42 Machine Gun Kelly Machine Gun Kelly George Francis Barnes Jr., better known as "Machine Gun Kelly", was an American gangster from Memphis, Tennessee, during the prohibition era.

MGK is godly; good lyrics, beats are always on point, plus he can rap even if he's not from a place that shoots everyone up

Worst rapper looks a like a bum with white hair and he's ugly too

Just, bad. Only Invincible is good.

Trash and not a rapper.

43 Lupe Fiasco Lupe Fiasco Wasalu Muhammad Jaco (born February 16, 1982), better known by his stage name Lupe Fiasco, is an American rapper, record producer, and entrepreneur. He rose to fame in 2006 following the success of his debut album, Lupe Fiasco's Food & Liquor. He also performs as the frontman of rock band Japanese Cartoon more.

Lupe, criminally under-rated, get him off this list!

Lupe is like the Albert Einstein of rap, he shouldn't be on this list.

How could he be on this list... What

Maybe someone started running out of overrated rappers and had never heard of Lupe and so added him here... I mean this is a joke right?

44 Tyga Tyga Tyga is a rapper that was born November 19, 1989. He was popular in 2012 and is best known for dating Kylie Jenner while she was still a minor.

How come this guy is not even on the list? He is so overrated! He can't rap at all because he can't rhyme or have any flow at all!

Not a rapper. A self admitted rich kid from the burbs. No respect for the art of hip hop. Trash just like the rest of Young Money.

Obviously he is trash, but what does being from the burbs have to do with anything? Lol - Themusicman

Should be #1 Tyga sucks at everything. - JakeNasty92

He made a song about having intercourse with his underage girlfriend. Hmm...

46 Big L Big L Lamont 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

48 Ice Cube Ice Cube O'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

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.

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

59 E-40 E-40 Earl 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.
