Come on Son! The 10 Worst Hip Hop Name/Personality Changes
WORDS BY PETITE ANGLAISE
Mind you this list is extremely bias and more or less useless, but it does showcase some very popular artist in the hip hop community that changes they way we think, what we wear, and how other perceive this genre.

When perusing your Facebook homepage on a Monday, it’s incredible how many people seem hellbent on hating the beginning of their week. I never understood that…it’s Monday! A whole new week’s worth of possibilities!

Enjoy your week, Closeteers.
Fast backward in time
