Gangster Vs. Underground
 
So yeah.

Underground. with a few exceptions it's the only Hip Hop I prefer. Admittedly my knowledge is pretty limited.

Sparky 10-20-2007 04:52 PM

uh..

not to sound too condescending..
but im not seeing the point of this, seeing as how a lot of the time they're the exact same thing..

underground isn't a genre, its just, well, underground..

See many gangster rappers in the underground? Bascally underground vs. mainstream.

Last time I checked mainstream and gangster weren't synonyms.

How many mainstream rappers aren't gangster though? 5, 6? Kanye West, Common, Talib Kweli...

MF DOOM > both of those.

"B.I.G. and his producer, Puff Daddy, meshed gritty narratives with polished pop beats entirely designed with clubs and pop charts in mind"

its essentially pop music, pretty much all of that you see on MTV is marketed as "gangsta rap".
