YC The Cynic - "God Complex" - {Official Video}

The Bronx is known for originating this thing that we call HipHop. It's only right for a kid from hip-hop's birthplace to introduce a unique flavor to the game.

YC The Cynic is a rapper who has cut his teeth in New York City's open mic scene for years. Cultivating a small but fiercely loyal fan base, YC was able to raise over $5000 for a Kickstarter campaign to fund his upcoming album with producer Frank DrakeGNK

Mélan - "thrifty(so)ul" EP - {Video Snips}

Today we bring you Bronx native Emcee Mélan, who sounds like she could be related to Yassin Bey (Mos Def).  Her versatility on the mic seems unlimited, this kind of talent you can't teach.  With her latest project she takes us back when HipHop was based on lyrics and forward moving consciousness.  Make sure you check her out, I'm sure she will S#@! on your favorite female rapper, hell probably most males to.

Isaiah Rashad - "I Shot You Down" - {Official Video}

If you ask me TDE is the new Def Jam, their roster is so deep it's ridiculous.  They appear to have all genres of HipHop covered under one umbrella.  Now when was the last time that happened?

Blossom - "Black Magic Woman" - {Official Video}

Portland songstress Blossom brings all the vibes in her latest, self-directed, music video for "Black Magic Woman," produced by Mikey Fountaine.  It's great to see REal soul music is making a comeback.  There is nothing like an artist willing to lay it all out on the line in order to spread their message. Blossom is the perfect representation of what it means to be original.

Common - "Black America Again" (Ft. Stevie Wonder) - {Video}

Common has always been one of my top 10 Emcees of all time.  This Chicago native for the most part has always kept it street and conscious.  No matter how much mainstream success he has gotten in the last few years he has remained grounded and being the voice of the people.  Common's latest single is another masterpiece to added to his arsenal of dope rhymes.

Talib Kweli Have Some Words For Kanye West - {Video}

We keep in purely HipHop  here for the most part, but there are times when you must speak out against the tyranny.  I agree with Jazy-Z, I miss the "Old" Kanye.  It's obviously Kanye has something personal going on in his life and I hope it gets it resolved soon.  Talib Kweli breaks down the dangers of Kanye giving Donald Trump any recognition.

Raekwon - “Don’t Look Any Further” (FREESTYLE) - {Audio}

 The last time I heard Raekwon he was killing it on Pusha T‘s “Tick Tock” from The Man With The Iron Fists soundtrack, a project which left mouths watering for some kind of Wu-Tang reunion. Whilst that prospect remains up in the air, The Chef himself is preparing for the release of a solo EP this year.
For now though, here’s a three and a half minute freestyle he dropped over Dennis Edwards‘ Motown classic “Don’t Look Any Further,” which recalls the glory days of East Coast rap whilst clenching lyrical fists at the new generation of skinny-jeaned rappers.

Ivan Ives - "Higher" (Ft. Aaron Marsh) - {Official Video}

Russian born/bred L.A. resident Ivan Ives presents the self-directed music video for "Higher", the Aaron Marsh-produced new single from his new album Stranger. Ivan Ives originally stepped into the hip hop world in 2007. Rolling Stone named him among the next 40 artists to watch; SPIN called him one of 8 top unsigned artists; and XXL said "don't let his indie rocker persona fool you - this guy can spit." 
He's worked with the likes of Cappadonna (Wu-Tang), Tre Hardson (Pharcyde), Percee P & Oh No (Stones Throw), The Cool Kids, Black Milk, O.C. (DITC), Vast Aire (Def Jux), Ceschi (Fake Four Inc), and many more. Having gone to film school, he directs most of his own videos which have racked up over a million streams on YouTube without major distribution. "Aaron and I wrote the song at his studio in Lakeland, Florida," says Ivan. "It's a pretty weird song with alternating off-kilter time signatures, so it was really fun to work on. I wanted the video to reflect the uniqueness of the song, and so we tell a disjointed story about an astronaut lost in space or his own mind." Click here to view the music video for "8mm" produced by RJD2.

Emɐnuǝl X - "Streams" - {Official Video}

Emɐnuǝl X took a very unique approach when writing his song "Streams".  It tells that tale of two different stories based on where you choose to start playing it from. On one end he tries to be a good man to her, and vice versa, but they both know their relationship is weak because it was founded off of lust and no true substance. It's a rare thing to see a rapper right something REal these days, check him out below.

Uncle Murda - "Cam'ron Voice" - {Official Video}

I know my fellow conscious community would call this "Murder Music", but I happen to love it. All music isn't meant for everyone I grew up on all forms of rap, Gangsta Rap was one and it didn't make me want to become a criminal.  Now back to Uncle Murda, he's one the dopest Hardcore Emcees out now.  With a sea full of feminine cross dressing rappers in the game, it's always good to see some REal Emceein'

Martial WAL Presents: Hop Cashay - "Redemption" - (Official Video)

You know here @ UnsungHipHop we highly support the conscious rappers.  But I can never deny those REal Emcees who spit that street s#%!. I mean those Beanie Sigel/Jadakiss type, Hop Cashay is just that kind of rapper.  We support all genre's of HipHop just as long as it's not whack.

Airøspace - "Analogues" [Tape: Side A] - {Audio}

This artist name Airøspace was recently brought to my attention and I must say his style is like chaotic genius on wax.  He takes us on a dark journey within his own heartache, pain, and anger.    
Dope a$$ f$#k!, which pretty much sums up this EP, to me he's like Marshall Mathers mixed with Tech N9ne.  The production on this track is top notch to there is nothing like this on mainstream radio.  Make sure ya'll check him out.

J Cole - "False Prophets [Be Like This]" - {Official Video}

What can I say about J Cole that you don't know already?  Well I've watched him grow from a normal rapper touring with Black Star and De La Soul.  To a conscious Lyricist trying to change the world with his music.  

J Cole has been groomed by the best in the game from Mos Def (Yassin Bey), Talib Kweli, Nas, and even Jay-Z just to name a few.  He has personally experienced HipHop's underground and mainstream audiences building up his fan base the old fashion way.  In my opinion he is one of the few most rounded Emcees in the game.

Isaiah Rashad - "4r Da Squaw" - {Official Video}

Coming out of the T.D.E. squad Isaiah Rashad has been playing his dues for quite some time now.  I've been waiting on this solo project for a minute now.  Kendrick and the game surely have great team around their artist.  Everyone they sign appear to be on that conscious tip which is a dope attribute to have, they have the infrastructure to last the test of time.

Nomadic Massive - "Any Sound" - {Official Video}

Nomadic Massive is probably the most talented group of it's size since the Wu-Tang Clan.  Anyone of these artist could easily record a solo project.  You don't see groups this large anymore, in the US groups are not promoted it's all about the solo artist.  Nothing wrong with doing your own thing, but as a group we are stronger and more people can eat and have opportunities.  Remember "It takes a villiage..." you know the rest.
