I know everybody want to be Jordan (Jay-Z, KRS, Rakim etc..) but the Scottie Pippen’s of rap have stayed in their lane, kept their mouths shut, and ate well over the years. Who are the Scottie Pippen’s of Hip Hop? Who are the ones you like and respect? We know that some individuals ego's killed relationships but other guys saw an opportunity and ran with it.
Here are a few that come to mind:
1. Memphis Bleek: Rode Jigga to championships, got 2 Gold records, ate well off tours, killed intro to Vol.2 & currently living a good life. 2. LLoyd Banks: Didn’t fall victim like Young Buck and Game (Game eats..I know) Double Platinum LP and eats well on tour and during G-Unit’s reign he made a good life for himself. 3. Meek Millz: Was ready when Ross called on him. He stayed loyal to Ross and never tried to be Jordan. 4. Spliff Starr rode Busta forever & ate on tour for years.
5. Sheek Louch from The Lox - Found his lane and never appeared to be envious of the attention Jadakiss and Styles P received.
...those are just some that come to mind
