In the rap industry there are thousands of artists.....but some of them that are quality artist often go unoticed and crappy artists dwell in the spotlight......I personally believe that some of those rappers are Bubba Sparks and Killa Mike they are both good rappers with lyrical word play but because they actually have something to say I think they are not noticed.......who else do you thinks is underrated & overrated and why?

Tough one maybe Jadakiss,Styles P, Trae. Maybe Nas in the sense that he is probably the best rapper to ever live not my favourite but not far off i would still admit he is the best rapper. But everyone will always associate that title with BIG and pac

Sorry had to correct the spelling of that dude for ya, man. But anyway, I co-sign with you..........and I've said this to many ppl, Keith Murray's lyrical word-play is so bananas that it's unbelievable that he's being covered in the shadows by so many other people.

i dont think common is under rated anymore i just think he's not popular among this generation ... by this i mean the soulja boy/aye bay bay generation

common is gettin tv time & movies hes in the spotlight as much as he probably wants, but remember hes kinda a low key guy, doesnt thrive on the spotlight

That may be true about common but.........seriously I didn't know Common was a good lyrical artist till recently...I think there is just some rappers that appeal ro older audiences who think with more than their right side of the brain......when i was younger....I loved Right Brain Music...i.e. Lil Jon, Ying Yang Twins and a plethora of other BS songs! But all in all I still believe that maybe....he is under-rated.

^^I've been seeing Common in movies for awhile, I mean not just recently but older movies. I wouldn't consider him new to the acting industry.
