The Contenders: Page 3

41 T.I. 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 from Atlanta, Georgia.

Definitely a top ten rapper of all time but is often forgotten during those discussions.

He used to be an ok rapper,but now he is garbage

T.I. is the realest MC ever and he's got the rap vibe man..

42 Twisted Insane

Really an amazing artist.

He is one of my favorite artists. He is also very talented.

43 Redman Redman Reginald "Reggie" Noble, better known by his stage name Redman, is an American rapper, DJ, record producer, and actor.

Reggie is a legend to true hip hop fans. So underrated, he is as good as nas and he is well respected by his peers.

44 OnCue
45 Lecrae Lecrae Lecrae Devaughn Moore, mononymously known as Lecrae, is an American Christian hip hop artist, songwriter, record producer and actor.

What's Eminem, Tupac and Biggie doing on here? Yes, they're good but not even close to being underrated.

Hopsin and lecrae definitely the most underrated

46 Joe Budden

Love Joe Budden

Devil in my Room is great and he goes HAM on Monsters in my Head

He is a goat and is super underrated

If I could I vote every Shady 2.0 members as underrated (except Eminem of course people hail him as one of the G.O.A.T.) but I need to give it to Joe. He makes pens bleed and even though he's not the most consistent rapper with multisyllable rhymes he gave the best dark feeling in his music. I have only listened to SlaughterMouse(because of it is his Stan record) from his album All Love Lost and it really made me knock my head against the wall

47 DJ Quik

Can't sleep on the guy who made one of the best diss tracks of all time. He produced all of his songs and produced albums for 2nd II None, Suga Free, Hi C, and more. Never forget Quik.

The best dj and rapper of all time

One of the best rappers out there. His lyrics are just great. His rapping is great to. He is rapping long texts with rhyme.

This guy is fantastic

Straight fire

50 Flo Rida Flo Rida Tramar Lacel Dillard, better known by his stage name Flo Rida is an American hip hop recording artist from Carol City, Florida.

Way underrated for his great hits that are very popular but nobody seems to give him all that much credit. He has so many great songs: Good Feeling, Wild Ones, Who that Girl, Low, Club Can't Handle Me, Right Round, Sugar, Birthday, Where Them Girls At, Jump, In The Ayer, Hangover, Turn Around, Respirator, AND EVEN MORE!
I was thinking about how underrated he was a couple days ago. WHY?!?!
Even though he is underrated everyone can still agree that he is awesome.

Finally on the top ten! If you think about all the amazing songs he's made. Flo Rida is really underrated for them. And most people love his songs too. Some of his songs are even in the Step Up movies. Before anyone votes on here. Think about all his music and songs he's brought us. Whistle, Good Feeling, Club Can't Handle Me, Low, Right Round, Wild Ones, Where Them Girls At, Hangover, Sugar, R.O.O.T.S. , Who that, Girl, Birthday, In The Ayer, Jump, Turn Around, Elavator, Be On You, Run To You, Respirator, and SO MANY MORE! He's one of the best rappers. Period. And he's hardly even recognized as overrated? He at least deserves that. He's one of my favorie rappers. Most of the songs listed above are very popular/well known. Who else could be more UNDERRATED. Just remember the catagory and what your voting for. If you do that. Flo Rida should'nt have a problem winning the crown he probably deserves most.

Rapper who stole the hooks of most of his songs. That's not to say they're not enjoyable, just that Flo Rida himself is not a very good artist.

He's underrated because people don't realize that he can actually spit when he wants to and has some deep songs. Listen to All My Life, R.O.O.T.S., and Rewind. Those songs are more meaningful than anything from your fave. I will say he should focus on making more meaningful songs and stop trying to be a pop star. - NicoleJohnnyLutherBrianFan

51 Fabolous

He is DEFINITELY one of the top most underrated rappers, he's a dope lyricist, and I hope he gets the rrespect he deserves

52 Pitbull Pitbull

He has a kind of a unique type of rap many people like pitbull but a small amount also hates him! Well I like him and his best song is international love!

Pitbull should be somewhere on the worst successful rappers list

I think he is d best

Pitbull is a rapper who rarely uses Auto-Tune (which everyone doesn't know) and can really spit and freestyle just as good as Immortal Technique and Nas
He joined Eminem's Angry Management Tour and he made a lot of classics back in the day
His songs like Give me Everything,International Love,Hotel Room Service,Timber were all good but people tend to treat him like a disposable mainstream artist instead of a rapper and that needs to stop
Pitbull is unique and talented

53 50 Cent 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.

he's one of the best rappers of all time and he is more than a rapper he is an influencial figure, he is truly a rennaissance man, ranked 5 to 6th with most record sales and he destroys eminem, lil wayne, pac, nas, biggie

50 Cent has so many haters. But he is the king of rap.

Don't forget wha he done

Overrated - RnBLover

54 Notorious B.I.G. Notorious B.I.G. Christopher George Latore Wallace, better known by his stage name, The Notorious B.I.G (a.k.a.

Notorious B.I. G I thnk he's the best he's the best rhymer I ever heard and the best freestyler so top up 2 the king B.I. G

Huh? - Jon8201

55 Sticky Fingaz

"Sticky Fingaz... I'm still alive that means the greatest rapper of all time ain't ever died" nuff said!

Star of Onyx, his first 2 albums were insane

Listen to his debut: "[Blacktrash] auto biography of Kirk Jones" it kills some more well known albums by more well known rappers.

56 Cory Gunz

He is the dopest MC you can find in these days... "Yeah word to my momma I'm outta my lima bean don't wanna see what that drama mean get some dramamine" SO DOPE - johnnsync

Too bad this dude ain't famous, he'd be "everyone's new favorite". His my favorite freestyle rapper besides Black Thought and Reed Dollaz

57 Mac Lethal
58 Rakim Rakim

Not only are Rakim's bars super sick, but they can also hold their own against most rap music now 30 years later. Transcendent artist that deserves more credit.

Rakim is lyrically insane! He is, in my opinion, in the top 10 BEST rappers. Immortal Technique is also very underrated and deserves to be near the top as well. - cutterback

Why do all the good ones fall into obscurity in favour of wack acts like Drake, Future, Kendrick, Or wiz?

The best one to ever do it

59 Ab-Soul Ab-Soul Herbert Anthony Stevens IV, better known by his stage name Ab-Soul, is an American rapper from Carson, California.

Ab-Soul is a lyrical genius who doesn't get the attention he deserves. This list is so ironic because half of the rappers on this list are not even remotely underrated, especially Tupac and Eminem, Em being the top selling rapper of all time and Tupac being at number three. I'm not saying they're bad, but they are far from underrated.
But of coarse, when you have a list like this, you also have vast amounts of uneducated fanboys who just vote the rapper they like the most, hence the vast amount of platinum and even Diamond rappers in this list.

So underrated he is an absolute all around amazing lyricist and rapper

Lyrical genius.

60 Guru

He killed every song from Gang Starr. Period. With his sick flow, nice monotone voice, and great lyrics, he is definitely a G.O.A.T.
