Sep 4 - Dead rapper 2Pac tops "overrated" music list
 

 
LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Dead rapper Tupac "2Pac" Shakur, the hip-hop icon who sold more records after he was murdered than during his brief career, is the most overrated person in music, according to music magazine Blender.

Shakur tops a tongue-in-cheek list that also includes "places, trends and other junk in rock," Blender said in its upcoming October issue, due on newsstands next week.

Other overrated finalists included the Grammys at No. 7, encores at No. 12, Pink Floyd at No. 14 and "the music you loved as a teenager" at No. 23.

Shakur, a "gangsta" rapper who showed his sensitive side in movies, was k!lled during an unsolved drive-by shooting in Las Vegas in 1996. More than a dozen albums have been released in the ensuing years, and his image is almost as ubiquitous as that of Che Guevara or Bob Marley.

But while Shakur was a decent rapper with "insane rock-star charisma," according to Blender, he also "larded records with self-mythologizing, mediocre filler."

It's not the first time the pages of Blender have been used to bring down Shakur a few notches. In its June issue, rapper Lil Wayne listed him among his top five rappers, but then admitted: "I can't front: I was never into Pac."

As for the Grammys, the music industry's top awards, Blender said sitting through the ceremony was "like watching paint dry on Celine Dion's forehead."

And encores were notable chiefly for allowing bands to go backstage and do drugs while fans wonder if they should beat the rush to the parking lot, Blender said.

Veteran British rock band Pink Floyd, meanwhile, were responsible for "unbearable LSD slapstick" and "self-important bombast." And Blender warned that teenagers' brains "can inflate a great band to Christ-size proportions" and turn a bad song into the most meaningful.

If Pac would've survived, who knows where his flow, delivery, or musical genious may have grew to. I mean, he died at 25 so think about how many rappers besides Pac; other than Biggie; was this young and this good? 2pac is where Lil Wayne will NEVER be....

Tongue-in-cheek is a term used to refer to humor in which a statement, or an entire fictional work, is not meant to be taken seriously, but its lack of seriousness is subtle. The Oxford English Dictionary defines it as "Ironic, slyly humorous; not meant to be taken seriously".


at people gettin all pissed, or happy because they agree.

Pac is overrated because of the sh*t he recorded and never intended to release was release anyway.

He was like a beatmaker,whatever came to his head he recorded it right then and there.

You think Tupac wanted to have 12 albums after his death? NO!

anybody who's human being referred to as "black jesus" is overrated. but that dont mean he aint still one of my favorites (top 3). n*ggas be on his sh*t a lil too much sometimes, and i think that has affected how people see him now in a negative way.

What are you talking about? Pac wrote lyrics, he didn't just sit around free-styling on a mic for records like "lil wayne & jay-z" does. What made Pac special was the fact he could put an album together with "So Many Tears" then flip it to "Dear Momma" or "Keep your head up". Lil Wayne had B.G. wiping the snot away from his nose when Pac was making music. That is why he didn't really rock with Pac.

I wonder if Jay-Z was on that list??? He is like the Rockets when M.J. retired, they would have never won those 2 titles. Jay-Z would be a average if BIGGIE & Pac didn't die when they did.

Watch the hate now.

I used to think Pac was the greatest thing since sliced bread but since then I came to realize Hip-Hop is a lot deeper then him. I can still fu*ks with Pac but at the end of the day he isn't even my favorite dead rapper (big l, pun)
