Rappers these days all seem to have something that makes them distinguishable from the next artist, but over the years, some have switched up their looks so much that it’s hard to tell that it’s them anymore. A lot of rappers over the years have either lost a lot of weight, gotten surgeries, or had an awful accident that made them nearly unrecognizable to fans. There are some rappers who we’re still questioning if it’s the same person, and some we know are still the rapper we know and love deep down.

Paul Wall used to be one of the Southern Kings of the turn up, and was known for being tatted up, a little chubby, with his famous grills. A couple years back, he came out at the Grammy’s with a huge weight loss, no grills, and a fancy suit on. We could’ve sworn he was a pop star or something at first.
