Rappers aren’t exactly known for rapping about birds, bees and idyllic fields of beautiful flowers. Their content is often more risqué and deals with the harsh realities of inner-city street life: drugs, guns, violence and more.

There are some rappers here that you would expect to see, and there are others that might surprise you. So without further ado, please proceed to the list below.

This was a certainly a situation in which their reputation preceded them and prevented them from earning a nice check for their rapping craft.
