Artists that are Over or Under Rated because of Rap?
Posted 3/21/09
I know that SOME people DON'T respect Hip Hop or DON'T like it. Well just try to respect it because it's a culture.

Anywayz. I want to ask you people. Can you say some singers are OVER or UNDER Rated because of rap? I mean SOME songs can be respected. But some are just crappy and don't make sense. BUT do you think singers are OVER or UNDER Rated because of rap? Is it because people just don't like rap that's why they think it sucks? Well if it's okay name some that are GOOD or BAD. Share your opinion. 'Cause I think there are SOME that are overrated. But it's sad that some are underrated. :*(

Singers...? Do you mean rappers? Like, I think I get what you're asking but at the same time, I'm not quite getting it so I'm going to the answer this the best way I can.

I think Rap is both overrated and underrated. Overrated because of the crap that usually tops the charts (like Souja Boy *shudders*) and this in turn, causes a lot of people who are fans of other genres (or lovers of 'old school rap') to turn their noses up and underrate the genre as a whole. The most ignorant persception is that all rappers are about "getting money", are stupid, uneducated, and think of all women as whores. But then, with the videos and most of the material you see and hear in mainstream, who could really blame them? But, it still isn't fair to generalize and diss the entire genre. As for the actual rappers, yes, I do believe most of them are overrated and I absolutely can't tolerate their music. Kanye, Jay-Z, and Lil Jon being some of the main offenders. But then there are good ones who have a cool flow and can actually rap though I may still not particularly like a lot of their songs like Lil Wanye, T.I., Eminem, and Ludacris. Even so, I'm not particularly a big fan of rap, I hardly even like to hear just a small break in another song. But, like most music, if it's good to my ears, I'll listen to it.

Almost all rappers are underrated. Particularly American ones. Bitches be too busy hatin' too realize they're all bros.

Except Nicki Minaj can get out. And Yoo Bin shouldn't even be allowed to rap.

Overrated: 99% of mainstream rap.
Underrated: Rap songs about anything other than "spindin' dat money an' drankin' dem foteys an' bish slappin' dem hoes".

It seems like the rap industry today is mainly focused on the background music and how filthy lyrics can get. I've just stopped listening because I'm tired of constantly hearing songs about sex and violence (and that's not just rap!) I've had enough.

I'd say any famous artist who got that way because he/she sang about such things in pretty much every song is overrated.

Well, I don't like her. Um, no. But wait to jump to conclusions.
No, I don't think they are, and I agree that a lot have talent. I just don't like Yoo Bin and Nicki Minaj.
