Fav Underground Artists?
hey i just started getting really into underground hip-hop. i listen to mostly some known ones like common, gang starr, black star, aceyalone, dilated poeples, jurassic 5,hieroglyphics crew. I would like to expand even more. Can you tell me who some really good artists are that i should get? thanks
-C Rayz Walz
-Scienz Of Life
What About Siah And Yeshua EP...
Wee Bee Foolish
There are alot but i think if you signed to a major label you are not underground anymore...Seems alot of artist wanna claim to be underground while they are in there videos popping mo and talking about ICE..
..defidently Binary Star...
..Ras Kass..get Gurus Jazzmatazz albums...
anything that doesnt get rotation on TRL or BET is basically "underground" hiphop nowadays.
yo, first i wanna congrat u on getin in the underground, i think u shoud listen to the outsidaz and i strongly belive that pacewon well bless u wit the underground an dont forget about the groch and living legends and get the indepent lable supportin Visonires, J-Live, pete rock, das efx(oldshit), and cant 4 get Both Soundbombins cause dialted is tight too, but i would say Tash-Rap Life would Be the first album u should cop. Second- every Lost Boyz
yeah i believe someone earlier wrote wu-tang for underground to. i know about gang starr, and didn't mean they were like your typical underground group, but i wouldn't consider them that commercial either. i mean their bigger than most, but it's not like they have ever sold out. i don't know but in my opinion gang starr is more underground than wu-tang.
Most of these groups aren't underground ,but they are real hip hop !!
Got to say right now XL by Large Pro and the x-men is my hottest track ....
artist wise -
-pete rock and cl
-j-zone and the old maid billionaires
-the whole eastern conference thing
-The whole little rawkus black revolution (talib & Hi tek ,mos ,pharoah ,common ,black thought ,last emperor etc....)
-Nottz (ill arse producer for real)
-apathy and celph titled
-D.I.T.C (all of them ,classics, mostly solo shit though)
-tooooooo many to name!!!!!!
vakill,juice,molemen,binary star,athletic mic league,akrobatik,clokworx
vinced, shut the fuck up.
its fuckin dumb that people dont listen to commercial music just because its commercial. As long as mellow hasn't heard of gangstarr, i recommend that he does.
how about this?
Jurassic 5 = underground haha, yea just what i thought.
i think you'd like Mr. Lif - Enter the Collossus (my spelling sucks), Akrobatik - The EP, and Breez Evaflowin' - Pro-Files the EP. they are all like 10 bills or whatever -definitally worth it.
Check out Akbar, you can check it out on this site - it's an ill album, with a lot of knownledge.
VinceD, to some people, anything not on TRL is underground. Don't make fun of him for not being exposed to it, tough guy.. knowing about Gang Starr doesn't make you a superior human being to him.
gang starr = underground haha
