    Doesnt have to be too obscure, but some that you might not usually find in the top tens. Im in the mood for a bit of hiphop atm

    to get things going I can recommend these favourites:
    Marley Marl in Control Vol 1 -
    classic 88 showcase album with rappers:
    Big Daddy Kane
    Biz Markie
    Kool G Rap
    Craig G
    Heavy D & the Boyz
    Masta Ace
    MC Shan
    Roxanne Shanté
    Tragedy


    Leaders of the New School - T.I.M.E. (The Inner Mind's Eye)
    reviewers didnt like it but it has a faithful cult following - much better than the well received debut i think - and Busta adds the icing to the cake...1993


    Lords of The Underground - Here Come the Lords
    kind of similar sound to LONS I think - that classic 93 feel

    On a very different tip, are you a fan of Antipop Consortium? Fluorescent Black is great for rhymes, Arryhthmia even better although more instrumental...

    Saw the title, and was coming on to recommend Roxane Shante's 'Bad Sister', but I see you've already got her in your list!

    only as a one-off track on that Marley Marl album ;)

    Which one? 'Have a Nice Day'? I think that was produced by Marley Marl.

    I (ashamedly only just) discovered Mr Scruff - Vibrate, which is a most excellent hip hop track.

    Have you heard Bo Marley - Masters of the Universe?

    Can you tell I'm not big on hip-hop? :D

    I couldn't get enough of Paris - "The Devil Made me do it" when I was 15. Having a good laugh at myself now, geeky white middle class banging out a "militant Black nationalist rapper" album :D



    And I also don't know if it's less well known, sorry, but I've never come across anyone else who was into him. Perhaps the chess club wasn't as cool as I 1st thought.

    I don't know if it is under known but none of my fellow hip hop heads had heard before I came in, spinning the disc like a don: Nate Dogg 'Ghetto Preacher'
