Celebrity names impersonated

I thought I'd change it up a little today.

I was thinking today about why artists, singers, actors etc. change their names.

Answer: Because somehow 50 Cent sounds so much better than Curtis Jackson (*side eye and sarcasm*).

So today I'm going to expose their gubment (yes I said gubment) names. And if the FBI, LAPD, Secret Service, IRS or Arizona State Police (that means YOU DMX) are reading, you didn't get any of this info from me.

Real names of Hip hop and R&B artists:

Ashanti Ashanti Shaquoya Douglas
Busta Rhymes Trevor Tahiem Smith
Chaka Khan Carole Yvette Marie Stevens
Flava Flav William Jonathan Drayton, Jr
Flo Rida Tramar Dillard
The Game Jayceon Terrell Taylor
Juvenile Terius Gray
Lupe Fiasco Wasalu Muhammad Jaco
Plies Algernod Lanier Washington
Remy Ma Reminisce Smith
Vivica Fox Vivica Anjanetta Fox

and the ass backwards award goes to:

Michelle Johnson aka Meshell Ndegeocello

the completely random flashback award goes to: Yourree Dell Harris but you may remember her better as:

Call me now! ROTFL

sadly, most of those names do sound better. my favorite famous name from a fucked up "gubment" name is elgin lumpkin aka ginuwine. his parents must have hated him.
