11 Rappers Who Were Once Slept-On (But Aren't Anymore)

Big Boi

Throughout the '90s, Big Boi was often overshadowed by Andre 3000. Yes, 3 Stacks is an incredible rhymer, but his outrageous clothing and persona had a lot to do with him standing out, too. If you listen closely, Sir Luscious always held his own.

When Big Boi got a chance to really prove himself on Speakerboxxx—a solo album—he knocked it out of the park with an exciting, inventive record. Years later, he returned with the highly-acclaimed Sir Lucious Left Foot: The Son of Chico Dusty. Big Boi's second solo album made people realize that not only is he was still a dynamic force without his partner-in-rhyme, but his previous contributions to 'Kast's albums had surely been overlooked.
