Tired of listening to rap that samples nothing but gunshots? Sick of hearing 'bitch' and 'ho' every other line on a track? You've come to the right place...

Don't come here expecting crap gangsta rap. This is true hip hop. If you were expecting Snoop or The Game to make an appearance here, you've slept on this stuff for long enough. Ordered from most to least underrated, I present you a list of artists that are guaranteed to run lyrical circles around the competition, and chances are high that most of these names will be new to you. If so, peep dem out!
