Whether it’s because they’re rich enough to not care what people think or because they are just so badass that the normal lines of behavior don’t exist for them, no matter the reason the fact is some of the biggest names in hip-hop just don’t give a fuck. It’s true that guys like Eminem, ODB, and Public Enemy probably belong on this list but the artists we’ve singled out don’t mind being themselves in public with a camera on them. That’s really what makes these guys the 7 rappers who just don’t give a fuck. 7. DMX Drops The F Bomb in Court
You can take the rapper out of the hood but sometimes you just can’t take the hood out the rapper. I would have to say that goes double for DMX. In the same time that he put out 6 hit albums he managed to get arrested for a litany of acts including drug possession, animal cruelty, reckless driving, driving without a license while possessing marijuana, parole violation and my personal favorite falsely identifying himself as an FBI agent during a parking lot robbery at JFK airport. Clearly DMX does not give a fuck that he is one of the biggest rappers in the game with millions of dollars in the bank (we assume) and legions of fans. The greatest thing about DMX is that even when he gets caught and has to impress a judge to win freedom he proceeds to drop the f bomb in front of an entire courtroom.
6. Puff Daddy Pisses For Millions of Youtube Fans
Last I heard, Puff Daddy is worth over $300 million. With that kind of cash he can and should do whatever he wants without caring what anyone says. Throw massive parties, pour out bottles of Crystal, complain to the world about the tragedy of rising fuel costs forcing you to skip the private jet and fly commercial. Even make a youtube video about how much you enjoy peeing. Cause he can’t stop, and he won’t stop.
5. Busta Rhymes Needs to Shit
Busta Rhymes Owns Stupid British Woman - Watch more free videos Being a rap star comes with a price, you’re always in the public eye, everywhere you go people will demand you take a thousand pictures and sign autographs for hours. That sounds like it might be fun, except when you’ve been working all day and need to take a massive dump. That’s why I love Busta Rhymes. Most people would make up an excuse or pretend they didn’t hear the fans begging for attention…but not Busta. He confronts these winey bitches head on and makes them look absolutely stupid. 4. 50 Cent Busted Doing Coke 50 Cent Busted Doing Coke Backstage - Watch more free videos You gotta admire the career of 50 cent. Not only is he a wildly successful rapper he’s also an actor and entrepreneur. In fact rapping isn’t his biggest source of income. Not too long ago 50 made a wise investment in his favorite drink Vitamin Water. When Coca Cola purchased Vitamin Water Fiddy took home a nice little $400 million profit. Not bad for a former crack slinger from Jamaica Queens. Clearly 50 doesn’t need to care what anyone thinks which is why he has no problem doing coke in plain sight of a camera crew that is just showing up for their scheduled interview.
3. Akon Abuses His Fans

I think it may be possible that Akon’s star rose a little too fast. Less than two years ago no one had even heard of him and now it seems like he’s putting out a new collaboration every other day. Good for him, but someone needs to explain that he can’t go around punching audience members in the face and throwing them off the stages head first. But clearly he just doesn’t care and he may be doomed to become a convict again very soon.
2. Tupac Stars Huge Brawl In Casino
At the height of his popularity Tupac was the king of west coast rap, a talented actor and one of the biggest celebrities in the world. Apparently all that fame and success didn’t do much in the way of softening his hard roots. There are many legends of beat downs at the Death Row offices, some maybe even administered by Pac himself. So it shouldn’t be too much of a surprise that Tupac was willing to start an all our melee in the middle of a casino after a Mike Tyson fight. Unfortunately three hours after this brawl Tupac was shot on the Las Vegas strip.
1. Kanye West vs George Bush
KANYE WEST HURRICANE RELIEF BENEFIT - Watch more free videos
On the heels of the biggest natural disaster in America’s history hurricane Katrina, the whole country scrambled to provide support and other aid to New Orleans. People were also left wondering how so much tragedy and destruction was allowed to occur in the greatest country on earth. Some say we tried our best to warn people. Other’s blamed FEMA for not providing enough buses to evacuate the poorest of the poor. Kanye West used his platform on a national televised fundraiser to boldly blame someone else entirely, George Bush. Those infamous seven words “George Bush doesn’t care about black people” left his co-host Mike Myers completely stunned and speechless. It also solidified Kanye’s place on the top of our list of rap stars who honestly do no care what any one thinks. And why should he? Everything Kanye has touched in the last couple years has touched to gold, he is debatably one of the greatest producers and artists alive. It’s one thing to hate the president in private or to talk about it with friends at a party but to use a national platform to call the most powerful man in the free world a racist in front of 100 million viewers, that takes balls. For that he is clearly the top rap star who truly doesn’t give a fuck.
Last year Nas released an album apocalyptically titled Hip-Hop is Dead. Well, we here at BeatsandBombs.com obviously disagree, but we do feel that over the years several white rappers have been responsible for some atrocious acts that came very close to killing hip-hop once and for all. These nine acts of musical crime literally brought hip-hop to the brink of death, and now we must learn from the past to ensure history never repeats itself. Why only 9? Because the man wouldn’t let us have 10. Coolest rapper EVER!! - Watch more free videos
British Loser on X FactorThis British teenager is convinced that he has the look, the personality and most important the talent to become a massive rap superstar. He even claims to have drawn comparisons to his idol Eminem. Unfortunately the only thing this reject shares with Eminem is they both need a solid SPF 50 when they go to the beach.
Average Homeboy Denny BlazeThe late 80’s were a crazy time in America. Wall Street was boomed then bombed, crack was ravaging the inner cities of America, and hip hop started to become mainstream. Amidst all this chaos, a determined white kid from Cleveland by the name of Denny Blaze released a self produced rap album and homemade music video. The video was sent to all the major record labels and most copies were immediately destroyed for the sake of humanity. But one copy survived and was unleashed onto the internet almost 20 years later. Within 24 hours the video had racked up millions of views as the world was painfully introduced to The Average Homeboy.
John Brown and the White Rapper ShowNow the whole “White Rapper Show” is an embarrassment to white people. The awful contestant selection guaranteed that this show would be the laughingstock of the hip-hop world throughout the entire season. Although we had a wealth of talentless contestants to choose from, John Brown is the one I am featuring because his whole image and persona scream to the world what a joke he is. And If you weren’t already laughing, on the show he frequently referred to himself as the “King of the ‘burbs”, thank you for making me cringe more John Brown.
John Cena Fake Rap Battles FanJohn Cena should be ashamed of himself. Not for that god awful piece of garbage movie The Marine, but for introducing an army of impressionable young wrestling fans to the world of rap battles. Every time this block of wood raps in public thousands of talentless middle class white kids get false hope that they too will someday be a professional rapper/actor/wrestler. When in reality they will just end up spending the next couple years annoying the shit out of their parents and future co-workers at Dairy Queen.
Limp Bizkit Rollin’ Urban Assault Vehicle remixFred Durst’s late 90’s fame will go down as one of the greatest mysteries the world has ever known. And he wasn’t just famous, for about a year he was a fucking superstar, one of the biggest in the world. Famous enough where he actually claims to have boned Britney Spears and Mandy Moore, and as crazy as that sounds today, it wasn’t that unreasonable back in 1999. Even the Hip-Hop community was briefly fooled with truly talented artists like Method Man, DMX and Redman actually agreeing to collaborate with the balding red-capped ass-clown. Fortunately the dotcom bubble wasn’t the only unsustainable phenomenon built on lies and general public ignorance to suddenly burst in the early 2000’s. I don’t know where Fred Durst is today, nor do I care, I just hope he realizes that he got away with one of the biggest scams in history and for that he deserves every loogie that gets launched on him on a daily basis wherever he goes.
Vanilla Ice Play That Funky MusicWhat hasn’t already been said about Vanilla Ice? We all know the story and we all knew he had to appear on this list. Even though the American Public has recently had a cautious reconciliation with Mr. Van Winkle after a not so terrible appearance on VH1’s The Surreal Life, the scars he left may never heal. Who knows how many talented white rappers never got their chance because we were still years away from accepting another Caucasian MC? To mix things up a bit, we’re not pointing out his most famous crime against hip-hop “Ice Ice Baby” and instead going with the less known but equally awful song Play That Funky Music.

Karl Rove Raps at the White House Correspondents DinnerConsidering Karl Rove is the right-wing mastermind behind arguably the most anti-urban political party and presidency of the last 150 years, I think it is safe to say that he represents the exact polar opposite of the hip-hop community. In fact he is hip-hop’s worst enemy. Which is why when he whipped out alter ego “MC Rove” at last year’s White House Correspondent’s dinner he dealt a particularly deadly blow to the hip-hop community. And knowing Rove, I bet he did it on purpose. He was probably hoping that his performance would leave hip-hop fans so fractured and disenfranchised that their entire community would implode forever.
Brian Austin GreenSome Atheists will point to the many daily tragedies, murders and overall violence in the world as proof that there is no God. I think a much more reasonable argument for God either not existing or being innately evil is Brian Austin Green’s life. If God was truly a loving and reasonable being then Brian Austin Green would have died from that flesh eating virus years ago. But instead of being punished for his acts of utter cruelty on 90210 he is somehow lives on and even thrives. In fact he actually managed to have sex with the hottest girl on the planet Megan Fox. As long as we live in a world where Brian Austin Green is allowed to even listen to hip-hop let alone attempt to participate in it and he continues to bang Megan Fox then there clearly can be no God.
Kevin Federline PopoZaoI debated whether or not Kevin Federline’s disastrous 2006 foray into hip-hop even qualified to make this list since it was universally panned and did not make any impact what-so-ever on the world. I think he sold a grand total of 300 CDs, all of which were bought drunkenly as a joke. But even though he did not sell 30 million albums like his Vanilla flavored predecessor, the fact that he was able to create an entire album of “music”, release three singles and even a music video feels like the equivalent of a back alley gang rape. Maybe Federline’s failure/success means we as a society have finally learned from prior mistakes and are able to reject utter garbage like his before it has a chance to hurt someone. Or maybe we should all be terrified that it has gotten so easy for any white jackass with a coupon for 2 free hours of studio time, a pony tail and a fading pop star girlfriend to participate in hip-hop on such a large scale. As the saying goes, what doesn’t kill you only makes you stronger so hopefully hip-hop isn’t dead as Nas claimed but instead is stronger than ever and ready to take 6 bullets at once without flinching, like Fiddy.
KRS-One and Soulja Boy sat down recently and chatted about Hip-Hop culture past and present. First off the headline reads "KRS-One Officially Welcomes Soulja Boy" WTF is that? Also how do you get welcomed in to Hip-Hop after you've already put out an album? A lot of this just doesn't make sense to me but enough of the hating. There were a few parts of the conversation I found interesting first Soulja Boy asked KRS-One why all the older rappers were hating on him and KRS-One answered him how the old cats don't want to see all the hard work they put in go for nothing if the new generation doesn't respect the culture. This stuff just sounds like your typical bitter old man syndrome vs. being young and dumb. The other thing I couldn't believe was KRS had to explain to Soulja Boy how Hip-Hop started out with graffiti, break dancing, beat boxing etc. You crazy kids today, read up on your history haha.

I saw this article and had to post it. This lets you know how influential Isaac Hayes' music was on the Hip-Hop culture. The author picks out his favorite Isaac Hayes samples and then says the song it is used as a sample in and lets you hear both songs. Really cool stuff. Check it out!
