Remember when Cory Gunz bodied Lil Wayne on “A Milli” and “6 Foot 7”? Sadly, Cory never capitalized on his strong efforts and his 2009 XXL Freshmen appearance. He watched his potential dwindle because of numerous crimes he was allegedly involved in.

Pill was once considered a very solid pick-up for Rick Ross’ Maybach roster because of his grit and voracious flow. Sadly, he couldn’t shine alongside Wale and Meek Mill and was later dropped. He hasn’t dropped any music since last mixtape The Epidemic in 2012.

OJ The Juiceman gained a lot of steam in 2010 when he was dubbed the next big thing to blow. Under the tutelage of Gucci Mane, we thought he had a chance. Then, he disappeared as well.
