Top 11 actual underground rap songs that are lyrically amazing

#1 John Waltz – Bang

John Waltz - Bang
John Waltz – Bang
Lyrically this is the weakest song on the list, but it’s very catchy and more typical of main stream hip hop. Still it’s about violence and love, a great song altogether

#2 Murs – Everything

Murs - Everything
Murs – Everything

A very self reflective song, a great uplifting message paired with smooth lyrics and a strong beat. A lot of quotable lines here. Honorable mention: Have A Nice Life

#3 Atmosphere – The Girl with the Tattooed Hands

Atmosphere - The Girl with the Tattooed Hands
Atmosphere – The Girl with the Tattooed Hands

Any hip hop fan should have come across Atmosphere at some point. This song is one of my favorites, pure rhythm and poetry. Every time I listen to it I pick up something I missed. Honorable mention: Yesterday. The song yesterday makes me tear up every time. After the first listen you’ll immediately want to run it back one more time. Listen to it and you’ll understand why.

#4 Immortal Technique – Dance with the Devil

Immortal Technique - Dance with the Devil
Immortal Technique – Dance with the Devil

Warning! This song will fuck you up, i guarantee it. Very dark and depressing. The less I say the better. See for yourself.

#5 Logic – Lost one

Logic - Lost one
Logic – Lost one

This is not the Logic most of you are familiar with, an entirely different artist. Rapper from the U.K. With an awesome sound. Love his lyrics and his style. A song about moving past an ex. Quotable as well.

#6 Madchild – Painful Skies

Madchild - Painful Skies
Madchild – Painful Skies

This dude shits on all your preconceived notions about Canadians. Has some of the filthiest songs around. However this track is the polar opposite. One of the catchiest songs on the list. Also a song that is very real and authentic. About changing and growing. Honorable mention: Slut (if you want to hear his other half)

#7 Eyedea & Abilities – Burn Fetish

Eyedea & Abilities - Burn Fetish
Eyedea & Abilities – Burn Fetish

My favorite song on the list. Easily some of the best lyrics you will ever here. Unfortunately Eyedea, the rapper half of the duo, died tragically of an overdose, although he predicted as much in his lyrics. I really can’t recommend this song enough and the band as well. Honorable mention: Perfect Medicine

#8 Trae the Truth – Children of Men

Trae the Truth - Children of Men
Trae the Truth – Children of Men

Trae isn’t so much underground anymore although is also not very well known. This song features J. Cole and should have been a massive hit. Talks about poverty and it leading to gang violence.

#9 Killer Mike- Reagan

Killer Mike- Reagan
Killer Mike- Reagan

A lot of Bernie fans will know who Killer Mike is, this song shows his politically conscious views far before he supported Bernie. Had to listen to this a few times to catch all the lyrics, very interesting to hear no matter what your political standings. Honorable mention: his band Run the Jewels – Blockbuster Night Part 1

#10 Aesop Rock – None Shall Pass

Aesop Rock - None Shall Pass
Aesop Rock – None Shall Pass

A lot of people say his lyrics are indecipherable, but I find that completely untrue. Easily one of the smartest rappers of all time, his songs mostly require lyrics sheets and a lot of listening to understand his deep metaphors. Very worth it. A one of a kind lyricist, literally. Honorable mention: Daylight

#11 The movie Moon

The movie Moon
The movie Moon
Well since I see this on every post I figured i might as well toss it in here to appease the Imgur gods.
