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.

Ohh how sweet it is to find out that some of your most sanitized commercial artists are really not as squeaky clean and dumb as you would like them to be. With political season in high gear, it is only right that a R&B mega-star would add some of her most controversial theories to an image that has always been just shut up and sing.

There’s another side to Alicia Keys: conspiracy theorist. The Grammy-winning singer-songwriter tells Blender magazine:

“‘Gangsta rap’ was a ploy to convince black people to kill each other. ‘Gangsta rap’ didn’t exist.”

Keys, 27, said she’s read several Black Panther autobiographies and wears a gold AK-47 pendant around her neck “to symbolize strength, power and killing ’em dead,” according to an interview in the magazine’s May issue, on newsstands Tuesday.

Another of her theories: That the bicoastal feud between slain rappers Tupac Shakur and Notorious B.I.G. was fueled “by the government and the media, to stop another great black leader from existing.”
