I guess you can call her one of history's worst artists. If she didn't have a career as a rapper Hip Hop would still be alive.

Nobody's ever gonna remember this chick. Her fame and publicity is gonna die off just Bubba Sparxxx's did.
Seriously. Stay the hell away from her albums. If you see her albums in the store, don't buy them. Don't even touch them. Just run away from them if you ever see them. Trust me.

Oh, come on people. I know he can be rude sometimes but he's not always like that. He can be nice sometimes. His music's actually pretty good. If you look past his bad moments, you'll see something positive in him.

Why's Kanye on here? He's actually a true music artist unlike any of these people on this list.

I know he can be a jerk sometimes but his music's actually really good. Just give him a chance.

Why's he on here?
