The most skilled rapper of all time. Also, he was the most genuine and his songs are felt by everyone from all walks of life. I've had his music on repeat for many years now and its never lost his edge. Never met the guy, but just through his music I felt like I lost someone close. It's sad that he's gone but I'm glad people are getting his name out there.

Plain an simple the best to ever do it. Don't believe it go watch Scribble Jam, and Blazing Battle (HBO Televised Competition). He won both competitions, he was so good he came back for all other Scribble Jams to judge and perform.
Correction he did not battle Eminem, however he did battle and beat Immortal Technique. Immortal Technique has talked about it himself go look it up. Position 23 common -_-

It's sad to see that so few people remember how unbelievably clever and talented this man was. He was one of the few truly intelligent rap-artists at the time and frankly a breath of fresh air.
Plus anybody who has defeated Eminem in a rap battle should get some recognition, right?

The most underrated rapper of all time

25 Twisted Insane

Twisted Insane is a Great Underground Rapper. His Chopper Style is Great. He Should be much Above on the List. Listen to his The Insane Asylum & The Last Demon Album & you will get to know how good he is.

Underrated because he also has his own label like tech n9ne with amazing artists

26 Al Kapone
27 Strange Fruit Project

Strange Fruit Project is one of the most under rated group. Their "give an ear to these lyrics" takes me to a place where people are real and truly feeling one another, yet keeps me on my feet where reality is that the real only comes in two's and fews, giving me the ump I need to go thru.

34 Ab Soul
35 Madchild
36 Brotha Lynch

He's pretty twisted and dark but he's still good

Should be way higher on the list

37 Brother Ali

Possibly the most passionate of anyone on this list. You can tell he loves what he does

FOR REAL? You can't have atmosphere without brother ali?

Ali is the greatest Rapper that exists today

Yeah you can because Brother Ali isn't apart of Atmosphere, his apart of Rhymesayers

38 Flatbush Zombies

Better off dead is incredible

Meech is incredible Erick is one of the best producers in the entire game these guys are criminally underrated

They should've gotten higher, they have Meechy Darko's dope voice and lyrics, Erick the Architech's amazing producing skills and amazing lyrics, and you got the hype man/dope lyricist Zombie Juice

This group have changed my life in more then one way. they have opened my eyes and made me think of thing iv never thought of before. Flatbush Zombies should have been way higher up I this list. all three of them have real raw talent that not a lot of other rapers have. definitely my favorite group out of them all.
