SOHH Exclusive: "I Can Tell You Who I Think Is Overrated, Jay-Z"

While Jay-Z may have lost Rolling Stone's "King of Hip-Hop" title to Eminem this week, pop singer Sabrina tells SOHH he easily earns the crown for as the most overrated rapper.

Although Sabrina is not a fan of Hov's latest offerings, she did admit to liking the material he released prior to achieving rap mogul status.

"I can tell you who I think is overrated," Sabrina told SOHH when asked to name who she feels is the most underrated rapper in hip-hop. "Jay-Z. Definitely. I might take some heat for that one but I just, I don't know. My fiance is a huge fan and he quotes lyrics and I'm just like, 'Dude, that's not even smart.' I don't know. I miss his old stuff. [I saw] videos of him when he was just starting, when he wasn't really well-known and he can really rap. I didn't realize he could. He always sings off beat, you know? He can really rap but I just wish he could go back to that style that he first started out with. That was hot. What he does now, I don't feel it at all -- I really don't feel him at all. I like Kanye [West's] creativity and his image and the stuff he puts out visually. I love. I love the fact he's a designer. I can't stand his attitude. That to me is such a turn off to girls. But his stuff? Give or take. He's a real artist." (SOHH)

A few years ago, a Houston Press writer labeled Jay as "America's Most Overrated Rapper".

A more appropriate title for Jay-Z is Most Overrated Rapper. Ever. With Tuesday's release of his second post-retirement album -- inspired by the movie American Gangster and, if the leaked single "Blue Magic" is any indication, crappy -- it's time to clear the air. Rap critics fear that the guy they've loved for so long has fallen off, but it's time to face facts. He was never really on. (Houston Press)

On the contrary, model-turned-reality star Miss Tila recently told SOHH she believes Hov is the King of New York.

"I have much respect for Nas, he's done a lot for the hip-hop community but I definitely, yeah, I don't think anybody can beat Jay-Z at this point," Tila told SOHH when asked who she views as the King of New York. "Jay-Z's definitely the King of New York. I've been his fan ever since he was just running around with Foxy Brown. I grew up in Houston, Texas [and] I just watched his career grow and grow and he's just a huge mogul. It's very inspiring so I thought, 'Hey, maybe I can move out to New York and follow in his footsteps.'" (SOHH)

A couple years ago, Jay-Z explained why he crowns himself as the "Best Rapper Alive".

"But when I say I'm the best, I don't say that outta my a**," Jay said in an interview. "I say that with all my stats behind me. I put that against anybody. I mean anybody. I really believe that...I believe in a lot of things. I believe that 'SportsCenter' is the best thing on TV. I shouldn't have to prove it. But I do have these stats to prove it. I'm talking about real run. I'm not talking about years off. I'm talking about straight--boom, boom, boom--back to back. We're not talking about heritage acts either. We're not talking about respect what I've done. I'm talking No. 1 [albums] 10 times. The Beatles is the only one [to have more No. 1 albums]. They got 19, and if I get a surge of creativity, I could make nine albums next year." (XXL Magazine)

what's funny about rap is that ....the only thing that can actually matter are stats...and Jay-Z's stats are ridiculous. Eminem is the only one with stats like that, for so long. People don't feel him the same because...sh*t, he doesn't rap the same. It's hard to be 25 and rap the same way when you're rich as fu*k, married, and damn near 50. life isn't the same.

Took the words right out of my mouth.

The internet gives too many people who have 0 credentials too big of a podium to voice their opinion(s) to the masses.

F-ck your thoughts, Sabrina. :dancingcool:
