Cause if you are, I got some obscure groups you should definitely cop.
Number 1 is Cyne
. They're a Floridian four-piece consisting of two emcees and two producers. It's hot shit that's unlike a lot of other stuff out there, and that's including the so-called 'underground.' While they can be political like Immortal Technique
they have a far more philosophical flow that's reminiscent of the EARLY days of hip-hop. The beats remind me of the layered genius in much of Kno
's work for CunninLynguists
. It's hard to get ahold of their shit tho, so if anyone is feeling em then hit me up via AIM. It shouldn't take a genius to figure out what my name is on it.
Number 2 is Optyma
. I've had the pleasure of getting smoked out by this guy and he's one of the most humble and intelligent emcees/beatmasters out there. Just to get some hits I'll say he's like RJD2
but of course he's much more like himself. Plus you can get all of his music for free, what more can you ask?
