What is the best underground hip-hop/rap song you think I should download?

Asked by mass_pike4 (2096points) December 25th, 2009

I need to add some new beats to my itunes…

I like artists like Jedi Mind Tricks, Gang Starr, People Under the Stairs, and The Pharcyde to give you a layout of the type of beats and lyricists I enjoy.

Any help would be great! Happy holidays!

I really like “Sage Francis” and “Dan Le Sac vs Scroobius Pip” and “Atmosphere”.

I don’t know if this qualifies as underground, but try Kid Cudi. This song features Ratatat, so you can’t go wrong with it.

Gillie da Kid. Not exactly Jedi Mind Tricks, but “get down on the ground” is a pretty fantastic song.

All you need to listen to all day long: ‘Come Clean’ by Jeru the Damaja.
Another smooth track is ‘Chief Rocka’ by Lords of the Underground, when you like it like that ;)
’ Boy Meets World’ by Erick Sermon. Niiiiiice ooooonnne.

Dizzee Rascal’s earlier stuff (check out Boy In Da Corner) may be to your liking.

Immortal Technique “Caught in a hustle” “Crimes of the heart”
Dead Prez “Tallahassee Days”
Mr. Lif “earth crusher”
MF DOOM ” no snakes alive”
Nas ” The world is yours” ” let there be light”
Talib Kweli “listen”
Common “I used to love H.E.R ”

most anything from these artists is great, usually older stuff is the best, hopefully this helps get you started, let me know if you want more artists/ specific songs
