This week we are featuring one the dopest underground artist since Andre 3000, Flying Lotus. What I like about Flying Lotus is that he's not afraid to push the envelope taking the culture to another level while staying true to its roots. I sense a day we will be back in a new Golden Age of HipHop in the next 5 years. We all know that REal art doesn't die it comes back around full circle.

Hopsin is one of those highly skilled underground lyricists who is highly misunderstood. Being one of the smartest rappers in the game doesn't come with a whole lot of fan appreciation. But they do last the test of time, Hopsin has proven himself time and time again.
Yet in my opinion, he has failed to capture the mainstream audience. Don't get me wrong despite not being signed to a major label he has become a successful millionaire and probably has more money than your favorite rapper. But if rappers were paid on lyrical content and complex bars he would be a billionaire. I've been a fan since the beginning when he sounded like the "Black Eminem ". I mean he did admit it was Em that inspired him to rap so yeah I can see why. Just imagine a Hopsin and Eminem collaboration, now that would be epic.

BIG K.R.I.T., another one of HipHop's most underrated artist in the game. Even though he has had some commercial success to me it's not enough. An Emcee of his caliber needs to be larger than life and as wealthy as King James (Lebron).
We need to support our conscious artist so they can create more content and not be tempted by the dark side of HipHip. It took Jay-Z over twenty years and almost losing his wife and kids for him to make a fully conscious album. He already admitted he would have been released a more "Woke" LP if he thought it would make him rich.

Sa-Roc is the result of Real HipHop and Truth having a baby. Probably my #1 favorite female Emcee over Lauryn Hill which says a lot for me. I know most of y'all haven't heard of her before and it's cool "they" don't like intelligence done in black. Not to mention she has more lyrical skills than all of the top mainstream rappers male or female. I say this to say if we truly supported real talent, an artist like Sa-Roc would be as big as Michael Jackson.
Real artist are so underrated mainly because being educated is not the narrative they promote, they want hard workers, not smart ones. We seem to be forever stuck in this dumbed down version of HipHop and it is disgusting. Before I go off on one of my long rants because this topic makes me upset. When you know better, do better it's the only way to move the culture and our people forward, peace.

Stormzy, another UK rapper who has been lightin' up the internet with his pen. Before you know it our UK brothas will surpass us in the skilled lyricist department. Don't get me wrong auto-tune has its place but every lowlife wannabe shouldn't be doin' it. But hey I guess its better than knockin' some old lady down and taking their purse.

When Chris Rivers first set out on his grind to establish his name in HipHop we featured his freestyle on Sway In The Morning. The son of Legendary Emcee Big Punisher was determined not to ride is fathers coattails by using his own name. The plan worked, before announcing his royal bloodline he gains respect in the streets for being Lyrical Beast. Ironically he sounds like his dad and at this rate, he will surpass his father's success.

This artist was brought to my attention a couple of months ago. Bas kinda reminds me of a De La Soul version of Rick Ross, wait for it.......riiigght lol. I love the simple things he raps about along with his lyrical skills and creativity. If I'm correct this is one of J Cole's homeboys who has featured on a couple of his singles. Take a listen below and tell us what you think.

Once again REal HipHop at its' finest, with the likes of Talib Kweli, 9th Wonder, Rapsody, and Hi-Tek how can you ever go wrong. If they had one more legend on this track they would have formed Voltron. But nevertheless, this track is flawless from Bars to Beat everything is on point. This is HipHop in its purest form...period.

Now I know I'm a little late with this Lil Dicky post but hey, I must admit this Jewish kid got skills. There aren't too many non-black Emcees who catch my attention, I mean I know they exist but a lot of rappers follow the norm which is not my cup of tea. With the presence of Snoop Dogg, it gives him an extra stamp of approval because I know Snoop don't just feature on just anybody's track.

J Cole definitely one of my favorite Emcees of his era, watching his growth as a lyricist and a man was amazing. I remember he was in Dave Chappelle "Block Party" not as a performer but in the audience.
Later I learn Talib Kweli & Mos Def were two of his mentos before J Cole was a household name.
His music will last the test of time, being that he writes his own lyrics, make his own beats, and produce other artists. He will get "The Bag" one way or another, what is live performance below and tell us what you think.

It was brought to my attention that we only feature so-called "conscious" rappers. Not true we look at skill first content second and then the beat. As a matter of fact, I love the genre of hardcore street rap the most. WestSideGunn is one of the few street dudes who does it right. But I'm sorry if you claiming to be "Gangsta" but wearing pink poker-dot leggins, Hell No!
Apollo Brown gets overshadowed a lot from that other major artist in Detriot, his beats are even better than Mr. Kardashian's. Apollo is great at picking out the dopest lyricist to work with. WestSideGunn is just another testament to that, check'em out below.

Ok, let the record show this is the first time ever we have feature King of South lyricist T.I. It's never happened before simply because I didn't like his music earlier in his career. Tip got my attention the album he made before going to prison "Paper Trail". Fast forward I was more impress by T.I. the entrepreneur over T.I. the rapper.
Well, those days are gone I can relate more to his music now that his music has matured to my liking. This one hits home for me truly HipHop in its purest form. First Jay - Z now Tip what other mainstream artists will transcend into the "Conscious" Rap community?

I'm glad to see Rock is back on the grind for lyrical supremacy, ever since he lost his other half (Sean Price) he has regained new energy for HipHop. Hands down one of the dopest baritone voices in the game, not too long ago he was on a bit of a hiatus from the spotlight. I look forward to hearing what other projects he will be working on, but in the meantime check him out below his skills are still flawless as ever.

Now I know Black Hippy may not be Unsung with all their global success, but Jay Rock is. Not to mention I was featuring Kendrick and the Gang on UnsungHipHop before he blew the F#@! up. I'd like to say we had something to do with that but nahh. Dr. Dre has connections...lol. Either way, this is a dope track I like to listen to, I hope you feel the same.

Styles P is one of the great legends in HipHop. (Random Fact: Before the group, The Lox signed with Puffy they were called The WarLox.) Styles P is known for spitting street knowledge about life in the hood and he is proof veteran HipHop artist can strive without negative lyrics or signed to a major label.
I must admit I wasn't a fan earlier in his career I couldn't relate to his lyrics and I was on my De La Soul tip. But now I'm a true fan of his music and his movement of living a vegan lifestyle. It's amazing where human growth can take us with time and maturity. Check out the visuals to his latest single below and tell us what you think.

All hail the true Queen of HipHop, being popular or rachet doesn't make you the best. This Queen has been in power since 2012 but because she speaks positively about black empowerment artist like her don't get the media "push" those other reality HipHop clowns get. Sa-Roc is the best female Emcee for almost a decade.
She has the skill, the look, the dope in-depth lyrics that will put you in an educational trace of black history. She is probably thousands of years ahead of our time just like Common. And one day they will read about her in scripture a thousand years from now. If you want to support REal HipHop start with Emcees that enlightened us not the buffoons the White Supremacist use to keep us in the dark.

What's good fam, we are back from our hiatus to bring you more dope underground, under the radar, and UnsungHipHop artist. We thought to start up the new year with probably one of the most slept on artist Tobe Nwigwe.
While real HipHop heads like Sway, Erykah Badu, and Dave Chappelle showed Mr. Nwigwe some love most of those lame so-called "Black Radio" didn't give my man the proper acknowledgment. But no problem that's why we are here just in case you missed this phenomenal talented brotha, his wife Fat and producer LaNell Grant. We featured one of our favorites joint off the The Originals LP.
