esoteric sucks, fuck him, so does cage. actually fuck underground hiphop, the good stuff is really good, but that's about it, just a bunch of white boys with no skills tryin to be a part of something.the rest of your picks are on point though,(bumpy nuckles is a mediocre emcee he's not great but at least he isn't horrible)

 

my picks.. Organized Konfusion(pharoahe monche is sick dun)

common sense. Lootpack. the Arsonists. Jeru the damaja. gotta hype my boy Sage francis, and the non prophets.

 

just forget about this genre separation of hiphop crap, being underground means not being good enough in most cases.

 

listen to what's good. nas, krs one, slick rick, wutang, biggie smalls was the illest on his 1st album, etc..

 

whatever's clever. i used to hate, but in the past couple years i realized that underground emcees don't have much to say, and they lack skills. phew, don't get me started on this rap shit, i'm the mad critic. i'll argue till your ears bleed.

the arsonist have sick beats but their rapping is mediocre

common is the man(i've owned every album). . but mainstream and not what mr zenyth asked for

nas sucks and is a fucking sell out but he first album is good and the 2nd is pretty good aswell

KrSone . my fav mc. . go get every album NOW!

i'm a jeru fan but i wasn't feeling his newist. .

 

biggie sucked other then his first album. . .

and even then he was ok. . his own words say

"your nobody till somebody kills you"

 

ps.being white has zero to do with skillz. . .

i'd say "above average"

 

common is the man(i've owned every album). . but mainstream and not what mr zenyth asked for

i'm talking about the first 2 albums especially, which i hate to say aren't very mainstream

nas sucks and is a fucking sell out but he first album is good and the 2nd is pretty good aswell

first of all.. let me say"live at the barbecue" and "back to the grill again"..

that there explains my mans crudentials.

nas always comes through with lyrics, with meaning, "Nas is like" is his dopest song and off of his 3rd album. that album and nastradamus, i have to say aren't of the same calliber as the first 2 but they both have some very good songs on them, since then qb's finest, the new dj clue, wutang, nature, he's delivered dope verses on all of these albums, plus his new shit coning out, He was gonna call it stillmatic, then Death of escobar, so you know he's back on some illmatic raw type shit, he said he's gonna be doing alot of work with primo on this album, which means it's certified classic already. don't sleep, it's the cousin of death. nas is ill, and about selling out, psttt.. if i could be driving anything i want, drinking chrystal and moet, surrounded by bitches and smoking dank weed all day, in my armani, in my mansion. etc etc... cause i have the money to now, shit i'd make a few songs for the radio, hell why not, i got mad skill. i should be on the radio. i'd do it and i hope you'd do it too, if not you're a fool.

KrSone . my fav mc. . go get every album NOW!

agreed hands down

i'm a jeru fan but i wasn't feeling his newist. .

going form havin Dj Premire doing you beats the man himself, to doing your own beats and your shit is gonna be lacking, he still has lyrics though, they're pretty good too, the beats were off, the packaging sucked, i can't stand ms. marvel, and what's up with no "can't stop the prophet"?

 

biggie sucked other then his first album. . .

and even then he was ok. . his own words say

"your nobody till somebody kills you"

i've heard freestyles he had skills, i used to say the same thing, he had some sick flows and word play for a fat, jiggy,thug, mothafucker, that album was classic, and some of his second was too, also, his third, and the shit he did with jay-z, all dope. he was unbelieveable.

 

ps.being white has zero to do with skillz. . .

never said it did, it contributes to the corn ball factor though, i'd hate to go out and say this but Eminem is the best emcee out right now(at this moment in time, but not by anymeans .."ever"), i know his subject matter is repetative, but every emcee has their own shit, and can't do everything.but he does have that corniness to him, he looked shook at the source awards. Apathy from boston is ill to, way better than esoteric

we'll have to agree to disagree

agreed

i'm not saying he was never a good mc. .

nas is like is a great song but that one out like 20

the upcoming album sounds promising . . we'll see

nastradamos was crappest shit i have ever heard, fuck selling out. . you can get radio play with out doing it. . look at common

i hate that shit if one more rapper comes out with a song about how much cash they have or how they be bling blinging it, i'm going to go m.o.p. on them "anti up"(they never sold out)

 

agreed hands down

glad you agee, i told this girl that krs was my fav artist and she said who are they. . and i walked away

 

going form havin Dj Premire doing you beats the man himself, to doing your own beats and your shit is gonna be lacking, he still has lyrics though, they're pretty good too, the beats were off, the packaging sucked, i can't stand ms. marvel, and what's up with no "can't stop the prophet"?

i pretty much agree

though lyrics aren't enough or maybe canibus would of had a first good album

 

 

i've heard freestyles he had skills, i used to say the same thing, he had some sick flows and word play for a fat, jiggy,thug, mothafucker, that album was classic, and some of his second was too, also, his third, and the shit he did with jay-z, all dope. he was unbelieveable.

thoughs are what the industry calls "freestyles" all it means is that no one has heard before, they were all writen, its a fact that he never did off the head freestyles

nice word play is true

don't get me started on jay-z

 

never said it did, it contributes to the corn ball factor though, i'd hate to go out and say this but Eminem is the best emcee out right now(at this moment in time, but not by anymeans .."ever"), i know his subject matter is repetative, but every emcee has their own shit, and can't do everything.but he does have that corniness to him, he looked shook at the source awards. Apathy from boston is ill to, way better than esoteric

eminems skill are tiptop but if i have hear him kill his wife more time i think by brain will go to mush. . .if he came out with an album that wasn't shock-hop i think he could be one of the greats. . his first album before dre was realy good. .

i haven't heard apathy and i go to shows when ever i'm in the bean. . i'll look him up though

on eso's album has some great songs the tranformers beat, the songs with virtuoso

i used to think vertuoso was the man. . but hen he came out with that shitty wannabe jay-z bullshit. . .
