Most Overrated Hip-hop Albums of All Time

The Contenders: Page 2XW

21The Eminem Show - Eminem

How is this overrated, this is Eminem's best album!

Whaaat? If the Marshall Mathers LP was a classic, the Eminem Show is... Uhh... You know. A great follow-up? It shouldn't be on here

22The Blueprint - Jay-Z

Jay-Z is okay and this album are decent but really overrated, I agree with the below user that the only real classic on the album us Renegade and that's because Eminem dropped one of his best verses on it, no credit to Jay whatsoever. - WonkeyDude98

Jay-Z and this album are terribly overrated, the only song that is classic on this album is Renegade and that's mainly thanks to Eminem.

23Hip Hop Is Dead - Nas

Very overrated album. While Nas is my favorite artist of all time, this album was not good, yet it was praised by critics. - TheMusicNerd

24The Pinkprint - Nicki Minaj

Anaconda is on it. All she wants is sex with boys in the album. Well I'm a boy, no offense and I hate her. I hate anaconda as well. Nicki fans snap out of it. This album is overrated. Best thing for payback, I'll put her in a pit of dangerous anacondas. That'll teach her. Also, don't twerk. It's so so inappropriate for kids, teens, adults and elders. Even people from Trinidad hate her. Because she is plastic. I repeat "she is plastic."

It had plenty of good songs...EXCEPT ANACONDA - Hotheart123

25Take Care - Drake

Yes the production is good, but Drake is just very corny.

26Tha Carter - Lil Wayne

This album is worth nothing, he doesn't make sense with his lyrics, his flow is bad, all he he has is nice beats.

The album had some good songs (earthqauke and go dj also more) but the lyrical skills is average there just catchy this will be the closets lil wayne will ever get to having a classic

27Reasonable Doubt - Jay Z

According to this list, every classic album is overrated.

This List Is A Bunch Of Crap. Why The Heck Are The 3 Jay Z Albums That Are Actually Good (Reasonable Doubt, The Black Album And The Blueprint) On This List? - 12cc

Every single classic album is overrated in this list. This list is just full of any rapper's harers

28Zakhar Nameh - Zedbazi

Exactly Why Is A Persian Album Even On This List? No One Can Even Understand What There Even Rapping About(Apart From Farsi Speaking People).And It's Not Even Overrated Because No One In Iran Even Buys Music. It's All Free Downloads. Now To The Album Itself :
it's A Pretty Good Album But It's A Bit Electropopish But It's Got Good Raps, Good Rhymes Etc. And People Don't Even Pay Attention To It So It's Technically Not Overrated.

29Jangale Asfalt - Hichkas
30Anjam Vazife - Hichkas
31Magna Carta, Holy Grail - Jay-Z
32Mastermind - Rick Ross

Ricky Rosa sucks. Anything created by him is no worth a cent.

In my opinion, Rock Ross is super lame and uncreative.

33VYP: Voice of the Young People - Lil Mama

The most overrated piece of garbage I have ever listen to in my 14 years if living! The beats are horrible, through out the whole album all she raps about is make up products and tour buses. Which also comes along with crappy music video's that make you lose eye vision, and also comes with the consequences of eternal ear bleeding cause by her high pitched cracky hyena voice coming out of that ugly hole of hers she calls a mouth. Luckily people who know REAL hip hop when they hear it had enough sense to to not buy the album.

This album is an absolute embarrassment!

34I'm Gay (I'm Happy) - Lil B

How did this get positive reviews from critics? - TheMusicNerd

35Marshall Mathers LP 2

This is Eminem's most underrated album. It has a lot of his best songs on here, such as Bad Guy, Headlights, and Legacy. - WonkeyDude98

In my opinion Rap God is overrated but that doesn't make it a bad song. It's six minutes straight of Shady. That's good.

Save the lyrics it's good. The beats sucks!
