You want to know where all the dope female artist are? Well don't look any farther, starting with the raptress Narubi Selah you'll find them all underground. See "they" rather have our females half naked and dancing instead of conscious minded. Narubi breaks all stereotypes of female Emcees. How many natural hair, knowledge of self, lyrical female rappers do you know? Exactly.....not enough.

With all of the genres of HipHop, it's ridiculous how the US only focus on one (Trap Auto-tune). Little Simz is definitely making her mark in HipHop with her razor sharp lyrics and charismatic personality she practically running the UK. As you can see she's not trying to imitate any of our mainstream artist like most international rappers do.

To all my BeatSmith's out there you definitely can appreciate the natural talents of Just Blaze. Being a former beatsmith myself I understand the timing and precision it takes to create professional sounding track. Making beats was just the beginning for me, I've moved on to animated cartoons and other forms of media platforms. Blaze makes it look so easy, it took me all day to do what he did in about 30 mins.

SA-ROC is one of those artist who is way before their time, the masses will not take note of her craft until well after she has transcended. We have featured her several times over the years and she never gets old always droppin' new enlightening material. This is the kind of artist that only comes around once in our life time.

There is no other genre of HipHop like hardcore that brings joy to my heart. Hardcore HipHop was once a league of extraordinary rappers, you really had to be a lyricist, rhyming about REal sh#@!! Nowadays anyone with a Twitter account and a beat machine consider themselves to be Emcee/Producer. I love when REal rappers flex on these auto-tune Clowns.

I was just thinking how there aren't many songs in HipHop talking about love and relationships. Then I thought of my man Devine Carama and his some "Something More" off his Believing In Forever LP. Now this a dose of REal HipHop, video directed by Lexington, KY's Unsung Hero Media and produced by Sir Flywalker.

It's always good to see The Gods collaborate showing these young bucks what REal lyrics sound like. Method Man, Raekwon, and Inspectah Deck are some of the most lyrical Emcees on the planet. Despite being a Wu-Tang fan for life I am a supporter of lyrics and great content. Something today's so-called HipHop lacks.

Thanks to Emcees like J. Cole, I'm now aware of Cozz, in a sport that's full of egos and bravado it's a rare accusation to see young rappers support each other. Be on the look out for more material from Cozz these are the kind of artist we will continue to support on UnsungHipHop.

One of the most underrated Emcees of all time this Chi-town native did his thing on"Kingdom" featuring Vince Staples off his album "Nobody Smiling". I know most of the world only value success by how many units you sell, but Common might not sell the most units but his conscious HipHop is the most relevant. Never giving into the same mainstream dogma, Common was able to build a successful career without selling out. He's the perfect example of a successful underground Emcee, humble and always giving back the the urban community.

While many artists such as the St.Lunatics (Nelly) , Chingy, J-Kwon, Huey were selling mainstream records pushing St.Louis to the next level, the real Underground Emcees with those REal bars like Will Victory are not getting notice beyond the city limits. So it's up to us make sure we support REal artist.

Fab Soares is a Underground HipHop artist from London, what makes him different from most UK Emcees is his unique lyrical form. Formally a member of the Collective company Fab decided he needed some room to stretch out his lyrical muscles by starting his own brand called London's Most Blunted. The track below is just a peek into what we can expect from Fab in the future. Check him out below.

Where melodies meet poetry and the fine line where art and expression are combined for a bigger picture is what can best describe Jeary Sylves. A soulful and poetic Phoenix based artist, Jeary is the type of musician HipHop needs more of. Today Jeary song, "Think You Do" is off his EP "Abstract Expressionism".

Produced by VA's own Click N Spark with additional production and mastering by VibeHaus collective producers, DrewsThatDude &iRockSays, Scolla goes in on "Foxy Brown" his take of Blaxploitation soundtrack music.
"I always had a love for Pam Grier and her Foxy Brown role. The movie happened to be on one day while I was in the studio and I figured creating an ode to women alike would be only right." - Scolla

Tito Lopez’s first words tell the story. When he was less than a year old, the Gulfport, Mississippi native was sitting in his high chair and said, “Wild, wild, west,” the chorus of a popular Kool Moe Dee song at the time.
Flabbergasted, his mother declared that one day her son would be a rapper.
Flabbergasted, his mother declared that one day her son would be a rapper.
Fast forward to 2016 and Lopez’s mother’s words have proven prophetic. Tito is one of those artist that come around not too often a truly talented artist, checkout his "Pound Cake" freestyle below.

Inspired by the film, Gone Wallace's "Love Jones" discusses the uncertainty involved in budding relationships. With the help of the M.Fasol produced soundscape from the endangered Neo-Soul genre, Gone flexes his lyrical prowess on the closest thing to a ballad that he's made in a long time. Gone Wallace has an old school style mixed with a future sound.

Shem Bey brings a fresh and inspiring sound with his new track "Earth Wind Fire." His flow is relentless as a AK-47 but instead of rhyming Bentleys' and Bi#@!s' he's actually droppin' some knowledge. In a world where most people are concerned about the opinions of others, it's refreshing to listen to joints like this.

It seems like yesterday when Floetry the dynamic duo graced our presents back in 2001. Like most groups they've had there ups and downs. They both released solo projects which kept there names buzzing in the streets. I must admit The Floacist was always my favoirite, I'm glad to see her doing well.
What makes this video so bitter-sweet for me is that she looks great and the music is on point but that's my homeboy from Baltimore in the video with her (he's also a Emcee) playing as her man. I was floored in laughter when I saw this, no real hate but a bit of jealousy...lol. I'm cool he's been one of the dopest Emcees out of B-more for about 15 years now. He has toured the world doing his thing, big-ups to my man Komplex @MrKeepOnMoving, peace.

It was music like this that made me create this site. Don't get me wrong all forms of music deserves a platform to be showcased. If you like this sort of HipHop, cool but don't shelve the HipHop I love to over saturate the market with this sort of garbage. Oops didn't mean to call it that, (now back to my message) this is one of the reasons Hopsin has been blackballed in the industry. He's been stepping on rappers toe since day one, my kind of Emcee.

I can not say this enough R.I.P. Sean Price, your music will live forever. Even though I know you didn't like the fame or the games that come with HipHop, I wish your name was a household name like Michael's (anyone, pick one). Your natural skills on the Mic are so gritty you were the Rasheed Wallace of HipHop. Oh yeah thanks to those other dudes too, DJ J Hart and Rim P. peace.

Glad to see Action Bronson still on his grind, after his beef with Ghostface Killah I was a little concerned for both parties. Yeah he sound similar to Ghost but his style is not like his. No one can imitate The God if you ask me. But back to HipHop, I love it when the underground Emcees are able to have a successful career without any airplay or major corporations.

It's been a minute since we've featured anything from Childish Gambino. I wasn't really sure if was down with what he brought to HipHop. I mean he's another rapper that sings and raps, which is a dime a dozen nowadays with no talent. Hey, be patient I'm learning to accept the fact that there is a small group of humans are actually multi-talented. Gambino is a threat in all forms of entertainment, he's a rapper, stand-up comedian, actor, producer, director, and DJ just to name a few jobs he gets paid for.

What more can I say about this Baltimore native and underground sensation? Joy Postell is a true representation of Baltimore HipHop, not that BS that got some airplay a few years back. Well let me be fair, Baltimore has many different genre's of HipHop but only the "BooBoo" seems to get any recognition. As a B-more native myself and former producer of the Baltimore underground group The Zen Collective, I'm speaking from experience. Make sure y'all support this sista and help keep REal HipHop alive.

One of my mentors in life Born Allah, breaks down the meaning of being a Five Percenter. You may know a couple famous Gods & Earths like Rakim, Busta Rhymes and Erykah Badu just to name a few. This is not a religion it's about learning Allah's teachings Supreme Mathematics, Supreme Alphabets and 120 lessons. And it's only then you would be considered a Righteous Teacher able to build a true connection with The Most High.
