61Bizzy Bone

Bizzy is the top 6 greatest of all time you dumb ass you just don't listen to him. Before you say some stupid like that. How can you say something when you don't listen to him? - JCchrom3

Bizzy bone is good before eazy e died after eazy e died bizzy went down hill... Still bizzy bone has the darkest and most murderous lyrics out there.

He is pretty good and all but he is currently fourth on the greatest rapper list? I don't even think bizzy is worthy of the top 50

This guy never need to pick up the mic again. ST LOUIS Is back in the shadows

The last time I saw Nelly he was doing a cereal commercial l think (cherios). This cat need to just sit back and wait for a 20 year rap B E T award show. That's the only time we need to see him holding a mic.

He should have been stopped rapping a long time ago. He's so old.

Dude, your like 50 years old. GET OFF MY T. V SCREEN.

Weed, violence. Repetitive ass flow no lyrical ability but I can't say he hasn't had some catchy moments. Overrated for sure.

Disagree. His raps are hilarious, with weird wordplay. I cannot relate whatsoever, and the beats are usually amazing.

Birdman is more of a crook/creative rapist. Ask Lil Wayne

I think birdman is more of a business man than rapper.

Name 1 person with hopes and dreams who has listened to an entire Birdman album, Don't worry. I'll wait

Only makes random noises throughout all of his songs.

He has life in prison, unless someone pays $1 million for his bond. So no need to be hating on him.

He's been selling crack since like the fifth grade

68CommonLonnie Rashid Lynn, Jr., better known by his stage name Common, is an American hip hop recording artist, actor, film producer and poet from Chicago, Illinois.

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.

Played out and his lyrics are terrible

Common's cool

70Hurricane Chris

I'm so glad this guy does not create music anymore. He had little 7 year old's on the playground singing a bay bay.

Hurricane had a nice style but his lyrics need work

I'm so glad this guy dissapeared like 8 years ago. But who know's, one day he might show up out of no where and start singing that one hit wonder " A bay bay" song.

Oh no z-ro the crooked the realist rapper out the south right now, guess you can't relate to that life KOTG

I'm tired of hearing about this wanna be gangster rapper who all he talks about being one deep

72Lloyd Banks

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!

74Immortal TechniqueFelipe Andres Coronel, better known by the stage name Immortal Technique, is an American rapper and urban activist from Lima, Peru.

Not exactly a mainstream rapper. Hard to be overrated when you're not that well known, outside of a niche fanbase. I find the conspiracy theory content in many of his lyrics kind of silly, but I respect the man for at least rapping with passion and anger.

He's only known for one (maybe two) songs.

Immortal technique is not a bad rapper. Come on you guys

We are not talking bad rapper, this is a list of rappers that get way more hype than they deserve

75Method Man

He's best when singing hooks and he does this well. He also drops the occasional gem on a verse and is excellent as a guest rapper. He should just never get top 10 consideration at all.

The most arrogant rapper I have ever seen in any interview ever. The guy acts like everyone needs to rise up to his level. It's absolutely ridiculous.

79A$AP RockyRakim Mayers, better known by his stage name ASAP Rocky, is an American rapper, record producer, director and actor from Harlem, New York.

I consider myself a fan of A$AP Rocky but subject matter is simple. Can't say he hasn't had creative moments but he's still very overrated.
