Yungstar Throwed Yung Playa (Straight Profit Records, 1999)
Man, remember Yungstar, the acute-voiced MC that sprung into the troposhere following his mammoth appearance in Lil Troy's hit "Wanna Be A Baller," then solidified his place in Houston hip-hop history with the anachronistic anthem "Knockin' Pictures Off Da Wall," then vanished from relevance shortly thereafter when his brand of rap fell out of favor?
His story isn't unique to rap - or music, for that matter - but that doesn't make it feel any less unfair or brutal.
