Who is in your opinion the most underrated rapper ever? I personally believe that scarface is (not the movie). Scarface has been called "your favorite rapper's favorite rapper" because he has influenced rappers like Raekwon, Drake, Ludacris, Rick Ross, Freddie Gibbs, Jay-Z, 2Pac, Lil Wayne, Lil Scrappy, Young Buck, UGK, Method Man, T.I. and a lot of Houston Rappers such as Mike Jones, Slim Thug, Z-Ro, Lil Keke and Paul Wall. He has had at least three classics or at least five if you include his albums with the geto boys. Anyway do any of you agree with me about this or do think a different rapper is more underrated? I look forward to hearing your thoughts.

Really, Scarface?

I would name people like Kool G Rap, Rakim, Canibus, Elzhi, One Be Lo, Masta Ace, R.A The Rugged Man, AZ or Pharoahe Monch before I got to Scarface.

To answer your question, I think the most underrated MC as of right now would be Elzhi, hands down.

I would agree that Elzhi hands down is one of the most, if not the most, underrated rapper of all time. This guy oozes skill, technically and creatively, his rhyme schemes are so complex and his flow is seamless.... like waves of perfection rolling off the tongue. He's been one of my favs since slum village and I really hope that one day his name is in the forefront of the game.....

I believe Elzhi could hold his own with the likes of Eminem, Royce, Crooked I, Jay-Z, Common... pretty much any of the big names out there right now.

I agree that elzhi is the most underrated of today's rappers. Elmatic is one of my two favorite albums released this year. I still can't decide which is better, section.80 or elmatic. I disagree about rakim being underrated though. If you ask hip hop heads who the greatest rapper many of them would mention Rakim. R.A. the rugged man is great though. His verse on uncommon valor is one of the greatest of all time in my opinion. That verse literally made my jaw drop first time I heard it.

The music has nothing to do with women in g strings, bling, rims and cars.

So just because their music isn't about those things they're automatically better? Don't be ignorant. Besides if you've heard to the geto boys album "resurrection" then you would know that that's not what their music is about at all. Scarface raps about the same thing that raekwon does on "only built 4 cuban linx...". Are you seriously going to try to tell me that only built 4 cuban linx isn't a classic just because of the subject matter? 2pac, biggie jay z, n.w.a. and many other hip hop greats rapped about those things too. Are you going to try to tell me that 2pac isn't an incredible rapper?

I wouldn't say you're the most underrated of all time, but you're really good. I really like your voice. Great lyricism too. I commented, liked, and Favorited the video.

Are you saying 2pac ,jay z or biggie are under rated ? I thought this thread was about under rated rappers.
As far a ghetto boys I was never a big fan I actually went to Sunday school with bushwick bill.
At the time I was a little to young to really understand the lyrics and I have not listened to any off there stuff from past or present.

But as far as under rated rappers , guys or girls that don't get the air play or big record deals
Immortal,jedi mind. ..

By the way giving my opinion no matter who I would have said including vanilla ice...has nothing to do with ignorance it's my opinion..

That's why opinions are like &:;@ holes everyone has one and no body thinks theres stinks...

So save the personal attacks my friend..

Have a great day.

I grew up on Redman and always felt like people never truly appreciated just how sick his flow was. If I had to pick one who was truly underrated though I would say Jean Grae. She is one baaaaaad mofo and could rap circles around many of her male counterparts let alone these pink haired, spread legged hacks that are supposed to represent females in the rap game nowadays.

Yeeaaa... Jean Grae is a good pick too! Hella underrated!!! She's one of my favorite people in general, her personality and intelligence is brilliant, I slightly crush on her.




I love her spirit. She'll give you a regular good laugh on twitter too lol
