MF Doom is a must listen as far as underground hip hop goes. To be honest, he isn't a stand out MC but has absolutely brilliant production. Very mellow.
Check out:
Operation Doomsday
Madvillainy (by Madvillain, it's a collab with the producer Madlib)

Some other great albums, that I can't really be bothered to describe.

Cannibal Ox - The Cold Vein
K'naan - The Dusty Foot Philosopher
Mos Def - The New Danger
Look Daggers - Suffer in Style
Antipop Consortium - Arrhythmia

Any one of those would be a great choice.

I'd say Doom is a pretty standout Emcee myself, or at least his lyrics and voice are.

Anyway, GZA's kinda underground, he's good to look into.

I've never seen anything really spectacular about MF Doom.

Check out Sadistik, though. He's dope.

Deep Puddle dynamics- The Taste Of Rain..Why Kneel? is experimental and unsusual. Busdrivers Roadkillovercoat still gets a few listens on my MP3.

I get what he's talking about. He just doesn't seem as talented as many people make him out to be.
