Real Underground HIP-HOP Classics

A Listmania! list by S. Caperton "caperton3030" (Deatsville, AL USA)
(REAL NAME)   
The list author says: "Ok, over the years Hip-Hop has generated a worldwide fanbase and that means there is more and more of a market for it. With all the artists releasing albums, new talent, crappy greatest hits album attempts, media coverage and publicity of top talent (just because they are popular don't think that makes there music any less satisfying, I'm not complaining) there are just some artists who fall between the cracks or are just plain overlooked. Here are some albums through the years you may have missed out on:"
