For every rapper, there's a goal, whether it be to get signed to a major label, to get in the booth with their heroes, or to tour the country and the world on a successful record. And when you're on the come-up, it can seem like the gravy train never stops rolling. But regardless of the journey taken or the number of years or songs it takes to really make it as a rapper, the entire journey is a rollercoaster that takes an artist through highs, lows and everything in between. XXL asked 11 rappers, from OGs to up and comers, from mixtape kings to those who invented entire genres, from major label icons to independent hustlers, if they could pinpoint a high point in their career, a moment that they can look back at and say, "That was great." Peaks and valleys. —XXL Staff
