basically all the mainstream people today come to mind, like Young Jeezy, but (look down a post) he's only got one album, just say whoever you think is overrated.

i honestly can't really think of anyone but anyone from this era... uhh.... i'm gonna have to say Eminem.

i think it's too quick to say that a new artist that has one album is "overrated" (referring to the young jeezy comment).

k im gonna get hated for this, but Tupac & BIG... honestly. Love the music and all but not greatest of all time come on!

Tupac was the greatest of all time in some eyez because of the lifestyle and his perspectives and his relation to the people. Biggie was just a lyricist that got fucked up in the end. "Nice guys finish last" - Green Day. I can't give you the most overrated but I'll give you an overrated. Young Cheezy and Lloyd Banks, ah damn! T.I.

Ludacris is Ludacris! His nickname is Luda short for his ludacrisness with the lyrics. Not lyrical luda. He can freestyle and write songs. That's wassup.

Pac. Pac stans(not true fans) are the worst. If u don't agree Pac is the greatest,u ain't shit lol. Funny thing is a lot of his "fan" base came AFTER he passed. All of a sudden MCs wanna to be like him. Yet, none of them tried that shit while he was living

I'm not denying the fact that he had skills, but alot of niggas be saying that he's the best of all time. He wasnt better than any of the niggas he was dissing:
P - was a beast back then
Jay - early Jay, nuff said
Big - come on
Maybe he was a better artist than, being that he could act but being the best in this rap shit, negative.

don't get me wrong... all of these guys had talent and did well with what they had... but they are definitely overrated...

in terms of underground... canibus... my god, this guy uses ten syllable words to try and disguise the fact that he's a one trick, abc rapper...

D-Block - J Hood & Sheek are WACK! So the block is not that hot when 2 of they members suck & 2 are nice

G-Unit - need I say more. 50 turned in2 Ja Rule. Banks is weak. Buck is Ok but not my taste. Yayo hasnt impressed me since b4 his last prison bid. Olivia is just a better looking version of Ashanti

Terror Squad - these used 2 be my niggas but Pun(a g.o.a.t.) dies & we get Remy. Shes not wack & i know shes not Puns replacement but Joey should have at least added another ill latino. Joel Ortiz anyone?

DMX - never did like this cat altough he was amusing at times

Fabulous - he's like the lil bobble head version of Jay-Z spitting lyrics on a 4th grade reading level

Dipset - THE MOST OVERRATED MC's OUT RIGHT NOW. take away they beats & they aint shit

Most 0f The Dirty South - T.I., Lil Flip, No Limit, Cash Money, Gucci Man, Bubba Sparxxx, Feild Mob, Pastor Troy ( Toney got the real world title bitch), Lil Scrappy, Mike Jones Mike Jones Mike Jones, etc....

NOTE: Dont get it twisted the South got Raw MC's: Ghetto Boys, UGK, 8 Ball & MJG, The Dungen Family (Outkast, Goodie Mob, etc...), & a few others
Nobody ever step 2 me saying Killer Mike was sick wit it so I dont consider him overrated.

Tupac and its an easy choice, he was overrated from day one
His lifestyle was one of contradiction. He went to art schools and had all the oppurtunity in the world and he wanted to be a thug. But thats not the point, the point is that he is the most overrated MC because some put him in the top 10 on their MC lists. He was a good MC, but nothing great. Also alot of people bought his fake image, lets face it the guy was an actor also. He talked shit about alot of people and then he got shot up. Chino XL ripped him.. He was a jekyl and hide kind of guy who degraded black females and then told them to keep their heads up so he could clown them again when he saw the same ho wherever he go.. He didnt care about people anymore than he cared to make money..

ok, I havn't heard much of Common, but from what I have heard he's overrated. His verse on Get Em High is sorta weak, but all the other stuff I heard from him I liked.

Kanye is kinda overrated, I like his stuff, but he's no great MC.

Jay-Z, like him but don't like a lot of his tracks.

Yeah @ Common (Yeah@Common) on ''get 'em high''....some people went crazy over that like ''Shit that was sick; the return of the dope Common'' and I was like ''huh? it was kinda.....average''. However, minus that verse Common still remains one of my fave rappers.
And totally 150% I agree @ Kanye, he is so over-rated its unreal-nothing more to say on that! lol

Papoose is also over-rater IMO, along with Lil Wayne (lately ppl have been going crazy over him)

Pastor Troy? lol. He has a few average albums and since when does anybody come up to you and say Pastor Troy is sick? lol...

Here's another thing, a lot of you complain about lyrics. One dude said T.I. is overrated. He makes consistant bangers in the mainstream. HIS MUSIC ISN'T ABOUT THE LYRICS you idiots. Now i can see somebody saying 50cent is overrated, but T.I. still keeps it gutter for the most part...and that's a main factor for sure.

he's just an average MC with catchy hooks & OK beats

How So? He been involved in 2 albums that are considered by many to be classics, the Blackstar album and black on both sides. He's a lyrical talent that actually has something to say about the shortcomings of the society around him. Not many emcees do that, he's made a pretty big contribution to Hip Hop over the years, I dont see how he's overrated.
