From hilariously entertaining to violently sinister, here are stories behind 10 of most fascinating hip-hop alter egos. While rappers are coy to expressing themselves their music, sometimes they are able to relay every message that crosses their mind via their initial public identities. Often conceived as outlet to assert unusual personality traits and musical abilities, alter egos can either crack into darkest corners of rappers imagination, or be used as simple way for artists to change their style. Sometimes radical, sometimes subtle in their divergence from artists ' usual work, throughout years weve seen our fair share of alter rap personas drop entire of their own, make occasional cameo for song / video, or get killed off by their creators. So without further ado, here are 10 of most fascinating alter egos weve been introduced to in history of hip-hop music.

Romans ' erratic persona and biting rapping style have often drawn parallels to Eminems Slim Shady-dynamic two collaborate on Nickis Pink Friday track Romans Revenge. Like Ems rapport with Slim, Roman permits baby-voice rap vixen to tap into fire-breathing, cheekily nihilistic spirit that's garners countless guest appearances and performance cameos. After Minaj released Pink Friday: Roman reload-Re-Up in 2012, fans and critics alike noticed absence of their beloved salty spitfire. Over course of 2013, Roman's absence increased speculation that rapper may have indeed retired character, which was confirmed in 2014 after Nicki declared that she had got tired of him so he die. No word on if Roman will ever be but well proceed to pour on out.
