Top Ten Most Overhated Rappers

The Top Ten

Pitbull Armando Christian Pérez, better known by his stage name Pitbull, is a Grammy (and Latin Grammy) winning Cuban-American rapper, songwriter and record producer.

This guy actually is capable of writing good raps, he just chooses not to. Flo Rida is more of a party rapper but Pitbull actually can spit. He's definitely not Nas or Rakim or anything like that, but he's better than most people make him out to be. - DaWyteNight

What are some some songs that would be a good show of this? I don't really hate Pitbull but I haven't heard any songs where I thought he seemed to show much rapping skill and his awful lyrics put me off. - Powell

Kanye West Kanye Omari West is an American rapper, songwriter, and fashion designer. He was born on June 8, 1977 in Atlanta, Georgia. After West's parents divorced, him and his single mother moved to Chicago, Illinois. At the age of 10, West temporarily moved to Nanjing, China, because his mother was teaching ...read more.

Should be #1. People only hate him for his personality, which doesn't even affect his music, which is amazing.

I respect your opinion, but personally I think he's capable of making great songs. You should listen to College Dropout and Late Registration, they're both of his most lyrical albums along with Graduation.

Deserves the hate. He doesn't even write his own lyrics and his rapping isn't even good.

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.

Never understood all the MGK hate. In 2018 people hate him because of the Eminem beef, but before I don't know.

Lil Wayne Dwayne Michael Carter, Jr. is an American rapper from New Orleans, Louisiana. He was discovered by Brian "Baby" "Birdman" Williams at a very young age, and was signed to Cash Money Records, where he would be one quarter of the rap group Hot Boys. In the years to follow, he would go on to find his own ...read more.

He was voted the worst hip hop artist on the worst rappers list but he makes really good songs.

One of the worst lyrical rappers.

The guy deserves most of the hate that comes his way because he is one of the people who has helped to destroy hip hop. When the Carter III won a grammy over Lupe Fiasco's the Cool hip hop died a little. Plus, this guy is another one who used a ghostwriter.

Hopsin Marcus Jamal Hopson, better known by his stage name Hopsin, is an American rapper, record producer, director and actor from Los Angeles, California. Hopsin was born on July 18, 1985. His first album was called Emurge but he's best known for his album titled Raw.

The hate this guy gets is unreal. Then again, most people who hate on him don't have any real reason to hate him other than saying he's "corny." Another thing I've noticed is that most people who think Hopsin is trash think Kanye West and Drake are great rappers, which means that their knowledge of hip hop in general is very undeveloped and their opinion has little value.

I would say that he's both overrated and overhated because people either really love him or really hate him.

He's both overrated and overhated.

*Overrated

Flo Rida Tramar Lacel Dillard, better known by his stage name Flo Rida is an American rapper and pop music artist from Carol City, Florida. He is known for songs such as "Low", "Right Round", "Sugar", "Club Can't Handel Me", "Good Feeling", "Whistle", "Wild Ones", "My House" and "GDFR."

He is best known for his albums Reasonable Doubt, The Blueprint, and The Black Album. He is considered to be one of the best rappers of ...read more.

He's an overrated, cocky useless sellout we don't need in rap who steals lyrics and the styles of other rappers, he deserves more hate. - DaWyteNight

Drake Aubrey Drake Graham, known professionally as Drake, is a Canadian rapper, singer, songwriter, record producer and actor, born on October 24, 1986 in Toronto, Canada. He started his career on Canadian reality show "Degrassi: The Next Generation".

I used to think he was overhated, but now days he deserves most of the hate he gets because he is so generic and doesn't write his own lyrics. - DaWyteNight

Logic Born on January 22, 1990, in Gaithersburg, Maryland. 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 ...read more.

The hate this man gets is also undeserved, mostly because people give no good reasons for saying he isn't a good rapper. Some people even act like being lyrical is a bad thing. - DaWyteNight

He doesn't get hate, his albums Supermarket and Confessions are hated because they were garbage. - AlphaQ

Boosie Badazz

The old Boosie was a good rapper (not a lyricist) but a good street rapper, but nowadays he's kinda turned into a clown. - DaWyteNight

The Contenders

XXXTentacion Jahseh Dwayne Onfroy (January 23, 1998 - June 18, 2018), known professionally as XXXTentacion, and often referred to as X, was an American rapper, singer and songwriter.

He's both overrated and overhated, but more overrated. - AlphaQ

X is one of those artists that people either love or hate. - DaWyteNight

In his early years, Yelawolf released his first independent album "Creek Water', which was released in 2005. During 2005 to 2010, he released one extended play (EP) and four mixtapes. ...read more.

This guy is actually really good when he wants to be, but some people just hate him and think of him as a "white trash rapper." - DaWyteNight

Nicki Minaj Onika Tanya Maraj, known professionally as Nicki Minaj (born December 8, 1982) is a Trinidadian/American rapper / pop music artist. Minaj is most known for her songs such as "Anaconda", "Super Bass", "Starships" and her feature on "Bang Bang". ...read more.

He has been in many popular movies, These include, but are not limited to, the Men in Black franchise, The Pursuit of Happyness, and After Earth. He is ...read more.

There's literally no reason to hate him, other than his raps being "clean." But then again, Rakim didn't need to curse either and he's considered one of the best rappers of all time, so it's really stupid to hate Will just because he didn't curse. - DaWyteNight

Tech N9ne Aaron Dontez Yates, born November 8, 1971, better known by his stage name Tech N9ne, is an American rapper. In 1999, Yates and business partner Travis O'Guin founded the record label Strange Music.

Plies Algernod Lanier Washington, better known by his stage name Plies, is an American rapper. He is known for his singles such as "Shawty", "Hypnotized", and "Bust It Baby." Unlike his sing-songy singles, Plies' albums mostly contain realistic material about the street life and trying to survive. His first ...read more.

Plies songs are ridiculous. - AlphaQ

He is somewhat overhated, but I get why he's hated with songs like Becky and bruh bruh. Plies' worst songs have always been his most famous ones. - DaWyteNight

Mike Jones

Sure maybe he says his name a bit too much, but he's fun and his first album was good. - DaWyteNight

Joey Bada$$ Jo-Vaughn Virginie Scott, better known by his stage name Joey Badass, is an American hip hop recording artist and actor.

Again, dumb people actually hate on him for being "too lyrical" and old school. Would you rather have him make ABC raps and use autotune so your simple mind could understand?

He's way better than Eminem.

Kodak Black Bill K. Kapri is an American rapper better known by his stage name Kodak Black. He is noted for his singles "Roll in Peace", "Tunnel Vision", and "No Flockin", as well as his numerous legal issues.

He has some good songs, I said it. And at least he' better than say, 21 Savage, or say, Gucci Mane.

Nah, Kodak Black deserves every squeezing bit of hate he gets. He can't even speak properly and ruins potentially good songs with those hideous vocals and cringeworthy lyricism.

Yeah, those songs are good, I'll give him that, but most of his songs are awful and his voice is an issue for me.

Iggy Azalea Amethyst Amelia Kelly, born June 7, 1990 known professionally as Iggy Azalea, is an Australian rapper, singer, songwriter, and model.

People think shes decent and better than most female artists but she's a pot of garbage. Even Cardi B and Nicki Minaj have spit way better than she has.

She isn't good, but at least she can spit better than say, Cardi B.

Eminem Eminem, born Marshall Bruce Mathers III, is an American rapper, actor and music producer born on October 17, 1972 in St. Joseph, Missouri. Eminem has sold over 300 million records making him the bestselling hip-hop artist of all time. In addition to his solo career, he is a member of D12 and (with Royce ...read more.

Dude, Eminem doesn't get any hate. He's the most overrated rapper of all time and he's not even Top 10. People treat him like the only good rapper though.

He's so overrated that he's actually hated, and the only people who treat him like the only good rapper are probably people who have never listened to rap and have only heard of the universally loved Eminem and the almost as universally hated Lil Wayne.

Tyga Micheal Ray Stevenson, known by his stage name Tyga, is an American hip hop recording artist. In 2011, Tyga signed a recording contract with Young Money Entertainment, Cash Money Records and Republic Records.

Dare I say it, the dude actually has nice flow in some songs. His problem is that he makes so many trash songs with chris clown. But he can spit and flows better than say, Drake. - DaWyteNight

Nah, this untalented boi deserves the hate he gets. - AlphaQ

The only thing he could do is rape a goat.

K-Rino Eric Kaiser (born 9 September 1970), better known by his stage name K-Rino, is an American rapper and record producer from Houston, Texas. He is a pioneer of the Southern hip hop scene, and has been rapping since 1983. K-Rino's first release was the single "rocking It" with his group Real Chill in 1986, ...read more.

The funny thing is that usually the people hating on him are fans of Lil Wayne and Kanye West, which means they know absolutely nothing about hip hop. - DaWyteNight

The only people I've seen hating on him are Eminem fans. Even though he isn't really overhated for me. Because I really like him but he isn't overhated or overrated, he's underrated. - venomouskillingmachine

El-P
J. Cole Jermaine Lamarr Cole, better known by his stage name J. Cole, is an American hip hop recording artist and record producer.

I get why people clown him for all of his fart lyrics, but then there's those dumb people who say he's "boring" who would probably rather listen to Drake instead.

People are saying J Cole is boring but they enjoy Drake? Drake is just so boring to listen to. J Cole hypes you up in most of his songs.

People hate him for being corny and boring but he's really good.
