    they're not really underground anymore but have you checked out Hieroglyphics, Blackstar, Talib Kweli, Common, Hi-Tek, etc

    i still love pharcyde for lyrics and beats but they're old now

    i listen to a lot of thr rhymesayers crew's older stuff

    one of their best emcees if you are looking for some seep lyrics is a guy named Atmosphere. fuckin incredible stuff.

    heiroglyphics are probably my most favorite boderline mainstream underground
    dialted peoples, jurassic 5 and the alkaholis are up there in the borderline mainstream category but still put out good conscious lyris witha posiitive attitude.

    MF Doom gets down to some grimey underground hip hop
    Check out Immotal Technique and Dead Prez for the same kinda sound

    my favorite emcee of all time has to be Aesop Rock. his delivery and rhyme patterns are so abstract its beautiful. he takes a little while to get used to but the creativity to me makes his shit very intriguing

    check out some tunes that my crew has been working on

    Atmosphere isn't a guy. It is Slug and Ant. Orginally they had a 3rd member aswell.

    I wasnt really feeling heiroglyphics, and Aesop rock was alright but I loved BlackStar because I already like Talib and Mos Def

    i just saw a Sage Francis show in Minneapolis @ the First Avenue Ballroom on the 17th.... amazing show... Sage doesnt look anything like what he sounds like.

    Slug (from Atmosphere) did a set (like 8 songs) which really made my night because im new to Sage but came to love underground hip hop with Slug and his old shit.

    some good tracks from slug:
    bodypillow
    woman with the tattooed hands
    shrapnel

    ...or anything off of the Overcast! album
