Tupac Tops Blender’s ‘Most Overrated’ List

Most hip-hop fans consider Tupac Shakur to be one of the greatest rappers of all time, and not just because of his untimely death, but mainly as an acknowledgment that the rap legend created some great music.

According to Blender magazine’s tongue-in-cheek ‘Most Overrated in Music’ list — featured in their October issue — Shakur had “insane rock-star charisma,” but ultimately was the “most overrated artist of all time.” What?! Blender goes on to say that although Pac was a respectable rapper, he “larded records with self-mythologizing, mediocre filler.” Note to Blender: Self-mythologizing is a pretty common trait among artists, especially songwriters.

Also overrated (according to Blender), the Grammys, encores, Pink Floyd and “the music you loved as a teenager.”
