I do believe immortal technique & Jedi mind trick would belong in underground list

Bambu is underground. Revolution Of The Mind is underground. Rebel Diaz is undergound. Even The Coup can be considered underground. Nas and everyone from Oddfuture is not undergound, or pusha t or childish, etc.

word of advice. some of the best rappers and hip hop artists don't have wikipedia pages. Finding some good dudes is like a godsend.

translation: I hate popular rap. good rap is defined by what I like. if you disagree with my taste you're wrong.

there is nothing wrong with gangsta rap or trap music (also, lil john and lil wayne are both purely pop as far as I'm concerned, not gansta rappers). I have no problem switching between Nas and Young Jeezy or Tech N9ne and Gucci mane. Most of them still make great songs, and even the highly repetitive artists like jeezy and waka are masters of flow and just making great musical/lyrical combinations, even if they're sometimes simplistic. And then there's gangsta rappers that are extremely talented, like Wiz Khalifa, Dr Dre, Biggie, at least those are a few I consider really great. I'm not saying that this is the only good kind of hip-hop. I'm just saying all popular artists are popular for a reason, you don't make money without making music lots of people really enjoy.

by the way, I mentioned him earlier, but you need to check out tech n9ne if you're into that underground stuff. I started off by listening to the LP All 6's and 7's but he has a ton of music out there. Also if you somehow haven't heard of Bone Thugs 'n' Harmony, I bet you'd like them too.

wiz is great, if you haven't heard his mixtape material, it isn't the same as his big label stuff like Black and Yellow. And I was specifically naming three completely different artists.
