*Flies in on a Flying Nimbus*

Alright, I’m back in the building, so take your time and get comfortable. Do whatever your vice is. Get yourself a cup of green tea and focus your mind and energy b. Turn off your PS4 and be astounded by this legendary post, and watch your boy work.

Since the beginning of time there’s always been overrated things. Dinosaurs are mad overrated b. Achilles is overrated. John Wilkes Booth is overrated. When it comes to rap there are SO many rappers that do great work that you might notice some put in more work than others, but there’s a LOT who have music/fans that taint the legacy son. If you can rap good you can, but not EVERYONE is a GREAT MC…so w/o further ado…promise to not get emotional :/

  • Jay

    WHERE’S THE DOWNVOTE BUTTON? ALSO, WHERE’S JAY-Z, KENDRICK, AND KRIT?

    • Jay

      FORGOT KANYE TOO, PUT HIS ASS ON THERE TOO. SMH U STILL THE HOMIE THO. BITCH.

    • gangstajew

      how the fuck is krit overrated??? nobody knows who he is foreal.

  • Seerrrrrg

    On point homie, even tho Andre still questionable, all others are where they belong.

  • Wrong Bryan. ㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤ

    If Pac is a fair reason to put apart of the overrated Top 5 list but I honestly think André 3000 shouldn’t be on this list. Wayne’s easily #1. If we’re talking about overrated rappers, Jay-Z is on this discussion too. I love Kanye more than any of the rappers mentioned but I think it’s fair to say he’s apart of the overrated rappers list.

    Also, s/o to Angelica’s cute ass. She probably won’t see this lmao

  • Apex

    My feelings want to be hurt so bad since you mentioned Em but I can’t even disagree with you. Good list.

  • Tara

    “First class flight to my recycle bin” lolol the disrespect is legendary

  • DaysBeforeRodeoTrk11

    1. LIL WAYNE
    2. JAY-Z
    3. Drake
    4. TI
    5. 2Pac

  • DaysBeforeRodeoTrk11

    But i can see ya points.

  • Han

    Em & Andre tough to swallow. BUT I get it, I get it

  • Afia

    Most of this I would say is true.. However I feel that André 3000 is not the most overrated rapper 🙁

  • KaDarreus Profanity Lollis

    I don’t agree with this list, Andre3K is dope still and Wayne is still killing shit and coming up with new shit

  • Nina

    #1 got me in my feelings

  • mjmoney9s .

    3 stakes is overrated because of the Media and niggles like you and come on number 3 you was tripping because must of the decades he wasn’t a rapper. Ill Wayne should for real be number 1 and drake pussy ass should be number 2.

  • danny

    This list is fucking retarded written by someone who clearly has zero I.Q. about music

  • Cdthasad

    List is accurate. I’d add Kendrick but that’s just me

  • Clobes

    I’d say biggie number 5 or 4, two classic albums and then a few okay ones, not really enough material for me.

    • YaBoy

      BIG only had two albums.

      • Clobes

        Badboy released some posthumous stuff, but the features were wack except for method man and i think ghost face.

  • thesamurai

    Valid points but Andre 3000 overrated? Nah.

  • Guest

    I will argue Em being on this list until the end of time.

    Also this appears to not set up a concrete guideline for what it means to be overrated, and instead picks at each individual rapper’s flaws.

    For example. Pac is mainly slammed for not being technically gifted. So is Drake. But then the next slide, is Em.

    Pac: “He was the best at his time at inspiring…as a RAPPER he wasn’t that special.”
    Drake: “He has his moments of course but he isn’t the best technical rapper”

    What happens when we get to Em?
    Em: “His technical rapper skills are top 5…his music is not…which is why he does not make my Top 5 overall.”

    The Eminem slide contradicts what kicked Pac and Drake out.

    • John Paul Martin

      I guess it didn’t delete properly. Oh well.

  • John Paul Martin

    This appears to not set up a concrete guideline for what it means to be
    overrated, and instead picks at each individual rapper’s flaws. That’s not determining who’s overrated, at *all*

    For example. Pac is mainly slammed for not being technically gifted. So is Drake. But then the next slide, is Em.

    Pac: “He was the best at his time at inspiring…as a RAPPER he wasn’t that special.”
    Drake: “He has his moments of course but he isn’t the best technical rapper”

  • Bro

    I like these. It’s unbiased as hell. I thought alot of the same things about Tupac and drake is good on the power that K. Dot is the ONLY other rapper in the spotlight that don’t sound like they came from someone ass.

  • Lont Trojanman Mac

    Tupac is definitely up there. But Wayne? He gets disrespected constantly. He’s definitely not overrated.

  • YungCokeGodd

    I Dont Really Care For Overrated Lists Cause Every Rapper w/ A Fan Base Will Be Overrated At Least Once, But For As This List Go Putting 3 Stacks At 1# Was Lowkey Genius ..Good Shit B.

  • OMARLOVESBATMAN

    Kanye should’ve been number one imo, rest of the list is pretty solid. Idk bout Andre though.. And Soul got an honorable mention? :/

  • ju

    disagree with 3 Stacks being number one but it was a good list, everyone I would have put on it. I gotta fight this Jay character for the Kanye slander though.

  • P-Body

    Smh man I’m not going to even waste my time commenting on this.

  • The Lightskin Kanye

    Oh no no no no. I only agree with Pac

  • GUEST ASS NIGGA

    Salute

  • Quentin Maurice Moore

    You know these new niggas love lies and hate truth. Keep telling it, nephew!

  • Ricardo RJay Jett

    when i seen the picture of Pac and Ab Soul and Biggie as honorable mentions i didn’t even bother to read the rest of this bullshit

  • mjmoney9s .

    Kanye put one bad album out and now he sucks

  • Sir Jo

    I bet yo ass ain’t never been in a real studio behind a mic. You got nerve son. Fake ass website!

  • DuB
