with how hip hop has been heading, its due to young kids, who werent around when true 90s hip hop talent was around, which causes many performers, to be overrated

adj: said of a person, work of art, or phenomenon that recieves undeserved credit or popularity.

Note: lately, the word has been abused in popular culture to label something popular that the speaker simply dislikes or has an objection to on principle. Among fans of hip-hop, said speaker is often deemed a hater. In extreme cases, he/she is labeled a punk bitch.

Also note, there is no such thing as "overrated" in indie culture. When the word is uttered in the presence of an indie kid, it is often followed by disembodied moans and howls and said person melting like a snowball in Hell.
Person 1: Ke$ha is overrated.
Person 2: Amen to that.

Person 1: Lana del Rey is so overrated.

Person 1: Jay-Z is so overrated.
Hip-hop fan: You betta shut the fuck up, jealous punk bitch hater!

Person 1: Dude, Radiohead is so overrated.
