2011 was a strange year for Hip-Hop signings, and reminded us that sometimes a label will spend millions of dollars on a rapper who doesn't even have an album or mixtape.

Busta Rhymes must be wanting to get out of the game badly. He literally just committed career suicide by signing with Young Money.
