K so instead of those "lupe is overrated" threads where we just argue back and forth about one artist, tell us who the most overrated artist is to you personally.

to me, its gotta be lil wayne. understand, i don't dislike wayne, but i just can't understand how he got so big. his voice sounds like he's still going through puberty or has a cold or something. i think i like dude's image more than i like his music. i like him as a celebrity, but not as an artist so much.

so what about the rest of you?

well lupe is the most overrated when he puts out an album. people say he's a genius. too bad the only thing he has over southern rappers is a good flow. he's only good for that.

Lil wayne is overrated all the time. people say he's the best because he claims he's the best but what has he done to prove that? he did lollipop which has the same lyrical content as any other hip pop single.

and pac is overrated because he's dead. he has a few good songs the rest are just average. but hey i know im going to get flamed for this post anyways.
