Most underrated : Juice

He's really lyrical and his flow is tight. I dunno how many of u have heard of him but hes truly a gr8 mc and he even beat Eminem in a battle way back be4 em got signed. Check out his album 'Tip of the iceberg'.

Most Overrated : Tupac

True, hes contributed a lot for rap but when people make him out to be the g.o.a.t u have to say thats hes overrated.

underrated: u-god

this guy has ripped every track he's been on. i can get with people people who say they dont like his style but i dont understand people who say he cant rhyme. some people just dont have any reading comprehention skills. you gotta put some effort into lyrical intepretation.

overrated: dr. dre

the guy made some good beats when he was down with NWA. he ripped off every funkadelic beat in his death row days and he made some hits(so did puff daddy and mannie fresh). this guy has got be the most overrated producer of all time.

about your u-god decision i agree, because i think he's overshadowed by the other wu members since they're obviously more well known but when u said he ripped every track hes been on.....shall i remind u about black shampoo?

and yea dre is overrated his beats wer way better back when he dropped chronic

underrated- The RZA, Illogic

RZA is really good lyrically and he really knows how to put a song together. I dont think his solo has ever gotten the recognition it deserves. Songs like "see the joy" " a day to god is 1000 years" "samurai showdown raise your sword" and "fatal" are genius.

Illogic's words are insane. Hes not very well known but the metaphors and lyrics he uses are unparalled.


Overrated - der? ... The Game Lil Flip Snoop Dogg (other than Doggystyle)

most underrated = AZ, hands f*ckin down. All of his albums are gems to me, he's consistant, his rhyming ability is incredible, he's maad smooth(some of his joints could get some good rotation)... but a lot of(too many) people will always think of him as Nas' sidekick or that cat on "Life's A Bitch", it really is a damn shame. I can't wait for AWOL to drop, I'm definitely gonna give him some well deserved appreciation by coppin it. peace

black shampoo was a love song and i dont think you could make a hiphop love song any better than that. so as far as hiphop love songs go, u-god ripped it.

Underrrated: Royce Da 5'9"

Straight outta Detroit, beefed with Em, destroyed D12 witht he song Malcolm X, and made a clasic album Death Is Certain. So witty with punchlines and shit, dunno why most people don't know him.

Overrated: 50 cent

Come on, do I need an explanation?

Ya dude, I agree "BLACK SHAMPOO" was good for a love joint........I got no problems with rappers doing love joints if they got some soul, and are not on some Commercial 'I love your booty, and i want to give you a hug" shit.......like "All I need" by METH is dope too.........as goes for "all that I gots is you" by Ghost.....these songs have soul

some of you Fags are saying that DR DRE is overated????? he basically created the west coast sound of the 1990's........and has had some of the biggest hits over the past 15 years......discovered Snoop Dogg and Eminem......give your head a shake retards.

Furthermore, Tupac may not be a lyrical cat........but nobody in hip hop has had as much charisma on the mic as Pac

underated- Mk, talib kweli, u-god, royce da 59, eyedea and abilities.

all these MC's/groups have been slept on for year, Masta killa is on his way up now but before his album dropped no respect was given by the majority. kweli=one of the best lyrically and if u doubt this go and cop reflection eternal. royce on death is certain killed it and most cats jus remember his wak shit on rock city adn don't recognize his skill. eyedea and abilities, abilities is one of the best dj's out IMO and eyedea is tight.

in terms of overated Mc's everyone is listin dre, the game, snoop, pac but who really overates them, its not as if peeps on this site post up claiming that any of them are the best ever etc.
overated=jay-z (cause of all the shit people say about him having one classic album, all his albums have been mediocre at best, could never get into his style)
