Hey guys! I wouldn’t exactly call myself an expect on Hip Hop / K-pop so I’m all for learning new terms. (*¯ ³¯*)♡
I heard this term being thrown around a lot and finally decided to search it up and see what it meant.
“Underground hip hop is an umbrella term for hip hop music outside the general commercial canon. It is typically associated with independent artists, signed to independent labels or no label at all. Underground hip hop is often characterized by socially conscious, positive, or anti-commercial lyrics.”
