[Hip/Hop] 100 Bars of Death- Ya Boy

Ya Boy is a rapper out of the Bay Area that I feel is very underrated. I have heard many artist, but Ya Boy is one of the only one who constantly has sick verses and continues to spit rhymes that I have to rewind and repeat because they are so dope. Even though Ya Boy is more of a small time rapper out of the Bay, he is definitely one of the best rappers I have heard, and this song is his way of backing that up.

[Rock] Breath- Breaking Benjamin

Breaking Benjamin, an American rock group out of Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, is a group that I really enjoy listening to. A couple of years ago, I started listening to groups such as Avenged Sevenfold, Linkin Park, Rise Against, and while searching these types of groups, I discovered Breaking Benjamin. Now over the years as I have listened to new music throughout all genres, this song is still a favorite of mine.

[Electronica] Scary Monster and Nice Spirits- Skrillex

Skrillex, real name Sonny Moore, is a music produces out of Los Angeles, California. When talking about new electonica/dubstep music, Skrillex is one of the bigger names that everyone has heard of. I have quite a few of his songs on my iTunes, but had never really listened to this song before until the other day. I played it over multiple times and have been listening to it constantly the last few days. It is a very chill song that is good to listen to no matter what music your in the mood for.

[Rock] Giants Among Common Men- Jamie's Elsewhere

This band is a rock band started out of Sacramento, California. Now I had never really heard of this group before, but I stumbled upon this song one day and was instantly hooked. I am not normally into screamo music, but this song makes up for it. Even though there is quite a bit of screaming in this song, I really like the vocals in between all of that and have really come to like the song as a whole. If you like rock music, I feel like you will really enjoy this song.

[Hip/Hop] Godzilla- Army of the Pharaohs

Army of the Pharaohs, a group composed of Vinnie Paz, Chief Kamachi, Esoteric, Virtuoso and Bahamadia, is group that has consistently good songs. I have listen to almost every one of their songs, and can honestly say they dont have any bad music. They are dope group that I believe to be one of the best underground rap groups in existence. This song in particular really caught my attention with its sick opening, with great verses in there as well. If you like this song, check out more of their stuff, cause its all raw.

[Hip/Hop] Renegade- Eminem & Jay-Z

This is my first blog post on a blog I should have made weeks ago... Anyways this blog is an extension on a senior project for the woodside priory school. In this project, my two friends and I decided to make a website to bring attention to underground music and genres that people would otherwise not listen to. We had initially planned to make one central site with individual pages, but when complications arose, we decided a blog format would be much easier to finish with. With my blog I plan to post form almost every genre. My main focus will be Hip/Hop and Rap, but will branch out into other genres as well. K, I know this song isn't actually and underground song, it is still my all time favorite song. It is a chill song all around, and every verse is equally as dope as the next.
