Big Sean’s Hall Of Fame has not lived up to his grand expectations…the kind you have when you name your sophomore album Hall Of Fame, that is. But he is not without talent and some cleverness to boot so he’s giving fans and other viewers a chance to get to know him better (since it doesn’t appear that they’re buying anything he’s selling). He’s but a few Nicki Minaj and Kanye West features away from another hit and then — BAM! — famous again. Hang in there, Sean.
The year’s not even over and Drake is at #11 on this list, with $10.5M banked already. King Kendrick ain’t far off his heels with $9M in total. 50 Cent has also tumbled way down this list as compared to a few years ago. It looks like the young guns are taking their official place and not just some “Saved-By-The-Bell-The-New-Class” knockoffs either. Read the full list after the jump. Hat tip to TSS.
in case you consume rap in music form, or have things like a job or an education, you may have missed the EPIC TWITTER RANT gucci mane used to light up the night skies. it was a phenomenal display of poetry. a comma-heavy and error-prone testimony. a cry for help. a laugh — out loud. no one knows what caused the designer-named rapper (street alias ‘guwop’) to go in on his peers, but something seemed amiss from the start. rather than parse the details, we boiled this down to its bone and gristle for the uninformed. enjoy!
