82SilentoRicky Lamar Hawk, better known by his stage name Silentó, is an American rapper and has associted with Ellen DeGeneres and Aidan M Dove.

Silento is a disgrace to rap. He made a song that uses about 10-15 words. He didn't write this song either. He's not a rapper.

Silent isn't a rapper he's a one hit wonder there is no actual rap in the song watch me

His one hit song is a musical list of dances.

Haha silento

84DJ Khaled

DJ Khaled is a DJ not a rapper. Those soy milk commercials should make him #1 on a list he doesn't belong on because he is that lame.

Like his name says. He a DJ, not a rapper. Learn who& what they are

He's not a rapper, he just shouts "DJ KHALED! " on all of his songs.

I'm not saying that he is good, but he's not a rapper

Earl Sweatshirt talks about somethin real in all his songz. he occasionally makes stupid songs with Tyler but those are funny

Earl isn't overrated, he's amazing! Y'all don't know real rap, Lil B is more overrated than him. - KylePeake

87Biggie SmallsChristopher George Latore Wallace, better known by his stage name, The Notorious B.I.G (a.k.a. Biggie Smalls), is consistently ranked as one of the best rappers of all time. The Notorious B.I.G was born May 21, 1972, he was born in Brooklyn, New York. At the age of 24 The Notorious B.I.G was murdered more.

Is this a joke biggie overrated?!?!?

He gets called the greatest rapper of all time just because he's dead. At least he has an interesting voice and some interesting lyrics.

Biggie is not overrated and it is a disgrace that people compare him to mediocre artists like Eminem and Tupac.. RIP BIG

Biggie is one of the best rappers to ever live

88Machine Gun KellyGeorge 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.

89EunhyukLee Hyuk-jae, better known by his stage name Eunhyuk, is a South Korean singer-songwriter, dancer and actor.

This guy can't even rap. Go youtube his rap videos, and you will see how bad he is. Only super junior fans think he can actually rap. Delusional

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

Terrible! How did this guy ever become famous for rapping? His metal band is better.

Overrated now. His acting is boring, he gets on T.V. shows, and doesn't shut up. He didn't have to play a cop forever, and he expects us to believe he's some street guy. He left the street a LONG time ago, and the woman he picked, well, no comment...

How is he overrated

91Eazy-EEric Lynn Wright better known by his stage name "Eazy-E", was an American rapper who performed solo and in the hip hop group N.W.A. He is affectionately called "The Godfather of Gangsta Rap". He was born to Richard and Kathie Wright in Compton, California. On March 26, 1995 Eazy-E dies from complications more.

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.

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 T.V. 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.

Overrated? Probably the MOST unique voice in rap history - the sound of a child (one friend said he sounded like a grandma) that will hurt you. Eazy E has one of the scariest voices in rap history, and if everything was written for him, and not changed at all, and I seriously doubt that, he definitely put his own personality into it.

He had a ghostwriter but he's still good

93KRS One

I now realize the kind of retard that made this list if rakim, big l and krs one are on this list and how is immortal technique on this on the most underrated rappers list on this site he's number 1

This man just put all the popular rappers on here not seeing of they were talented or not. I was with you in the beginning but Rakim and KRS? Come on man

No one talks about him now, but he should've been overrated at the time. He was grating, acting like he was the teacher we all needed, and his voice was usually shouting. Not a fan.

I like krs one... Most of the times. but he speaks about justice and racism while he hates white people!

94Young ThugJeffrey Lamar Williams, better known by his stage name Young Thug, is an American rapper from Atlanta, Georgia. He became known for his commercial debut single "Stoner." Notable Albums/Mixtapes: Barter 6, Slime Season, Slime Season 2, I'm Up, Slime Season 3

He doesn't even speak English. Worst rapper of all time by far. Lil' Wayne had at least one good song.

Worst rapper ever. He is so crap that Bill Gates wanted to give him 7 mil to stop making rap music

I'm tired of hearing about this wack ass rapper. He has a horrible flow and is a awful lyricist.

He isn't a rapper he is the worse

95G Eazy

You don't understand. He's a very good artist and I'm pretty sure u haven't listened to "Achievement" "Opportunity Cost" "I mean it" "Marilyn" "Far Alone" "Rebel" "Lady Killers" "Kings". He's a good rapper honestly if u ACTUALLY listen to his music.

Underrated because he can't rap. All he does is speak.

He's an absolute baller and great lyricist. But not overrated. He is wayyy underrated.

I admit I'm a big logic fan and I admit lots of his fans including me love every song he makes he does get a little to much hype from fans

Logic is the best rapper to ever exist, period.

Better than every rapper. The young Jesus
