I've stumbled upon more than 12 different threads on NL . . . all in respect of underrated artistes . . . mostly rappers . . .
I ain't seen many on the overrated ones.
The few I've seen are mostly indirect . . . mostly passing references to an artiste . . . or asking if an artiste is overrated or not . . . not a thread that wholly seeks to make a long list of overrated acts . . .
This thread seeks to do that.
Now, understand this - an artiste might be actually great . . . but when he/she gets a mark more than is naturally deserved, that's overrating . . .
Example, Artiste XYZ ought to get an 80% pass mark . . . he/she gets anything between 81 and 100, (s)he's being overrated . . .
This ain't about Rap artistes only. Any genre will do.
Mine's a short list . . . and they're rappers: Eminem, 50 Cent, G-Unit . . .
Got any? Post 'em.
