41 Machine Gun Kelly Machine Gun Kelly Colson Baker, better known by his stage names MGK and Machine Gun Kelly, is an American rapper and actor, from Cleveland, Ohio.

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

He is extremely underrated. He is a great rapper, that is all there is to say

Just, bad. Only Invincible is good.

Trash and not a rapper.

42 Dr. Dre Dr. Dre Andre Romelle Young, better known by his stage name Dr. Dre, is an American rapper, record producer, and entrepreneur. He is the founder and current CEO of Aftermath Entertainment and Beats Electronics.

This guy isn't a rapper. He is the entropeneur of rap and an embassador. He is an icon in rap history. He might of laid down a few rhymes but he's a producer first, rapper second - 3anegroes

He's an amazing producer and all but not a rapper, sorry - he doesn't even write his own lyrics.

He's the greatest rapper alongside Eminem, Hopsin, Kendrick, and Locksmith. The best producer ever, and a great musician

He rose to fame in 2006 following the success of his debut album, Lupe Fiasco's Food & Liquor. He also performs as the frontman of rock band Japanese Cartoon more.

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 is he overrated? Andre 3000, Kendrick Lamar, Jay Z and Lil Wayne are overrated, not Lupe. - DaWyteNight

44 Tyga Tyga Tyga is a rapper that was born November 19, 1989. He was popular in 2012 and is best known for dating Kylie Jenner while she was still a minor.

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...

Who? This horse ass faced lil bitch is way too overrated,his music sucks, he's got no talent, and his lil skanky trashian explains it all

46 Big L Big L Lamont Coleman (May 30, 1974 – February 15, 1999), best known by his stage name Big L, was an American hip hop recording artist, born and raised in Harlem, New York City, New York. Coleman embarked on his career in rapping, with the hip hop trio, Three the Hard Way. His first notable appearance came 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 is definitely UNDERRATED. He died before the world could recognize how great he is. If he was alive a little longer when Flamboyant could take off, I am so sure he would be up there with Tupac and Biggie. Him being on this list is just so disrespectful to him and his art. Just take a listen to any of his songs

Why is he even on this list? If he was still alive then maybe there wouldn't be so many overrated rappers like the ones listed above. Big L is definitely not overrated. In fact, in my opinion, he is one of the most underrated rappers out there!

One of the best rappers of all time

48 Ice Cube Ice Cube O'Shea Jackson, born June 15, 1969, known by his stage name Ice Cube, is an American rapper, record producer, actor, and filmmaker. He began his career as a member of the hip-hop group C.I.A. and later joined the seminal gangster rap group N.W.A. After leaving N.W.A in December 1989, he built more.

Ice cube is one of the best rappers ever

Made it with pure youthful talent, a phenomenal rich baritone, and a real hunger for pointing out injustice. Unfortunately, after Amerikkkas Most Wanted, the best was over. Proves again that talent often comes from the middle class, not total poverty. He could get an overrated rating just lately for acting like Straight Outta Compton was equal to the greats like Jimi Hendrix and Louis Armstrong, and sorry, but it isn't, and if it is, what followed it certainly wasn't even close.

I agree I don't know what these people are thinking

MC Ren is much better than him, Cube ain't nothing that special. - DaWyteNight

54 ASAP Rocky ASAP Rocky Rakim Mayers, better known by his stage name ASAP Rocky, is an American rapper, record producer, director and actor from Harlem, New York.

Has some good songs but in others sounds lazy and raps about money and drugs

HORSE FACE! And not a rapper.

He shouldn't even be on this list. He'll murder anybody in a cypher or freestyle battle. Do your research fools!

He's nothing special. He just looks good up against Future, Big Sean, Young Thug and Migos. - DaWyteNight

Big Sean and Future aren't bad, but ASAP Rocky is better than both - venomouskillingmachine

He started rapping more about money.. He fell off.

His voice never went through puberty

Just like Tech N9ne and T.I, he sold out and started rapping about money.

58 E-40 E-40 Earl Stevens better known by his stage name E-40, is an American rapper, entrepreneur, and investor from Vallejo, California.

Y'all need to go back to the E40 in the 90's. This man invented most of the slang these young punks are speaking now. He has a very unorthodox style of rapping that is off the hook. Most of his new is banging too. E40 made mob music, you can ride and smoke to. He's one of the greatest West Coast rappers of all time, lyrically!

If he is so terrible then why does his influence show on all modern rap? Hell most modern rappers give him credit for being one of the greatest.

This guy can mess up a song. You will have an instant piece of crap song. Get him on the track

Never understood the love for E-40. He's always been garbage to me.
