The Biggest Fails in Hip Hop
The Biggest Fails in Hip Hop
Hip Hop is regarded as one of the most popular music genres of all time, and has attracted a following of billions of people over the last few decades. From the street level artists who play for change to the super-famous musicians that make more than the rest of the world combined, it’s a genre that has produced some of the coolest musicians of our time.
But not everyone is safe from failure, and although it happens to everyone, it’s a thousand times worse when you’re rich and famous and everyone’s watching. These are mortifying situations that made it to the internet, and will always be associated with a musician’s name no matter how popular they become – and sometimes it feels like there needs to be betting sites so people can wager who will fail next.
