43Big LLamont Coleman (May 30, 1974 – February 15, 1999), best known by his stage name Big L, was an American hip hop recording artist, born and raised in Harlem, New York City, New York. Coleman embarked on his career in rapping, with the hip hop trio, Three the Hard Way. His first notable appearance came more.

To me big l was a grate rapper if he was still alive he would put lots of rappers in the shade he had a very great flow for rap and he was way better than jay Z.

Why is he even on this list? If he was still alive then maybe there wouldn't be so many overrated rappers like the ones listed above. Big L is definitely not overrated. In fact, in my opinion, he is one of the most underrated rappers out there!

Big L is definitely UNDERRATED. He died before the world could recognize how great he is. If he was alive a little longer when Flamboyant could take off, I am so sure he would be up there with Tupac and Biggie. Him being on this list is just so disrespectful to him and his art. Just take a listen to any of his songs

One of the best rappers of all time

44Ice CubeO'Shea Jackson, born June 15, 1969, known by his stage name Ice Cube, is an American rapper, record producer, actor, and filmmaker. He began his career as a member of the hip-hop group C.I.A. and later joined the seminal gangster rap group N.W.A. After leaving N.W.A in December 1989, he built more.

Ice cube is one of the best rappers ever

Made it with pure youthful talent, a phenomenal rich baritone, and a real hunger for pointing out injustice. Unfortunately, after Amerikkkas Most Wanted, the best was over. Proves again that talent often comes from the middle class, not total poverty. He could get an overrated rating just lately for acting like Straight Outta Compton was equal to the greats like Jimi Hendrix and Louis Armstrong, and sorry, but it isn't, and if it is, what followed it certainly wasn't even close.

I agree I don't know what these people are thinking

Really, ice cube is the 5th best rapper of all time

47Lil BBrandon Christopher McCartney, professionally known as Lil B and often known as The BasedGod, is an American rapper, record producer, author, activist and motivational speaker from Berkeley, California.

There's a video on YouTube of him being knocked out by some dude because he wouldn't call Soulja Boy lol. And not a rapper by the way.

Hated by many so he is not overrated.

How is the Based God on here? This is a disgrace he's amazing!

He shouldn't even be on this list. He'll murder anybody in a cypher or freestyle battle. Do your research fools!

Really? Anyone? In a rap battle? Don't make man go back to culture clash, bbk destroyed asap mob.

HORSE FACE! And not a rapper.

50Chris BrownChristopher Maurice "Chris" Brown (born May 5, 1989) is an American singer, songwriter, dancer and actor. Born in Tappahannock, Virginia, he was involved in his church choir and several local talent shows from a young age. He is most well known for his physical assault towards the singer Rihanna in more.

So bad he ends up on "worst rappers of all time" when he's an R&B singer.

The rap verse on "Look at me now" was subpar

He's an R&B singer who has attempted to rap. He's not a rapper though.

You bastard you should have your dick cut of

More like underrated. He's an amazing rapper and has one of the best labels out there

Another one of these weirdo ass "rappers".

I like his music he is a little over ratef and at the same time he underrated ask 10 people who he is no body will know him or any of his coworkers

Of course no one talks about him much. He's an independent rapper. And he does a GREAT job at that. If anything, he's UNDERRATED. Not at all overrated. - Antwon

57E-40Earl Stevens better known by his stage name E-40, is an American rapper, entrepreneur, and investor from Vallejo, California.

Y'all need to go back to the E40 in the 90's. This man invented most of the slang these young punks are speaking now. He has a very unorthodox style of rapping that is off the hook. Most of his new is banging too. E40 made mob music, you can ride and smoke to. He's one of the greatest West Coast rappers of all time, lyrically!

If he is so terrible then why does his influence show on all modern rap? Hell most modern rappers give him credit for being one of the greatest.

This guy can mess up a song. You will have an instant piece of crap song. Get him on the track

Never understood the love for E-40. He's always been garbage to me.
