Top Ten Reasons Eminem Is Overrated
The Top Ten
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
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.
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.
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
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.
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
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
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.
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
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
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
Definitely far from it. Illmatic is the greatest.
Eminem talks about life, not sluts - CasinLetsGoBowling
So true. - kmyeakel
Nope he dose not! - eminemgreenday
All rap is moronic, but he just abuses this fact. - PositronWildhawk
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.
