In hip hop, it’s no different, as there have been plenty of rappers and hip hop stars who have suffered some major meltdowns when they’ve come to a breaking point. Most recently, both Kanye West and Rihanna were reported to have had meltdowns on separate occasions within the same week. However, they aren’t the only ones.
