You can hear just hear his pain on "Words Paint Pictures", Big Pooh’s debut release for Mello Music Group. The North Carolina native captures the complex agonies of the human condition, specifically the black experience in America over the last several centuries. These are tales of racial profiling and corrupt politicians, reality TV distractions, thieving preachers and rapacious exploitation. Big Pooh as always been a no nonsense type of Emcee even back during his Little Brother days. REal HipHop heads are glad to see him back and doing what he was destine to do, make sure y'all go support real music.

Here is one for #TBT, MF DOOM, who is probably the illest, dopest, and most incognito Emcee you've Ever heard of join forces with Madlib. DOOM is like the ghost of Tupac, you never see him Anywhere but he's always releasing that new raw HipHop S#%@!. This happens to be one of my favorite tracks back when folks were reporting DOOM sitings like Bigfoot. This is HipHop in rare form.

Sacramento's own Anthony Marshall aka Velly Marsh is a underground Emcee/Producer and a graduate of American River College with a degree in Audio Recording. Alex Salveson also a Sacramento native and a young lyrical prodigy, judging by his bars alone you would never guess he is 15 yrs old.
Their passion for HipHop brought them together and then"The Internship"LP was born. You will quickly notice that they are NOT trying to imitate any mainstream artist simply rhyming about things they know. And y'all already know for young artist today that is a rare practice, building careers with integrity and style is a lost art form. Checkout Velly and Alex album below and tell us what you think.

yU (from The Diamond District) hooks up with super producer “Nottz”, for his latest track "Homicide" off the upcoming Mello Music Group “Persona” compilation. From the sound of this joint I'm confident that this project is going to be another dope classic by yU. No one quite tells a story like yU does, not to mention he spittin' over a NottzPersona" LP here MMG’s Bandcamp.

I must admit I've never heard of Niko Is until Talib Kweli signed him, so I was excited to see what the kid can do. Well the verdict is in and he wouldn't be featured on UnsungHipHop if we didn't think he was dope artist, not to mention his freestyle off the charts. How many Emcees you know can freestyle in 3 different languages......exactly very short list. Well don't listen to me scroll down and checkout a video he did spitting to a Yasiin Bey (formerly known as Mos Def) beat.

Keiph Ali "Soul Mate" focuses on relationships. He's speaking from the male & female perspective, giving insight into the troubles that haunt a marriage/relationship. The male comes off as the antagonist of the story, while the female comes off as hopeless and fed up. Give it a listen and tell us what you think. I thought this was a interesting topic considering the fact most people (Not Me) celebrate Valentine's Day.

One thing I can say about Joey Bada$$, he is proof that every 20 years we get some really dope Emcees. This is evidence that true artist are born not manufactured, 1999 was the year Mos Def released his solo album ironically it was the same title as Joey's mixtape. If you don't know anything about Joey Bada$$ it's probably because you still listen to that garbage on the radio "they" call HipHop. Do yourself and REal HipHip a favor and turn that S#@! off. Between Black Hippy in the West and Pro Era in the East, Real HipHop is about to take over the mainstream.

Fresh off the heels of his celebrated 10 Summers mixtape, Pittsburgh's Mario Dones releases the first single from his debut album, Black Watermelon.
"For me, with the type of music I do, 'The Remedy' is just the right song to introduce people to my sound and myself as an artist. I like making different types of records, but this is at the core of what I do. And I think the timing is right. With everything else going on in hip-hop right now, this is the type of vibe I'm on." - Mario Dones

Young Gully hails from the streets of East Oakland, CA and has made 11 mixtapes and one official album by the age of 26. In 2010 he released The Grant Station Project in response to the killing of Oscar Grant and donated all the proceeds to Grant’s family. In 2011 he earned a spot in the Bay Area Freshman 10, which consists of the best up-and-comers before they blow up.
It’s difficult to categorize Young Gully’s music as anything but “in-betweener,” in the sense that he does a little bit of everything and doesn’t limit himself to one particular area. He seamlessly moves through styles such as gangster, party, political, and conscious raps, while having even more under the surface. Young Gully’s Hustla’ Movement Vol. 5 (HM5) offers a glimpse of the emotional struggle he endures as a hustler on the streets of East Oakland, CA. He does this without glorifying any particular aspect of the lifestyle as well as with an unbreakable determination to better himself and make it out of the ‘hood. There is no other HipHop like conscience HipHop Gully is apart of the small elite group of Emcees who choose to keep Real HipHop alive. Check him out below and tell us what you think. Someone use to say we only feature East coast rappers...WRONG. We only feature lyricist and REal artist on here.

If you don't know by now The Out of Water eXperience (OWX) are a force to be reckoned with. Each album they release pushes HipHop to stratosphere most groups are afraid to travel. Being inspired by J Cole's "Be Free" performance on the David Letterman Show they decided to release their own version paying homage to J.Cole. OWX consist of some of the most talented artist in the world, Femi The Drifish, Chuck "Da Madd-Ox", Mo Rece, AJ Taylor, Kevin "Yeah" Jr. Powe, Spyda Drummer, and Tony DragonWizard Johnson. There hasn't been a group this gifted with over 3 members since the Wu-Tang Clan. If you haven't heard the OWX before sit back and enjoy the ride, this is what REal HipHop is made of.
