Fabolous is getting better, much better. I also concur with you that Ja Rule is the most overrated artist ever. He's straight garbage, so is Petey "I can't rap I talk crap" Pablo.

Eminem is overrated, which doesn't mean he's not the best.

Ja Rule, 50 Cent, just like what Martino said, nearly all the rappers these days are overrated.

The most underated, Shyne......for his first album atleast. It was the best album ever.

Thank you Mr. President for showing us your lack of rap knowledge. :D
knowledge? what knowledge? He sucks, that's the way I feel about his "work". To be fair (I really don't like giving in to the likes of Tottiboy and Eminem to admit they do anything right ever but so be it.. :lazy: ) he has improved a great deal from the bs that got everyone all excited. real slim shady and co was utter trash. But I see the progression cause doing dumb shit usually gives you a wide audience and then you can play on that later when you move on to actual music.

2pac IS overrated, but it doesnt make him bad. I just think that people make him bigger than he really is.

His music is good, but considering the amount of songs he released, it doesnt hold the high standard...

Eminem is also kinda overrated, but within music, i think he has acomplished more than 2pac. All ems previous album has been a succes, while only 1 album from tupac is going to be remembered, All Eyez On Me.

Dr. Dre is on the other hand the biggest of them all if you ask me... He has released 2 albums, and both of them are beeing consideret as ELITE of rap.
And even when he doesnt sing, he produces songs. And almost every song he produces haves a HIT guaranty. He has helped bug names like, Eminem, Snoop, Fifty, Obie and even 2pac.

wonder why is that? maybe because back then rap wasnt what is is now.

Well, you must not have listened to his earlier albums, because there were so many tracks that were pure genious. Even if you do not like him, you must give credit where it is due, Martino.

If you don't like someone, do you listen extensively to their music? Obviously not, I'm not well informed about his music, I'm just going by what I hear when I happen to hear it on radio, tv, whatever.

I *just* gave him credit, what do you want from me? :D

But if you want me to change your mind, gimme some songs that you think are so great..
