Highly recommended. Usually, finding the best in underground hip hip means taking a chance on lots of 12's you've never heard of, at $6 a piece. Here, Rawkus does the digging for you with 2 CDs (27 tracks) of the best underground MC's and producers plus a few more established artists. The collection is as dope as you'd expect with MC and producers including Mos Def, Q-Tip, Da Cipher, Prime, OC, Ras Kas, Common, Black Thought, Pharoahe Monch, Kool Keith, Natural Elements, Talib Kweli, Bahamadia, Rah Digga, A.L., Lord Have Mercy, Krist, Jurassic 5, KRS, Problem, Indelible MC's, Word 'A Mouth, Mike Zoot, Shawn J. Period, Hazadus, Kwest, IG Off, DJ Hi-Tk, DJ Scratch, Curt Gowdy, DJ Nu-Mark, Cut Chemist and more.
