Hip-hop industry is probably the biggest on the planet and definitely one of the most influential. That makes it very fond to the public eye meaning cameras are everywhere, everytime. Here is a list of moments that have made headlines and shocked fans accross the globe but not in a positive manner, unfortunately.

1. R’ Kelly’s Sex-tape

If you are a 90’s kid, there is no way you have not heard of the R. Kelly sex-tape scandal as it was a huge media moment. It all started with the surface of the sex tape but matters got even worse when it was found out that R. Kelly allegedly urinates on the underage girl on camera.
2. Diddy’s Shooting Case

On December 27, 2001 in Club New York, a gunfire broke out. The media exploded when it was reported that Sean Combs driver turned his boss and his associate Shyne to police after allegedly Diddy tried to bribe him in taking a weapon used in the club.
3. Akon and the underage girl

Another scandal on the level of R.Kelly’s sex tape is the one that involved the rapper Akon and an underage girl. The shocking video had Akon getting a little too close to a young girl who was later found out to be a pastor daughter. Even if the club was supposed to be 21+ only, the scandal had Akon apologizing and even writing a song about the incident.
4. Chris Brown and the SWAT Team

While Chris is well known for making waves in the media often, one of his latest encounters is with a little-known model/actress Baylee Curran. She was allegedly threatened by Brown with a gun at his house while attending a party, so after a 9 hour standoff with the SWAT Teams, Chris was arrested.
5. Rapper Houston taking his own eye out

The rapper “Houston” gained notoriety on the music scene with his single “I like that” but it seems fame was a little too much to handle for him. He began to contemplate suicide and even attempted it by jumping from a window but the most horrific scene is when he took his own eye out with a plastic fork as he believed he was haunted.
6. Lil’ Mama crashing Jay-Z & Alicia Keys performance

In 2009 at the MTV awards while Jay-Z was performing his hit single “Empire State of Mind” alongside Alicia Keys, journalists and news reporters jumped out their seats as Lil’ Mama arrived uninvited to the party. Things were visibly awkward for the artist and the apex moment was struck with the final pose as you can see how confused they are looking.
7. Kanye West at the 2009 VMA’s

While Kanye has, had, and will have scandalous moments and rants forever, one of the most remembered will always be his 2009 VMA speech interruption. Taylor Swift was just delivering the speech while accepting her award for Music Video of the Year when Kanye snatched her mic let everyone know Beyonce’s video was better.
8. Ol’ Dirty Bastard and The MTV Limo Ride

ODB should probably have a top of his own WTF moments as it is hard to pick one. Probably one of the most funny rides ever, ODB took the MTV Crew back in ’95 with a limousine to pick up food stamps at the Welfare Center.
9. Eminem’ s Bully

In 2001, DeAngelo Bailey, who was better known as the bully in Eminem’s song “Brain Damage” sued him for slander. The case is a WTF moment thanks to the judge who dissmissed the case in a very funny way:
“Mr Bailey complains that his rap is trash
So he’s seeking compensation in the form of cash,
Bailey thinks he’s entitled to some monetary gain
Because Eminem used his name in vain.
The lyrics are stories no one would take as fact
They’re an exaggeration of a childish act.”
10. Big Lurch – The Cannibal

In 2002, an L.A. resident saw a naked man in the street that was covered in blood. The man was a rapper also known as Big Lurch who had just opened up a woman’s torso and chewed her lungs probably under the influence of drugs. Pleading insanity did not help him avoid getting life in prison.
