Top Ten Reasons Eminem Is Overrated
The Top Ten
You are racist, stupid - YanRocky
This is seriously a reason he's overrated. He's white. That's why he gets so much credit. 90% of his fanbase is white. Even he knows his album sales are based on his race. "Let's do the math if I was black I would've sold half" - White America
While that lyric in White America is pretty valid, it's because no one expects a white person to be hard-edged enough to rap about fictional stories of him killing his wife, raping his mother, and being someone's devil angel side of their conscience. This item, is racist. - WonkeyDude98
That's racist. Anyone who hates Eminem for this reason is an idiot. Anyone who hates Eminem for ANY reason is an idiot. Eminem is NOT overrated. Drake, Nas, Lil Wayne, Lil Yachty, Nicki Minaj ARE overrated. Eminem is a FANTASTIC rapper. Everyone else (besides 2pac, Snoop Dogg or anyone who was in NWA) is TRASH! Eminem should teach people how to rap. This may sound racist but all black rappers do is say the N word with a trashy beat. Say I'm racist but you know it's true.V 3 Comments
Eminem is one of the greatest rappers in the world, but there is no 'best rapper'.
No he isn't. White suburban kids who don't know about rap think so which is why this chump tops the majority of these list.
He's my favorite, but not the greatest. THERE IS NO GREATEST RAPPER - venomouskillingmachine
He's close, but MF DOOM blows him out of the water. - WonkeyDude98V 1 Comment
Love The Way You Lie is for popularity? Without Me is for popularity? Beautiful is for popularity? The Monster is for popularity? K hon. - WonkeyDude98
Whoever commented, saying that Nicki, Iggy, Pitbull, and Drake are good, you've gotta be kidding me. Iggy Azalea only raps about butts, along with Minaj, Pitbull is clean, and Drake has no talent
He is not the only good rapper but he is the best! - venomouskillingmachine
Eminem might be really good, but he's not the only good rapper. I mean, Pitbull, Drake, Nicki Minaj (somethimes), Iggy Azalea, and Snoop Dog are also really good (in my opinion)
I'll just list this again:
Macklemore, DoomTree, Kendrick Lamar, Lakim Shibazz, Rakim, 2PAC, Dr. Dre, B.I.G., Lupe Fiasco, MF DOOM, Joey B4D4$$, Killer Mike, El-P
Off the top of my head. - WonkeyDude98
Name a good rapper that isn't
You buy into his alter ego Slim Shady? Congrats, you let him win. - WonkeyDude98
I mean look at his fanbase, a good amount are either homophobic, misogynist jocks
He isn't either. - SwagFlicks
Exactly. If you actually buy into Eminem's crazy, violent persona, you fell right where he wanted you to. - WonkeyDude98
Lose Yourself is a good song, but it's overrated. It's not his best song. I'm sure people would think that if it wasn't in 8 Mile. It's far from being Em's best
Not even close. Yes it is ONE I'd the best. But it's far from THE best.
It's not even Eminem's best song in my opinion. Brain Damage is - venomouskillingmachine
It...kind of is. No pump-up anthem has been more pumping up, no inspirational piece more inspirational, flow been sharper, rhymes more genius. - WonkeyDude98V 3 Comments
He doesn't do that anymore, that was in 1999-2000. - CasinLetsGoBowling
Only Kim and loosely '97 Bonnie and Clyde, which were both some of his worst songs, for the record - WonkeyDude98
Name one besides Kim
IT'S HIS ALTER EGO, SLIM SHADY - venomouskillingmachineV 1 Comment
He used to be impressive with Eminem Show but now he is very unimpressive. Rap god is not impressive at all. Apparently he's a rap god because he raps fast.
He used to be awesome, but now he just makes knock-offs of Lose Yourself and Rap God.
Lil Wayne? Drake? Kanye West? Nicki Minaj? - WonkeyDude98
He went from making songs like Without Me and Till I Collapse to making pop songs like The Monster and Love the Way You Lie
He didn't sell out until last year, when he started making these pseudo-rap rock anthems that have no energy or inspiration to them. Phenomenal was supposed to inspire me, and Eminem himself isn't even inspired for it. - WonkeyDude98
Finally someone gets me
Yeah, I can agree with that.
I mean Lose Yourself vs. Phenomenal, DVSE, and Kings never die?
No contest. - ProPanda
Only three truly good albums out of eight. That's sad. His newer albums are awful.
Someone once said that one Jay z album equals Eminem's discography. I agreed.
Marshall Mathers LP 1 and 2
The Eminem Show
The Slim Shady LP
5 out of 8 albums that are great without being guilty pleasures. - WonkeyDude98
Exactly! Twista, Busta and Da Brat rap faster than this pseudo rapper. He only gets shine because of his race and so called beefs. All three aforementioned rappers have dope songs that are classics and you can still bump in the club. Twista is so underrated and more skilled lyrically and overall. Eminem is a joke! He just sounds like a angry retard whose mom made him upset.
Fast isn't always good - ProPanda
Busta Rhymes or Twista are - venomouskillingmachine
No Love, Drop The World, and Roman's Revenge were all Lil Wayne and Nicki's best songs. - WonkeyDude98
Eminem talks about life, not sluts - CasinLetsGoBowling
He is a massive hypocrite. He makes songs that are about never giving up on the surface, where in fact, they are shallow and specific to him only, and hardly relevant to how he actually went through life. And he criticises others for their attempts to be big in music. He's just a jerk who has become spoiled by the massive fluke which made him famous. - PositronWildhawk
He always dissed popstars in the past. Now he makes songs with popstars.
He is not! He is a god worshiper wich is good! - eminemgreenday
Definitely far from it. Illmatic is the greatest.
It's not even Eminem's best album. - WonkeyDude98
"My haters get sadder" - Lil Uzi Vert
"Real n***a, f*** these haters" - Lil Wayne
"My haters tryta knock me doing' dishes for a living" - Falling In Reverse
"Who-who cares what the haters thank? " - will.i.am
"Twirl off them haters" - Beyoncé
Meanwhile, Eminem has one lyric about his haters, in Rap God, a song meant to be awesome. - WonkeyDude98
Nope he dose not! - eminemgreenday
How? - WonkeyDude98
So...? - WonkeyDude98
All rap is moronic, but he just abuses this fact. - PositronWildhawk
So...? - WonkeyDude98
