    Thread title tricky but here's an example


    saw this s--- when I was a sophomore, at the time he had just dropped Backwords I believe. Really thought he was gonna be killing it with the music/vids.



    once he dropped this I was full on the hype train, didnt last once these hit


    he had some trash a--- remix's too smfh. Nowdays he still doing that almost wanna be pop s--- like WILL.

    B.o.B's third album maybe.

    First was alright but commercially edged, second even more so... and nothing artistically amazing or like I expected from him... then he just got worse.

    I always secretly thought he might suddenly come back as this amazing songwriter again but he's just gotten worse, and worse, especially post flat-Earth Bob.

    Understandable confusion. But no, when "Ye", the album dropped.

    Yeah Underground Luxury vs TAOBR and Strage Clouds was utter, utter a---. Same could be said for Lupe around the same time as well.

    at least Lupe bounced back

    real ones know his first two and his No Genre tape all classic, E.P.I.C is such an overlooked tape
