Best Underground Rap Songs


The Top Ten

1 I Used to Love H.E.R. - Common
2 Writer's Club - Proverb

Africa's number one MC respected by MCs like Talib Kweli, Yasiin Bey, Wordsworth and Mode 9 among others. He started off by dropping heavy bars on tracks like "Microphone Sweet Home", "Heartbeat", "Say Something", "1st, 2nd & 3rd" and "Nothing to Me"...then he was called the most technical lyricist on the continent. When he dropped "Writer's Club" he got nods from underground and commercial artists locally and globally...and became one of the most technical lyricist globally. Listen to this legendary lyricist. - thamsanqa

3 Dance with the Devil - Immortal Technique

This song is a bit long but it's dark and really creepy. It's scary it takes a turn at the end. If you haven't listened to this song I'd suggest you to do so now. Immortal Technique touched the culture with songs such as this "You'll Never Know" but there was something about this song - thamsanqa

4 C.R.E.A.M. - Wu-Tang Clan

Cash Rules Everything Around Me! How many rappers today referrence that word - thamsanqa

5 You Got Me - The Roots
6 Hip Hop Saved My Life - Lupe Fiasco

This song introduced a rapper with a different caliber when rappers like 50 Cent, Jeezy, Kanye West & Lil Wayne were ruling. This song gave life to Lupe's rap career - thamsanqa

7 Tell the Youth - Hymphatic Thabs
8 Cold Hearted - Blu & Exile
9 Zero Dark Thirty - Aesop Rock
10 All I Do - Hishaam
