3. Faith Evans
Show: R&B Divas
Aired: August 2012- present
Outcome: Faith used to have hits! “Soon as I get home/I’ll make it up to you/Baby I’ll do what I got to do.” That jam still goes. Even after slowing down following the murder of her husband Biggie (RIP) she had a comeback with 2005’s The First Lady. Now you’re more likely to catch her on the tube alongside six other
struggling R&B singers rather than hear a new joint on the radio.
Show: Love and Hip Hop Atlanta
Aired: June 2012- present
Outcome: Prince of the south he’s never been (sorry, but not sorry Momma Dee), but Scrappy’s “No Problem” banged way back when. His now infamous “I want to put them paws on him” spoofs are an online hit. Whether or not anyone’s checking for a “Paws On Him” single is yet to be determined. Get back to us on that one.
5. Joe Budden
Show: Love and Hip Hop 3
Aired: March 2011 – present
Outcome: Joey’s always been a hell of a rapper. That was never arguable. His ability to sell actual records is up for discussion. Joe Budden has been around since this writer was in college eons ago, but for some reason his controversy always outshines his actual talent. Since the show Joe’s reemerged on the music scene with Slaughterhouse, which peaked at No. 2 on the Billboard 200. There is always hope when you’re signed to Eminem’s Shady Records.
