Alright this thread is for underated rappers or music artists. Name anyone you think is underated and post. I'll start off with Masta Ace
BIG K.R.I.T. This is my favorite song from him.
Curren$y is also underrated in my opinion.
az, royce da 5'9'', talib kweli, mos def is so underrated, i think lupe is a lil underrated tho lasers wasnt that great cuz of atlantic records
theres more underrated rappers i just cant think of them right now..
j.cole is kinda underrated to
"gettin money till my pockets need a tummy tuck."-j cole
Stalley is straight dope just heard him for the first time a lil while ago
Wizard of Oz- nice addition, have to check into him, that like that song
Universal- az,black star, and royce the 5'9(Bad meets Evil and Slaughterhouse might bring him back if they continue on) are good ones too
Quinned35- will check him out
Keep them coming(might make a overated thread too, that list is huge haha)
Yea Big K.R.I.T is underrated
J.Cole is underrated too evrybody knows him but nobody really listen to his music, I hate fake fans of him
but the most underrated rapper to me has to Kendrick Lamar by far I ask everybody do they him they be like "WHO!!! -___- he's like the best lyrcist in the game right now go check out HiiiPower and his Album Section 80 you'll be blowin away like way I never heard of him
Big KRIT is underrated. Return of 4eva was one of the best mixtapes i ever heard.
Also PacDiv and the Cool Kids are underrated IMO
Ok, I am biased because he's an actor/rapper/singer/comedian/producer and He is one of the hardest working individuals in the entertainment business. His facebook page has less than 100,000 fans but his Culdesac mixtape was one of the best ones. He may not be in the lines of a lyricist as a J. Cole or Kendrick Lamar but he does have A TON of great lines. Sometimes he can make something catchy enough for the radio. Other time he breaks down a story and make it relatable to us. He's black but he often gets picked on because he's too "white" (whatever that means)... but now, he's got a "I DONT CARE WHAT PEOPLE THINK" attitude and he's arguable my favortie rapper. He's very underrated IMO
This is Celph Titled, a MC I think I was underrating for quite a while. He had a fantastic combination with Buckwild (producer associated with DITC), called "Nineteen Ninety Now". Here is a track of him killing 4 Primo beats:
By the way, J. Cole is officially no longer underrated. I do not know a person who is more talked about on this site. He is good, but I do not see him as being underrated, especially not by this site, lol.
Off the top...some truly UNDERRATED rappers/groups...
- Do or Die...my fav rap group of all time

- Styles P
- Black Hippy
- Dead Prez

Welcome To Strangeland is fire...it leaked but will be available Nov. 8
The best band no one knows about is Sublime. Punk-thrash/reggae with hip-hop samples. Songs about KRS-One, covers of Peter Tosh and the Greatful Dead. Sound too good to be a three piece band.
LEROY JENKINS IS THE MOST UNDERRATED RAPPER..JUST CHECK HIM OUT IN ACTION:

These two are straight...but i still hate Tyler(Turtle) the Creator
I May Be Wrong
DonTrip is up-and-coming too...
^^ Huge Hopsin fan right here! This dude is gunna blow up, he's got a pretty good following online though
Dopest album of the year so far IMo
To paraphrase from Toy Story, Future doesn't rap, he mumbles with style.
LMAO, I agree sometimes it is hard to understand what he says, but he's got a couple of nice tracks like the one I posted is probably the best song I've heard from him.
His hooks are what gets him by tho.
Cunninlynguists are so underrated. They've been churning out some of the best stuff I've heard in the past decade. A piece of strange is an absolute work of art. Cage is pretty underrated too.
Just found out about this group this morning. I already bought their album off of Amazon. I know I could've downloaded it illegally, but I support good music.
Good look OJJ. I'm diggin this track, I'm gonna look em up asap. Thanks.
big L got ill lyrics. shame he got shot before rock-a-fella signed him
Little Brother aka The Phonte and 9th Wonder show
Josh Baze is underrated.
Logic... He is ridiculously talented
Electric Guest- "This Head that I Hold"
Yea Big K.R.I.T is underrated
