Top 10 Good Rappers With Disappointing Solo CareersDaWyteNight This is a list for rappers (many who started out in a group) who despite being skilled, haven't had a very consistent solo career or haven't been able to put out a classic in their career. This does not include groups, so Run the Jewels does not count here, I am only referring to Killer Mike in his solo career.
The Top Ten
Killer Mike is great in RTJ, but throughout his solo career he has been very inconsistent and he has even dumbed his raps down and collaborated with the likes of Gucci Mane. - DaWyteNight
Gimme a break..RAI ISN'T MUSIC!
I liked his early songs but I can understand not liking them as they are more pop rap and I guess there was a good reason he faded fast? - Powell
"You should've been one of the greats, now you just sound like everyone else" - DaWyteNight
Earth be like "Flat Noise"
Another OG from the south, originally of UGK, even though he was the far superior rapper in the group when he went solo he was never able to create a great album, and all of his albums have way too many features on them. - DaWyteNight
He was great in The Lox, but his solo material is more than questionable. - DaWyteNight
A rapper with bars and punchlines that sadly don't translate into great music. - DaWyteNight
The Andre 3000 of Goodie Mob - DaWyteNight
He doesn't even have a solo career! Sad.
One of the main reasons why I can't consider Andre 3000 the goat is because he has never released an actual solo rap album, and he has had so many chances throughout the years. - DaWyteNight
Another great rapper who has lyricism and flow but who hasn't had the greatest discography. - DaWyteNight
The other half of Outkast, he was good along side Andre 3000 but when solo it feels like something is missing and he is not able to hold down an entire album by himself. "Boomiverse" is an example of how bad he has fallen off and how much he really did need Andre. - DaWyteNight
Even with a flow like his, I am not able to listen to an entire Tech album because most of his albums are too inconsistent. He has a few good albums from back in the day, but no classics, and he has fallen off over the years and now days releases way too many albums. - DaWyteNight
Don't agree, tech N9ne was been making consistent albums since his 3rd album - germshep24
Hopsin is great and lyrical, but his best material are his Ill Minds and aren't always on his albums. He isn't a very good album maker, as in his albums usually don't flow together nicely and seem kinda all over the place. He's still a great rapper though. - DaWyteNight
sorry... - RylinB
He was great with Talib in Black Star, but he just can't hold my attention for an entire album by himself. - DaWyteNight
He never should've signed with Grand Hustle. - DaWyteNight
What? Below the Heavens - BobbyBiracial
First three albums were great, but after Pun died he just fell apart and sold out. - DaWyteNight
Better discography than Mos Def though - DaWyteNight
