Overlooked Hip Hop Q1 2014

Everybody knows Freddie Gibbs, Schoolboy Q, Isaiah Rashad, Rick Ross, CunninLynguists albums are dope. Check these out too.
1Ratking
So It Goes


Technically Q2 but this is too dope not to include. Sporting Life is a dope producer and Wiki can rap his ass off.
2The Doppelgangaz
Peace Kehd


If you're still sleeping on The Doppelgangaz right now, stop. These dudes are the best and most consistent hip hop duo in a really long time. They release at least one album's worth of material a year and usually it ends up in my top 10 or top 5 of the year
3 Dag Savage
E&J


Surprised to see there's not even an artist page for these guys yet. I should fix that. Exile producing and Johaz rapping. It's like a sister album to Blu's Below the Heavens and Fashawn's Boy Meets World
4Lakutis
3 Seashells


After years of anticipation after hearing Lakutis rap on Das Racist's mixtapes, Lakutis releases this and it does not disappoint. If you need convincing, he's basically a white Danny Brown.
5Kevin Gates
By Any Means


I'm not sure how this dude hasn't blown up yet. He's kinda like Future/Rich Homie Quan but much more solid lyrically. Love his gravelly voice.
6 Homeboy Sandman
White Sands


Need to make a page for this one too. Homeboy Sandman has a really nice run of EP's going on right now and he's one of my favorites in the past few years. Beats are all done by Paul White, who's most notable for producing with Danny Brown.
7Prince Po
Animal Serum


This album is gonna be overshadowed by Prince Po's former groupmate Pharoahe Monch, but this album should be checked out if you want to hear an underrated veteran rap over some really nice Oh No beats.
8Smoke DZA
Dream.Zone.Achieve


As far as weed rap goes, Smoke DZA is somewhere between being as good as Curren$y and being as mediocre as Wiz Khalifa. This album is mostly the former, but it should not be 21 tracks. Worth checking out though.
9Cyhi Da Prynce
Black Hystori Project


This is the first Cyhi tape to really showcase the dude's talent. Other tapes have their moments but aren't as consistent as this one. Hopefully this release will escalate him to a higher status than "That other rapper on GOOD Music that's not Ye, Pusha, or Big Sean."
10Step Brothers
Lord Steppington


The Alchemist continues his winning production streak with a really nice album with Evidence.
11Black Milk
Glitches in the Break


This is just B-sides from Black Milk's brilliant album from last year, but it's still definitely worth checking out.
12L'Orange
The Orchid Days


This is mostly a showcase of soulful instrumentals from L'Orange, but there are some cool verses from Homeboy Sandman, Blu, Jeremiah Jae, and Billy Woods.
13 Verbal Kent
Sound of the Weapon


Another artist I need to make an artist page for. He was part of the group Ugly Heroes with Apollo Brown and Red Pill and they released one of the most overlooked hip hop records of last year. Not as strong as Ugly Heroes, but this is cool nonetheless.
