I didnt know there were so many hip hop heads on this forum so since the last post of Best Lyricist did well I guess we needed this one too because there were some serious debates on who was overrated & over saturated on the airwaves.

So this isn't about just lyrical or just MC'ing just overall who do YOU think is under/over rated?

IMO

Overrated - Lil Wayne

I agree with this list, except the bolded. When was the last time you've heard anyone mention him?
Max B is also greatly overrated he seems to have a show a week in Hartford alone, and last time I was in Harlem every car that passed by was playing him, not sure how he gotten so popular in the Tri state area.

Jay Z and Eminen are the most overrated by far.

Eminem is probably one of the last few good 'discovered' artists out there. I mean, back in the day bands got discovered all the time. Nowadays it's easier just to force feed shit to people.

I find it funny that some of the most original and -- I hate to say it -- influential artists nowadays are in rap.

Based on his horrendous SNL performance:
