He's good because he's put alot of work into being a great MC and improved immeasurably over the years to the point he's the best around right now.
It also didn't hurt that he appeared as a guest on pretty much every rap/R&B song in the last 2 years and released consistently great mixtapes nearly ever day of last year.
As far as 'superstar' goes - yeah he is, but no more than Kayne West, T.I., Young Jeezy etc.

I was disappointed with...
...them at ATP. They looked really bored and it was quite mechanical. I left half way through, and I never imagined I would react in that way to seeing Polvo.
