Saigon- dude was lyrical yet could make great songs, had that recurring role on Entourage, was a dope live performer, but Atlantic put his ass on the shelf and it fukked up all of his buzz and he couldn’t recover. Had GSNT dropped in 05 when it was supposed to be really could have been a superstar.

Quan- Dude had the Nas co-sign and one of the best songs on Streets Disciple, which was a single and video. Had some great features, signed what seemed like a great deal and had a nice buzz. Then he fukked up and got arrested on some bullshyt and it seemed like overnight he was gone. He could’ve been Drake before Drake and he actually WROTE his own lyrics.

OutKast are legends and hip hop royalty but when this shyt dropped the cacs were on 3000 hard because he made amazing music and he had that unique personality. He got Weird and shrunk from the spotlight on some hermit shyt but he could have ran entertainment:ehh:

Dude had it in the 80's. He even crossed over, but them drugs :francis:. Their pops was a demon.
Motown is part of the blame too. His first albums material wasn't hitting like that and they didn't promote bro like they should've. According to El. He didn't start messing with drugs until the late 80s when he got prescribed some pain killers by his dentist he says that's what started it for him.

Had he came out a few years earlier he would’ve blew up. He came in 06 when NYC rappers weren’t getting no burn.
