So I am sitting here listening to the laundry list of epic songs that Last Emp has done and I don't understand how this guy could fly under the radar for so long. I have been listeneing to him since high school, yet I never hear him mentioned when discussing the best lyricists of all time. To me Last Emperor is the most underrated/unknown hip hop artist ever. I would love to hear other peoples thoughts on who they think has been overlooked for way to long. Could be a good way to get introduced to new/old artists.

I've only ever really listened to the song he put out with KRS-1 and Zach De La Rocha, C.I.A. His verse on that is top notch, I'll have to seek out more.

From the West Coast g-funk era, I think Above the Law is criminally unknown, though I'm sure most people who know of them love them (Black Superman is pretty popular doubt most people know much else by them). I'm also a big fan of the little known P.A., sometimes "Parental Advisory", out of ATL. They were part of the Dungeon Family, whose members include the more well known OutKast and Goodie Mob.
