I'd say Funcrusher plus isn't in the 'most underrated' discussion IMO.

It was nice, I'll give you that, but I'm more of the wait and see when it comes to classic status. It has to be able to stand the test of time.

Here's some underrated hip hop albums- you can click on each album cover for a song from the album.

blu's album is overrated if anything.

'funcrusher plus' is a classic record: great beats, dope lyricism, unique vibe... it's no 'liquid swords', but it's better than all but a couple of the albums mentioned in this thread.

Never said it wasn't good. It's ranked pretty well by most hip hop enthusiasts.
