  • Most overrated and underrated albums from popular rappers?

    Let me stress the fact that these are not the best are worst from these artists. In fact, every one of the artists I'm mentioning has put out better and worse (with the exception of The Predator) than the ones I'm listing.

    Jay-Z's most overrated album: The Blueprint, which has mostly mediocre beats and only slightly above average rhymes.
    Jay-Z's most underrated album: The Blueprint 2, which has much better beats and more interesting content, although still definitely not his best.

    2Pac's most overrated album: All Eyez On Me. Although, there seems to be so much backlash against it recently, I don't know if I would call it underrated anymore. About two thirds of it is dope, which makes for more than a single album's worth of good tracks and almost a single album full of wack ones.
    2Pac's most underrated album: R U Still Down? Not very many people know this, but he did plan to release this. It might not be on the same level of his better work on Death Row, but it's better than the filler on he put out on Death Row. Above average rhymes and beats.

    Ice Cube's most overrated album: The Predator. By the standards of the rap game, this an average album. By the standards of a legend and pioneer like Ice Cube's standards, it's garbage. Boring beats, rhymes that sound like freestyles instead of memorable stories, and content that just retreads Death Certificate bring this album down, even though Cube's presence and rhyming ability is as good as ever. "It Was a Good Day" is the only classic here, and even that is not his best. I think this is his worst album.
    Ice Cube's most underrated album: The War Disk. This could possibly be the most underrated hip hop album I've ever heard. Not as good as his first two classics, but close. The beats and rhymes are dope as hell, and I never understood why people hate on this album.

    There's more than this, but these are just some ones I felt like venting about. What do you guys think?

            2Pac's All Eyez On Me is the most overrated hip-hop album ever. I skipped about three-fourths of the tracks on it. The production on these songs is mediocre to horrible, and Pac was never that great of a lyricist. The thing about this album is that it spanned some great singles, so everyone thinks it's good. But take away the singles, and you've got a very shitty album. On a good cd, you could take away the singles and still have a lot of the best tracks on there. This can't be said for "All Eyez On Me." Lots of people probably love this album also because it came right before 2Pac died so it holds some special memories of him or something.

            I don't think he has any underrated albums, because to me you can skip atleast 5 songs on each one, excluding Me Against The World. They can't really be underrated because masses of fans hail all his albums as works of art.

                    ^ agree with that 100 %. Apart from the singles the album is nothing than an average hip hop album.

                    Also agree that Grand Champ from DMX is definitly overrated. I only like one or two songs. In my opinion all negative criticism about this album is right, but mostly I read good criticism.
