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
Hard to disagree. Many of his Stans don’t listen to hip hop outside the top 40. But he’s also very talented, maybe he wouldn’t be as successful, but I’m sure if it wasn’t a issue he’d still be successful.V 5 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 favourite but not every thinks that. - B0S5J4M3S
He's close, but MF DOOM blows him out of the water. - WonkeyDude98V 2 Comments
Do you really think Em gives a damn about popularity? If you do you got issues - B0S5J4M3S
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)
This is BS. KING KENDRICK! Rakim, Jay-z ODB Nas DRE SNOOP DOGG (lol) etc just to name a few - B0S5J4M3SV 3 Comments
You buy into his alter ego Slim Shady? Congrats, you let him win. - WonkeyDude98
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
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 isn't but it is a damn good one. - B0S5J4M3SV 5 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
Should not be on this list. That was slim shady, dumbass - B0S5J4M3S
IT'S HIS ALTER EGO, SLIM SHADY - venomouskillingmachineV 2 Comments
I'm a fan but I won't get mad if you don't like him as long as you let me like him
I HATE HIS FANBASE
is godly - B0S5J4M3S
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
Jay-Z? - B0S5J4M3SV 1 Comment
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
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
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
So... - B0S5J4M3S
No Love, Drop The World, and Roman's Revenge were all Lil Wayne and Nicki's best songs. - WonkeyDude98
And kidda made those songs there best. - B0S5J4M3S
Eminem talks about life, not sluts - CasinLetsGoBowling
Definitely far from it. Illmatic is the greatest.
It's not even Eminem's best album. - WonkeyDude98
SSLP is - B0S5J4M3S
Says this list - B0S5J4M3S
"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
No one would - B0S5J4M3S
So true. - kmyeakel
What the HELL is that - B0S5J4M3S
So...? - WonkeyDude98
So... - B0S5J4M3S
All rap is moronic, but he just abuses this fact. - PositronWildhawk
So...? - WonkeyDude98
So... - B0S5J4M3S
Cause he is - B0S5J4M3S
