Whats up hip-hop heads!! One of my favorite hobbys in music is to listen to new artist and spread the word of good new hip-hop music with substance and originality. So my question for everyone is who is your favorite hip-hop artist no one knows about?? My current two are Jabee from San Antonio and Ryshon Jones from Philly. Since im from LA I think a lot of people sleep on is Co$$.

Hopsin? Unknown? I don't think 20+ million views on his vids is considered unknown. Jurassic 5 gotta couple mil on their vids too. I think you guys are stretching on the definition of "unknown".

I guess I'll just put random stuff from my ipod.

 

Shad is pretty dope:

 

 

Celph Titled isn't half bad, this was more a group feature sort of thing but it has great production:

 

 

Braille and Othello collaborated a few years ago on an album as Lightheaded. Some good stuff:

 

 

I used to collect a ton of lesser known stuff a few years back. I'd just DL whatever looked interesting and found a bunch of lesser known artists back then. However, one by one my favorite blogs each had less activity/updates until they all simply shut down. It sucks :eh:
