Give me yours. I'll be back with mine later but i know these will make it in somewhere:

Blu & Exile "Below The Heavens"
Deltron 3030-not really underground but not really mainstream either.
Blue Scholars "Long march ep'
Company Flow 'Fancrusher Plus"

Have to think about the rest.

what qualifies for underground?

Can say a Shad - The Old Prince qualify being canadian?

Or a Three 6 Mafia - Mystic Stylez?

What about Cormega? Screwball? Count Bass D?

SRP, i actually think all of them would classify as underground. That 3-6 was before they blew up. Kind of the same way i would almost consider Master P's first album underground.

Dope list KJ. That Vakill would be a darkhorse for me as well.

I'm having trouble finding time to do mine. 3 kids running around screaming and wife gone to work. Can't wait til school starts. My days off are more stressful than being at work lol.

nice list K Rob. That Reks will probably make mine too just beating out Wise Intelligent. Still sleeping on K Rino. I have "Blood Doctrine", "Triple Darkness Vol. 1", and "Stories from The Black Book" on my Amazon wish list but they all cost a little too much. Triple Darkness is down under $9.00 now so i may go ahead and get it.

Section 8 Mob? Were they kind of like Trinity Garden Cartel, i think i had that album back in the day.

thanks man. Glad to see you showing Reks some luv and why don't you just download some of those Rino albums until later?

Section 8 Mob are outta Washington D.C. and they had a southern/east coast gangsta/hardcore sound. Real dope album. It was 4 rappers in the grp and one was female.

This wasn't very easy.

In no order:

1) Slaine - White Man Is THe Devil, Vol 2: Citizen Caine
2) Def 3 & Moka Only - Dog River
3) Immortal Technique - Revolutionary, Vol 2
4) El-P - I'll Sleep When You're Dead (The culmination and perfection of what began with Company Flow)
5) Blackalicious - Blazing Arrow
6) Vakill - Worst Fears Confirmed (just lately gaining favor over Darkest Cloud)
7) RA Rugged Man - Die, Rugged Man, Die!
Cool CunninLynguists - Southernunderground
9) Rodan - Theophany: The Book Of Elevation
10) Blu & Mainframe - Johnson & Jonson (I know I'm solo on this pick, but in my listening, it belongs top 10)


A list of the albums that made this so difficult:

JMT - Legacy Of Blood
AOTP - Torture Papers
Sunz Of Man - The Last Shall Be First
Invincible - Shapeshifters
Sonic Sum - Sanity Annex
LCOB - Equividium
Megalon - Penny For Your Thoughts
Binary Star - Waterworld
Apathy - Eastern Philosophy
J Live - All Of THe Above
Vakill - Darkest Cloud
Aesop Rock - Labor Days
Nine - Cloud 9
Oktober - Art Of Raw
Q Unique - Vengeance Is Mine
Somobe - Great Communication
Demigodz - The Godz Must Be Crazy EP
Ill Bill - What's Wrong With Bill?
Shabazz The Disciple - Book Of Shabazz
Shad - The Old Prince
Smut Peddlers - Porn Again

I would also like to note that, while K Rino is easily one of my top 10 emcees, I don't hear an album to class with these (personally). I just dl'd Stories From The Black Book, though, and it seriously sounds like a contender on the first couple spins.

I don't know why the smiley dropped instead of the number eight. I'll try again: 8
