they do get a lot of love from hiphop fans but it's just that loads of hiphop fans like to go against the stream whatever it takes. as soon as someone becomes succesful, even if they do it 100% their owen way, they'll start hating it. hiphop fans always want to be underground etc. the only way you'll get all of them to like a certain artist is if the artist dies.


big l suddenly became everbody's favorite rapper and jdilla suddenly changed their lives. bull**** since 90% of them never heard ofbig l before he died and most of them were on premiers dick before they hopped on jdilla's dead weener.

nothing worse than the dilla stans. "dilla changed my life" i have something smart to say any time i see a herb with that t-shirt on. great producer but he's so overrated... it's funny what death can do to your legacy.

people do tend to overrate him now. however, having said that, to me he's top 10 all time.

the group i despise the most is the nu-dilla stans who haven't heard anything beyond 'donuts', but read about his passing on pitchfork media and adopt him as their new favourite artist.

outkast is another one of those "we rap about more than just gangster stuff so the underground overrates us like whoa" acts, similar to gza and common.

thats my word.

Well, when Outkast was on top, there really was no "underground". Underground was a term that evolved around 2000 roughly, once rap really went commercial around the late 90's (1997 to be exact IMO).
