I just have to say this.  EVERY mainstream artist starts underground.  Anyone who says mainstream is bulls**t, is bulls**t, plain and simple.  My point is, no one can be mainstream without first being underground, and therefore, most people on this site are hypocrites.


Anyway the point  behind this post is that a lot of people have been hating on “mainstream” rappers, when all they are is an evolved format of you. Maybe not evolved in your mind, but evolved in the mind of the general public.  My point is, f**k everyone who says mainstream=conformists, because mainstream=money.

What separates Mainstream Hip-Hop from Underground Hip-Hop is not just the status, but also the atmosphere of the music in question. For example, ADP produces what will normally be looked at as Mainstream-orientated instrumentals, whereas Pikk produces what will normally be looked at as Underground-orientated instrumentals…

I myself do not “hate” on Mainstream Hip-Hop. However, I choose not to listen to it because most of the artists currently populating it don't have what I look for in a lyricist…I'm sure the same applies to most of the Underground Heads on this site. 

Also, regarding the whole, “Every rapper starts out Underground, so hating on them is hypocritical,” thing…Ace Hood & Drake weren't doing Underground music, got approached by their labels, and then out of nowhere switched their style. They were doing Mainstream music while Underground in order to catch the attention of labels.
