I've been trying to broaden my hip hop taste beyond Kendrick, ScHoolboyQ, Doom etc, and trying to expand to more West Coast rap. The ones that have been catching my ear so far have been Joey Bada$$, and Freddie Gibbs collab with Madlib (who is one of my favorite hip hop producers along with Dilla).

This. So much this. I don't really listen to rap that much, but I loved Glover's standup and his acting on Community so I decided to give it a shot. Great sh*t!

Honestly, I've listened to alot of Vince Staples (since he sometimes features with Odd Future), and honestly, I don't see any anything special

Guys like Childish Gambino and Earl Sweatshirt are in my top 4 of favorite rappers, but I think they are pretty well rated among people who have at least a somewhat vested interest in Rap music. I haven't seen a single bad review for Doris, since the album came out (and to be fair, sh!t goes hard in those songs)

I'll probably include my list to include Apathy, MF Doom, Casey Veggies.... for now......

If your list doesn't include Elzhi or Jean Grae, then it automatically invalid.

He's still underrated. At least by the people who only got into TDE and Black Hippy like a year or two ago. He was the first one from their roster I ever heard of (Probably like 4 years maybe 5 years ago) and now that they have gotten hot, you rarely see anybody say that Jay Rock is their favorite, most people only care about Kendrick and Q, and Soul has a solid fan base as well, but Rock gets slept on way too much. He's actually my favorite from the roster. Lmao and how you gonna ask me what im talking about when you mentioned KRS and Rakim? They are practically living legends bro, they might not have the same status as Pac, BIG, L or Nas but anybody who been listening to hip-hop for a while knows they are amazing, Rakim IMO is arguably one of the best, definitely deserves a spot in the top 10 of all time.

Rock's last project dropped in 2011, not sure if you count that as 3 years or 2 years ago, depends I guess.

Anyway of course they all have fans, but Rock is easily the most underrated out of the TDE roster, and even more underrated when being compared to everybody in the game at the moment.

That's crazy. He has one of the best voices in hiphop IMO. He just sounds rugged and street.

Death Grips, Ka, Flatbush Zombies, Black Milk, YC the Cynic, Apathy, GQ, Mr. Muthafuckin' Exquire, Action Bronson, Young Fathers, Clipping, Killer Mike, Milo, The Underachievers, Pro Era, Shabazz Palaces, Big KRIT, Aesop Rock, Ab Soul, Billy Woods, Danny Brown, Das Racist, The Roots, J Dilla, etc.

There are many, many rap/hip-hop artists who should be mainstream and popular because of their talent. Unfortunately, the vast majority of people who "like" hip-hop music don't truly understand it, and have just plain sh*tty taste.

@blade_r: No problem, but when I say "last year", I do mean between 3-2 years ago lol, english is not my first or even second language (I'm a European immigrant to another European country) so when it comes to expressions, metaphors & things like that I don't always got it on lock.

Oh I see well that's my bad again lol and that's no problem bro I didn't even notice and probably wouldn't have if you didn't say anything so you're doing a great job, I just wasn't sure if you meant exactly two years or not that's why I brought up Rock's 2011 project :)
