10 Artists Who’ll Never Come Back

The recent rally behind Lauryn Hill after her East Coast Rock The Bells stop will soon die down once fans remember the harsh truth — we lost Lauryn long years ago. Miseducation… Lauryn dropped out and even though she may make reappearances on stage & record, she will never be our Lauryn. She was the songbird & rapstress who took us to a place where a femcee could dominate, combining substance with skills unrivaled to capture the attention of all.

But she’s not the only luminary who’ll never return to the limelight’s full focus. She, Dr. Dre and Rakim could easily form the holy trinity of wasted talent. The producer, rapper & singer who all have classics under their belts, but will never return to prominence. They are not alone though and here are a few artists who will never reclaim the spotlight, no matter how they may try.
