I was trying to give you the unitiated view, which is similar to mine I have to admit. Unfortunately because of it's glamorous connotations, Rap has gotten itself an image that is nowhere near representative of it's true meanings, origins and purposes.

what exactly constitutes something to be considered "underground" and not mainstream. some would even call talib kweli underground still, while i consider him to be rather main stream at this point.
qft!

yeah talib isn't underground to me anymore either

music that isn't deliberately created to be marketable, will always be superior.
