The Most Underrated Individual Rappers

This is my first blog for the year 2010.
My favourite genre of popular music is Hip Hop! I just love it! Nothing like a good hip hop tune to ease you or get you in the mood!
Still, I've been thinking about the good rappers that don't get the props they deserve!
The one's that are unappreciated, even though they have mad skillz!

Here's who I think are the most underrated rappers (in random order):
1. Memphis Bleek
2. Heavy D
3. Jaz O/Big Jas/The Jas
4. Abdominal - A Canadian rapper
5. Xzibit
6. Lord Finesse from D.I.T.C.
7. Grand Puba from Brand Nubian
8. Chip Fu from the FU Schnickens
9. AZ
10. Marcelo D2 - A Brazilian Rapper
11. MC Serch
12. Chubb Rock
13. Prince Po from Organized Konfusion
14. Akil from Jurassic 5!
15. The D.O.C.

There's more but I think you get the idea!
Who do you guys feel is underrated in the Hip Hop Game!?

Inspectah Deck from Wu-Tang Clan is way underrated.

Because his voice isn't as distinctive in tone as the better known Clan guys, and his style isn't as unique, a lot of casual fans would struggle to remember him as one of the key members. But he consistently spits hot fire.

When you first listen to "Enter the 36 Chambers", guys like Meth and ODB are the ones who standout because they are so different to everyone you've heard before. But the more you listen, it becomes obvious that Inspectah Deck's verses are among the very best. His verse on C.R.E.A.M. is probably the best verse by any Wu-Tang member ever.
