Most Overrated Rappers of All Time

Keep in mind its overrated not the worse. So soulja boy is not overrated because we all know he sucks and the same goes with all these crappy one hit wonders and pop rappers. 50 cent for instance has no respect amoung hip-hop heads these days barring him from consideration for this list and there are many more bad rappers who are famous and sell records but everyone other than the pop crowd knows there garbage. Like fiddy and nelly and Mike Jones we all know there garbage.

Keep in mind you can be good and overrated most overrated rappers are good and some are even great like pac and eminem they just dont deserve greatest ever consideration at all.

The Top Ten

1
Lil Wayne
autotune autotune autotune and some more autotune added in there. his lyrics are s*** too. I really dislike him. I don't see how people can stand to listen to him get high and talk for four minutes with an autotuned voice.
Wayne claims himself to be "the best rapper alive" But really his rhymes are nowhere near Nas, AZ, GZA, Eminem, Talib Kweli, Immortal technique, Kurupt and many more all of them being still alive

Wayne is definitvly the most overated rapper dead or alive
Look at his fanbase.. Either very young or very phony people, you know you gotta like it to relate to it which explains why phony people like phony rapper

2Kanye West
RUBBISH - listen fools kanye is an innovator his albums are so different - that takes some serious skill. And he kills it in graduation and watch the throne- with some seriously good verses, but college dropout late regestration and yeezus were still pretty good lyrically. The fact that he is voted second is just a stain on this website
He's an ass but the man manipulates music like few others can. He's earlier stuff is brilliant
Kanye uses copyright tricks such as sampling etc... To get around the music he "samples" or outright steals from. Hiding it behind usually offensive lyrics and a synth,

3Jay-Z
MOST OVERRATED RAPPER OF ALL TIME, next to ice cube, but seriously, his only good album was Reasonable Doubt, and everything after that sucked. Maybe because he started freestyling his lyrics, but that's no excuse. He steals lyrics, most his songs are about money and hoes, he provides little to no clever lyrics a song, and he considers himself the greatest rapper alive. Maybe it's just me, but any rapper who calls himself the greatest rapper alive his already overrated or just truly sucks (lil wayne), its up to the people to decide who the greatest is and to have their own opinions, this is just mine. Love it or hate it.
Anyone who steals lyrics from other rappers is going to be overrated but how people can like Jay is crazy, especially as he has gone really mainstream now.
I can't believe how he gets away with stealing endless lyrics, lose one of the biggest beefs of all time, be a massive sellout and still be considered one of the best rappers. People always go on about Reasonable Doubt, Blueprint and Black Album and that's it, he has like 15 albums and only 3 are considered really good, that's pretty poor. This guy gets way too much respect.

4Drake
Drake has became really poor! Too many love songs and he can't rap! If he's the future 4 rap were all screwed!
he's just awful except for the song forever than he became a disapointment
He is new to the Rap Game. I for one wished he never joined CASH MONEY RECORDS.

5Nicki Minaj
The worst rapper on this list. Not only is she awful lyrically but she sounds like a constipated man forcing out words through that ugly hole she calls a mouth. That butt is fake, her nose is fake, her lyrics are fake. The song "stupid hoe" made me die a little on the inside. Shes awful, should be much higher up on this list.
I don't think I can explain how awful she is in one comment- enough said
Do not get me started on how awful she is my grandma raps better than her and she is FOREIGN and the song she wrote stupid hoe well what is SHE.

6Eminem
He's like a rapping Jesus. He raps about life and gives messages through his music. On the other hand Lil Wayne raps about stupid stuff and blows at it.
Most overrated? Nah he's underrated!
How is Eminem even on this? Yes you can consider me a Stan because Eminem is my idol and I been listening to him since age 5 but he is not overrated because he is actually good. He is lyrically superior and musically talented then any rapper in the game right now. He is indeed the Rap god and I'm not trying to ride him but he is the best. Same thing with 50 why is he on here? Macklemore should replace Eminem on this list and Drake should be #1

7Soulja Boy
So overrated its not even funny
I know you said, everyone knows he sucks, but he did hae number one with the worst song of all time
Oh crank that soulja boy till he starts getting treated like he should be I'm not saying he is bad he is just not as good as most rappers so soulja boy is over rates by far he will never be as good as eminem or snoop dog or lil wayne

8Snoop Dogg
He died when he changed to Snoop Lion
Early Stuff was good. Fell of really hard after doggfood witch is his second best work to date. Just listen to his first album with no limit and you will know why he should never be considered a legendary rapper
I used to love the old snoop and now look what he is and does...1. Go from a christian to illuminati devil worshiper...2. Then nation of islam in 2009 for 8 months... Then into snoop lion in august 2012 and change relegion to rastafasrion rasta... Make a song with david guetta that is auto tune singing and was the west coast scene and hanged out with biggie when pac hated him. Who is he? I still love his rap style and old songs...

1050 Cent
I am an underrated rapper myself and it annoys me how lame, uninspired 'lyricists' seem to float to the top.
No lyrical ability, no storytelling, not impressive at all. Getting shot or being gangsta don't make a rapper good by any means. Not superwhack either, but he's nothing special
I hate 50 cent period

11Rick Ross
This fat sack of dung definitely needs to be way higher on this list. At least in the top five. I just can't imagine in what universe did this slug ever became a famous rapper. He couldn't spit knowledge if you held a gun to his head, but he lies about being a Miami drug dealer and then steals a guy's name. Needs to be at the top of this list for sure.

This fat prick should be number 1. Fake thug drug dealer no lyrics talks about the same bs over and over.

12Ludacris
Ludacris is not a rapper he's a clown. At least guys like odb and flava flava are entertaining when they clown around luda isn't. Terrible lyrics, poor rhyming, and no flow I don't get why hip-hop heads have openly accepted him as a good rapper he's not.

13Hichkas
One Day we will see him in Festivals
I just say heis best
Best Rapper In The World! Forever

14Chief Keef
This is the worst rapper I ever heard. All he talks about is stuff he doesn't like. He makes obnoxious noises in his songs and his lyrics are just stupid, plain, and bad. Then he post child pornography on twitter of a girl sucking his ding dong and I don't see how he doesn't arrested for that. Overall I think he is the worst rapper to ever step in a studio and on the planet.
He needs to take a shower, brush his teeth, and pull his pants up before he even says anything.
Surprised he hasn't been shot yet...

He's a hoodlum and a crook that's it no rap skills. Lock his azz up.
There is nothing good about him, his words to make sense and he is just a knuckle head, Eazy E, Dr. Dre and 2Pac Nas DMX Eminem should not be on this list

17Pitbull
His Raps Suck, the only way he can connect a verse to the next is by saying a similar phrase in Spanish.

182 Chainz
Seriously how was he not on this list?
Stop taking 2 chainz seriously, its just fun music. He makes dumb as rock lyrics on purpose.
Laugh out loud dumbed down lyrics, all he can talk about is whores and how he is rich what a joke..

19T.I.
He ain't over-rated, he's a rapper from the south who people know him for songs like: Live your Life or Whatever you Like. If its anything, I think he's an rapper who deserves more credit
T. I tell stories with his music he deserves more credit than yall giving him. REAL LIFE STORIES
T.I. is NOT overrated. He is way underrated if you think he is a "bubblegum pop rapper not a real emcee".

20Macklemore
He's not Terrible but people are saying he's the best of all time cause of one song. WHAT! YOU ARE FORGETTING PAC, BIGGIE, SHADY, NAS, DRE, EAZY, ICE. THEY SOLD LOTS OF ALBUMS AND THEY ARE FORGOTTEN!?!? BUT ONE SONG THAT'S NOT MAINSTREAM IS THE BEST OF ALL TIME? No, nope, sorry, yeah no.
His work is not great it's ok. But the big problems I have with him is that many actually underrated artists like immortal technique, Yella wolf, Pro Era, and so on put in much work into what they love. But I'm sure Macklemore had done his fair share of work. But he is overrated, he literally got lucky with Thrift shop one song and many others put much more work out and don't get what they truly do deserve.
He is terrible. He made it acceptable for 13 year old surburban white girls to listen to rap and not Nas and 2pac rap (good rap) I mean lil wayne and mackelmore (bad rap)

23DMX
What dmx is good, he have different style and listen to the song slippin
Dmx is a dark poet, listen to his songs to feel and see what everyone fears which is coming in contact with the devil.
His lyrics are average, his freestyles are poor, his rhyme scheme is simple, and he occasionally barks like a dog on his songs. The only really positive thing about X is his voice and that's about it.

24Sagopa Kajmer

He is insanely bad and I do not understand a word he "speaks"
Too much auto tune and it's scary to listen to.
He sounds like he's crying on every track. I can't sit through 30 seconds of any of his music.
Just outrigbht horrible, a disgrace to hip hop/rap culture.

32John Cena
John Cena is just a wannabe I don't know much about him but I heard him copy at least 10 Eminem songs so I don't think anyone actually classifies him as a rapper wrestler, sure, but not rapper

34Kendrick Lamar
Man, I heard so much about this guy. SO much, I heard he is 'The new 2pac', 'The next God of rap', he is 'bringing a rebirth to hip hop'. COME OFF IT. I listened to 66 songs from him! 66! And not a single one lived up to his 'legendary' status. I told myself, after each monotone, boring, wack song that "Maybe the next one will be better." But it never was! Control is ok, and he is only good when he features on songs, because then he actually has a good beat to rap to. In my opinion he was ruined by bad producers that made horrible beats for him. Go check out the people on RapGenius that annotate his songs as well, they make so reachy explanations because they're all dickriding him. He is not that good.
I agree...I listened to his new album and really thought it was bland and boring. 'Instant classic', my ass. And that 'Hold up, drink' song is possibly the most annoying rap song I have EVER heard in my entire life.
HaHa he is the greatest rapper of this millennium get your list straight toptens

I must be one of those brain-washed.
I consider I used to love H.E. R one of the best tracks ever written.
Best example of concept in using an extended metaphor.

Maybe you are listening with ear plugs. Enough said every one is entitled to their opinion.
This wannabe "conscious" rapper is an atrocious hypocrite. His rhyme scheme is repetitive and BORING as hell. All he talks about are about how he is "hip hop", just to distract listeners from his god awful flow and bland lyrics. I mean they suck hard. Just completely generic bull. Not entertaining AT ALL. How can this turtleneck soft rapper be even considered a legend is beyond me. He doesn't talk about anything, he's one of the worst rappers to hit the mic. A complete disgrace to music. Just one listen on a song by Common and you'll see how repetitive and boring he actually is. Totally overrated, in every sense of the word. Lupe and Nas are WAY more conscious than this joke of a rapper could ever be. Enough said, this guy is a clown. His songs are mindless, repetitive, weak-ass insignificant drivel. And anybody who considers him good are brain-washed, stupid ass, useless "hip hop" heads; who wouldn't know piss from lemonade.

Banks only looks good by comparison because when your rapping with terrible rappers like young buck,50 Cent, and Yayo your bound to look pretty good compared to them. His first solo album was about average his second was a little bit above average and like I said he only looked good on beg for mercy cause of the wack rappers he was dealin with making an average lyricist like banks look great by comparison.
Lloyd Banks is underrated and so is Young Buck he isn't terrible at all!

One of the first guys to do gangster rap, but when you listen to his songs, you can't really hear what's going on to his voice. He is a good rapper, but definitely not the person guys think he is

86L-Boy

87Eazy-E
I'm sorry, but Eazy-E isn't anything special. He had nice flow but he never even wrote his own lyrics or released albums as good as Dr Dre's and Ice Cube's albums. The fact that Soulja Boy is on this list is plain stupid, nobody listens to him anymore, I've never heard him on the radio in a long time, the people that like mainstream rubbish aren't stupid enough to even download a Soulja Boy song illegally, let along buy his CDs.

Nas is actually pretty underrated, he may have a huge fanbase but he doesn't get the respect he deserves on TV or on radio. Eminem should be number 2, I'm a huge fan of Eminem but Eminem is way overrated, 2Pac is number 1. Lil Wayne will be forgotten in 20 years time, so I don't really care about him.
Not writing your own lyrics is usually looked at as being a big no no. Still Eazy E got away with it. Not only didn't he write his lyrics, but his flow was even that good. Outside of some nice beats, his material doesn't hold up that well. Eazy had two things going for his reputation. He's old school, and he's dead.
He actually didntd even rap all at once, if you watch the NSA documentary, they say that he recorded boyz n the hood one line at a time plus he gets away with not writing his lyrics, and is even considered th GOAT not even top 30

This guy isn't a rapper. He is the entropeneur of rap and an embassador. He is an icon in rap history. He might of laid down a few rhymes but he's a producer first, rapper second

As a rapper he isn't any good but usually gets called a great rapper even though he didn't write his own lyrics.

2pac isn't overrated. He earned every bit of respect that he got. He's about number 6 on the greatest rappers ever list.
Tupac is one of the greatest Artist of all time, And I saw his slighty under-rated in this generation.
Although he's good, and clearly so much better than the top 5 on this list (he has nothing on Eminem, and Em shouldn't even be on this list because he deserves his rating as the G.O.A. T (greatest of all time)), he is just too overrated. That said, I'd still have him in my top 10 rappers of all time (probably around 6th place)

90Nas
Oh, I want to go at mos definitely to. I'm sick of this corny rebellion against nothing. What is mos definitely fighting? Nothing at all he just wants to sound "conscious" so he pulls out the old boring afro-beat style and rebels I guess. These black panther rappers suck its that simple. Dead Prez just might be the worst rap group of all time but because there political they get away with having no talent. Mos definitely is crap. He wants the fame and fortune its a fact he isn't doing rap for anything else just like all the rappers these internet hip-hop heads seem to despise mos definitely and nas are just as terrible.

Thank you for finally saying jay-z is better than mos definitely and nas and all these other frauds. Jay-Z has left these conscious clowns in the dust with his practical attitude to music and life jay-z is a better rapper in every shape, way, and form than nas. I really don't get what peoples problem with jay-z is. Whats so bad about being a businessman and making that money. Jay-z has done much more for the hood than nas has done. All nas does is stomp his feet, whine, and complain about how he has it so hard and how he deals with racism so much and every non-black panther afro-beat loser like him is just a slave to the white man. Give me a break nas doesn't know anything about struggle. He got signed as a teenager he was living in a nice home in a clean neighborhood by his 17th birthday. Nas is successful in tricking both white and black people to buy his records, for one he does not hate white people, but come buy his album and sit through and hour or so of me dogging your race and everything about it. So the panther brothers can feel it. He is a great marketer in that sense. If he was truly this guy he wants black people to think he is than why doesn't he go full out racist with no apologies like Paris or the lench mob? Cause he wants to sell to anyone wanting to give the appearance of being political not just black people. Jay-Z offered nas the opportunity to battle him but what did nas do? He cowered out made some excuse and kept doing his typical whoa is me I'm a 30 year old millionaire but I have it so hard crap. Nas shoulda went away after it was written but people still want to keep him in the game cause they think he's dope. Jay-Z raps circles around this guy, its that simple. The reason nas is considered a good lyricist is because the bland generic style nas uses is associated with being a good lyricist. Jayz is a true lyricist, he is a master at wordplay, a good storyteller, and a hot punchline rapper. What isn't real about what he's talking about it makes sense its practical. Nas is a rappin Dale Gribble all he has been for years is a fake poet with no mic skills. It was written era nas was wearing silk shirts and talking about the mafia and Cubans just like jay-z had been doing nas swagger jacked him. What is different from lil wayne than nas? Lil Wayne is actually better at least he's keepin his music entertaining and not mindlessly talking about conspiracies and stuff he knows nothing about. He talks about sex, cars, drugs and stuff like that. Things nas knows more about than the government's make believe plots to destroy black America. Jay-z should be a idol for the black community, look at his empire. Whats not real about it. Jay-z is one of the most successful black men in America he is a big name world withe and nas is just making a couple of bucks off idiots who think there smart cause they got a couple of political rap songs on there ipod.
Nas should shut his mouth he's a fraud and needs to go away.
In fact if you look at typical polls nas usually finishes higher than jay-z on best rapper polls aimed at the pop crowd

He is a overrated hypocrite. He called jay-z a stan? Said jay-z copied his style? Get outta here he sounded just like a jay-z wannabe for years, nas wanted his career to turn out how jay-zs has not the other way around he's got 0 personality he seems much more plastic and phony than jay-z. The only classic album nas has ever done was illmatic, his only good album after illmatic was stillmatic, an overrated album itself. Nastradomous is the worst album of all time, I am... Was garbage, his efforts after stillmatic have been terrible. Nas should retire I'm sick of him trying to be some kinda hero in the black community because he is not. No one is paying attention to him its that simple. He should go away that fool wouldn't make my top 100 I'm tired of fake intellectuals like nas polluting hip-hop. Nas got a middle school education I bet he can barely read and he thinks he's an intellectual.
Jay-Z>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Nas-There is a giant gap between the two. Nas got one hot album I agree with jay-z. I dare anyone to listen to street dreams and tell me that wasn't selling out. He goes on his hip-hop is dead crusade and he helped kill it with wack records and badly swaggerjacking jay-z for a good 6 years? Naw but he is way better. Jay-z won the beef I will never be able to win this argument but nas lied on "ether".

Jay-Z did not say he was better than big, he said he was the closest one. Nas talks bad about women just as much if not more than jay-z, all nas did was play the "I'm a good guy and jay-z is evil" thing and it worked unfortunately.
Ohh and I don't even think jay-z is the greatest I was just comparing him to nas and how jay-z is miles ahead of nas and nas is the overrated one. Rakim is definitely the greatest of all time.
Nas does not even deserve to be mentioned on a list like this. He has done far too much throughout his career to be called overrated, as Illmatic can attest to. That album is a work of pure genius, and to call the man that made the best hip hop album ever overrated is short sighted.
Are you stupid? Why is nas on this list?

You're out of your mind kid. Biggie is timeless, he is/was the greatest of all time. He has a limited collection due to being murdered but what he put out in his time is better than anything else out out by anyone.
Most overrated rapper ever, even more than Jay-Z. He was had an exceptional flow, but when it came to making songs he had a limited amount of topics that he could talk about. For this reason, I could never consider him one of the greatest rappers of all time like many people do. Ready to Die and Life After Death are both regarded as classic albums, however I just don't see that. I believe Biggie got more acclaim than he deserved because of his famous feud with 2pac. I believe Tupac was a far better emcee, who had much more artistic abilities. Christopher Wallace to me, no fault of his own was the begging of rap begging to sell out on a large scale. Puffy made him into a New York icon and household name, but I just don't believe his skill holds up the mantle of the greatest rapper ever as so many people want to claim.
