Good quiz idea, but without forced order, it becomes "name a bunch of rappers and we'll give you credit". Simple fix: On the Game Info tab, change Gametype it from Classic to Clickable. On the Options page uncheck the Randomize Order of Answers box, then check the Use Hints, the Randomize Questions and Put Answers in Alphabetical Order. Finally, change the Button Size to Small.

Alright thanks i'll do that. Thats kinda confusing but ill fix it, so basically just make it clickable rather then classic and make it alphabetical order...
Jun 22nd, 2012 at 16:54 GMT
I fixed it, now it makes it harder and i added 2 minutes

Clifford Harris and Clifford Smith in the same quiz... that was just mean. I knew T.I.'s real name, so when I saw "Clifford", I clicked him without catching the last name. Of course, the game was on the wrong Clifford.

How... did people get Tupac, Obie Trice, and Kanye West wrong?

attn sporcle user "Guinevere": Nate Dogg isn't actually dead. he just sent me this message: "THIS IS NATHANIEL DWAYNE HALE AND I AINT DEAD, BUT IF I EVER FIND THE PERSON WHO HACKED MY PAGE THEY WILL BE!!!!! ONCE AGAIN NATE DOGG AINT DEAD!!!!!!! IM SMOKIN A FAT ASS KUSH JOINT RIGHT NOW!!!!!!"
Feb 7th, 2013 at 19:38 GMT
lol only one i knew was eminem! still got 5 thoguh
Feb 7th, 2013 at 19:45 GMT
A lot of rappers I never even heard of were guessable on here, like Eazy-E. Ended up coming down to 7 that I missed.
Feb 7th, 2013 at 19:48 GMT
I'm very surprised how many people didn't know Snoop's real name.
Feb 7th, 2013 at 19:50 GMT
How has someone never heard of Eazy-E? That's just sad. I know he's been dead for almost 20 years, but still.
Feb 7th, 2013 at 19:56 GMT
After seeing the answers, it looks so obvious. But couldn't see it during the quiz.
Feb 7th, 2013 at 20:00 GMT
Nicki Minaj can hardly be considered a rap artist when Tupac and Eminem are in the same category.
Feb 7th, 2013 at 20:03 GMT
@eab21: Many people don't think she should be considered any kind of "artist".
Feb 7th, 2013 at 20:04 GMT
Snoop Lion? When did Snoop Dogg change his name?
Feb 7th, 2013 at 20:10 GMT
Ladies love Cool James
Feb 7th, 2013 at 20:17 GMT
If this was called "Rappers by Birth Name ft: Nate Dogg" it would go gold.
Feb 7th, 2013 at 20:21 GMT
Cornell = Nelly, how did I not see that? It makes so much more sense once you have the answers.
Feb 7th, 2013 at 20:30 GMT
Aliaune Damala Bouga Time Puru Nacka Lu Lu Lu Badara Akon Thiam? Why would anyone's parents do this to their child. No wonder the poor guy turned out to be a popstar (I know he's a "rapper" but cmon, "smack that" "lonely" etc....)
Feb 7th, 2013 at 21:01 GMT
That's just a part of his culture.
Feb 7th, 2013 at 21:04 GMT
Calvin, Clifford, O'Shea and Aubrey: they definitely NEEDED stage names.
Feb 7th, 2013 at 21:06 GMT
Now which one looks like they have the middle name 'Lu Lu Lu'?... Akon!
Feb 7th, 2013 at 21:25 GMT
It's no mere happenstance that Dwayne Michael Carter, Jr. comes up as a question before Darryl Matthews McDaniels, just begging you to pick D.M.C. for the wrong guy.
Feb 7th, 2013 at 21:33 GMT
I'm just happy to see Hopsin on there!
Feb 7th, 2013 at 21:46 GMT
what about Vanilla Ice?
Feb 7th, 2013 at 21:52 GMT
Nate Dogg's only regret is that he had but one life to give to singing hooks.
Feb 7th, 2013 at 22:14 GMT
I can't believe I missed Akon -- it's right there in his name. I guess I was distracted by the Lu Lu Lu.
Feb 7th, 2013 at 22:39 GMT
There's a lot you can get by 'educated guesses' and the really well known ones, but Dwayne Michael Carter not being DMC threw me!
Feb 7th, 2013 at 23:30 GMT
"Oh, wow, there's no way I'm going to get more than 3 right." /takes quiz 23/25 Oh. It's almost like a word puzzle, there's usually at least some correlation.

Why is nobody called "Talentless Dick"
Feb 8th, 2013 at 01:14 GMT
I don't really think that Akon is a rapper, he mostly sings in his songs.
Feb 8th, 2013 at 01:17 GMT
And nicki minaj is definitely not rap
Feb 8th, 2013 at 01:26 GMT
What is the source on Akon's name? I looked it up, and the sources I've found report a much shorter version of his birth name.
Feb 8th, 2013 at 02:15 GMT
Akon's name is crazy as ****.
Feb 8th, 2013 at 02:31 GMT
Aliaune Damala Bouga Time Puru Nacka Lu Lu Lu Badara Akon Thahiem. Surprised i didn't get that one. Damn.
Feb 8th, 2013 at 02:46 GMT
What's my motherf*ckin' name? Snoop Doggy Doooggggg (the bomb)
Feb 8th, 2013 at 03:00 GMT
2Pac's "birth name" was Lesane Parish Crooks.
