    Artists signed on independent labels are "underground" compared to Eminem, Chingy, Fabolous or Kanye anyway, but I can see your point, but the word 'underground' can be used as an adjective too.

    I think that atleast snoop dogg, jay-z and K. West of those mentioned are very good lyricists, even compared to nas, 2pac, biggie or dre.
    Rap music has changed a lot in the process of becoming mainstream and popular. It's true that artists like g-unit, fabolous, lil'wayne and many others can be categorized to pop-music as well as rap.

    It's not common to tell details about your personal life in songs that are in heavy radio rotation and mainstream radio stations aren't often eager to play such tracks.

    and people shouldn't really be so hypocrite in their taste of music. If 50 cent or Jay-Z were on independent labels and not very widely recongized / known by everyone, but the music was the same, people who were listening to them anyway for some reason would be thinking "HOT DAMN THIS IS THE HOTTEST UNDERGROUND STUFF YEAH! I'VE GOT THE MOST SOPHISTICATED TASTE OF MUSIC EVER YO!"

    "peace out" (H)
