    I made a thread about how garbage Show Me What You Got was, and I stand by it. One of the worst rap singles ever, especially based on the hype surrounding it.

    In the middle of a hot DJ set, that record will move some asses in the club but everything about it was just lazy.

    This is when I knew it was over for Reggie. He went platinum right before this album, and dude was never the same again. After Muddy Waters, things kinda started going downhill. He went from being a hardcore MC to more of a campy comedian rapper. From '92-'96, you could argue that he was easily Top 5 for that era, but after that the decline was mad swift.

    Rasassination was a big drop off for Ras.
    That was hyped record too and it just flopped. Even with the leftover dre feature. Maybe that was foreshadowing it's doom.

    Yeah. He is still my #2, but the fall off from Lethal Injection to War and Peace was uprising. It's clear music had taken a back seat to movies by that time.

    I still fukk with the energy of Westside Connection, but it's clear he wasn't the same M.C.

    I posted a number of times in here and I can’t believe no one mentioned Boosie. He only has the second worst post-prison fall off (Shunn is easily #1). His voice was always an acquired taste anyway, but old Boosie was unique sounding, clever, fun, and full of good content. Current Boosie is 100% content and damn near nothing else. His flow sounds like he’s aged 30 years since 2009. A lot of his beats just don’t hit either. He’s released multiple projects since he’s been out of prison and most of them are just flat out bad. Prison was the worst thing to happen to him from a music standpoint. Ideally he would’ve never got caught up in the first place, but I wish he had his current music output from 2009 and back.

    Hov - Kingdom Come. Terrible fukking album. It was so bad he had to go back to the studio and drop the almost classic American Gangster a year later. He's had bright spots since (444) but this paved the way for dog shyt albums like TB3 and MCHG.

    Kanye - Yeezus. First album where the craft didn't show and was more of a moment and we've gotten quickly made albums since.

    Nas - I am. From matic to IWW to this shyt was an insult. First showing of dog shyt production.

    Lupe - Lasers. Wasalu was my top 1 guy but this turd made him mortal. Has still made good albums but FL and Cool back to back was god tier.

    50 cent - Massacre. Did the exact thing he was battling against.
