Sa-Roc - "Forever" - {Official Video}

Sa-Roc is the result of Real HipHop and Truth having a baby.  Probably my #1 favorite female Emcee over Lauryn Hill which says a lot for me.  I know most of y'all haven't heard of her before and it's cool "they" don't like intelligence done in black.  Not to mention she has more lyrical skills than all of the top mainstream rappers male or female.  I say this to say if we truly supported real talent, an artist like Sa-Roc would be as big as Michael Jackson.  

Real artist are so underrated mainly because being educated is not the narrative they promote, they want hard workers, not smart ones.  We seem to be forever stuck in this dumbed down version of HipHop and it is disgusting.  Before I go off on one of my long rants because this topic makes me upset.  When you know better, do better it's the only way to move the culture and our people forward, peace.

Stormzy - "Shut Up" - {Official Video}

Stormzy, another UK rapper who has been lightin' up the internet with his pen.  Before you know it our UK brothas will surpass us in the skilled lyricist department.  Don't get me wrong auto-tune has its place but every lowlife wannabe shouldn't be doin' it.  But hey I guess its better than knockin' some old lady down and taking their purse.

Chris Rivers - "I Just Wanna Rap" (Ft. Nitty Scott MC & Whispers) - {Video}

When Chris Rivers first set out on his grind to establish his name in HipHop we featured his freestyle on Sway In The Morning.  The son of Legendary Emcee Big Punisher was determined not to ride is fathers coattails by using his own name.  The plan worked, before announcing his royal bloodline he gains respect in the streets for being Lyrical Beast.  Ironically he sounds like his dad and at this rate, he will surpass his father's success.

Bas - "Clouds Never Get Old" - {Official Video}

This artist was brought to my attention a couple of months ago.  Bas kinda reminds me of a De La Soul version of Rick Ross, wait for it.......riiigght lol.  I love the simple things he raps about along with his lyrical skills and creativity.  If I'm correct this is one of J Cole's homeboys who has featured on a couple of his singles.  Take a listen below and tell us what you think.

Talib Kweli / 9th Wonder - "Every Ghetto" (Ft. Rapsody) - {Video}

Once again REal HipHop at its' finest, with the likes of Talib Kweli, 9th Wonder, Rapsody, and Hi-Tek how can you ever go wrong.  If they had one more legend on this track they would have formed Voltron.  But nevertheless, this track is flawless from Bars to Beat everything is on point.  This is HipHop in its purest form...period.
