Most Overrated Rappers of All Time

The Contenders: Page 8

141 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

142 Nas Nas Nasir bin Olu Dara Jones, better known by his stage name Nas, is an American rapper. His album, Illmatic, is considered to be one of the best rap albums of all time. He is also considered to be one of the best rappers of all time.

Nas does not even deserve to be mentioned on a list like this. He has done far too much throughout his career to be called overrated, as Illmatic can attest to. That album is a work of pure genius, and to call the man that made the best hip hop album ever overrated is short sighted.

Are you stupid? Why is nas on this list?

Nas is not overrated I now realize the only reason that good rappers are on this is because they couldn't think of any other rappers to put on this list nas was born with a gift

I listened to the song "New York State Of Mind" and I was like " what's so great about it? ". Every Eminem song tops his best songs.

143 Chance the Rapper Chance the Rapper

Chance the Rapper has a very smooth nice flow. There's something about his voice & music that make you feel kind of good. I heard the first 10 seconds of one of his songs and was hooked.

Annoying to listen to, I hate his voice

Some people worship him as one of the best rappers around, while he's around singing the alphabet in one of his songs.

144 Yelawolf Yelawolf Michael Wayne Atha, better known as Yelawolf, is an American hip hop recording artist from Gadsden, Alabama.

Straight garbage. Yet another white "rapper" who sucks.

145 Chanel West Coast Chanel West Coast Chelsea Chanel Dudley, better known by her stage name Chanel West Coast, is an American rapper, singer, actress, model and television personality. She came to prominence for her roles in MTV's Rob Dyrdek's Fantasy Factory and Ridiculousness.

I don't know about her rap skills but I heard she is signed with Young Money so they can't be good. I know her laugh is annoying as hell and she is very ugly.

She makes Nicki Minaj and Iggy Azalea look like the rapper versions of Picasso and Van Gogh - DaLizts

The most over rated piece of garbadge ever. She the worst flow. She's the worst female rapper ever. She killed hip hop.

A complete fruit cup along side of Nicki Minaj and Iggy Azalea.

153 The Sacrifices
154 ASAP Ferg
155 Childish Gambino Childish Gambino

He shows almost no emotion in his songs if you watch the video. He's just so calm its awesome!

He writes his own music, produces it sometimes, & finds the beats. He writes amazing songs. Plus he's a good actor. & like his song says "they ask me, why every black actor gotta rap some. All I know is I'm the best one! "

Gambino is so sick!

He didn't steal it from a band, he used the wu tang name generator idiot...

157 Ace Hood Ace Hood

Ace Hood would be a good voice for a new Sonic the Hedgehog male or someone else.

He is way batter than most of all listed

Ace is one of the best rappers out there!

158 B Mike

He thinks only psychopaths go to therapy. When I have other Mental conditions that make me have therapy! Well B mike can go suck a dick because therapy is one of the things keeping me from cutting! And a funny things is Chief keef is more famous than his stupid ass. I hope B mike dies, never sees the light, and relives his painful unmereful death!

I guess he shouldn't be in this list cause he ain't rapping at all.
