Hands down I don't think I've heard of a doper duo between artist and beatmaker since Eric B & Rakim. I'm talkin' about that gritty hardcore HipHop not the pop music in HipHop clothing. Apollo Brown & Planet Asia while well respected in the underground world they don't get the credit they deserve. It's a good thing our site doesn't have any major sponsors because we will always promote REal artist no matter how "controversial" they are.

Real talk every time I think of an artist gone too soon my first thought is Sean Price and then O.D.B. not to mention the other half of Mobb Deep. Sean is definitely on my top 5 list if I was to create one. We need to show appreciation for our Heroes while they are alive, it's a sad tradition we have only celebrating people after they have crossed over.
Nevertheless, his music will last 2 lifetimes, yes he has that much music already recorded. Make sure you support if you are a real fan, his family still eats off his music. So purchase, don't stream, it's not the same profit margin ask any artist on any of those platforms.

Dreamville signed artist Bas might not have the commercial success of its founder (J. Cole) but he is blazin' in these underground streets. A perfect example of how most artists don't get the same push as the "Trap Music" artist.
I feel those folks behind the curtain only want to promote the dumbest genre of HipHop. Those artists get the accolades and the richest while the REal artist have to work 10 times as hard to make 1/4 of the money. The moral of the story is support REal HipHop, that means purchase your music don't scream it.

I just finished reading U-God's book "RAW", and it was awesome. The book answered a lot of my questions while leaving a few unmentioned. I was hoping this book would energize U-God's career and he would finally get the recognition he deserves.
I love his latest project but I wish Wu-Tang would get their business and personal issues in order so we can get some new Wu classics and not that lackluster fluff released lately. It's bad enough we lost ODB, but we still have 9 other members left, put those egos aside and make it happen HipHop really needs Y'all.

Now I would be lying if I told Y'all I've been following Krondon's career since the beginning. Let's just say I had to do some homework after seeing his interview on Sway In The Morning. Then I was like damyum.....how did I miss this, nevertheless better late than never. Needless to say, if we are featuring him today it means he must have some serious Bars no doubt. Check out one of his classic joints below and tell me what y'all think.

If you ask me you can't get any more underground than CzarFace and MF Doom. So I knew this LP was going to be legendary in the arena of HipHop. While some rappers choose to pay homage to Prince & The Revolution in style and dress. I'm rolling with the Emcees who shoes still lean to the side and has razor-sharp lyrics.

In this day and age, you don't see many artists brave enough to be themselves (except for Kanye). Maximum Capacity is not one of those groups, while everyone is chasing the delusion of being original, M.C. achieves this by simply being themselves. Not since The Fat Boys, have I heard a group of big men who can rap, I love it. These guys are a perfect example when skill meets underground HipHop.

One of my favorite groups from the south, EarthGang, if you ask me, has been keeping up that traditional HipHop. You know the one that involves lyrics and storytelling, yeah that one. These Atlanta natives remind me of OutKast on so many levels, and they have been on their grind since 2009. EarthGang has an unbelievable catalog, meaning you can't believe they are NOT bigger than most of these clowns on airwaves. But enough of my ranting make sure you support REal HipHop starting with this video below.

ROCK (Heltah Skeltah) his emerged back from him glory days since the passing of his other half Sean Price. Sometimes when dealing with writers' block tragedy can spark new life into all of us. Seeing ROCK without Sean brings sadness to my heart he was truly a Legend and I feel he had much more work to do. ROCK's latest LP is basically a tribute to Sean's life and a resurrection for ROCK who has been out of the limelight for a while. It feels good to hear his classic baritone voice back on the mic again spittin' that REal HipHop.

During a time where being a celebrity is valued over being a person of worth and integrity. Jedi Mind Tricks have passed the test of time with numerous lyrical content that will be relevant 100 years from now. It's a disgrace that most of humanity rarely act as such (human), that's why its' important our music consists of messages that are made to heal not to break down. Unless its the system which has been holding people back globally for quite some time now.

Childish Gambino has just pulled off one of the most profound videos in HipHop history. Truth be told most people won't even get the real message behind the dozens of imagery displayed unless they watch it more than once and/or have an interpreter. Gambino is the new face of black consciousness along with J. Cole and Kendrick Lamar. Lately, some of our elite artists are living in the sunken place after reaching great success. Despite that fact, the revolution of supporting REal artist must go on.

Classic video "Key to the City" from Large Professor, one of the last few pioneers of the Boom Bap era. Video Production by Donald Robinson Cole III in association with Olise Forel for Moving Silence and John McFadden for McFantasy Entertainment. From the full length "Professor @ Large" out on Fat Beats Records. We always have to pay homage to the ones who made it possible for some of our greats. For those who don't know Nas is the protege of Large Professor, it takes a diamond to create a diamond.

Lute coming out of the Dreamville Camp is proof that J. Cole is serious about signing REal Emcees. With the all the B$#@! out today we definitely need a rest from the "Crap Music" genre of HipHop. And with one of our favorite college dropouts supporting the "Make America Great Again" movement we need some real ones like Lute to keep the HipHop culture alive. Even though it's never good to take advice from celebrities and their political views, it's still Not a good look.

During a time where most new artist is on that Bu$#@! and a plethora of Trap Music. Sistas Niambi Sala & Thandiwe have taken the path less traveled showing real talent and dignity in their art form. They kinda remind me of a younger version of Floetry which is alright by me. These New York natives have been on their grind for a minute now only finding true support underground, it vexes me how REal talent take a backseat to the fuckery of artist with record deals. Let's support REal artist by checking out these ladies below and supporting their movement.
