We all have that artist or album as a kid that we thought was the best thing ever to grace music only to realize one day that you were wrong and the only thing worse than your taste in music, was the music itself.

I'm gonna share this with you guys only because I feel like we've become bros and broettes and I can trust you guys not to make fun of me....You're totally gonna make fun of me until I die for this btw.

My favorite artist when I was 12 years old was a "rapper". Yes, I went through a very heavy rap phase as a kid. Not only that but I had to put the word "rapper" in quotations because this "artist" was among the worst to ever put pen to paper.

Shaquille O'Neal back in the day was HUGE not only in height but he had video games that were literally made in his likeness. He was everywhere. Sadly, he also had a rap career. I owned not 1 but 3 of his albums. Don't judge me. Look them up. They may possibly have been the worst sounds ever to come out of a set of speakers and I LOVED every.damn.one.
