I agree that Reef is underrated, but King Syze sucks, one of the few AOTP members I really don't like.

Lil' Wayne is extremely overrated, I can't believe people actually think this guy is good.

Wow Canibus is overrated? Eminem? You dont think they got skills? Canibus jus went toe to toe with every Wu member right? But hes jus "aiight".... Whatever, too many people jus judge him from the stuff he has jus released....in his prime he was untouchable with his lyrics. And Eminem is a genius, you need to wake the fuck up. This is a Wu-Tang website and they are always talkin about how lyrics are far more important than the beat. And since thats the case, how would you say Em and Bis are overrated?

saw Shadow on Oct 1st, dope performance, He was bangin out the drums on quite a few of his tracks on an akai. Had the visuals to go along every step of the way. Lateef opened and came out for a couple songs w/ shadow as well. Should check it out if the tours swings to where ever ur at.

Speaking of underated artist: Lateef and Lyrics Borns aka Latyrx

Prolly a perfect list. And to the Under I'll add G Rap, Jada and AZ. I think Styles is DEFINITLEY under-rated for the amout of exposure he can get.

some of the most underated people is probably all the emcees and producers of "Deepspace 5".
including "The Listener" and "Sintax the Terrific" and "Manchild" very dangerous emcees all of them.

i think ILL BILL is also underated. i hear the song "Alien Workshop" and was like "woa why haven't i heard of THIS guy before!?"

i think Jedi Mind Tricks is overated to some degree. Although Vinnie Paz is an EXTREMELY gifted emcee, his style and content tends to be pretty genric. but his metaphors and multis are complete genious.

La the darkman: Heard great things about this dude and download a few songs. Wasn't impress

Shabazz the disciple: I wasn't taken by his blow yet wu tang corp suckered me into thinking this dude was hot. I'm not feeling his lyric either. To me he sounds like another wu tang regect
