But that's hip-hop for you.... the best rappers don't ever become the most successful, popular, most widely recognised or most highly praised.
Most hip-hop (mainstream/gangster stuff) is just crap, much like most music is.
But there are plenty of artists who deserve more recognition and deserve to be heard by any fan of the genre and who will never be.... I think it's a
tough question really.
Not best, most lyrical, best flow, quickest or whatever... but most underrated.
There are reasons why artists are underrated and not being well known and not being mainstream is pretty much the number one reason.
I've listened to rap since the 80's and absolutely love Hip-Hop.... but intelligent, artistic and interesting Hip-Hop.
It's purely subjective man, there's no wrong or right answer but for me personally, I just don't like gangster stuff... I did I guess in my teens
for a while but it's like anything, you change, grow and develop different tastes.
