Have you ever heard of hype? You know, that minor stipulation that keeps all your favorite artists off the radio and the regular, sometimes undeserving, 140 characters being plastered in the general public’s faces instead. In a perfect world, good music doesn’t fall on deaf ears, but since there are too many artists aiming to jump through the same window, the shards of glass may have hindered the easy access to the diamonds in the rough.

None the matter; good music is eternal you see. Even in hindsight, the musical qualities that can accompany on your daily shuffle far outlasts any sort of incessant promotion bent on making headlines with first week numbers.

Enclosed is a mish-mash of Hip-Hop talent who still made a splash under the radar of commercial exclusivity. With the stoic underground, fairer sex and rap’s most scrutinized all sharing the same umbrella, the gang’s all here so you can appreciated the underappreciated.
