Different than overrated or underrated, underachieving is for those artists who don't put out tunes like we know they are capable of.

Leading off......

Bunny Wailer ( he needs to get Rick Rubin to produce his next album)
Freddie Mcgregor (A great voice wasted on adult R&cool smiley
Ziggy Marley (for a man who can get any reggae musician to help record, he wallows in the depths of Jack Johnson's hammock)
Cocoa Tea (never has one man with such a voice, put out such predictable material on top of so-so rhythms)

Edging closer to underachieving status ....
Third World (albums of late don't sound like a band...just a producer and Bunny Rugs)
Burning Spear ( Small Axe worked for Bob because of the metaphor, Spears rants on record about dishonest producers and record labels gets tiring)

Vybz Kartel by far. Immensely skilled and talented his criminal past prevented him from blowing up in the US and now his criminal associations have him behind bars. He still records and releases material but talk about Underachieving, that is the height of it.

Bunny wailer still rides on the coat tails of bob and Peter . Probly largely because he can't sing?? I saw recent footage and the back up singers were the only thing that would have made that show tolerable

Fair choices; I'd throw Everton Blender out there. His output has been pretty much zero since the Star Trail posse broke up.
