Complex Magazine has released another of their infamous lists this time chronicling the the 50 Biggest Hip Hop Fails of All Time, with many of your favorite rappers making the list for their ability to rise and fall into scandal and in out of success.
Just to a few highlights out of Complex’s list:
25. Yung Berg’s Collective Life Experience
After surviving at least two Transformer chain-snatchings, a drunken (and televised!) bicycle accident, and a fight on the wrong side of Maino’s hand, Yung Berg is still…Yung Berg. One has to wonder why Yung Berg bothers getting up every morning if he’s going to get beaten up every afternoon.
10. Charles Hamilton Gets Punched In The Face By A Girl
Charles Hamilton had only just begun his fall from grace when he and his manager Briana Latrise were spotted walking down an L.A. street. In the middle of a playful on-camera freestyle battle, Charles insults her, revealing that she’d had an abortion by him. Briana tries to shove his words back into his mouth—literally—with her fist. The bruise may be gone, but he may never recover.
1. William Roberts Rick Ross Becomes Officer Ricky
With outsized claims of “I know Noriega, the real Noriega,” one could safely assume that Rick Ross’ boasts about being a criminal kingpin were as exaggerated as his waistline. But the truth was more hilariously ironic than anyone expected. When photos of a younger Ricky—complete with badge, uniform, and smile—mysteriously leaked to the Internet, it offered a glimpse into the past, the one that Ross had actually lived for three years while working as an officer for the Department of Corrections in the early ’90s. He tried to deny it for almost an entire year, not owning up to his past until a 2009 XXL cover story, but Officer Ricky should know how evidence works.

(AllHipHop News) A new book being published claims that Death Row Records was actually a front for the FBI in an attempt to assault and end black activism.
The new book The FBI War on Tupac Shakur and Black Leaders: U.S. Intelligence’s Murderous Targeting of Tupac, MLK, Malcolm, The Panthers, Hendrix, Marley, Rappers & Linked Ethnic Leftists.
According to the book’s author, Baltimore area native and Columbia University graduate John Potash, he extensively researched the book, which claims to show the FBI’s consistent pattern of undermining black activism.
The book claims that Shakur was deliberately targeted by the government, like other black leaders, due to his growing influence in the African-American community, utilizing Hip-Hop music.
“What I think it was was that he had become the most influential black man in the black community in the country,” Potash told The Baltimore City Paper. “The CIA and U.S. intelligence, what they have to do is win the hearts and minds of the people. They don’t want to control us by force, they want us to control ourselves by having us believe in a certain way–that we don’t need national health care, for example. And here, Tupacwas threatening to win over the hearts and minds of people, he was able to counter so much of the propaganda in the black community.”
The FBI War on Tupac Shakur took ten years to research, utilizing court testimony, FBI documents and a number of previously unseen documents provided by The Black Panthers to Potash.
As for Death Row, Potash claims that the government was definitely involved in the record label’s operations, in a continued attempt to harass Shakur and derail his career.
“I believe that Death Row Records, which included dozens and dozens of police officers at all levels, according to a high-level police officer that investigated them, was a front company and was trying to continue penal coercion and mess up [Tupac Shakur's] head,” Potash said.
A research documentary also accompanies the self-published book.
