More rappers should change their names, à la Killer Mike

Michael Render, the Atlanta hip-hop artist formerly known as Killer Mike, would now like to be known as Mike Bigga.

The reason for this is, as he explained to, "I really feel like I’m bigger than what I have been in the past and I’ve managed to get legendary status from being a raw rap guy in terms of being able to come out of the shadows of the hardships I’ve had."

That's not a sentence any English teacher could support, but the decision to remove the "Killer" from his name probably is.

What other rappers should change their name, you ask?

50 Cent

Suggested Change: 55 Cents

Reason: Inflation!

Young Jeezy

Suggested Change: Not As Young As He Used To Be Jeezy

Reason: 31 is young if you're a tree, not so much if you're a rapper.


Suggested Change: AUpstandingCitizen

Reason: The Smoking Gun's 2008 report showed this guy exaggerated his criminal record.

DJ Khaled

Suggested Change: Dude who doesn't sing, rap or produce but has tons of songs anyway.

Reason: More accurate

Ghostface Killah

Suggested Change: Ghostface Bigga

Reason: Oh, forget it.

Don't think these are funny? Screw you! Be funnier in the comments section.
