This is the chick who collaborated with Nicki Minaj and M.I.A.

Definitely, her latest songs are so average. She needs to go back to her old stuff.

22Snoop DoggCordozar Calvin Broadus, Jr., known professionally as Snoop Dogg, is an American rapper and actor from Long Beach, California.

He promoted Wiz Khalifa (and apparently, Snoop likes anyone who smokes weed). And when you keep getting promoted by Snoop, you're gonna be mainstream forever. But I haven't heard from Wiz Khalifa since so I'm glad he's gone. No more. We don't need anymore whack rappers killing up the genre.

He promoted Wiz Khalifa. And since we live in a generation where Hip hop is dying, anybody would listen to Wiz Khalifa just because they're too ignorant to know that all he talks about is smoking weed and drugs. They'll listen to anything you give them. They're that stupid.

Snoop, you are one of the greatest rappers of all time. Why did you rap with Big Time Rush? Did your kids tell you to do it? We're they like "daddy that's one of our favorite bands. Can you go rap with them? " Just why?

Snoop Dogg, I have lost all faith in you.

25NasNasir bin Olu Dara Jones, better known by his stage name Nas, is an American rapper. His album, Illmatic, is considered to be one of the best rap albums of all time . He is also considered to be one of the best rappers of all time.

From it was written to nastradomous he was a sellout. Fortunatly he made a big time comeback with stillmatic and the rest is history.

He soldout which didn't work too well. Then tried to un-sellout but it's too late. Now I just him on Hennessey ads

Illmatic is amazing, everyone knows that ❤️. It was written was cool, Nostradamus sucked and now he's good again.

29Maroon 5Maroon 5 is an American pop rock band that originated in Los Angeles, California. Before the current group was established, the original four members, Adam Levine, Jesse Carmichael Mickey Madden and Ryan Dusick, formed a band known as Kara's Flowers in 1994, while they were still in high school.

I liked them when everything wasn't just the Adam Levine show. The other band members are covered with dubstep electronic rubbish now.

How does a band go from Funk Rock and Alternative to bubblegum wuss music?

People only say this because M5 is great the don't want to admit it - TopTenListmaker

How do you go from My Name is, which sounds like he's pinching his nose and on drugs, to pop crap love songs like Love the Way You Lie?!

Sold out big time. Artists like Lil Wayne and Rihanna should never, EVER touch Eminem.

It called adapting. Yeah Lil Wayne n rihanna are plain lucky even to be in the same album with Eminem. How can an artist be a sellout who has one of the largest fanbase in the planet. Don't get jealous nitwit.

Don't call him a sell out! He is not. Actually, he's gotten better and better.
