We were really hoping this list didn’t become an annual ordeal. When the original “9 Rappers Desperately In Need Of A Name Change” went live, our goal was to let these oblivious artists in on the elephant in the room. A year later, nobody listened and now – coincidentally – their names are not only bad, they’re nowhere to be found.
Regardless, as more and more wannabe MCs emerge from the woodwork by the second, the pool of available rap names dries up like the polar ice caps. The result leaves talented artists unmarketable and bad ones looking like buffoons. However, with money to made and swag to be surfed, this new wave of young entrepreneurs with ProTools aspirations and Fruity Loops dreams push on regardless.
Originality, we miss you.
