Top Ten Underground Rappers of 2013

The Top TenXW

1Kendrick Lamar

He isn't undergroud, he doesn't suck like most mainstream, but he isn't underground. Just like Eminem, ice cube, snoop dogg, and nas aren't underground, its mainstream but the rare good kind. In my opinion, the best rappers are mainstream they are just rare. There are some underground rappers that are good, like Big KRIT, tech9 etc. but I've never seen an underground rapper as passionate as tupac, as unique as snoop dogg (the old snoop dogg), or as crazy as Eminem. by the way Big KRIT is the best underground rapper of 2013

The future of rap. I expect a lot of great things in the future from uncle Kendrick. -

I never seen someone more passionate since 2pac

Kendrick Lamar is definitely bringing hip hop back!

2Hopsin

After hearing Knock Madness, I'm not afraid to say that Hopsin is the best out there right now. The only reason why he's not bigger is because of his unique style, it's too dark for the mainstream. I love how he's self made (Writes his own music, produces his own music, directs his own videos, and owns his record company) and how confident he is. Confident enough to call out all the biggest names (Kendrick, Kanye, Tyler, Wayne, Rick Ross, and even Obama).

If you haven't heard Hopsin yet, really pay attention to his lyrics and give him a chance.

Ill Mind 6 really got me thinking.

Hopsin deserves to be #1, he's much better then everyone on this whole list.

Best underground rapper ever

3A$AP Rocky

Even though his hit F***** Problem went mainstream. Overall he has achieved more underground success. I recommend the songs Peso and Goldie. - cameron.lair.5

4Tyler, The Creator

He has his own unique style that really makes him great. He's not only a funny rapper, but also has a great use of play on words. Domo23 and She feat Frank Ocean are great songs check them out -

I love him. Not only his music is great but he's also a really funny guy.

Tyler is going to shake the rap game for a minuete but doesn't mean he wont do al lot of damage

5Big K.R.I.T.

One of my favorite if not favorite underground rapper. His flow is unbelievable and he has some of the best lyrics I've ever heard in my life. I recommend the songs, Boobie Miles, American Rapstar, Bigger Picture and REM. -

Lyrically amazing and his flow is astounding

Lyrical god! And doesn't change for mainstream

6Joe Budden

The singer from the rap group Slaughterhouse. Put out a album called No Love Lost. I love that album and is one of my favorite rap albums. He has a good flow and a good voice, which you don't see in most rappers. I recommend the songs NBA, She Don't Put It Down Like You, and Last Day -

He will SLAUGHTER you in the HOUSE!

7Kid Ink

He has a unique style and I love the choruses of all his songs. He always has good collaborations and always leaves you wanting more. I recommend I Just Want It All, Hell and Back, Bonus Track and Take Over The World. -

Great combination of great hooks, nasty beats, & some clever rhymes! Can't wait to see him in concert

Kid ink has the metaphors like lil Wayne but is very truthful

Future of west coast rap

He has great background music for a underground rapper. His flow is amazing and he always has me wanting to listen for more. I recommend Nolita and Pray. -

10SwizZz

The Contenders

11Jarren Benton
12Chief Keef

He is one of the most talked about underground rappers right now. I'm not the biggest fan of him, but I do like the song Don't Like by him and Love Sosa. One thing is for sure once you listen to Chief Keef, you'll never forget him. -

13Machine Gun Kelly

Lace Up! MGK is definitely top 10 he needs more recognition. He is lyrically the best out there. No one can throw a show like him

His voice is amazing, rapping to fast and lyrics are awesome...

Mgk has a lyrical flow like number 1 else
