    Boldy James is not your average drug-talking and dealing rapper. It shows in his musical output, from his above par beat selection, to his descriptive and almost eloquent rhymes, Boldy is far from average. The Detroit player first surfaced on the rap scene with his very dope and album-quality mixtape, Trapper's Alley: Pro's & Con's and while he's had a slow rise, he's definitely built a solid...

    As November fast approaches, we're all getting excited to hear Eminem's come-back (we hope) on MMLPII on November 5th. However, October 15th was also an important day for hip-hop, with three of the most dope and underrated emcees all dropping records: Boldy James, Dom Kennedy, and Black Milk. Dom Kennedy is sort of making his way out of that underrated category, with Get Home Safely receiving...

    Jay-Z basically dominated the web this past week with the release of Magna Carta Holy Grail and all the interviews and promo that followed. Music-wise, there wasn't much else too major, with releases from the usual suspects like Juicy J and Ace Hood, and even Cory Gunz and Joey Bada$$. While those songs have definitely not been overlooked this past week, Underrated Audio brings you four tracks...

    We have two new-comers to Charts Don't Lie this week, who come from opposite ends of the spectrum- Robin Thicke and Tech N9ne. Both artists had impressive debuts, with Thicke earning a #1 debut for the first time, and Tech N9ne earning his chart peak as well. Independent labels may just be the way of the future, as Mac Miller and Tech (and others) have proved again and again how they can do it...

    This week's unintentional theme for Underrated Audio seems to be dark and trippy tracks-- from Jarren Benton spitting craziness, Don Trip giving us mellowed out and dark bars, and the Flatbush Zombies delivering drug-addled rhymes, all bases were covered in either department. Check out those three tracks, as well as two more that are on the lighter side, by clicking through the gallery...

    Dizzy Wright was recently crowned a 2013 XXL Freshmen (by the people's vote, nonetheless), which is sure to make his stock in the rap game rise. However, he's as humble and as hard-working as ever. This is evident on his new track, "Maintain," which offers support for people and their every-day struggles, instead of glamorizing hard times, as rap can do.We called upon Dizzy Wright and...
