People make mistakes. That’s alright. But when you are a Hip Hop artist in the public eye, no one will ever forget them. Thank Google for that. Here are five of the worst decisions ever made in hip hop.
1. FMF-1 Driving Shoe
Funkmaster Flex and Lugz (yeah, Lugz) got together to make the most unholy union in Hip Hop shoe endorsement history. The “FMF-1 Driving Shoe.” A shoe that was to be worn, you guessed it, as you drove. What do you with it when you step out the truck? Put your Timbs back on before someone clowns you for wearing Lugz.
2. 50 Cent and Soulja Boy XXL Cover
Just why is 50 wearing a t-shirt across his face as he cuffs a half naked boy? Who thought this was cool, gangster, hard, or marketable? I wonder how Raz-B feels about this.
3. Birdman Star Tattoos
Male pattern baldness is not that big of a deal. It is common and women will call you after the second date if you aren’t a jerk. There are plenty of normal ways of dealing with losing your hair, this just is not one of them.
4. Nick Cannon’s Request to Box Eminem
Mariah Carey’s baby daddy found himself in between the back and forth of her and Eminem. Being the good guy that he is, he challenges Em to a boxing match to end it all. It’s alright that he is defending his wife but don’t embarrass her in the process, she’s already married to you, isn’t that enough suffering?
5. Shady Limited
Speaking of Eminem, back in the early 2000s, Eminem released his own brand of clothing, Shady LTD. It might have been a huge success if Eminem even bothered to endorse it himself. In interviews, he would wear the same damn sweat suit. Even though Shady LTD had a short run, it did stay in Kohl’s for a really long time.
