Most Overrated Rappers of All Time

The Contenders: Page 5

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

I consider myself a fan of A$AP Rocky but subject matter is simple. Can't say he hasn't had creative moments but he's still very overrated.

He's twice on this list


82 YG YG

Bompton is what bloods call Compton so they don't say the C you degenerate

Wannabe Gangsta. What the hell is Bompton (BPT)? All I know is Compton. Making up fake cities like BPT get outta here

83 Ceza Ceza

He's the greatest Turkish rapper. He's underrated. Take him off now

86 Z-Ro Z-Ro Joseph Wayne McVey IV, better known by his stage names Z-Ro and The Mo City Don, is an American rapper from Houston, Texas.

More like most underrated rapper. This guy kills it and has a lyrical style similar to tupac.

He fell off so hard. He used to be really good but he should just retire now, he's lost that creative spark. I'm sick of hearing him sing about his dick and vagina. He doesn't really rap anymore now he just sings. He lost that drive just like Boosie and Lil Wyte sadly. - DaWyteNight

I feel less intelligent when I listen to this dude. Next!

87 Biggie Smalls Biggie Smalls Christopher George Latore Wallace, better known by his stage name, The Notorious B.I.G (a.k.a. Biggie Smalls), is consistently ranked as one of the best rappers of all time. The Notorious B.I.G was born May 21, 1972, he was born in Brooklyn, New York. At the age of 24 The Notorious B.I.G was murdered more.

Is this a joke biggie overrated?!?!?

He gets called the greatest rapper of all time just because he's dead. At least he has an interesting voice and some interesting lyrics.

Biggie is not overrated and it is a disgrace that people compare him to mediocre artists like Eminem and Tupac.. RIP BIG

Isn't he #33 in the list? - POWERStarz2004

88 Earl Sweatshirt Earl Sweatshirt Thebe Neruda Kgositsile, better known by his stage name Earl Sweatshirt, is an American rapper, record producer, and disc jockey from Los Angeles, California.

Earl Sweatshirt talks about somethin real in all his songz. he occasionally makes stupid songs with Tyler but those are funny

Earl sweat? Ooverrated? Yall stupid

Earl isn't overrated, he's amazing! Y'all don't know real rap, Lil B is more overrated than him. - KylePeake


89 Andre 3000 Andre 3000 André Lauren Benjamin, known by his stage name André 3000, is half of the hip-hop duo OutKast. He is widely considered to be the better half of the duo, and is widely considered to be one of the greatest rappers of all time.

Sounds like he went through puberty backwards. Why does everybody want an Andre solo album so bad, he's not good anymore, he was good only in the 90's. Now he's a weirdo like kendrick lamar. - DaWyteNight


He may have talent, I don't know, but his fans are so annoying

Like, he's good, but doesn't deserve all the praise he gets - venomouskillingmachine

91 Ice T

One of the first guys to do gangster rap, but when you listen to his songs, you can't really hear what's going on to his voice. He is a good rapper, but definitely not the person guys think he is

Terrible! How did this guy ever become famous for rapping? His metal band is better.

Overrated now. His acting is boring, he gets on T.V. shows, and doesn't shut up. He didn't have to play a cop forever, and he expects us to believe he's some street guy. He left the street a LONG time ago, and the woman he picked, well, no comment...

How is he overrated

92 Eunhyuk Eunhyuk Lee Hyuk-jae, better known by his stage name Eunhyuk, is a South Korean singer-songwriter, dancer and actor.

This guy can't even rap. Go youtube his rap videos, and you will see how bad he is. Only super junior fans think he can actually rap. Delusional

93 Logic Logic Born on January 22, 1990, Sir Robert Bryson Hall II, better known as Logic, is one of the most influential artists in the rap game today, with amazing lyricism and flow. Logic first gained major fame through making 2013's edition of the XXL Top-10 Freshmen List, and has easily become the most successful more.

This guy is mine when it comes to rap. The Incredible true story bro... no album has got me feeling that way. Never been, City of Stars, Stainless, 44 Bars( I know that 44 Bars isn't the incredible true story) all bangers!

I admit I'm a big logic fan and I admit lots of his fans including me love every song he makes he does get a little to much hype from fans

Logic is the best rapper to ever exist, period.

Better than every rapper. The young Jesus

94 Young Thug Young Thug Jeffrey Lamar Williams, better known by his stage name Young Thug, is an American rapper from Atlanta, Georgia. He became known for his commercial debut single "Stoner." Notable Albums/Mixtapes: Barter 6, Slime Season, Slime Season 2, I'm Up, Slime Season 3

He doesn't even speak English. Worst rapper of all time by far. Lil' Wayne had at least one good song.

Worst rapper ever. He is so crap that Bill Gates wanted to give him 7 mil to stop making rap music

I'm tired of hearing about this wack ass rapper. He has a horrible flow and is a awful lyricist.

He isn't a rapper he is the worse

95 Eazy-E Eazy-E Eric Lynn Wright better known by his stage name "Eazy-E", was an American rapper who performed solo and in the hip hop group N.W.A. He is affectionately called "The Godfather of Gangsta Rap". He was born to Richard and Kathie Wright in Compton, California. On March 26, 1995 Eazy-E dies from complications more.

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. - Themusicman

97 KRS One

I now realize the kind of retard that made this list if rakim, big l and krs one are on this list and how is immortal technique on this on the most underrated rappers list on this site he's number 1

This man just put all the popular rappers on here not seeing of they were talented or not. I was with you in the beginning but Rakim and KRS? Come on man

No one talks about him now, but he should've been overrated at the time. He was grating, acting like he was the teacher we all needed, and his voice was usually shouting. Not a fan.

I voted him as over rated because he sucks as an artist. His new albums are getting better I guess, but Baby ruined my childhood. Even though he isn't a rapper he deserves the hate

He's not a rapper -.- SMH Why is he on any list. He's so bad he wont even make a list

He's a joke plain and simple

He is pretty pathetic - Jiorl

99 Migos Migos

Every single one of them is terrible, including Migos. Whatever Migos "created" should have stayed in hell

Migos are one of the best rappers haters should listen to their album "culture" then they can start judging.

Straight trash, all three, and none of them are rappers.

Migos are the best rapper alive they made the "Trap Flow" and other rapper stole their flow like 21 Savage,Young Thug,2 Chainz,Drake Mango Foo,Peewee Longway,Bankroll Fresh and more.
