    Lupe Fiasco

    Jedi Mind Tricks

    Pharoahe Monch



    Ben Sharpa



    Aesop Rock



    Immortal Technique

    Del The Funky Homosapien

    Big Pun


    Immortal Technique


    Just to name a few. Just give some a listen and branch out from there. There are way too many to name.

  • You need to look online for the websites that have mixtapes. Its the only truly underground music thats not on the radio. Artists that you know have better things that is on the mixtape scene. Artists like:

    Gucci Mane


    Wacka Flacka

    Shawty Lo


    AND LAST BUT NOT LEAST LIL WAYNE>>>I've lost count of the amount of mixtapes Lil Wayne and Gucci have....

    SPM is a rapper that is really big in this country without radio play. No other rapper can do that.
