Most Overrated Hip-hop Albums of All Time

The Contenders: Page 2

21 808s & Heartbreak - Kanye West

It would've been better if kanye had never even released this album... He actually made a fool out of himself... He could have just put out 'love lockdown' and 'heartless' rather than putting out an entire album... I know kanye put out this album while he was still grieving on his mother's death... The reason for the album's poor quality

Overall not his best work but the album had its moments

This is simply not good. Lyrics on certain songs are nice and would be great to give someone with a better sound than this autotune bs that goes on the whole record. Not a fan.

This album is underrated not overrated...

22 Watch the Throne - Jay-Z & Kanye West
23 Hip Hop Is Dead - Nas

Very overrated album. While Nas is my favorite artist of all time, this album was not good, yet it was praised by critics. - TheMusicNerd

24 Relapse - Eminem

This album is generally thought of as a poor album, so it can't be overrated. Also, and this isn't me calling it underrated, but some people absolutely tear this album apart. It isn't horrific, that award would go to encore. It actually has some good tracks that actually have some clever lyricism. I honestly think if he didn't have the stupid accent the entire album (save a few tracks), this would be thought of as a much better album, probably not good, but not abominable as some people make it - Themusicman

I disagree. Relapse is actually a good album, with interesting songs, great production and good lyrics. But... Accents.

Relapse gets so much undeserved credit because it does what the Marshall Mathers LP 2 did better. It's also all of Encore's weaknesses doubled. - WonkeyDude98

Even em himself said he didn't like it

25 Ready to Die - The Notorious B.I.G.
26 The Eminem Show - Eminem

How is this overrated, this is Eminem's best album!

Whaaat? If the Marshall Mathers LP was a classic, the Eminem Show is... Uhh... You know. A great follow-up? It shouldn't be on here

This is underrated. Too overshadowed by mmlp

wrong

27 The Heist - Macklemore & Ryan Lewis
28 Take Care - Drake

Yes the production is good, but Drake is just very corny.

29 Marshall Mathers LP 2

This is Eminem's most underrated album. It has a lot of his best songs on here, such as Bad Guy, Headlights, and Legacy. - WonkeyDude98

In my opinion Rap God is overrated but that doesn't make it a bad song. It's six minutes straight of Shady. That's good.

Save the lyrics it's good. The beats sucks!

30 Yeezus - Kanye West
31 Zakhar Nameh - Zedbazi

Exactly Why Is A Persian Album Even On This List? No One Can Even Understand What There Even Rapping About(Apart From Farsi Speaking People).And It's Not Even Overrated Because No One In Iran Even Buys Music. It's All Free Downloads. Now To The Album Itself :
it's A Pretty Good Album But It's A Bit Electropopish But It's Got Good Raps, Good Rhymes Etc. And People Don't Even Pay Attention To It So It's Technically Not Overrated.

32 Jangale Asfalt - Hichkas
33 Anjam Vazife - Hichkas
34 Magna Carta, Holy Grail - Jay-Z
35 Mastermind - Rick Ross

Ricky Rosa sucks. Anything created by him is no worth a cent.

In my opinion, Rock Ross is super lame and uncreative.

36 VYP: Voice of the Young People - Lil Mama

The most overrated piece of garbage I have ever listen to in my 14 years if living! The beats are horrible, through out the whole album all she raps about is make up products and tour buses. Which also comes along with crappy music video's that make you lose eye vision, and also comes with the consequences of eternal ear bleeding cause by her high pitched cracky hyena voice coming out of that ugly hole of hers she calls a mouth. Luckily people who know REAL hip hop when they hear it had enough sense to to not buy the album.

This album is an absolute embarrassment!

37 Curtis - 50 Cent
38 I'm Gay (I'm Happy) - Lil B

How did this get positive reviews from critics? - TheMusicNerd

39 The Slim Shady LP - Eminem
40 Ds2 - Future
