    SpursandGermany100 DMX is a G.O.A.T

    Jun 10, 2017
    This is just my opinion and im not saying he doesnt deserve icon status because he does. But I think hes overrated and not in my top 20 OAT
    1. His career was short-lived , 88-94 was one of the best runs in rap but in 1996 his fate was compromised once he made that trash group and his rap career has never been the same.
    2. He isn't the best lyricist at all ,far from it actually. His poetry doesn't get you off your seat and make you go "holy s--- he is a amazing writer" , there are many more writers in hip hop who are more overrated as a lyricist because some of Cubes lyrics can be meaningful but they aren't abstract enough imo to be considered anywhere near the best.
    3. His flow is pretty simple
    4. His catalogue isnt strong enough against the best of the best when it comes to rap music , Cube has 2 definite classics but his catalogue probably isnt top 30 in rap tbh.

    That doesnt take away his fantastic delivery and storytelling in songs but Cube is overrated. If he didnt do movies , nobody would rank him top 15 OAT .
    Imo 4-5 NS MCs are better than Cube .

    What evidence in my post implies that im retaliating to Cube on that situation lmao? This is to do with rap , not political views
    Lets talk about rap rather than make false assumptions due to you being triggered by the post.
    Why dont you explain why Cube isn't overrated instead of throwing false assumptions smh?

    No, he does what hes trying to do perfectly. So what if he isn't abstract lmfao. He's more of a delivery + meaning type of rapper (kinda like Pac)

    ????? No you don't 2pac isn't abstract at all (And you got him in your top 10)
    Ice Cube is about the message and the delivery more than about technical skills and being abstract

    can't criticise Cube for having a short lived career when his NWA - Predator run was longer than Pac's entire career. Also, in terms of discography, I'd say it's unfair to criticise Cube when Jay, Common, DOOM and Nas all have stinkers.

    More of a sellout than overrated. You can't rap about the evil white man then take checks from Disney for kids movies
