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

not to sound too condescending..

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

"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".
