Most Underrated Lyricists/Rappers

This has always been a conversation when mentioning a great a rapper who doesn't get the credit he deserves. Anyone who visits this blog (No one) you can leave your comments too. I'm going to try for a Top 5 Most Underrated. It's not going to be perfect, but it'll be damn near.

5: Slick Rick (Solo)
4: Common (Solo)
3: Black Thought (The Roots)
2: Big L (D.I.T.C., Children of the Corn, Solo)
1: AZ (The Firm, Solo)

Some of my choices are maybe questionable but I feel that they're definetely somewhere top 25, and some of them top 10. Yet their names rarely gets mentioned. Actually with Hip Hop Heads their names get mentioned a lot.

Honorable Mentions: Kool Moe Dee (Threacherous Three, Solo), Guru (Gang Starr, Solo), Mos Def (Black Star, Solo), Andre 3000 (OutKast, Solo), Scarface (Geto Boys, Solo), and Inspectah Deck (Wu-Tang Clan).

Tomorrow I will be doing most overrated, peace.

Common Isn't Mentioned Because
1: He Never Truely Blew Up In The Game
2: He's From The Chi And The Midwest Has Never Had Control Of The Game
3: He Hasn't Really Had Much Influence Or Impact On The Game.

However With 3. He's Definitely Given Me Some Inspiration For When I'm Writing. Definitely.
