The Name Game
Before stepping into the rap game, many artists struggled with carving out a niche and identity. It took a while for many of them to fully assemble their career before etching out a name and identity they were proud of. In many cases, some rappers in the middle of the careers, felt the need to change their names because they were in a different standing mentally in life. Take a look and see which rappers changed their names at one point in their careers.
From Puff Daddy to P.Diddy to Diddy, the Bad Boy executive is probably one of the few entertainers to have multiple recognizable stage names.
Before 2 Chainz became a huge staple on guest appearances, he was once known as Tity Boy. During his Playa Circle days, 2 Chainz ran with that moniker until he became a solo entity.
We’re sure Birdman quashed his old stage name of “Baby” simply because he got tired of grown men referring to him as such. We would be too.
