Okay these cats at Blender are obviously smoking something. I am not going to even go on a rant because it is a waste of time. I will let his die-hard fans rip them a new a**hole and just watch it unfold.

 

 

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 killed 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.

  2. 4rl wtf brah pac is the shit he isnt ova rated he jus the best rapper there is nobody is close 2 rappin like him so fuck you

  3. Oh WAAAAH. Can you hear yourselves? You’re like the Muslims screaming about the Danish cartoons several months ago. God forbid anyone say anything about your precious Gangster Rap Messiah. Well y’know what? He IS overrated. Compared to say…Chuck D or Afrika Bambataa his music is pathetic and limp, and has only served to inspire those mainstream rap artists that suck so horribly, but get played ad hoc on MTV.

    THERE. I SAID IT. Live with my words.

    PS: I don’t give a damn if anyone posting says they’re never going to buy Blender magazine again, because chances are you never bought it in the first place, braincases.

  4. The Blender only represents a suburban group of writers (sorta like MTV’s Hip-hop (Inane) Brain Trust. These guys hated Pac when he was going after Biggie and the whole East Coast. Pac took on, Nas, Jay, Puffy and Biggie (along with the wackass Junior Mafia). Ever since then, these types (Sway, Shehiem, and others) have wanted to erase Pac from our memory. Because they know, when they start talking about Biggie, Nas and Jay as some of the greatest of all time, those of us who are not fooled by their power of the suburban machine, remember how Pac was getting in their ass and eat all of those fools up! Pac’s death is the best thing that happened to East Coast music, I hate to say it, because as long as he was alive, they would never be able to rise like they did after he died. So this article doesn’t surprise me. That’s why I hit em up on my website too, check it out, yo, Boonation.com!

  5. So let me guess , your next article will be about biggie.
    So that mean Biggie is overrated too then.
    There is no possible way you can say Pac is overrated and not Biggie.

  6. BLENDER who wrote this up huh?
    one of your tight pants wearin fruit cake writers.
    He kissed a Boy and liked ittttt!!!
    Can I personally smack the ishh out of em
    one after the other with a Hip hop Bible.

  7. My boy Juan wrote about Tupac in Blender on HN and to be honest I kinda think Tupac is seriously overrated. What makes him this rap god that people try to make him? I’ll give credit where credit is due. He was good when he was alive but would he still be relevant today if he had never died?
