    mobb deep, lil kim, dead prez, gang starr, nas, beanie sigel, styles p, talib kweli, are NOT underground.

    you're just trying to promote an idea that you know more about music than anyone else. instead of that you should probably try incorporating your ideals in the 100's of other threads that talk about those artists.

    rap/hip hop is about progression and change, just like anything else in life. if you can't handle change, then don't. but i learned to appreciate music, and not dwell on the past. i remember/respect the past, and i hope for the future.
  3. Hell yeah dude, I was just actually about to make a fourm about this until I saw that you already made one :)

    I'll post some of my shit here in a bit...

    Much love :smoking:

  5. good thread Idea but like boosh said its been done so many times before and the very first song you posted "the blast" was shown on mtv so many times, amazing song but def not underground just like almost every artist you posted. Theres a difference between old school quality hip hop and underground hip hop.

    Rap isn't dead fool. You just heard Nas say hip hop was dead and then you just hopped on his dick with everyone else. Your shitting on the MC's who are still making real rap and rockin shows. Zion I is rockin shows, Aesop Rock is rockin shows, Hiero and Souls are rockin show, and KRS is still making new albums. I'm seein Nas on the 25th with Damian Marley, so rap is still alive. And the majority of the people you mentioned are not underground. Instead of just surfing the internet and reading hip hop is dead go out to some shows and get into some cyphers, and then you'll see rap is alive.

    Both tracks came out with in the last few years and they're not underground

    EDIT: Actually NONE of the people you mentioned are really underground except for Bahamadia and she's ok.

  9. u didnt mention doom or little brother..i consider them both fairly mainstream tho..
  10. Ya fellas should listen to some Eligh, Del/Hiero, Souls of Mischief, etc..
  11. you really jus say Nas in undergound? lol

    think ur definition of underground is a little off
  12. you gotta let that old shit go, when you do you can begin to appreciate all the new dudes coming up that are straight killing shit

    most of those dudes you listed arent underground, theyre just old as hell and past their prime
  13. bump. this thread deserves some lovin' :)
