Top Ten Reasons Eminem Is Overrated

The Top Ten

1 He's white

Tupac is a better rapper. - I80

This is the cold heart truth and y'all can get mad if you want but if he was black he'd be another black local emcee to hip hop fans and wouldn't sell platinum or do big numbers, y'all eminem stans know this deep down and so are you non hip hop fans but it's the truth

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

2 People think he's the greatest

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

Nas, Biggie, AZ, Common, Andre 3k, Big Pun, Big L, MF Doom, Canibus, K-Rino, and Kendrick Lamar. Those are rappers better than Eminem.

3 Makes pop songs to get more popular
4 People think he's the only good rapper

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)

All rap is terminal disease while Muse are pure gold.

5 Lose Yourself is not the best rap song

This might actually be the most overrated rap song in existence. Everyone lists this song as the best rap song ever, but it's not even Eminem's best. There are so many better songs, just in his discography. Stan, Kim, 'Till I Collapse, My Name Is. Those were the first songs that came to my head. Everybody wants storytelling in their rap music, but where's the storytelling here? Have you ever stopped and thought what it's about? Well apparently it's about Em's childhood in Detroit, which is given "so much evidence." There are so many better rap songs and the fact that people still believe this false ideology is mind boggling (you liked those big words I'm using? I'm gonna use them around my students to make them think I'm smart) - hiphopgod

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

6 He is homophobic and sexist

Name a good rapper that isn't

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

It’s genuinely hard to listen to some of his songs it’s just so degrading to women.

7 His fanbase

I'm a fan but I won't get mad if you don't like him as long as you let me like him


8 He's fallen off harder than any rapper

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.

I've said this before, but his career died with Encore. - hiphopgod

9 His discography is unimpressive

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.

10 Makes songs about killing his wife

He doesn't do that anymore, that was in 1999-2000. - CasinLetsGoBowling

Name one besides Kim

IT'S HIS ALTER EGO, SLIM SHADY - venomouskillingmachine

Kim was the only one (far as I know) - ProPanda

The Contenders

11 He's a sellout

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

Finally someone gets me

Yeah, I can agree with that.
I mean Lose Yourself vs. Phenomenal, DVSE, and Kings never die?
No contest. - ProPanda

12 His subject is corny and he can't even take criticism
13 He's a hypocrite

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

14 He is not the fastest rapper

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

15 He gets praised as a god
16 He attacks people who he doesn't see fit to be in music
17 Marshall Mathers LP is not the best rap album

Definitely far from it. Illmatic is the greatest.

18 He rapped with Lil Wayne and Nicki Minaj

Eminem talks about life, not sluts - CasinLetsGoBowling

19 He rests on his laurels too often
20 His songs are boring

So true. - kmyeakel

21 He rips off Rick Ross

Nope he dose not! - eminemgreenday

22 He is very similar to EpicLLOYD
23 He's "matured"
24 He's a rapper

All rap is moronic, but he just abuses this fact. - PositronWildhawk

25 He's not even the best rapper from Detroit
26 His vocabulary is small compared to more talented rappers

He’s not even in the top 50 when it comes to using unique words. He also just makes stupid fart noises on a track and people call him the goat.

27 People act like he's the only good white rapper
