Tons of autotune. Although I must admit Sicko Mode was a guilty pleasure of mine. - DarkBoi-X

Autotune, autotune, autotune and more autotune! No real talent, his music is just randomness and nothing worth hearing.

He just has catchy songs, but he is not a good lyricist at all. - DaWyteNight

Autotune! - TheArtOfBars

J.I.D murdered him on his own song

Nah, he kicks ass. - DarkBoi-X

He is pretty mediocre, no wonder why fans of him also tend to like rappers like ski mask the slump god.

Look, I've given this guy a chance, but he's honestly not very good and even so far as trash.

She is retarded. Not as retarded as retardi b but still very retarded. - TheArtOfBars


My god shes terrible whats worse is that they think 1 or 2 "good" songs make her a good artist and makes up for the bad songs she has (Which is pretty much all of them) so yeah shes one of the worst musicans of all time if you can even call her one. - christangrant

She's a good rapper people think are bad - ProPanda

He sucks so bad it's not even funny. Listening to him rap is so painful because he always says the same thing and he is so very slow at it. People say Birdman is painful to listen to because he raps slow, but this guy is worse. - TheArtOfBars

He is literally terrible. He says the same thing in every verse, and he is so very slow at it, it is so painful to listen to him. I'd honestly rather listen to Gucci Mane, at least Gucci doesn't sound like he's rapping while he's on the toilet. - DaWyteNight

TERRIBLE rapper! - RobertWisdom

Great news for hip hop fans: Young Jeezy announced that after his next album, he will be retiring from rap! Can I get an Amen? Thank the heavens! Everybody rejoice!

Bad rapper but I'd still smash though

Maybe not after she revealed that she hasn't showered in two weeks though. - DaWyteNight

Come on people, maybe she isn't necessarily a great rapper but she's definitely not as horrible as y'all make it out to be - StarlightSpanks

Yeah she is, listen to her older songs like Stripper Ho before she had a ghostwriter - DaWyteNight

She sucks.

I don't know who is more retarded, retardi b herself or people who think she has talent! - TheArtOfBars

10 Fabolous

This man is a bore to listen to. He ruins any song he is featured in with his lazy, uninspired bad puns about absolutely nothing. I'm so glad hip hop left this guy in the early 2000's where he belongs. I'm pretty sure this guy inspired other boring rappers who rap about absolutely nothing in the most generic way, such as Wale and Big Sean. So garbage! - TheArtOfBars

He is actually terrible, why is this even a debate?

I don't get the hype, I've listened to his song Nuketown and it wasn't even that good. All he did was yell in a weird voice. - CharismaticKat

After West's parents divorced, him and his single mother moved to Chicago, Illinois. At the age of 10, West temporarily moved to Nanjing, China, because his mother was teaching more.

If you say he's good, then you're basically saying using ghostwriters is okay. - DaWyteNight

Wait how is he higher than Iggy - Genesyis

I don't get why people like him so much. He's such a joke. The only song I like by him is Heartless and that's it. - CharismaticKat

This guy calls himself the "Greatest Rockstar that ever lived" then goes and forgets the lyrics to Bohemian Rhapsody oh yeah he's truly the greatest Rockstar of all time (sarcasm) - christangrant

18 Missy Elliott Missy Elliott Melissa Arnette Elliott is an American musician, hip hop recording artist, dancer and record producer.

She's more of an artist than an emcee. Her music and production was dope but lyrically? No. - RobertWisdom

She sucks, like bad. How did people actually accept her as a good artist? I guess it's just cause "she's black and she's female" give me a break!

We can thank this woman for all the horrible female rappers we have nowadays. I get that her music was "fun" and "empowering for women" but I just can't take her seriously as an MC. - DaWyteNight

She sucks - ILikeSexyGirls

He's definitely overrated, but he isn't a bad rapper. - DaWyteNight

Because lots of people call him a top 5 lyricist or top 5 best rapper of all time and he isn't that good in terms of his lyrics or his flow, there are just a lot of better lyricists than him in my opinion. - DaWyteNight

21 Rick Ross Rick Ross William Leonard Roberts II, better known by his stage name Rick Ross, is an American rapper and entrepreneur.

Sorry guys it's Rick Ross - DaLizts

What? The legendary Rick Ross who has one of the most consistent discographies in hip hop, with 15 classics under his belt?

22 Jadakiss Jadakiss

Only idiotic Eminem worshippers who for the thousandth time, KNOW ABSOLUTELY NOTHING ABOUT HIP-HOP say Jadakiss is bad. The Hip-Hop community says Jada's one of the greats and is one of the most respected. People who think Eminem thinks the only rapper think Jadakiss is bad. Who's right? Hip-Hop community or delusional Eminem fans? - RobertWisdom

Kiss the Game Goodbye? How about "Kiss Jada Goodbye", because no one in their right mind should be forced to listen to this man for an entire album.

He's honestly very overrated in the hip hop community, and I am not even a Eminem fan. He's just not that good, some people call him 'top 5 dead or alive' nope, no way. That's laughable.

This guy literally sucks so bad I'm not even joking! Just listen to one of his verses for yourself and you'll know what I'm talking about.

Da hell? This guy is one of the best lyricists in hip hop today along with Sage the Gemini. Who put him on here?

He's overhated, most people don't think he's good. He isn't the most skilled rapper but he can actually spit when he wants to in songs like Never, Why You Up In Here, Live Your Life remix, Act Like You Know, Rewind, Gotta Eat for example. He isn't as skilled as Pitbull, but he isn't complete trash either he just chooses to make catchy pop-rap music instead and it works for him. - DaWyteNight

He has so many hits

They literally crossed the line when they put Flo Rida here! He is like the realest lyricist.

Raised in Compton, California, Lamar embarked on his musical career as a teenager under the stage name K-Dot, releasing a mixtape that garnered local attention and led to his signing with indie record label Top Dawg more.

He is a good rapper, it's just that his music sucks.

He's overrated as hell, but he isn't bad. It's just that since he's become mainstream he doesn't even try very hard and he gets away with it. Just listen to Overly Dedicated and Section.80 and then go listen to GKMC and DAMN to see his huge drop in quality. - DaWyteNight

"Overrated overhyped mediocrity that the masses eat up" is better than Flo Rida's overrated, overhyped awfulness that the masses eat up for sure! - RobertWisdom

Get him off the list

32 XXXTentacion XXXTentacion Jahseh Dwayne Onfroy (born January 23, 1998), known professionally as XXXTentacion, and often referred to as X, is an American rapper, singer and songwriter.

...I get it, his death is horrible, but that doesn't make him a good artist.
It's not even just his manipulative, lazy lyrics, it's also the production of the songs that's also godawful.
And if you want a non-manipulative song that still sucks hard listen to "LOOK AT ME! "
(Ready for a bunch of threats from kids who think his death automatically makes him a good rapper) - StarlightSpanks

33 The Notorious B.I.G. The Notorious B.I.G. Christopher George Latore Wallace, born May 21, 1972, better known by his stage name The Notorious B.I.G (sometimes Biggie Smalls or just simply Biggie), is an American rapper from Brooklyn, New York. On March 9, 1997, he was murdered in a drive by shooting in Los Angeles, California at the age of only more.

One of the most overrated, overhyped, basic, average, mediocre rappers of all time. I've said it before and I'll say it again, the only reason why Biggie Smalls worked was because of the bangin' production on his albums. Dumb people will always say otherwise and say no, it was his lyrics and flow that made his albums so great, but I kid you not if he had been rapping over slightly less exciting beats, those same people would call him boring and mediocre. He was not that lyrical, and his flow was nothing too special. People always complain about how today's rappers only rap about money, cars, clothes and hoes, but newsflash, that's what your favorite overrated rapper Biggie Smalls did to. So Biggie influenced all the money/hoes rap we have today, how yall like that? Even A$AP Rocky is a better rapper rapper than Biggie, he has better flow, more topic variety, better lyrics and better music. But the same people who love Biggie will call Asap trash and say he only raps about money and ...more

He's actually really bad, I don't know what people see in him. Nas could destroy this joker with just one bar, and Illmatic was good not just for it's production but also for it's lyrics, unlike Biggie's ready to die which was only good for it's phat beats and catchy hooks. Illmatic still holds up and gets praised to this day, but who the hell still bangs Ready to Die or Life After Death?

Fat, overrated, disgusting, disturbing, worthless, childish, degrading, no talent. Plus, I'm pretty sure this guy was a closet homosexual which is frowned upon in hip hop. He also rapped about kidnapping and raping children in the butt...yeah...wonderful rapper...very inspirational...gimme a break! At least 2Pac tried to uplift people.

This guy was the beginning of the end of hip hop honestly. He is the definition of commercialized crap.

This guy isn't on the same level as other legendary rappers from his time like Nas. And he's not the God MC, Rakim is the God MC. This guy literally has like 15 albums and people only still talk about three of them to this day, that should say something. He should've retired after the Black Album because other than American Gangster everything after that was crap. - DaWyteNight

45 Pitbull Pitbull Armando Christian Pérez, better known by his stage name Pitbull, is a Grammy (and Latin Grammy) winning Cuban-American rapper, songwriter and record producer.

Good rapper who most people think is bad because they've been listening to the wrong songs. This guy can actually spit when he wants to but he chooses to make pop-rap music instead. He's not nas or K-Rino, but he can actually spit at a higher level than he is given credit for. Listen to Amore, give them what they ask for, hustler's withdrawal, blood is thicker than water, 305 Anthem, melting pot etc. People are probably only hearing him on Usher/Enrique/J-Lo songs which isn't an accurate representation of his skill. - DaWyteNight
