As artists churn out hits throughout the years, not only does their sound evolve but so does the way they look. Style choices aside, some of our favorite singers and rappers have grown up tremendously in the music industry. People like Rihanna, 50 Cent and Justin Timberlake, who started their careers as teenagers, have blossomed into successful men and women. They rule the charts and have branched off into other ventures, making them both a hitmaker and a mogul.

The Boombox decided to take a trip down memory lane to see how some of your favorite artists looked when they first stepped into the spotlight. Whether it's been over a decade since they released their first album or just a few years ago, these ladies and gentlemen have made quite the transformation. Check out What Rappers and Singers Looked Like When They Released Their First Albums.
