    We've all seen 'em. The guys who blow up, have one or two big hits, then go back into the depths of obscurity. But popularity ain't everything, and while some one-hit wonders fizzle out for a reason, some have pretty solid catalogues of music if you look beyond their short term success.

    Which ones can y'all think of? All genres included

    I find it interesting how both Mims and Chamillionaire started chasing after tech money after their music careers went downhill.

    Can't knock the hustle.

    One hit wonders? Dolla comes to mind, but he was killed soon after blowing up.

    YC had Racks. Desiigner with Panda.

    Some of you guys naming rappers with multiple hits? lol but they did have short careers.

    Panda was mid but Desiigner has some good s---. He was on some leaks from Yandhi and his singing was f---ing amazing. I think if he had gone a more melodic route he could still be big right now.

    Paul Wall was such a huge artist... DeRtY JAsON made him the first non-Aftermath/shady artist to have his own section on rapbasement... based 100% on merit... no other reason at all. None.
