Good underground songs?

Okay, so I'm looking for some good rap songs.

Songs that not a lot of people know about. None of that 'Lil Wayne, Pitbull, Too Short, David Banner kinda crap. I want the underground music. Please and thanks :)

    Just about any song off Fashawn's debut album "Boy Meets World" or Skyzoo's "The Salvation". Even some of Skyzoo's mixtapes like "Corner Store Classic" or "Cloud 9: The Three Day High". Also look at the California duo, Zion I.
