(Newser) – Before Chingy or Master P came Shaq's failed try at rap. And before him were many other shameful attempts at the lyrical flow. Yahoo lists the worst rappers ever:

  1. Vanilla Ice: The "Ice Ice Baby" king also failed as an actor in Cool as Ice.
  2. MC Hammer started a fashion craze—thankfully brief—with "U Can't Touch This."

  1. Brian Austin Green spoiled his heartthrob image with a series of sleep-inducing failures.
  2. Dee Dee King was a fabulous bass player for the Ramones, and later punk rocker. But rap? Not his thing.
  3. Puff Daddy rode his success on the back of classics by bands like the Police.
