10 Rappers With Unusual Alter Egos

From Beyonce to Nicki Minaj, every artist has an alter ego these days. As fans of hip-hop and R&B, we’re attracted to rappers and singers who not only make timeless music but also for how they present themselves to us. Stage personas are everything. Artists spice things up a bit and step outside of the box and push their artistry to another level. Enter the alter ego.

Do you remember back in 2008, when Beyonce introduced the world to Sasha Fierce? The BeyHive went mad (in a good way) over her new identity and the singer even made  an entire album dedicated to her, I Am… Sasha Fierce. Two years later, she “killed” her. Mary J. Blige even created a new persona, Brook Lynn, whom she revealed on her album, Breakthrough. Brook Lynn was less reserved than Mary and illuminated the urban flare hip-hop requires. 

But it’s not only singers who give themselves new attitudes. Eminem came out the gate with Slim Shady with his first song “My Name Is.” Years later, Slim Shady met Nicki Minaj’s Roman Zolanski and the two alter egos collaborated on the high-energy track “Roman’s Revenge.”

Ultimately, alter egos are used as an outlet for artists to express themselves in ways they can’t with their usual persona. They’re even more daring, edgy and their attitude is on fleek. For example, Roman was a male and Sasha Fierce was sexy on a trillion. There are even more artists with interesting sides to their personalities. We got creative and put together a game to see just how well you know your favorite rappers. Take our challenge to see how many you get correctly while flipping through our gallery of 10 Rappers With Unusual Alter Egos.
