Underground Hip-Hop Part 2

You may recall some time ago, I wrote a post in which I put up a couple of tracks from some underground hip-hop artists that you might have missed.

Well, it’s back again, and there are some artists in here that you’ve probably never heard of, and some you may have. Either way, between them they provide music to suit a variety of hip-hop styles.

The same theory applies to this post as applied to its predecessor: This is merely my way of sifting through the hundreds of artists that drop tracks daily and showing you a few more to check for. Check them out and broaden your horizons.

Bishop G-Deep Mind
-As the title states, this is a very deep track and Bishop G definitely paints some vivid (albeit somewhat depressing) pictures. The haunting production adds to the atmosphere here too.

The Nice Guys-Move A Mountain
-The beat screams Kanye/J Dilla, but their raps are more reminiscent of The Cool Kids. They’re not bad, and definitely have a good sound going.

J. Cole-Lights Please
-OK, I’m cheating a bit here as J. Cole featured in the last one. However, it turns out that I don’t care. The dude can rap, and this is the newest track of his. For those of you still sleeping on him, here’s a co-sign: He was Jay-Z’s first signing to his new Roc Nation label. This is another nice track, with unobtrusive production and some good rapping.

Truck North-Jill Jawn
-Truck North is best known for his features with The Roots. Here he delivers a decent slice of conscious rap, over an interestingly off-beat production.

Raekwon-House of Flying Daggers Ft. Inspectah Deck, Ghostface Killah and Method Man
-We all know the Wu-Tang Clan. However, for some of the casual fans, you may not know each member’s name. Here’s a cut from Raekwon, featuring 3 more Wu-Tang members, that is definitely a slice of raw, gritty hip-hop. It was produced by J Dilla too, so the production doesn’t disappoint.

    That J.Cole track is immense, the production is simple but effective. Exactly my kind of song.

    Good looking out on the Raekwon track too, been meaning to get hold of that for a while now.

    Superb isn’t it? Even though it’s already clocked up over 100 listens on my iTunes, I’ve yet to get bored of it!

  • ajay182

    100?! Seriously? It takes tracks months, nay, years to get that far for me!

    To be fair, due to the distinct lack of broadband internet (or ‘hi-speed’ as our north american cousins call it) the only new tracks I can get hold of are ones uploaded by you on this website!
