R.A. the rugged man - good guest artist, but never put out a worthwhile album of his own
apathy - i'd say this guy's considered a legend, considering all the hype behind his early mixtapes, the crazy success of the supergroup projects he headed, etc.
celph titled - same as apathy
louis logic - should have put out more projects. he's alright
gif of gab - i agree with this one
C murder(say what you will i like his albums) - jail
big boi - this guy is on one of the most famous and renowned duos in hip hop history
cee lo green - his popularity transcended the genre, because of his work with dangermouse
khujo - backup dancer
cormega - considered a legend by most, even though i wouldn't say he deserves it
common - one of the most recognized and praised rappers in the world, today
talib kweli - mos def's roadie. super inconsistent solo artist, and a pretty nerdy rapper that doesn't live up to the supposed "conscious" label that's bestowed on him
black thought - seriously? this guy gets heap of praise

and none of those female emcees lived up to their potential/hype

legends never die is a fuckin masterpiece
apathy never gets the credit he deserves as far as am concerned

c murder i have heard three albums from him and love them all


big boi yes he famous but people will allways mention 3000 first when big boi is just as good as him
common another great mc who just doesnt get the props he deserves

talib kweli nerdy concious or whatever but everything he throws is nothing but fire

that, i think, is because big boi can sometimes lean too much on the fast rap gimmick. whereas andre kept it straight. i wouldn't say big boi's as good as andre. not to say he ain't dope, andre's just one of the special ones.

it feels like rappers that resort to fast rap tend to get completely pigeonholed as fast rappers. as in, the audience suddenly perceives them as being one note - that note being very fast. even now, just thinking in my head of bone thugs, twista, big boi, gift of gab, etc., i immediately think of them rapping crazy fast. as if that's all they had/have.

so i think big boi might sometimes get unfairly, and not even consciously, neglected by fans as being more one note than andre. i mean, you think of andre, you think of his different styles; he could give you a track like return of the g, a track like hey ya, and a track like prototype. he's diverse. whereas, when you think of big boi, you think of him rapping fast on a track.

something about fast rapping seems to consume audience perception, and somehow make it feel like that's all the fast rapping rapper is capable of.

maybe i'm talking out of my ass here. i'm literally just thinking this all out aloud, right now, on the spot.

I think better nominations would be those like K-Rino or even Canibus, Beast1333, guys who can rap their asses off about any topic and say the dopest shit, but sometimes suffer from wack beats to a lot of people so no one really listens. Then, I guess it depends on if you mean underrated on here or in the real world (mainstream).

I'm thinking of deep sleepers.

Killa Sin for sure. I can't recall a sub par verse.

Wordsworth. Mirror Music was a solid album. He had some good guest spots also.

La The Darkman just off Heist of the Century and various Wu collaborations.

When people attempt to say Big Boi is on the same tier as Andre, that shit is laughable.

Big Boi has done loads of forgettable shit since Andre stopped rapping. Also, you'll be hard pressed to find one song, just one where Big Boi had the better verse than Andre. That is my opinion though.

One day, when Andre opens up the vault, maybe when hes dead or whatever, then the consensus that Andre was the catalyst for all the DF catalog will be cemented.

Hating on Hey Ya is understandable. But the mass crossover appeal alone has to be respected, even on a site like this. Soccer moms in their 40's still sing along to that song.

I listen to The Love Below more than Speakerboxxx. Off that last track alone.

Canibus is also a good one.

People always try to criticize him for lyrical miracling everything. I never understood that criticism.

All of his early work and guest spots, especially the clean up verse he did on Fantastic Four, are cemented in my brain. Also Hell with Monch. He is a top tier jump on someone else's track and rip shit up.

His solos are all hit or miss though besides RTJ. But if you just compiled his 50 best songs and forget all the clutter and stuff he put out, you got an optimal playlist.

His voice is dope also.

Any slim chance of seeing a Sin solo album vanished now that he's serving 16 years to life. Such wasted potential.

What I was getting at with the DOOMStarks and Sin talk was that both projects will never happen.

For Sin, he is just a hooligan and he will never see freedom again. That shit boggles the mind.

I don't know what the hell is going on with the DOOMStarks, but I have a feeling we will never get it. It will be sitting right next to Madvilliany 2 on the what-if lists of hip hop. I stopped getting my hopes up with all that.

Anyone who actually believes Big Boi is superior to Andre... I can't take their opinions seriously. Write them off completely.

B-1 hardly any material which is a shame
Hardhead/ Ali Strange classic LP not much since
MF GRimm not really underrated to those that know, he is ill such a great discog, flows, content, voice
Curoc UK old school MC previously with Gunshot but his recent work with Soops is so dope
K-Sly another old UK legend bit of americanism but classic tracks and LP
Brother J is so good but not so much on the last two releases, but he is great
Wise Intelligent another great MC again his later stuff has been a bit inconsistent
Tricky/3d/ Daddy G all unique all dope
Chuck D at one point the point the most popular MC in Hip Hop period. Powerful voice and content, he is slept on by post P.E. era fans. Few missteps in later years but first 3 LP's and tracks here and there since....

some not really underrated but don't come up on top MC lists very often

1...MF GRIMM - Not fully underrated, but doesn't receive the full props that he truly deserves....He has dropped some of the illest bars in history.....Top 5...PERIOD..

2...SAAFIR - Ahead of his time in many ways...Street, lyrical, battle ready, concepts, stories, etc....

3...Jihad from Third Sight - Some of his beat selections are WHATEVER, but their is no denying he is nasty...Vocab, battle ready, insane patterns, etc...

4...KILLA SHA (RIP) - THE ESSENCE...NUFF SAID..

5....INSPECTOR DECK - Not really feeling his new stuff to tough, but at one time I considered him the illest in the clan...

6...SCARAMANGA - I wish he would come back with Godfather Don and show these so-called stream of consciousness dudes how it is properly done...

7..TOMMY GUNN (MIC) - GO BACK AND LISTEN TO "RAIN BLOOD" A FEW TIMES......ILL...

8...BLACK I - (RIP) - Go back and listen to "No Laws" and "Where I'm From"......Classic, next level skills....
