Sometimes artists go through a dry spell. In rap in particular, hotness just doesn’t last forever. I mean, wouldn’t LL Cool J still be a hot commodity commercially if that were the case (no shade LL, no shade)? Here, I have identified five big-time rappers who need good things to happen for them in the near-future/future. One or two names may be surprising, but there is a rationale for all five. Hear a bro out!
