Hey Y’all! We are back with another WATN, and this time we are focusing on the people who were lucky enough to have a song that was nationally recognized and charted, but unlucky enough to stay in the limelight.
Now, let’s remember that at least they were able to reach success, so they’re not failures, and their journey isn’t done yet. So, let’s see where they are now, and look forward to what they might have in store for us in the future. Are you ready? Let’s get it, starting with…
The Louisiana native first came on the music scene in 2007 with the song “A Bay Bay,” an ode to… I’m not sure. I thought it was an ode to catcalling, but the first lyrics of the song makes you feel as though you can use it for any situation (particularly in one where you’re free to dance barefoot in a hot club. Hey, I didn’t say it!) This was the lead single from his debut album 51/50 Rachet.
After the release of this hit single, he went on to release two more albums. Unleashed had the singles “Halle Berry (She’s Fine),” on it, along with the song “Headboard” that featured Plies and Mario.
Hurricane Chris maintained visibility by doing features, appearing in remixes, and had a beef with fellow rapper Dorrough.
In 2014 Chris released the single Ratchet with rapper Lil Boosie from the soon to be released album Return of the Hurricane.
