Most Overrated Rappers of All Time

Keep in mind its overrated not the worse. So soulja boy is not overrated because we all know he sucks and the same goes with all these crappy one hit wonders and pop rappers. 50 cent for instance has no respect amoung hip-hop heads these days barring him from consideration for this list and there are many more bad rappers who are famous and sell records but everyone other than the pop crowd knows there garbage. Like fiddy and nelly and Mike Jones we all know there garbage.

Keep in mind you can be good and overrated most overrated rappers are good and some are even great like pac and eminem they just dont deserve greatest ever consideration at all.

The Top Ten Most Overrated Rappers of All Time

1 Lil Wayne Dwayne Michael Carter, Jr. is an American rapper from New Orleans, Louisiana. He was discovered by Brian "Baby" "Birdman" Williams at a very young age, and was signed to Cash Money Records, where he would be one quarter of the rap group Hot Boys. In the years to follow, he would go on to find his own ...read more.

autotune autotune autotune and some more autotune added in there. his lyrics are s*** too. I really dislike him. I don't see how people can stand to listen to him get high and talk for four minutes with an autotuned voice.

He's not overrated, everybody hates him. Overrated does not mean "worst", it means someone or something that is given too much hype and credit.

Wayne claims himself to be "the best rapper alive" But really his rhymes are nowhere near Nas, AZ, GZA, Eminem, Talib Kweli, Immortal technique, Kurupt and many more all of them being still alive

Wayne is definitvly the most overated rapper dead or alive

Look at his fanbase.. Either very young or very phony people, you know you gotta like it to relate to it which explains why phony people like phony rapper

The thing is, he never fell off. You know why? Because he never was good in the first place. This is coming from an avid hip-hop head who was convinced that all the hype surrounding Wayne and how "clever" he was had to lead back to an actual trail. I was wrong, and overestimated people. They really are as simple-minded and stupid as I initially thought. This shameless piece of garbage tainted a genre and its fanbase. I listened to every single Lil Wayne project, from the Block is Hot to his latest... zero displays of true brilliance. Sure, a couple of "Hey, haha, I get it" sort of lines but nothing that transcends this level and is just absolutely shocking and mind altering. Set aside these few good lines, and there's nothing less. Substance? Barely, and when there is some he either:

A) executes it terribly

B) is uninteresting

C) both

Flow? Decent, sometimes it fits, but nothing more, no flows he has spit ever have changed rap or made me ...more

2 Drake Aubrey Drake Graham, known professionally as Drake, is a Canadian rapper, singer, songwriter, record producer and actor, born on October 24, 1986 in Toronto, Canada. He started his career on Canadian reality show "Degrassi: The Next Generation".

Drake has became really poor! Too many love songs and he can't rap! If he's the future 4 rap were all screwed!

he's just awful except for the song forever than he became a disapointment

He is new to the Rap Game. I for one wished he never joined CASH MONEY RECORDS. - Volcadolacious

I would clicked on Lil Wayne, but you all already think he sucks so he's not overrated, nor is Kanye, he's getting better, have you heard Watch the Throne, he annihilates Jay Z on every track, I just wish he'd keep it up instead of stooping to the GOOD music s***. But in the end I decided to pick Drake. He might have been good at first but now he stoops to this YMCMB tradition of rapping about money and pussy. Even his most poetic love song, "Best I Ever Had" was pretty wack around the end, once again rapping about p**** instead of being deep. His verse on Trey Songz, "Unusual" was by far the wackest s*** I ever heard, he's not so great on bed now is he.

Don't get me wrong, his R&B is dope, and I bet he'll improve on his love raps, but for now he is so overrated. He's not a legend yet, stop treating him like one.

3 Kanye West Kanye Omari West is an American rapper, songwriter, and fashion designer. He was born on June 8, 1977 in Atlanta, Georgia. 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 ...read more.

This guy is easily one of the worst rappers I have ever heard in my life. He talks about how he is the "greatest of all time" yet his actual rapping is mediocre at best. His lyrics are plain and mean absolutely nothing besides that he's a "gOd" and even when he tries to write something with actual meaning, it's just fake deep nonsense! The dude barely even has good beats! Most rappers can usually save their songs with amazing beats even without any lyrics with substance but not kanye. Just uses generic, and even outdated beats. And even when they are different, they usually end up sounding ear bleeding! Just listen to his song "On Sight" and tell me that isn't the worst beat you've ever heard in your life. Still I can give him credit that some of his beats are good. But it's uncommon. His creativity in his production does work some of the time. But one of the worst things about him isn't even in his music. It's his arrogant personality and his cancerous fanbase. He acts like an idiot ...more

"You idiots who think he's good should all just burn. He's not only a terrible rapper, but he also butchered Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen and thought he did a good job. He over-rates himself beyond belief and only his idiot fans think he's a genius. How can you be a genius and yet make completely idiotic lyrics about how he could be a god if people let him? That's right- you can't.

People always seem to hype up his upcoming album, and they turn out to be garbage. I don't get his style, as it just seems like he's rapping just to rap. He has stolen any style that has been popular at the time so he stays relevant in the game. He's not even good in my eyes.

Solid producer and while I'd love to give him zero credit at all - maybe second best only to Dre. As far as rapping goes, this dude is just a clown. Everything he does oozes with entitlement, the one concept that should have no place in music. His flow is boring and basically just iambic syncopated syllables and the least creative rhythms imaginable - a shame because it ruins the actual music, which I won't deny is quality. Lyrically, where do you even begin? They don't tend to make sense or carry a consistent message or tell a story. He uses his lyrics to talk to the establishment, a cornerstone in rap, but he's uninformed and generally fairly racist. It's just not good or cohesive. Having a garbage perspective on life make writing real, quality lyrics. He's basically reality T.V. in music form.

4 Jay-Z Shawn Corey Carter, known by his stage name JAY-Z, is an American rapper, record producer, entrepreneur and investor born on December 4, 1969 in Brooklyn, New York. He is best known for his albums Reasonable Doubt, The Blueprint, and The Black Album. He is considered to be one of the best rappers of ...read more.

MOST OVERRATED RAPPER OF ALL TIME, next to ice cube, but seriously, his only good album was Reasonable Doubt, and everything after that sucked. Maybe because he started freestyling his lyrics, but that's no excuse. He steals lyrics, most his songs are about money and hoes, he provides little to no clever lyrics a song, and he considers himself the greatest rapper alive. Maybe it's just me, but any rapper who calls himself the greatest rapper alive his already overrated or just truly sucks (lil wayne), its up to the people to decide who the greatest is and to have their own opinions, this is just mine. Love it or hate it.

Anyone who steals lyrics from other rappers is going to be overrated but how people can like Jay is crazy, especially as he has gone really mainstream now.

I can't believe how he gets away with stealing endless lyrics, lose one of the biggest beefs of all time, be a massive sellout and still be considered one of the best rappers. People always go on about Reasonable Doubt, Blueprint and Black Album and that's it, he has like 15 albums and only 3 are considered really good, that's pretty poor. This guy gets way too much respect.

The most overrated piece of total garbage ever next person who says he's the greatest ever in front of me I'm about to fight I swear not only has he never had a good bar in his life every single song that's good he's ever released was not good because of him it was either the feature on the song or the beat think about it big pimpin was all about the beat and pimp c's verse lost ones was produced by dr dre he's honestly the most garbage rapper ever here's the truth the greatest ever was 2pac its simply fact best flow and best lyrics no else even comes close plus every 2pac verse ever was great not the beat or song all together but what pac says the second is biggie smalls his flow was damn good but honestly people like big more than pac because his voice was cooler he wasn't a better rapper thogu still I bump big every day now after that its just preference but anyone who says that jay z is a the greatest is retarded we didn't even see half as many years from pac or big and got way ...more

5 Eminem Eminem, born Marshall Bruce Mathers III, is an American rapper, actor and music producer born on October 17, 1972 in St. Joseph, Missouri. Eminem has sold over 300 million records making him the bestselling hip-hop artist of all time. In addition to his solo career, he is a member of D12 and (with Royce ...read more.

Most overrated? Nah he's underrated!

He actually is overrated. I'm not saying he sucks, he just gets more credit than he deserves, especially for his mediocre new stuff. The problem is, people that don't know anything about hip hop are voting on this list and the only two rappers they have heard of is the infamously hated Lil Wayne, and the famously loved Eminem.

There are so many other rappers out there like Nas (and that's a more mainstream example) that are arguably more talented than Eminem. The biggest reason he is listened to so much is because white kids like rap too, but they feel that they have to listen to white rappers to relate, and Eminem is the most mainstream and socially acceptable one out there. Em himself has even admitted that if he wasn't white, he wouldn't be half as popular as he is.

Telling a Stan that Eminem isn't the best rapper is like telling a kid that Santa isn't real.

Eminem's two best attributes are is sense of humour and his story telling ability, and he barely uses either of them.

People say he raps about real life... When? What song? Did I miss it?

Unless this world is full of; wife beating, wannabe psychos, with an imaginary personality disorder, then I don't see how he is relatable.

Since encore, he's had the odd good song, but the rest is just "Til I Collapse" re-written in different rhyme schemes and put back over a new beat.

His ability to rhyme is second to none... Not necessarily because others can't do it, more that others don't bother or need to... But with that said, it still deserves merit and credit given where its due.

If rap was an athletic sport, Eminem would be the best rapper ever, just for going that extra mile... But it isn't... It's a poetic art form, one he uses to fight invisible ...more

Dear all those who believe Eminem isn't overrated... You're all stupid.

He is a main stream chart rapper for chavs and people who don't appreciate good rap. Eminem is the single handed reason why the wider majority of people believe rap is bad music. Furthermore, all those who believe his lyrics are so "deep" and have "deep meaning", you're just as idiotic also! If you want deep. meaningful lyrics then listen to the likes of Pink Floyd! In addition to, his record "rap god" isn't even that fast and all those who believe its talented ; listen to the likes of Mac Lethal, Busta Rhymes, Twista, Tech N9ne, Yelawolf etc...

My overall point is that Eminem is incredibly overrated and isn't even a good rapper, despite if his lyrics have "meaning" or not. He is the most mainstream idiot ever! There is better rap out there people, look for it! And if you believe Eminem is a good rapper, you also probably believe that the "Top 40 ...more

If he wasn't white, he would be considered good, and possibly very good, but not even near Nas's stratosphere. I respect his music, but damn, this man is mad overrated. - strategicnuclearmoose

6 Nicki Minaj Onika Tanya Maraj, known professionally as Nicki Minaj (born December 8, 1982) is a Trinidadian/American rapper / pop music artist. Minaj is most known for her songs such as "Anaconda", "Super Bass", "Starships" and her feature on "Bang Bang". ...read more.

The worst rapper on this list. Not only is she awful lyrically but she sounds like a constipated man forcing out words through that ugly hole she calls a mouth. That butt is fake, her nose is fake, her lyrics are fake. The song "stupid hoe" made me die a little on the inside. Shes awful, should be much higher up on this list.

This list is not for the worst rappers. And I don't really consider herself as one, she is different and has an interesting flow. I'm not saying she's the greatest though... - DarkInk

I don't think I can explain how awful she is in one comment- enough said

Do not get me started on how awful she is my grandma raps better than her and she is FOREIGN and the song she wrote stupid hoe well what is SHE.

I don't like her music but she is not overrated as she was never very highly respected to begin with. Has a few decent verses of her own but no one remembers anything she has done since her verse on Kanye's "Monster"

7 50 Cent Curtis James Jackson III, better known by his stage name 50 Cent, is an American rapper, actor, entrepreneur, investor, record, film, and television producer.

50 cent has a good baritone and a good flow. He's a lot more listenable than a lot of the shouters and whiners. He can't be overrated because he's kind of history now.

One stellar album, then sold out HARD. Still has flashes of brilliance here and there, like "Irregular Heartbeat" but mostly super poppy and uncreative - Themusicman

I hate 50 cent period

Okay, first if all, everyone has their signature style of rapping! His is "story-telling" as you put it. At least his raps have meaning in it, and is original in every way! - WaffleTea

50? Story telling? Lol. He just generically spews out gun lines, money, and hoes. Nothing more, nothing less. - RobertWisdom

8 Soulja Boy DeAndre Cortez Way, known professionally as Soulja Boy Tell 'Em, or simply Soulja Boy, is an American rapper, record producer, actor, and entrepreneur.

So overrated its not even funny

I don't find him overrated, I mean nobody even listens to him. He had one hit pop song that one only popular because of the dance, the guys a joke.

I know you said, everyone knows he sucks, but he did hae number one with the worst song of all time

Oh crank that soulja boy till he starts getting treated like he should be I'm not saying he is bad he is just not as good as most rappers so soulja boy is over rates by far he will never be as good as Eminem or snoop dog or Lil Wayne

I hate him but he is not overrated as no rap fans like him. He only sold copies because of mainstream music listeners. - KylePeake2

9 Wiz Khalifa Cameron Jibril Thomaz, better known by his stage name Wiz Khalifa, is an American rapper, songwriter, and actor. He was born on September 8, 1987.

No lyrical ability, Subject matter is horrible, just a Weed
Rapper, how is he below Nas?

He can't rap. I could rap better than him. He ain't even a rapper. He's an idiot - llamaboy17

This meaning less guy is so terrible I turn down the radio the moment I hear this soft voice

Mediocre at best, and at worst his music is utter ear poison. Casein point, Black & Yellow which sounds ironically enough like The Twilight Zone theme, considering the song is about as scary as some of its episodes. And not to mention how his wonderfully diverse topics like cars, smoking pot and how great he is makes him not only mundane as hell, but contributes to rap's current negative image. - Mrveteran

10 Snoop Dogg Cordozar Calvin Broadus Jr., (born, October 20, 1971) known professionally as Snoop Dogg, is an American rapper, actor, record producer, and television personality from Long Beach, California.

He died when he changed to Snoop Lion

Early Stuff was good. Fell of really hard after doggfood witch is his second best work to date. Just listen to his first album with no limit and you will know why he should never be considered a legendary rapper

I used to love the old snoop and now look what he is and does...1. Go from a christian to illuminati devil worshiper...2. Then nation of islam in 2009 for 8 months... Then into snoop lion in august 2012 and change relegion to rastafasrion rasta... Make a song with david guetta that is auto tune singing and was the west coast scene and hanged out with biggie when pac hated him. Who is he? I still love his rap style and old songs...

Literally the most overrated rapper of all time next to Jay-Z. I can't believe people think this guy is any good. His first album was cool and that's literally it. Out of any song, any album he has ever put out. He's not nice, especially compared to the lyricists of our time. People think "oh it's snoop dogg, it must be good rap". Just the opposite my friend. He's just a big face in the game so people overrate him.

The Newcomers

? Blueface
? Lil Nas X

The Contenders

11 Macklemore Ben Haggerty, (born, June 19, 1983) known by his stage name Macklemore and formerly Professor Macklemore, is an American singer and songwriter from Seattle, Washington.

He's not Terrible but people are saying he's the best of all time cause of one song. WHAT! YOU ARE FORGETTING PAC, BIGGIE, SHADY, NAS, DRE, EAZY, ICE. THEY SOLD LOTS OF ALBUMS AND THEY ARE FORGOTTEN!?!? BUT ONE SONG THAT'S NOT MAINSTREAM IS THE BEST OF ALL TIME? No, nope, sorry, yeah no.

His work is not great it's ok. But the big problems I have with him is that many actually underrated artists like immortal technique, Yella wolf, Pro Era, and so on put in much work into what they love. But I'm sure Macklemore had done his fair share of work. But he is overrated, he literally got lucky with Thrift shop one song and many others put much more work out and don't get what they truly do deserve.

SO OVERRATED I CANNOT HANDEL! I met him last summer and he is nothing like the way he paints himself to be! Acts as though he's a down to earth cool kind of guy but really this wouldn't be seen dead wearing thrift shop clothing! Honestly everything he had on was designer and it was like I was too much of a peasant for him to speak t me! He's fake in his music and says what people want him to hear! Think about it guys he's always rapping about issues the world is facing at the time.. nowhere near genuine! IF you listen to Tupac you hear the raw emotion and different moods.. but with mackelmore its always the same thing! Always attempting to reel you in with some sappy story!

My opinion but just think about it guys...

Listen to the whole damn album before you judge Macklemore. I used to think his stuff was okay, Thrift Shop was good but not amazing (talked about materialism and consumerism, had a great beat, and clever rhymes). Then I listened to Neon Cathedral, White Walls, One Thousand Hours, Same Love, Wings, Jimmy Iovine, and A Wake. Seriously, his stuff rocks.

12 T.I. Clifford Joseph Harris, Jr., better known by his stage names T.I. and Tip, is an American hip hop recording artist and actor born on September 25, 1980 in Atlanta, GA.

He ain't over-rated, he's a rapper from the south who people know him for songs like: Live your Life or Whatever you Like. If its anything, I think he's an rapper who deserves more credit

T. I tell stories with his music he deserves more credit than yall giving him. REAL LIFE STORIES

I still have TI struggle music when he was TIP and only the hood listen. TI now is jingle rapper no heart just another I made rapper. Just making a pay check rapper

T.I. is NOT overrated. He is way underrated if you think he is a "bubblegum pop rapper not a real emcee".

13 Ludacris Christopher Brian "Chris" Bridges, better known by his stage name Ludacris, is an American rapper, entrepreneur, and actor.

I don't understand how this guy ranks that high on people's goat lists, he's honestly a pretty disappointing rapper as a whole. He had potential, but he wasted most of it all on his trash music and garbage lyrics. Basically a harder version of Lil Wayne, a punchline rapper with no substance or storytelling ability.

He Was In The Worst Song In History Which Was Justin Bieber's Baby

Overrated for his lyricism which honestly isn't that great. Punchline rappers are honestly the worst kind of rappers, just look at Lil Wayne. You need more than punchlines and shock value to be a good lyricist.

His name explains his game

I have disagree with you, but even I have to admit, that's a pretty good burn right there. - Lasvegasxavier

14 Chief Keef Keith Cozart, better known by his stage name Chief Keef, is an American rapper and record producer from Chicago, Illinois.

I'm embarrassed he is even a rapper people have heard of

He needs to take a shower, brush his teeth, and pull his pants up before he even says anything.

He's an embarrassment to my race. I mean, yo! You know just about everyone in america is close minded and believe whatever the media tells them.

I never can understand a word that comes out of this guys mouth! His rhyming is so childish you can tell he's a dumb hoodlum. Can't believe we went from Rakim, Tupac, Biggie to this

15 Iggy Azalea Amethyst Amelia Kelly, born June 7, 1990 known professionally as Iggy Azalea, is an Australian rapper, singer, songwriter, and model.

She can't rap. She's already got success because she's a white girl so white girls like her but her songs a terrible. She's just so fake. Just hope she stops an lets real rappers to it

She's white, so obviously people will know her and if you try to say anything bad about her, you're racist. It's honestly gotten so bad to the point where I say that Nicki Minaj is more tolerable than Iggy.

I'm a white girl who wears Abercrombie, but I listen to Tupac, and I know that she's NOT the realest. She's just a pop act who produces armies of white girls who think their hard core because they listen to "rap". Everyone I know is like that.

Her music is so corny, she is like a white version of Nicki Minaj and her fake accent annoys the crap out of me. She doesn't belong in hip hop.

16 Hopsin Marcus Jamal Hopson, better known by his stage name Hopsin, is an American rapper, record producer, director and actor from Los Angeles, California. Hopsin was born on July 18, 1985. His first album was called Emurge but he's best known for his album titled Raw.

More like overHATED. Get him off the list, or at least, out of the top 50. - DaWyteNight

He's not overrated, if anything he's underrated - KrazzyMadd

Again why is he even on here he's not overrated at all.

Overrated rapper with a corny flow, wack lyrics and disses rappers that are better than him too much, like Kanye West and Kendrick Lamar.

17 Gucci Mane Radric Delantic Davis, known professionally as Gucci Mane, is an American rapper who has released 12 studio albums and over 70 mixtapes. In 2007, he founded his own label, 1017 Records. He helped to pioneer the hip hop subgenre of trap music alongside fellow Atlanta-based rappers T.I. and Young Jeezy. ...read more.

Let's be honest for once! Who hears the words this clown tries to pronounce? Freeze cup was a joke! This whole rapper is a joke!

Yeah Gucci is pretty over rated, I mean he has a lot of music, I mean a LOT of music... But its mostly trash, absolute garbage

His name means

Gucci = underwear
Mane = hair

So his name basically means underwear head. Plus, he’s boring and has no charisma whatsoever.

Gucci mane isn't a rapper... He doesn't produce rap... Yall are dumb if you think he does, or are most likely too retarded to realize he makes DRUG DEALING MUSIC... He literally tells the audience this over 100+ times throughout his career... By the way I'm white...

18 Kid Cudi Scott Ramon Seguro Mescudi, better known by his stage name Kid Cudi, is an American recording artist and actor from Cleveland, Ohio.

Are you kidding me this guys so cool, his lyrics sre just to good, and so is his rapping

Kid cudi is not only a rapper, but also has a great singing voice. His beats are mesmerizing, and each of his songs has a meaning to them. Give him a try you will not regret it. He should be number 1

He's not even overrated

What the hell is kid cudi doing here? He isn't overrated and he's great

19 The Game Jayceon Terrell Taylor, better known by his stage name The Game, is an American rapper and actor. He was born on November 29, 1979 in Los Angeles, California. Game spent most of his childhood in foster care (up until high school) even though he knew all of his brothers and sisters. Since 2002, Game ...read more.

The Game is the greatest hands down!

Dudes obsessed with comparing himself to everyone else. He ways claims to be the "king" and puts himself in the same category as pac, but nobody else gives him this title. He just repetitively states it in every song. How can he be the best when all his comparisons are to other rappers?

His first few albums were good, his verse on Nas' "Hustlers" was really good, but after that he fell off pretty hard, started making songs with Lil Wayne and other wack rappers, he lost what made him good in the first place. I guess that's what happens when you surround yourself with Kardashians. Dude is too busy worrying about which one of the kartrashians he's gonna screw next and needs to worry about his rap lyrics. - DaWyteNight

Was one of the best rappers in mid 2000's. I mean the documentary and doctors advocate are strait classics. Lax was pretty good too but fell off so hard after that. I was so disappointed when jesus piece came out, I was so excited to hear it but it was that Lil Wayne auto tune B.S. rap. It's to bad such a great hard core west coast rapper had to fall off like that.

20 Tyler, The Creator Tyler Gregory Okonma (born March 6, 1991), better known by his stage name Tyler, The Creator, is an American rapper, record producer, and music video director. ...read more.

He may not be like the other rappers but he is definitely the better than them. He writes his own lyrics, makes his own beats, and directs his own music videos. That's a lot of stuff coming from a guy that had nothing. He doesn't do drugs or drinks like the other rappers. Honestly, he shouldn't be on this list.

Tyler copies Eminem? I'm sorry but how? Everything is completely different, the flow, the beats, the lyrics etc... Plus he doesn't deserve a spot in this list, in fact, I believe he is underrated

Flower Boy was one of the best albums of 2017. - DaWyteNight

I kinda liked Cherry Bomb... I don't think he's that overrated

21 John Cena John Felix Anthony Cena Jr. (/ˈsiːnə/; born April 23, 1977) is an American professional wrestler, rapper, actor, and reality television show host signed to WWE, where he is assigned to the SmackDown brand. ...read more.

John Cena is just a wannabe I don't know much about him but I heard him copy at least 10 Eminem songs so I don't think anyone actually classifies him as a rapper wrestler, sure, but not rapper

John Cena is a joke right... ? - KylePeake

Lol. Some people don't realize that he did rap. Also he isn't really a wrestler he's in WWE the fake pro Wrestling league. I'm an actual wrestler and I don't think that John Cena classifies or anyone in WWE because in wrestling we don't kick people we wrestle them

He's not a rapper unless "My Time is Now" (or whatever it is) counts as a rap

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

This fat sack of dung definitely needs to be way higher on this list. At least in the top five. I just can't imagine in what universe did this slug ever became a famous rapper. He couldn't spit knowledge if you held a gun to his head, but he lies about being a Miami drug dealer and then steals a guy's name. Needs to be at the top of this list for sure. - PrincelyVirtu

He is my favorite phony rapper. Very delusional in this ability to be a Boss/ King Pin.

This fat prick should be number 1. Fake thug drug dealer no lyrics talks about the same bs over and over.

He is absolute trash lyrically. He does not use complex rhyme schemes. He does not do multi-syllabic rhyming. He does not have any special kind of flow, he just says one bar then the next. He is bland.

23 Flo Rida Tramar Lacel Dillard, better known by his stage name Flo Rida is an American rapper and pop music artist from Carol City, Florida. He is known for songs such as "Low", "Right Round", "Sugar", "Club Can't Handel Me", "Good Feeling", "Whistle", "Wild Ones", "My House" and "GDFR."

Name a memorable Flo Rida verse. Don't worry I'll wait.

HE SHOULD BE A TOP TEN... BUT THEN HE IS MORE OF A POP SINGER THAN A RAPPER

A rapper who might just be worse than Pitbull and Jason Derulo...

First verse of I Cry is good, however he went pop.

24 2 Chainz Tauheed Epps, known by his stage names 2 Chainz and formerly Tity Boi, is an American rapper from College Park, Georgia, and is often regarded as one of the most mediocre rappers of recent years. He started out in the southern rap duo Playaz Circle with fellow rapper Dolla Boy, before he would become ...read more.

Seriously how was he not on this list?

This guy rhymes are out dated the cashmoney era has talked about money so this guy is late when you hear him talk about it

Stop taking 2 chainz seriously, its just fun music. He makes dumb as rock lyrics on purpose.

Two chainz raps like SILK THE SHOCK. HIS verses are like cat in a hat rhymes. So if you like the Dr Suess book. 2 chainz gets his style from a children's book. Just like Birdman

25 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 ...read more.

Rap is about being real. The realest rappers get the most respect. In this regard Biggie was a fake. A middle class kid with Nintendo games rapping about starving, growing up in a one room shack. His School Teacher Momma says, "We had a seven room apartment. I gave him everything he needed. We never went hungry." He rapped about being street -- when in reality he was a middle class privileged kid who slang some drugs. He wasn't street or ghettto, period. People argue about who was better -- Biggie or Tupac. All I gotta say is that Kendrick Lamar and Eminem are still talking about Pacs genius. Nobody talking about Biggie anymore. Warriors in South Africa dance to Tupac before going to war. The Game rewrote Billboards list to place Tupac at number one. The Vatican recognized "Changes" as one of the most influential rap songs. Who's talking about Biggie's stuff anymore? All he talked about was being a player -- he never lifted up African Americans like 'Pac the Black Panther Warrior Poet.

This is why 2pac is on the list. People like you who think it's all about personality when it comes to hip hop. And one song about poverty does not equal constant whining about it. Don't get it twisted. Hip hop isn't about being "real". It's about lyrics, rhymes, flow, and delivery. Basically rap is about rapping, not being a nice guy with a good message - Themusicman

Overrated just like Tupac but better than him. He and pac get the same fame because both of them died young at the time when they were at their best. So people keep on giving this excuse. But still he was way better than Pac. His flow was excellent and he had clever word play and metaphors. The only thing in which Pac was better than him was 'lyrical subject', not lyrics. Had Nas would have died after Illmatic and Eminem after The Eminem Show, then they would have called the greatest of all time. In my opinion Eminem and Nas are the best rappers of all time.

Exactly. It's always a personality contest when it comes to pac - Themusicman

2Pac really isn't that overrated, but Biggie, now he is overrated! What has he really done for hip hop? He released one good album and one below average album, that's it. His usic wasn't anything special, unlike 2Pac. I understand that it's more than just the subject matter that's important, it's also about flow and lyrics, but he didn't even have the best flow or lyrics. Big Pun had a flow 10 times better, and Nas is more lyrical, so I don't see why he's considered the goat. - DaWyteNight

Fat no talent.

26 Kendrick Lamar Kendrick Lamar Duckworth (born June 17, 1987) is an American rapper and songwriter. 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 ...read more.

He is good and lyrical, but I don't think he deserves to be in the top 5 AT ALL. Like, I mean, everyone is putting him in the top 5 or even top 1. And he's new to the game. MAYBE top 20. But not #1 - venomouskillingmachine

I'm not a rap fan, but I'll just put myself out there and say he is indeed overrated to me. He does have some decent lyrics, but gets way too much credit, even though he's not really the best of all of rap history. Not bad, but not great. I'd put him around the top 30 rappers.

The definition of overrated right here

He's not that bad

27 Trinidad James Nicholas Williams, better known by his stage name Trinidad James, is an American rapper based out of Atlanta, Georgia.

He's not overrated. He sucks, but everybody hates him.

A corny Jamaican fool with no talent.

This dude sounds he need to blow his nose.

Can't freestyle to save his life.

28 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.

His Raps Suck, the only way he can connect a verse to the next is by saying a similar phrase in Spanish.

I agree! He sounds the same in every single song! It just keeps getting more boring... And yet more annoying!

By far the most overrated "rapper"... Granted he has a few catchy (mainstream) songs that are to good to club to, like 'Wild Wild Love' and 'Give Me Everything' but other than that is absolute garbage. No lyrical ability at all just the ability to put on a good front to sell records... I even hate the way he looks.

The previous comment says it all. One of the biggest jokes in the entire history of recorded music. JOKE! How can anyone see him on stage doing that goofy dance with his arms up in the air and not laugh.

29 DMX Earl Simmons, known professionally as DMX and Dark Man X, is an American rapper and actor. He was born on December 18, 1970.

What dmx is good, he have different style and listen to the song slippin

Dmx is a dark poet, listen to his songs to feel and see what everyone fears which is coming in contact with the devil.

His first album, "It's Dark and Hell Is Hot" was great and a classic but he could never make anything half as good after that and became too mainstream with big radio singles. I consider him the east coast Snoop Dogg, because just like Snoop he has one really good first album and everything else after that is just not as good. - DaWyteNight

Aha, Dmx man... He's the type of guy who gives rap a bad name... He only raps about stereotypical wack, he has no skill in his raps, the beats have the most annoying tunes I have heard in any type of music, and most of all, his verse is the same in EVERY SINGLE SONG. The time when he got big was the mark of the end of the golden era of hip hop (don't get me wrong, there are some GREAT artists and albums out there, but there are just a lot more bad ones...).

30 Hoodie Allen

He is a wannabe. He just wants to be like drake, 2pac, and the other good rappers

Hoodie Allen would be a perfect voice for Goombario.

Who? - Dragon12604

Who is dis...?

31 Vanilla Ice Robert Matthew Van Winkle, known by his stage name, Vanilla Ice, is an American rapper, actor and television host.

He's not overrated because everyone thinks he sucks

Not too bad, but overrated

To be fair, no-one really takes this guy seriously anymore. His success mainly came from how his songs incorporated catchy baselines from other songs into his work, thereby fooling people to actually liking his music. - Mrveteran

Dude just check out Ice Ice Baby this guy can rap and he's nothing like Lil Wayne who autotunes himself

32 Future

He is insanely bad and I do not understand a word he "speaks"
Too much auto tune and it's scary to listen to.

He sounds like he's crying on every track. I can't sit through 30 seconds of any of his music.

Needs to be way higher up on this list. Just listen to karate chop and you will understand why

No seriously, he doesn't rap. This is autotune garbage with 0 creativity.

33 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.

Why IS LUPE ON THIS LIST?!? You kidding me?

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

34 Rap Monster (BTS)

Their whole group is overrated - Genesyis

Coleman embarked on his career in rapping, with the hip hop trio, Three the Hard Way. His first notable appearance came ...read 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.

Big L could freestyle about anything and freestyling ain't easy

He's a good rapper but yes he is a little bit overrated. Keep in mind, overrated doesn't always mean "bad" - DaWyteNight

Not overrated at all. He's underrated. Not one wack verse or song from him ever! Not one! - RobertWisdom

Are you kidding me

36 Cardi B Belcalis Marlenis Almánzar, known professionally as Cardi B, is an American rapper, songwriter, television personality and former stripper.

The fact that people still support her after she drugged and robbed a guy is mind boggling. - The01Bro

I wish I was a girl so I could punch her in the teeth

I can't stand her voice and she has no lyricism - DaWyteNight

Why the hell people like her? She sucks

37 2pac Tupac Amaru Shakur, also known as 2Pac, was an American rapper and actor born on June 16, 1971 in East Harlem, New York. Tupac sold over 75 million records worldwide and has been referred to in multiple major publications such as Rolling Stone as one of the greatest music artists of all time. 2Pac was ...read more.

2pac isn't overrated. He earned every bit of respect that he got. He's about number 6 on the greatest rappers ever list.

Tupac is one of the greatest Artist of all time, And I saw his slighty under-rated in this generation.

Honestly he is overrated. Like most of the people keep on calling him to be the greatest of all time. Most of those people haven't listened even to his all the work. They just keep on chanting Changes, Hail Mary, Dear Mama and Keep ya head up. If you listen to all his work you will realize he is not that special. He was good but not the greatest of all time. He gets all this fame because he died young when he was at his best. So keep on giving this excuse. Biggie gets the same fame, although he was good too. Had Eminem died after The Eminem Show, he would called the greatest of all time. In my opinion Eminem and Nas are the greatest rappers of all time.

He was a straight commercial rapper. While he helped popularize rap, he by no means was one of the greatest of all time lyrically wise. He could not touch the greats like Rakim, Krs one, Big daddy Kane, Nas in his prime, slick Rick. - Swinefloo

38 21 Savage Shayaa Bin Abraham-Joseph (born October 22, 1992), better known by his stage name 21 Savage, is an American rapper.

39 6IX9INE Daniel Hernandez, known by his stage name 6ix9ine, also known as Tekashi69 or simply Tekashi, is an American rapper.

He fakes being a gang member for the money. Everything that has happened around or TO him is for money. He is a PERFECT example of Michael Jackson's song Money.

Most overrated rapper of all time, his lyrics are so bad, he is trash

Go to geometry dash. Most of the user on there seems to like him and the people who don’t like him get disliked on there. - DrayTopTens

Top 3 popular people of 2018 (SAD)

40 Immortal Technique Felipe Andres Coronel, better known by the stage name Immortal Technique, is an American rapper and urban activist from Lima, Peru. He was born on February 19, 1978

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

Overrated skills, complete sjw

41 Silento Richard Lamar Hawk, better known by his stage name Silentó, is an American rapper, singer, songwriter, record producer and actor. He is best known for his debut single "Watch Me", which reached number three on the Billboard Hot 100.

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

So Overrated It's Not even Funny - VideoGamefan5

Lol, Silento Stinks

42 Tyga Micheal Ray Stevenson, known by his stage name Tyga, is an American hip hop recording artist. In 2011, Tyga signed a recording contract with Young Money Entertainment, Cash Money Records and Republic Records.

Take him to #1, Nicki Minaj and Lil Wayne are gulity pleasures but he... no wait he sucks so much I'm not even calling him a he, IT needs to go back into its habitat. Make him #1.

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

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

He is known for being a member of the group The Lox, as well as being a member of the Ruff Ryders collective and for his solo work. His first solo album, Kiss Tha Game Goodbye, ...read more.

He sucks, and he has the single most annoying laugh in hip hop next to Jay-Z and Lil Wayne. He isn't "top 5 dead or alive", anybody who believes he is is a complete idiot. I can think of at least 50 better rappers than him off the top of my head.

Couldn't possibly hang with real rappers like Rakim, Nas, Kane, G Rap, Pun, etc.

Overrated in the hip hop community

Jada is trash

Gazzy began his career in 2016 with a collaboration freestyle with Smokepurpp, which was eventually posted in Soundcloud to popular success. He broke out to mainstream the following ...read more.

Lack of flow, lack of lyrics, lack of talent in general. Typical example of how riding a wave can give you some fame.

Too repetitive, lacks basic flows and he embodies everything wrong with modern rap.

The most repetitive rapper in history - Not_A_Weeaboo

This is common sense that he is overrated.

48 G 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.

A lame ass swag rapper

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

This man is boring trash - DaWyteNight
