Sammy Adams caused quite a stir in 2010 when his debut album topped the digital hip-hop charts the week of its release. Sam Adams -- his real first and middle name -- was a senior at Trinity College in Hartford when he decided to inject some attitude into Asher Roth's hit "I Love College." With the results posted digitally under the name Sam Adams, his answer song, "I Hate College," made the rapper an Internet star in 2009. It was followed the next year by the underground mixtape Boston's Opening Day, plus his aboveground debut, the Boston's Boy EP. The EP debuted on the top of digital hip-hop charts, driven in part by the success of the single "Driving Me Crazy." He returned in 2013 with Homecoming, an album that officially changed his performing name to Sammy Adams in order to avoid any confusion with everyone's favorite Boston-based brewing company.
Waka Flocka made his solo mixtape debut in 2009 with Shoot Me or Salute Me, the first of numerous mixtape releases that year. Also in 2009 he scored his first commercial hit with "O Let's Do It" and was featured on the song "Bingo" on Gucci Mane's hit album The State vs. Radric Davis. His debut solo effort, Flockaveli, arrived on the Asylum label in 2010 and debuted at number six on the U.S. Billboard 200. A year later the "Round of Applause" single with Drake previewed the rapper's sophomore effort, but when his friend and posse member Slim Dunkin was tragically killed, Waka spent months grieving and away from the studio. As such, Triple F Life: Friends, Fans and Family didn't land until 2012. Guest appearances included Nicki Minaj, Tyler, the Creator, and B.o.B, while production came from the likes of Lex Luger and Southside, along with Troy Taylor, who handled the beats on the album's second single, "I Don't Really Care."
