This label has lived on through over two decades, constantly being a taste maker in the three generations that have transpired since its inception.  On this label alone, Dr. Dre brought you Eminem, 50 Cent, The Game, Kendrick Lamar, and soon-to-be-next-biggest-thing Anderson .Paak.  On top of that, the last two on that list are Dr. Dre's most talented artists (not taking anything away from Prime Eminem & 50). And let's not all forget the success that was Hittman who arguably has had the best career run out of any artist ever. Hopefully, Justus and Jon Connor don't touch that write-off crown.

It's just amazing how this label as constantly been at the intersection of hip-hop culture and has always been associated with classics and quality. It's probably got the best discography of any label under its belt:

The Slim Shady LP
The Chronic 2001
The Marshall Mathers LP
The Eminem Show
Get Rich or Die Trying
The Documentary
good kid, m.A.A.d city
To Pimp a Butterfly
untitled unmastered.

:whew:

That being said, R.I.P. to the Aftermath landfill:

Antonio McLendon
Bishop Lamont
Brooklyn
Dawn Robinson
Dion
Eve
G.A.G.E.
Hayes
Hittman
Alemán
King T
Marsha Ambrosius
RBX
Slim the Mobster
Stat Quo
The Firm
The Last Emperor
Truth Hurts
Joel Ortiz

Can we talk about how One Dance is a 1# hit with no music video?
apparently that streaming success is only enough to pay off a mortgage in London. We're talking real success here

Now to your topic, I feel like Anderson .Paak will have his way in the list you put up very soon

Also, get Eve off of the landfill list, she's been pretty successful and put out good songs, she's not landfill

What do you mean?

She had some shine in the early 2000's, then she kind of vanished

So you consider her landfill because she wasn't a legend like the rappers you listed above?

2009 to 2012 had Recovery (2010). I'll give you 2011 but fuck, that's less than 2 year gap

Kendrick's still an Aftermath artist and was promoted as such
