There are many events in rap history that are either unknown or forgotten, from album releases to deaths to random ass events most of us can't even recall. As an attempt to remember those moments, Complex will share an event that helped shape hip-hop in a sometimes minor, sometimes major way. Join us as we look back on This Day in Rap History.
March 4, 2010
In February 2010, St. Louis rapper J-Kwon—best known for his hit song "Tipsy"—went AWOL, only to resurface a month later on March 4, 2010. There seemed to be no particular reasoning behind his absence—his label Gracie Productions justified it as him just needing some alone time. The label even set up a twitter account, @WhereIsJkwon, which provided fans with updates on his whereabouts. Though in all honesty, well before this incident we were wondering, "What ever happened to that guy J-Kwon?" since he kinda fell off the map after "Tipsy" popped off.
