I'm not gonna front and say I've heard his whole catalogue but from what I've heard Sav Killz can spit. He does the all elementz series with DJ Ronin.

For other artists I'd recommend giving a cd or two that people should check out.

check all the albums. The Old Prince is the best IMO tho.

Undiluted Karma, since when are people sleeping on Freeway and Masta Ace? =) U-God fucked himself with unfocused solo albums, that's why he's not mentioned enuff.

Blueprint & Illogic aren't mentioned enuff.
Gift of Gab isn't mentioned enuff.
Rise isn't mentioned enuff.
Sleep isn't mentioned enuff.
Matlock isn't mentioned enough.
Blackalicious aren't mentioned enough.
Panacea aren't mentioned enough.
Rakaa isn't mentioned enough.

Seriously, people, check these rappers.

I see some MCs who are already legends mentioned in this thread. I don't look at them as slept on in a general sense because they've gained enough recognition thru their careers to make themselves unforgettable to an entire generation. I wouldn't name them "slept on" because it's like a discredit to their accomplishments, I would rather say there are some people who are just unaware history and truly great, influential Hip Hop artists.


Where's BIG D O? He usually posts new quality slept on artists who are on their grind to make a name for themselves online. Check this: http://purehip-hop.blogspot.com/


Another reason for more slept on artists today is because of technology, everyone's making records so Hip Hop went from a select group of rare talent who all made classics during the late 80, early 90's, to hundreds of thousands of artists today online with less rare talent, which results in over saturation and fewer classics. Because of that, it's harder to find above average artists who you really remember.

There is so much music coming out today I can barely keep up. I keep maybe 10-15% of the music sent to my inbox weekly from these commercial Hip Hop blogs who will push a bunch of new wack artists who come from outta nowhere.

cosign on Blackalicious. "Blazing Arrow" is a classic, and all of their albums are great.

Good points.


Not slept on but I don't think Hell Razah gets enough props for his mcing. He prob does here though.


Most slept on are probably Kev Brown, Damu the Fudgemonk.

these are some of the artists that i've been impressed with that's on the uprise this year. all of these guys are more or less up and coming except for K-DEF who's been around since 1992 doing shit with Marley Marl, Wu-Tang, LL, etc. But people are sadly still sleeping! the "Night Shift" mini album he's dropping later this month is unbelivably sick, believe me you will want that in your life!

oh, and on the soul side of things i am hyped for that guy that from London that RZA is executive producing the debut album for. Josh Osho is his name; i can't stand most shit that passes for soul these days but this guy is something totally else.
