Underground: Purist, avante-garde hip-hop that strives to align itself with the sound's origins. The music tends to place an emphasis on lyricism and unconventional beats. Artists: Madlib, MF Doom, El-P, Jurassic 5.

Most of the underground artists are unknown. But artists like Atmosphere are well known around the globe. Every Mainstream artist was once an Underground MC (if they are good). But you get the few that have connections to to the Rap game and they get famous when they shouldnt be, Lil bow wow, lil romeo and most of the "Banger" rapper.
