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.
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.
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.
Everything was written for him and he didn't even have one of the best flows. As aforementioned, he is so respected because he's dead and he was old school, but also because he actually lived out what he rapped, and some people believe that being "real" is more important than actually being able to rap. His only album that could even come close to classic status was one with pages taken out of cubes and The D.O.C.s rhyme book and beats taken from dres drum kit, as well with much guest rapping. - ThemusicmanV 8 Comments
Bizzy is the top 6 greatest of all time you dumb ass you just don't listen to him. Before you say some stupid like that. How can you say something when you don't listen to him? - JCchrom3
Bizzy bone is good before eazy e died after eazy e died bizzy went down hill... Still bizzy bone has the darkest and most murderous lyrics out there.
He is pretty good and all but he is currently fourth on the greatest rapper list? I don't even think bizzy is worthy of the top 50V 2 Comments
He makes fun party music and hip hop love jams like Flo Rida don't complain that he isn't lyrical, he never tried to be. - DaWyteNight
This guy never need to pick up the mic again. ST LOUIS Is back in the shadows
The last time I saw Nelly he was doing a cereal commercial l think (cherios). This cat need to just sit back and wait for a 20 year rap B E T award show. That's the only time we need to see him holding a mic.V 1 Comment
He should have been stopped rapping a long time ago. He's so old.
Dude, your like 50 years old. GET OFF MY T. V SCREEN.
Weed, violence. Repetitive ass flow no lyrical ability but I can't say he hasn't had some catchy moments. Overrated for sure.
Disagree. His raps are hilarious, with weird wordplay. I cannot relate whatsoever, and the beats are usually amazing.V 1 Comment
If you think Danny Brown is bad... we can't be friends. - SwagFlicksV 3 Comments
This turd is very overrated and he sounds like he needs to blow his nose, like, can I offer you a tissue please?V 4 Comments
He is just a little kid, chill out.
He thinks he's better than EVERYONE, even though his music is trash - DaLizts
He's dope, he goes to my school! Unbelievable I know, but he does
He should be 1 on the listV 2 Comments
Birdman is more of a crook/creative rapist. Ask Lil Wayne
I think birdman is more of a business man than rapper.
Name 1 person with hopes and dreams who has listened to an entire Birdman album, Don't worry. I'll wait
Only makes random noises throughout all of his songs.V 2 Comments
He has life in prison, unless someone pays $1 million for his bond. So no need to be hating on him.
He's been selling crack since like the fifth gradeV 3 Comments
I must be one of those brain-washed.
I consider I used to love H.E. R one of the best tracks ever written.
Best example of concept in using an extended metaphor.
Maybe you are listening with ear plugs. Enough said every one is entitled to their opinion.
This wannabe "conscious" rapper is an atrocious hypocrite. His rhyme scheme is repetitive and BORING as hell. All he talks about are about how he is "hip hop", just to distract listeners from his god awful flow and bland lyrics. I mean they suck hard. Just completely generic bull. Not entertaining AT ALL. How can this turtleneck soft rapper be even considered a legend is beyond me. He doesn't talk about anything, he's one of the worst rappers to hit the mic. A complete disgrace to music. Just one listen on a song by Common and you'll see how repetitive and boring he actually is. Totally overrated, in every sense of the word. Lupe and Nas are WAY more conscious than this joke of a rapper could ever be. Enough said, this guy is a clown. His songs are mindless, repetitive, weak-ass insignificant drivel. And anybody who considers him good are brain-washed, stupid ass, useless "hip hop" heads; who wouldn't know piss from lemonade.
Played out and his lyrics are terrible
Common's coolV 2 Comments
He Is The Best yas is Persian godV 2 Comments
I'm so glad this guy does not create music anymore. He had little 7 year old's on the playground singing a bay bay.
Hurricane had a nice style but his lyrics need work
I'm so glad this guy dissapeared like 8 years ago. But who know's, one day he might show up out of no where and start singing that one hit wonder " A bay bay" song.V 1 Comment
Banks only looks good by comparison because when your rapping with terrible rappers like young buck,50 Cent, and Yayo your bound to look pretty good compared to them. His first solo album was about average his second was a little bit above average and like I said he only looked good on beg for mercy cause of the wack rappers he was dealin with making an average lyricist like banks look great by comparison.
Lloyd Banks is underrated and so is Young Buck he isn't terrible at all!V 2 Comments
Why must he always sound like he's crying in his songs. I feel "some type of way" about that!V 1 Comment
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 deserveV 1 Comment
He's best when singing hooks and he does this well. He also drops the occasional gem on a verse and is excellent as a guest rapper. He should just never get top 10 consideration at all.
The most arrogant rapper I have ever seen in any interview ever. The guy acts like everyone needs to rise up to his level. It's absolutely ridiculous.V 2 Comments
How is Rakim here. He is in the top ten rappers of all time
Man, all them white kids commenting on rappers they don't even understand, all'y'all die aightV 4 Comments
