Unread post by fo-tay » September 24th, 2003, 6:20 am

The subject tells it all.

I want everyones opinions on this topic. Who are them artists that attempted to pimp the game and got pimped in the end?

Who got that "One Hit Wonder"???

I can help kick it off:

Lil Troy - Wanna be a baller - What ever happened to this cat??
Kirk Franklin and the All Stars....lol

95% of the videos on MTV is the "one hit wonders" u r talkin about...a lotta young rappers make a video, get sum publicity, sell sum CDs and fall off like its nuthin...most of these cats dont have a real fanbase and the only times peeps listen to em is when the vid is on TV or at the club or sumptin...look at lil romeo lmao haha master p is puttin millions in this kid that has no talent whatsoever and will never ever be a well known and respected rapper...some cats just got 2 much money....

As much as i hate them wankstas, Chingy had more hits to come out of his 1st cd like "HOLIDAE INN" "ONE CALL AWAY" "JACKPOT" and that "BALLA BABY" and "KEEP CLUBBIN"

Then J-Kwon did that "PLAYERS BALL"
