Tha Night Hawks - "In The Studio" - {Officail Video}


Tha Night Hawks are a HipHop collective coming out of Charlotte, NC. The group consists of Charles Herron, Vinny Knuckles & DJ Wizdom. This single is of their new joint which will be announced soon.  Make sure you keep an eye out for this trio, it looks like the cycle of great HipHop is coming back around.  No more "Bling, Bling", well at least for another 20 years.

JulesIsDope - "WuTung" (Live) - {Video}

JulesIsDope a few years back dropped a new brand and name.  Starting off by dropping his self-titled "JulesIsDope" mixtape.  We decided to post this dope live performance of his new joint "Wu-Tang", because there is not enough dope lyricist getting play nowadays.  So here you go a young new Emcee who doesn't use auto-tune.

Homeboy Sandman - "Enough" - {Official Video}

Homeboy Sandman is one of the dopest Emcees  in HipHop, this dude can spit over any beat imagined...period.  To me that shows versatility, you'll have to possess man confidence in your skills in order to spit with such precision and grace.  It's a shame more Emcees do not respect the Art of Rap anymore.

Devine Carama - "A Vintage Love Supreme" - {Live Performance Video}

 
Devine Carama released his concept project with producer DJ Well Blended entitled, "A Vintage Love Supreme".  Below is a performance clip for album standout "1980-2019".  After taking a year off from his HipHop career to attend to his nonprofit organizations, Devine is back focusing on changing the negativity that has plagued HipHop.

Emɐnuǝl X - "The Mind Is A Weapon" - {Official Video}

I've always been a fan of Emɐnuǝl X the message in his lyrics always hits home with me.  He's been compared to the likes of Immortal Technique and Kendrick Lamar has made his journey for recognition in HipHop, not an easy one.  He's one of the few underground artist who never compromises his artistry for money.  That's why he will always have an outlet here @UnsungHipHop. Check out one of his classic singles below and tell us what you think.

"N*ggas with knowledge are more dangerous than n*ggas with guns. "They" make the guns easy to get and try to keep n*ggas dumb...." - Talib Kweli

Sean Price & Illa Ghee - "Good Lobster" (Ft. Royal Flush) - {Animated Video}

I swear it seems like Sean Price has material for days locked away somewhere in a vault.  Well, at least I hope it's that way especially for his wife and kids that were left behind.  His passing personally made me really think about exercise and diet.  

It's a shame it took the death of one of the greatest Emcees to ever hold the Mic for me to really get serious about my diet.  Shoutout too Styles P for going vegan, opening a juice bar, and teaching inner-city youths & adults the proper way to live healthily.  That being said I digress, if you are a fan all of his music on iTunes  please go support, his family still needs to eat. Peace !

R.A. the Rugged Man - "Sam Peckinpah" (Ft. Vinnie Paz & Sadat X) - {Official Video}

We decided to feature the guy I thought would publicly snatch the Mic from Slim Shady.  Shoutout to MGK for doing an excellent clap-back to Eminem's rant.  If you don't know R.A. the Rugged Man threw shots at Em many years ago while his popularity was just on the rise.  In the mainstream it pretty much went unnoticed but underground HipHop enthusiasts knew what was up. 

 Not to take away from Eminem but R.A. the Rugged Man was set to breakout before anyone knew who Eminem was, this caused a major setback in R.A.'s career.  For some reason (just like female rappers) "they" seem to think we can only have one white rapper at a time.  Nevertheless R.A. the Rugged Man found success and a home in the underground market thanks to the internet.  This is just one of his master pieces featuring two of the dopest Emcees in our era Vinnie Paz and the legend Sadat X.

Your Old Droog - "Help" (Ft. Wiki and Edan) - {Official Video}

Your Old Droog is another dope New York Emcee who's career thus far has been under the radar.  He got his first claim to fame when his self-titled debut EP was thought to be recorded by none other than Nas.  For a minute he let the rumor marinate before revealing himself as the rapper with the Nas-like flow.  

Today he's consistently building his career the old fashion way through his powerful lyrics and metaphors not some kind of gimmick like most young new rappers tend to gravitate towards.  It's because of this why we choose to feature him once again today, enjoy!

Nomadic Massive - "SupaFam" - {Official Video}

This is one of my favorite international HipHop groups, there is so much talent in this conglomerate.  They are a mix of De La Soul, Black Eyed Peas, Floetry, and R.A. The Rugged Man.  Imagine all of your favorite artists joining forces forming one Mega group, yup they are that dope!!  Send us your favorite HipHop group with over 3 members except for Wu-Tang Clan

Ronnie Brown - "Something For The Train" (Ft. Erica Kane) - {Video}

So we are back after much-needed vacation, we were in Barbados where I have to admit was beautiful but the internet not so much.  So today we are featuring a couple of underground artists Ronnie Brown (rapper) & Erica Kane (songstress) with their classic collaboration. 

 We are trying to feature more underground artists but most of the time they are using autotune(which we don't support) or basically are not talented enough for our website.  We may not be the most popular site but we still have standards, so check them out below and tell us what do you think.  Peace !

AWKWORD - "I AM" (Ft. Modenine, Five Steez, Holstar, Third Eye, Wakazi, The Assembly & Maka) - {Official Video}

Aerosoul Limited dropped visuals for "I Am" Global Collab, which was literary shot in 8 different countries.  Connecting HipHop in a way I've never seen before, from Africa to Diaspora!  There was a lot of effort put into this project by AWKWORD.  We need more mainstream artist willing to do this kind of movement with their combined effort we can rescue HipHop from depths of illiteracy and mediocrity. 

Thursday, August 30, 2018

De La Soul - "Whoodeeni" (Ft. 2 Chains) - {Official Video}

One of my favorite Golden Era groups just dropped visuals to their single "Whoodeeni" and its pretty dope.  De La Soul was one of the first original sounding and looking groups during that time.  I've been a fan since day 1, it's a shame none of their classic music is on iTunes.  I feel Tommy Boy Records is doing something shady NOT allowing profit off their catalog.  I will look more into this issue but in the meantime check out the dope visuals below.

Talib Kweli & Styles P. - "Nine Point Five" )Ft. Sheek Louch, Jadakiss, NIKO IS) - {Official Video}


Besides the Wu-Tang Clan there very little music in HipHop featuring a bunch of dope Emcees.  Today we feature a powerhouse of lyrical beast from the underground. You don't see it like this anymore, the creation of The Album has lost its value it seems a hot single is all you need to become famous.  The legends I rock with still create bodies of work (album) and this right here is just testament to that.  

Saturday, August 25, 2018

Sean Price - "Apartheid" (Ft. Buckshot & Steele of Smif N Wessun) - {Official Music Video}

They say after an artist has passed away their music lives on forever.  I feel this notion at times but I'm sure Sean Price's family misses him still.  I'm not sure if he has a catalog like Prince or Michael Jackson that hasn't been released to the public but it would be nice if he did.  We need more REal voices in HipHop, ones that don't care about being "politically correct".  Needless to say, these type of artist are a dying breed in our culture, we will continue to promote Sean P's body of work in our fight to keep authentic Rap music alive.

Wu-Tang Clan - "Protect Ya Neck" - {Cartoon MashUp}

Ok I know I'm late on this one but I gotta give it to Adam over @ hiddentracktv.com he did his thing on this joint. In my hay-day, I used to do something similar to what he does except I created my own cartoons. Only a few people who are familiar with editing will really appreciate the time and patience it takes to do something like this. I'm sure The Rza would have preferred him to use Anime instead, me too but it's still dope.

ILLClinton - "ILLfluential" - {Official Video}

Atlanta HipHop is now the new Mecca of HipHop and these underground phenoms are just a couple out of the few holding down REal HipHop. The exceptional new duo ILLClinton consists of two brothers from the Northside: Blake Belair (the producer) and Brennan P (the artist/producer).  ILL brings you an inside look to the recording of "ILLfluential" off of their classic mixtape, ILLANTA.  

Saturday, August 11, 2018

Homeboy Sandman - "Mine All Mine" - {Official Video}

One of my favorite underground artists, Homeboy Sandman goes out of his way to make sure all of his music sound different from the last.  Now that's what you call a true artist to the core.  This is one of his earlier songs that didn't get much mainstream action but it's still dope.  Lyrically Homeboy Sandman would eat most Emcees alive and still not be full.

International Maverick - "Cubs Fitted" - {Official Video}

International Maverick(Emcee/producer) is back again with visual after releasing #4PMInChicago which was received.   Well, he returns this time with self-produced gem entitled ''Cubs fitted'' shot by Work Nowitzki and fellow Chicago Emcee none other than Philmore Greene.

Madd Skillz - "In A Minute" - {Official Video}

I love when legendary HipHop artist reinvents themselves but still staying true to their core fans.  Madd Skillz is another famous ghostwriter in the game who probably would have had a lot more billboard hits if he didn't sell them.  But hey like I've said before HipHop is a fickled beast sometimes your words are meant for someone else to say.  I didn't think I would like this but he made me smile and reminisce about my youth.

Thursday, August 2, 2018

Busta Rhymes - "Girlfriend" (Ft. Vybz Kartel & Tory Lanez) - {Official Video}

I bring Y'all today another underrated legend in HipHop, lyrically one of the most talented.  Busta Rhymes has been consistent most of his career with mega-hits and memorable features.  In fact, most of the material I love don't even have any visuals to back them up.  I wish I knew who was in charge of this dept because I feel they dropped the ball of a slew of album bangers.  That being said I love when Busta shows his versatility adapting to any genre of music.

Bas - "Live For" - {Official Video}

Bas is one of those artists that have superstar talents but hovers just below the mainstream success.  If he remains consistent eventually his barsmanship will be appreciated on a larger scale.  Bas one of my favorite artists because his bars makes you re-listen over and over just to get a full understanding.  

Bas doesn't act a fool in order to get likes or increase sales he allows his music to speak for itself.  Artist of his caliber will last the test of time, just think Black Thought (lead vocalist for The Roots) has been in the game for a while.  But it wasn't until recent years the masses were able to appreciate he can do on the Mic as a stand-alone artist.

CyHi The Prynce - "Legend" - {Official Video}

Now I know most rappers brag and boast about being the greatest and using exaggerated lyrics to big themselves up but, CyHi The Prynce doesn't have to lie about his legacy.  Unlike Jay-Z who has a personal catalog, most rappers would kill for.  CyHi's is known for writing dope content for numerous famous Emcees who mostly will remain nameless.  

But just to give you an idea of the caliber of stars he writes for, Kanye is one of those elites who utilize the talents of Prynce.  It would be nice if he kept them for himself but the business of HipHop isn't that simple.  He's probably one of the few underground millionaires in HipHop, which is cool because these days it's best to be lowkey with your wealth.

Sean Price - "Peep My Words & Monkey Barz" - {Official Video}

Just couple tracks down memory lane to remind the youngsters what REal HipHop sound like.  Sean Price, another HipHop legend gone before his time will always be in my top five dopest lyricist.  From all the fallen soldiers in HipHop Sean P. is by far the one that hits close to my heart.  This could have been my brethren in life and in business I will see you in the afterlife bro peace.

The Roots - Tiny Desk Concert - (Ft. Bilal) - {Video}

When these mega artist grace the stage you are definitely in for a show of a lifetime.  The Roots is HipHop grown up, they bring the Jazz and the Poetry into one arena with style and class.  Bilal is pretty much our underground version of Prince, his voice makes any song legendary and he can perform any genre of music.  This matchup was bound to happen when the earth and stars are aligned with one another.  That being said check out the video below if you are a REal fan of HipHop/Soul music.

Madvillain - "All CAPS" - {Official Video}

Hands down MF Doom aka Madvillain is definitely one of my top 5 Emcees of all time.  It's a shame it took a tragedy to create the persona we see today but as a fan that's one hell of a comeback.  From being an okay rapper to one of the dopest underground Emcees is one hell of a "Rags to Riches" story.  I wished he would have created more videos for his dope azz classics.  But thanks to his massive following we have at least a few visuals to gaze upon.

ONYX & Wu-Tang Clan - "The Worst" - {Official Video}

I just had to show some love to two of the most iconic HipHop groups that basically ruled the 90's.  Once upon a time, HipHop artists were allowed to be Alpha men on mainstream media those days are gone.  ONYX was a force to be reckoned with along with Wu-Tang Clan.  

These days you notice there are hardly any more HipHop groups especially ones that display masculinity on camera in the mainstream.  I'm not against people being whomever they want to be I'm just saying black men being soft or feminine is being forced into our veins like crack.  I'm sure the men who can relate will understand, in the meantime, let us take a look back when HipHop was great!!

9th Wonder & Buckshot - "Shorty Left" (Ft. Rapsody) - {Official Video}


Watching this three together on one track takes me back to the Golden Era of HipHop.  Only the REal HipHop Heads will be able to appreciate this collaboration by 9th Wonder, Buckshot, and Rapsody on this "Shorty Left" joint off "The Solution" LP.  
Directed by Kenneth Price
I wish I could have been at New York Tri-State concert with 9th Wonder & Buckshot, Murs and my guy Sean Price.

The Roots And Jimmy Fallon Perform "We Can't Stop" (Acapella) - {Video}

Jimmy Fallon, Miley Cyrus, and The Roots perform an a Capella version of "We Can't Stop."  I know I'm late with this post so it's a good thing time is not an ending factor for our site.  HipHop is probably the most influential genre of music ever created by man.  Artist from every genre of music borrows and are influence by HipHop in one way or another this is just proof how versatile HipHop truly is.

A Tribe Called Quest - "The Space Program" - {Official Video}

Believe it or not, it's been 2 years since Phife Dawg has transcended.  And ever since the ora of the group has not been the same.  This hurts me to the core because I grew up on A Tribe Called Quest.  They along with De La Soul were the only groups speaking for Nerd/Thugs like myself who didn't quite fit into the status quo.  Sad to see this chapter end as a group but I'm sure individually they will still strive.  And oh yeah this song is dope R.I.Power Phife.

Isaiah Rashad - "Ronnie Drake" (Ft. SZA) - {Official Video}

Top Dog Entertainment’s Isaiah Rashad and SZA join forces for “Ronnie Drake”.   A few years back, the Chattanooga, Tennessee native dropped the audio for infectiously smooth “Ronnie Drake” featuring the New Jersey raised singing sensation and we get the visual accompaniment to The Antydote produced track.  Even though he's not one of the most popular TE artists next to Kendrick Lamar he is my favorite.  His style is so gritty and raw reminds me of a young O.D.B.

Fountain Of Youth (Chin x Peezy) - "The Follow-Up" - {Official Video}

Fountain of Youth is Boston based HipHop group composed of Jeffrey iLL, Phacade, Peezy, and Chin. They have gained a following with their singles "HipHop Ambien" (34K views) and Chin x Peezy's "The Follow Up" (17K views). One of their classic releases "The Follow-Up" is still a fan favorite.

Set in the back allies and hoods, 'The Follow-Up' provides a different perspective into the realm of Fountain of Youth. Wordplay, along with dope rhymes and cinematic videography provide the tone needed to remind rappers abroad to feel their presence and respect their craft.

Saturday, June 30, 2018

Leeb Burton - "Camp Reality" - {Official Video}

Leeb Burton dropped a single "Camp Reality" off his debut mixtape, Reality's Revenge a few years ago.  I just had to show some love to Leeb for this dope tribute to Camp Lo instrumental beat Uptown Saturday Night.  And I'm trying to show more fun tracks like this so sit back for some old Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince more groups like that, especially for the weekends.

Thursday, June 28, 2018

The Soul Pros - "Peace In The Mile High" - {Official Video}


The Soul Pros classic release off their first EP called $OUL'D OUT.  The Soul Pros is a true school HipHop collective made up of Pavlo Kee, Mike Wird, and DJ A-L.  Check'em out, it's on some smoothed out ill s#@!, really dope stuff.   This group sounds like they are a part of the Native Tongue movement.  And if you don't know what that is then you really are not a fan of REal  HipHop.     

Tuesday, June 26, 2018

AZ - "Save Them" (Ft. Raekwon + Prodigy) - {Official Video}

First off R.I.P. to my mans Prodigy he is definitely missed as one of the top lyricists in the game.  As usual Raekwon always brings the heat to whatever track he lace.  Last but not least AZ, I'm glad he decided to pick up the pen again after a long hiatus.  It's obvious REal Emcees get better with time I can't think of any of these new lames being able to compete with the Gods.

Monday, June 25, 2018

Phonte - "So Help Me God" - {Official Video}

Today we bring y'all another example of a successful HipHop artist who is also independent.  For those who don't know Phonte was 1/3 of the mega underground phenom group Little Brother.  The other two members Fat Boy Fresh and 9th Wonder went on to have successful solo careers after they broke up as well.  

9th Wonder (the Beat Master) went on to produce damn near the entire underground roster and starting an independent record label. Fat Boy Fresh still dropping LP's and touring around the world with his music.  Fans (myself included) are still hoping for a Little Brother reunion though.

Saturday, June 23, 2018

Jedi Mind Tricks - "Marciano's Reign" (Ft. Scott Stallone) - {Official Video}

HipHop underground legends Jedi Mind Tricks has been dropping classics for over 20 years without a major record deal.  They are living proof that you can create rap music without selling your soul for butter biscuits.  The integrity of this group is unheard of on the mainstream side of HipHop, most rappers will buck dance and give up their first born for a corporate paycheck.

Friday, June 22, 2018

J. Cole - "Kevin's Heart" - {Official Video}

I'm sure most men have been in a similar situation, but I couldn't even imagine my infidelities playing out in the public like that.  This seems to be a common problem with most men worldwide no matter race, religion or culture.  Has anyone ever ask, "Why most men have to be taught to be faithful?"  Either way, Kevin Heart proved he has huge King Kong balls for even shooting this video, but like Jay Z if she is worth it, you'll do anything to save your marriage.

Wednesday, June 20, 2018

Pharoahe Monch - "Still Standing" - (Ft. Jill Scott) - {Official Video}

If you asked me you can't mention Underground HipHop Legend without mentioning Pharoahe Monch.  He is a true veteran in the game of independent artist who is making a living in HipHop without a major record deal.  A smart artist knows there is power and profit in owning your own masters and writing your own material.  While most of your favorite "rap stars" are only flash in the pan rappers, an artist like Pharoahe Monch lyrics will last the test of time.

Saturday, June 16, 2018

Sadat X - "This Is Our Thing"(Ft.Pharoahe Monch & Phil G) - {Official Video}

 On this classic collaboration, Sadat X joins forces with Pharoahe Monch and Phil G for the "This Is Our Thing" single from his Love, Hell or Right LP.  I know Brand Nubian is back together and touring right now, but I would love for them to drop some new music.  Especially with all the fuckery going on in social media and politics.  There are plenty of folks out there that needs to be chin-checked.

JJ DOOM (MF DOOM/ Jneiro Jarel) - Guv'nor - {Official Video}


Originally one of the dopest groups alongside De La Soul and the Native Tongue crew, tragedy took away one KMD forcing the other member to go M.I.A. for several years.  After years of hibernation, MF DOOM arrived from depths and a legend was born. This time, he's spittin' over eerie HipHop instrumentals similar to the Jneiro Jarel collaboration.  MF DOOM's rap style is way before our time, you'll have to listen to his rhymes a few times in order to pick up on the many subliminal messages. Check out this classic single below it's one of my favorites. 

Thursday, June 14, 2018

Saigon - "Plant The Seed" - {Official Video}

Saigon is doing what he normally does pokin' fun at fake Emcees on his Plant The Seed (What U Paid For) single.  With a career over 10 years, this Brooklyn native has always treated the Mic with integrity.  His respect for the art of HipHop is a characteristic most rappers do not possess.  It's more than just a way to get paid it's a lifestyle. I feel we should bring back the Temple of HipHop a place where you need to qualify in order to participate. 

Wednesday, June 13, 2018

Rapper Big Pooh - "Friends" - {Official Video}

Rapper Big Pooh delivers on his classic single “Friends”, taken from his Fat Boy Fresh Vol 2 LP.  He muses, “they don’t love you, they know how to pretend, and these are the people that call themselves friends.” Producer Astronote provides a slow, expressive instrumental that adds emphasis to Pooh’s heartfelt words.  

Originally a member of Little Brother, alongside Phonte and 9th Wonder, back when HipHop was dope and originality a requirement, not an option.  Y'all feel me "The Golden Era", I"m hoping Little Brother will one day reunite.  Individually they are a force to be reckoned with but together they are like Wu-Tang Clan

Tuesday, June 12, 2018

Blimes - "Hot Damn" - (Ft. Method Man) - {Official Video}

Blimes is one of those young dope Emcees who be spittin' hot fire, Method Man is one of those OG legends who know how to stay relevant in the game without wearing blackface.  I love when veterans embrace new talent because skill factor not because of a paycheck.  I did my homework Blimes got bars, and with further investigation Method Man only makes an appearance with REal artist NOT auto-tone lollipop hair wearing clowns.  And if you are offended sorry this is not the website for you. 

Saturday, June 9, 2018

Jeff Bradshaw - "Got Til It's Gone" (Ft. Marsha Ambrosius & TWyse) - {Official Video}

It never ceases to amaze me how much HipHop meshes with all genre's of music.  In this Jeff Bradshaw classic, he shows one of the many examples.  It's the reason why HipHop is copied and imitated in all walks of life, music, art, and film.  This weekend we celebrate by featuring HipHop influenced music. 

Friday, June 8, 2018

R.A. the Rugged Man - "The Dangerous Three" (Ft. Brother Ali, Masta Ace) - {Official Video}

 Never have I witnessed a band of lyrical misfits come together in such a poetic way. R.A. the Rugged Man, Brother Ali, and Masta Ace are just three of the dopest Emcees in HipHop according to our sources.  Just another example how you don't need a "Record Deal" to be successful in HipHop.

Thursday, June 7, 2018

Killa Kyleon - "Killing Over Jays" - {Official Video}

Now I don't know about y'all but I love hardcore HipHop we need DMX to make a comeback.  But in the meantime, Killa Kyleon fills my hardcore rap cravings.  So when a hardcore artist starts rapping about conscious subjects, BooM, you can't go wrong.  I have my own reasons why I will NEVER own another pair of Jordans besides the obvious.  And if you are on welfare and you own a pair of these popular status symbols your priorities are off balance.

Bankai Fam - "Neva Run Away" - {Official Video}


If you are a fan of the Wu-Tang Clan, then Bankai Fam and their band of misfits right up your alley.  Their gritty, grimy, and belligerent style of lyrics takes me back to the Golden Era of HipHop.  You remember if anyone was caught NOT being original they would get a beatdown and ran up out of the industry?  Fast-forward 30 years to a time where being a non-talented copycat can when you a grammy.  Wow, no matter what they say all change is not good.  

Sunday, June 3, 2018

CyHi The Prynce - "Nu Africa" (Ft. Ernestine Johnson) - {Official Video}

Today we bring y'all another underrated Emcee, CyHi The Prynce who is well known if you are a fan of REal HipHop.  If not, it's not your fault the industry was designed to keep REal artist broke and dependent on a record deal.  Nevertheless, CyHi if you listen to all of his name droppin' references is a close acquaintance of Kanye West and the G.O.O.D. Music movement.  If it wasn't for the internet these behind the scenes Emcees wouldn't be able to eat.  So remember to purchase DO NOT stream your favorite artist music.

Saturday, June 2, 2018

Fred The Godson - "Talkin' Bout Money" - {Official Video}

Underground phenom Fred The Godson has been on his grind for some years now.  This is just one of the classics from his City Of God Mixtape which is still in heavy rotation in my whip.  He has a B.I.G. feel to his music with the hardcore lyrics over a Nas beat.  Just another hidden gem we keep in our vault of Dope Emcees
