Ja Rule, MC Hammer Top Complex's "30 Worst Falls-Offs In Rap History"

Complex names Ja Rule and MC Hammer to the top of its "30 Worst Falls-Offs In Rap History" list.

In its nearly forty years of existence, Hip Hop has seen hundreds of artists strike it big on minute, only to watch them fade into insignificance the next. Now, in a recent article, Complex chronicles thirty of the worst career failings in Hip Hop history.

It's the Real's Eric and Jeff Rosenthal joined forces with Complex to toast to the thirty biggest career fall-offs in rap history. The list covers everyone from Charles Hamilton to No Limit; however, it's Ja Rule and MC Hammer who take the top spots on the list.

"In the early 2000s, you couldn't go anywhere without hearing Ja Rule sing-rapping," they write of Ja Rule. "The rapper born Jeffery Atkins, who at one time was spitting alongside Jay-Z and DMX, shifted lanes and just-about single-handledly took Hip Hop pop, thanks to his collaborations with Ashanti, Jennifer Lopez, and Christina Milian. But it honestly wasn't the lightweight fare that took its toll on Ja, it was the emergence of his real-life enemy, 50 Cent."

Of MC Hammer, they say, "Everyone knows this story: MC Hammer danced his way to the top of the charts, made a ton of money and then pissed it all away by attempting to employ half of Oakland while on tour...He became a punchline for 'The Simpsons,' a sob story on 'Behind the Music.' He only became 'a thing' more recently once Twitter suggested that people follow him, for some indiscernible reason."

Check out the full list over at Complex.

    I was never much of a MC Hammer fan but was into his music a bit. I gave up after that "pumps and a bump" stuff came out But I do follow him on twitter because he says some interesting things and is a genuinely nice guy. He even posts useful links from time to time.

    Everybody say 50 killed Ja's career. JA killed Ja's career. He should have kept going even in the midst of a Federal investigation of his label....unless there's more to the store than we know. For all we know, 50 could have initiated the investigation himself and went in on Ja at the same time! lol! Naw....but I'm with everybody else....I don't give Complex the time of day and certainly not this list. Aside from all the pop bull he put out, Ja had some dope records....especially the joint at the end of Last Temptation, "Destiny Outro". Still goes hard!

    How did Boot Camp Click fall off???? I know Complex owns HHDX and all, but seriously? There are legit points on some artists like Charles Hamilton, Ja Rule,but most of the list are just peeps that either broke up and did their thing solo or just ventured into business ventures. Complex takes another L for this one.

  • The Ice Cold Phenom

    The ranking is so inaccurate and obviously required more time and research to establish such a list. For starters, there is no stated criteria as to how artist/groups were selected. Second, there needs to be at least a minimum album standard to even make the list (Charles Hamilton). Third, if artist are still relevant today (Ice Cube..Vanilla Ice...LL) why are they on the list since hip hop was the vehicle that launched their careers in other areas? Fourth, groups like EPMD and ATCQ had great success at the height of their careers and clearly don't need to be on the list. Nothing will last forever so there needs to be some way to measure how successful an artist was in their era. Fifth, there are at least 50 other groups/artist that really should be on this list and are not included.

  • w h o k n o w s

    If this article is accurate (which it isn't) then EVERYBODY WILL ONE DAY FALL OFF.. how did Tribe fall off? How did KRS-One fall off... Raekwon? are you fuckin' serious? If you're a legend in the game you NEVER fell off.. I fall off is when ur ass is wack or u did some dumb shit and can't recover.. legends who are still remembered and gravitated to by new artists as influences is NOT falling off.. dumbass muthafuckaz..

Fuck complex. Cube? Big Daddy Kane? Eazy E(RIP)? Yo wtf is this non sense these niggas wanna get shot up? Fukkin clowns. The biggest fall off in rap history is 50 cent within 5 yrs nigga went from multi platinum to havin his shit constantly pushed back, he has no relevance in music no more, stay focusing on ur other shit snitch nigga, fukkin with them gay niggas.

    Somebody tell these morons there is a difference between breaking up (Tribe, EPMD), dying (Eazy E), Moving on (Cube, LL), being a legend that the kids don't appreciate (Slick Rick, KRS, Kane) and falling off (Ja, X, Charles Hamilton etc.) Raekwon being on this list for any reason is some seriously stupid shit. A website called Complex shouldn't have simple people writing for them.

  • RedX

    50 often gets credited for ending Ja Rule's career, but I sincerely doubt that. For example you cannot really mention one track where 50 was superior. Back Down was good but enough to win a battle? No. What did have a big effect was the Feds clamping down on Murder INC. It's no coincidence that apart from Lloyd which went on to sign with Young Money, no other artist is still impacting the charts. Ja Rule's and Ashanti fell off at the same time Murder INC fell off, and it was not due to 50, but due to the Feds. 50 Cent happenned to be at the right place at the right time, and being an exceptional businessman and a talented rapper backed by Eminem and Dr. Dre, took advantage of the situation and is still milking it to date.

      eminem is actually phenomenal as a rapper. Couple points: -technical skill -ability to convey personal introspection -ability to fuck around and just be entertaining/funny -ability to connect with fans both commercially and underground -ability to freestyle off top -ability to battle rap -ability to sell albums (you're going to say because he's white but my last point should negate that point). - most important point: universal respect from his peers (who are mostly black)-- namely the "good rapper peers" lol: jay-z, nas, kanye, redman, black thought, outsidaz, pharoahe monch, mos def... etc etc etc etc etc... you will never hear a nigga that can *really* rap say that eminem is "over rated" or "can't rap."

  • Jerod> Formely known as "Malone"

    This is an individual whom despite his confrontation with 50 cent and financial pitfalls, had hip-hop in the palm of his fucking hand with hit after hit after hit after hit. We treat him like the biggest piece of dog shit today. My point is simply this. All the rappers who are young and in their prime (and its not to many of them), do you think people are going to uphold them to their reputation 10 years from now? 15 years from now? 20 years from now? He's not the only one we enjoy doing this too. I don't want to name them all because that would simply be too long for this post. If you are an avid hip-hop listener then you already know who they are. When are we going to progress and get past the age barrier. The age of an artist is irrelevant. Jay-z and Kanye West are living proof of this (even though their lyrical and creative prowess has somewhat paled). When is our genre going to establish a system of respect and appreciation for artist who have maintained a somewhat remarkable longevity and have contributed a lot to build the culture. You will go to the rock genre and see young listeners have that respect for guns-n-roses or aerosmith. In our genre you'll have a young fan who listen to the evolved version of what pioneering artist built turn around and call slick rick or krs-one old irrelevant ass bums. Now of course as I will be happening very shortly, there will be some uncultured, illiterate fag who's fathers breast milk is just to good for him to put down or who's genitalia is indistinguishable from that of a common blackhead. He's going to talk about how my post is to long and how I'm trying so hard to be smart and how I took time out of my busy schedule to right my assessment. Something homosexual in nature will probably be mentioned by him about my background and lifestyle the he knows nothing about. I can feel it coming and I disregard it as I will likely be the more superior male than he is. This post is for the people that understand that hip-hop can be better than this. I'm only 24 (old as fuck..eh well not really) and I hate the behaviour of the young people towards people like Mr Rule (whom I'm not a fan of but can still acknowledge his accomplishments). The shit has to end here people or else our genre is going to end up like disco. Sincerely Yours -Former Malone

    Not a good list. I wouldn't say all of these fell off exactly. Artists can't be at the top forever.

  • Assassin221

    Not a great list, not terrible either but some of these don't make sense. People were paying attention to Raekwon all along even through his forgettable albums, plus Cuban Linx II was pretty recent and a huge success, so how is that a fall-off? Tribe never really fell off, they just quit which isn't the same thing. This list also really focuses on commercial success, which is an important but not the only indicator of what somebody's accomplished in hip-hop. Some of these dudes stopped selling but never really lost respect. Oh well, interesting read anyway.

This nigga is the epitome of a fall-off. He had the number one song in the country and had everyone doing that retarded dance. Nigga had a couple more hits, made some dough, then fell off HARD when his third album flopped, only selling 13k the 1st week. Ever since then, this nigga started taking more Ls than Ws.

Remember it was mainstream publications that made ridiclous Hip Hop lists (Vibe did the one that Buddens got heated about & ran his emo-mouth about Method Man & Rolling Stone calling Eminem the King of Hip Hop). It's a form of mind-control, influencing & dictating how you process & view Hip-Hop. Please let's be honest 50 Cent did not end Ja Rule's career. That's the general myth everyone tends to be believe but the fact of the matter is Ja Rule one-trick pony was on a downhill slide & even without 50 Cent...he would've ended up in the same place. 50 Cent has tried the same with Ross but the big difference is Ross continued to put out what's considered good music by many in regards to fantasy flossin' lifestyle music.
