9 Disgruntled Rapper Fallouts – Who’s Better Off as a Solo Artist?

In 2007, a video surfaced of J Hood dragging his D-Block chain on the ground and talking greasy about Styles, Sheek, and Jada. As a result, the trio kicked the young’n out of crew. The following year, Hood apologized, issuing a statement saying, “I will eternally be appreciative to The L.O.X. for giving me an opportunity to be heard period point blank but I just couldn’t keep living with the fact of knowing I’m representing something false, on top of not even being compensated well for it.”

After the Fact: J Hood has released some projects in the time since his departure from D-Block, but nothing that has gained him the recognition that he got when he was riding with The L.O.X.

The Wu member wasn’t shy about voicing his problems with the group and, specifically, RZA. He made claims that Wu didn’t want him to come out as a solo artist and as a result held him up. He also griped about a lack of creative control when it came to beats. He also sued Wu Music in 2008, alleging that they owed him $170,000.

After the Fact: Although U-God was on the last Wu-Tang album, 8 Diagrams, he didn’t appear on Raekwon’s 2009 Only Built 4 Cuban Linx…Pt. II.
