are you insane? biggie overrated??, if you think so you have no clue about hiphop. biggie has exceptional flow. he has to be one the best rappers of all time. Lil wayne has no talent. how can you even compare the two.
I never "compared" them at all. Stop putting words in my mouth. I think Biggie is overrated when everybody is like "h3s th3 b3st ever!!!!!111"

Maybe I went too far with having him as the 6 most overrated, but it just gets annoying after a while, I would probably have him right below my top 10 at 12 or something. Lil Wayne is a talentless clown who wouldn't make a top 100 for all I care.

LOL at those who think Jay Z, Biggie, or Nas are overrated... New generation knows NOTHING about real lyrisist... My list includes... Jeezy, boosie, D4L, and every other snap rapper. Kill yoself with that nonsense... Jay Z would SMOKE your favorite rapper's favorite rapper. Ask Lil Wayne about Jay Z... He'll tell you that that dude is nice, you can't judge this by what you hear on the radio...

weezy sells records..unfortunitely his audience is mostly female and kids under the age of 18...
Hova is legendary. but the more he keeps rapping, the more wacker he is looking.
Jeezy is done. it's over for him, lil'boosie is finished as well, who da hell is laffy taffy ne way.(one hit wonder if that).Kanye is creative but crazy... T.I. is the realest but too full of his own sh**... Rick Ross is not talented @ all, but he has the right audience(the streets)and the right selection of music. B.I.G. and Pac Legends 4 eva...let them rest in peace. Rappers M.I.A.(twista, memphis bleek went from a rapper to a hype man, Beanie segal, gillie da kid"mr. publicity stunt", Eminem is trying, Mobb Deep sux, the whole texas went down the drain w/o UGK...Best group in rap eva UGK....

Lol Wayne. Emphasis on lol cause his rhymes jus crack me up. Well of u call them rhymes... More lyk pathetic garbage. His fans say he is ill and stuff. Yeh he definitely ill, he shud go see a doctor.
And biggie over rated?? Hell no! Two albums that are considered classic, before his untimely death. Platinum records mind u... And Big Poppa being certified as Diamond.

I used to lyk hip hop. I don't wanna stop listening but it is slowly happening. The troo hip hop was the 80s and 90s not the garbage of the noughties. Newayz I'm into grunge, heavy metal, death metal, nu metal, punk/pop rock, hard rock, alternative rock, emo/goth rock metal (eg evanescence).

So all u ppl can go fight over who better rapper but I have found sanctuary in rock. Weezy cannot ruin this. If he does try then I'll break his effin neck (Long Live the Vice Lords).
Adios losers.Btw rip biggie, pac, big l, ol'
dirty, eazy e and all the n****s in the struggle.

5 most overrated.....
50 cent (enough said)
B.I.G.(Won't break it down unless you're old enough to remember those times)
DMX.....(When his older than dirt written rhymes ran out & he couldn't recycle anymore, he became garbage....post "and then there was x". I liked DMX, B.C.........before crack)
Jay-Z (sorry, just because you're from NC, doesn't make you great.......hard pill 4 yall to swallow I know)
5th is reserved for any 15 minuet rapper/ group...Mimms, D4L, D12, mike jones, etc.(I never thought hip-hop would buy into "gimmic" rappers until the year 2000 came.....then all hell broke loose. Yall should be ashamed)
