohhh:

    I can add Juelz because that's a legit disappointment.Dude could've been huge.Wayne i can't say he's a disappointment because son was the biggest rapper in the world at one point

    I dont know about of all time. If you're talking about in recent years tho i'd say Jay Electronica & maybe also Black Hippy/TDE.

    Dropped in to say the same. The buzz ahead of his debut was insane.

    Then ... nothing.
