Lil Mo
Mike Shorey

Them two was singing the hooks on just about every hit song in 2001-2002 and didn't parlay that into a real career.

Somebody else is Angie Martinez. She could have left the radio game and became a star.

Marques Houston. This nicca had a lane that was working and just quit music.

And don't get me started on Loon and Mase. :snoop:

Tevin Campbell. Had an amazing top tier voice, the MJ cosign, Quincy Jones cosign, hit a few hits but never fully realized his potential.
Jason Weaver...had that similar type of voice to Tevin Campbell...literally the singing voice of young Simba in the lion king. Never made it.

You sleep blood







It breaks my heart seeing people who used to be on top making hood videos now. It's like, wow breh, you don't have none of the old connections? I'm sure you could be on top again if you called some of your old producer friends, some of your old label contacts :mjcry:

Don't go out like this. This is like if somebody made a spoof of Chingy:mjcry:

:mjcry:

I checked on Charles last year and they was holding that nikka in prison in LA for spazzing on somebody. Man. I was a huge Charles fan. I used to design fan made posters of him. I used to print out fan made album covers for him. My brother clowns me to this day about Charles cause back in the day when I was a huge fan, I had a dream that I was at a Jay Z concert and Hov is performing and then stops in the middle of his set like "yo i got a special guest imma bring out here right now" like he did with Michael Jackson at Summer Jam, only this time it was Charles Hamilton and the crowd went crazy. I was so excited in my dream that I woke up and told my brother.

:mjlol: :mjcry: he makes fun of me about that to this day.

dude is one of the most gifted emcees of the last 20 years and he still ain't release no album

bro has a classic single, a lot of great and memorable guest features, songs and good mixtapes, but not a single album

Dude was signed to Roc-A-Fella and then when Dame and Jay went their separate ways, he stuck with Jay and then fumbled that bag

Even was on Ne-yo's first single, which was the perfect song to show he had range as an artist and could do a joint for the clubs/ladies too

dude fukked up some of his budget he had with Def Jam and he just wasn't as focused as an artist

Really?

Dude had 2 double platinum albums was apart of multiple group platinum albums, had a double platinum album with redman and has entire acting career


Head scratcher to me too.

I'm 40 and he's had a successful career in entertainment for 75% of life. Ice cube and fresh prince are the only two rappers that have had a better entertainment career than him.

Accurate... dude I forgot to mention from my last post. Bonafide star.. and he Latino which would have opened up a whole other world. With Pun being gone (not saying peedi is the kc pun was), he would have really set it off... dude was a star
