Pharoahe Monch and Wu-tang clan have music that is not bombarded with commercial material yet sell heaps

A twenty-first century marketing buzz word used to convince teens that the over-hyped, over-produced, corporate-friendly crap they listen to on the radio station everday is actually "unique, hip, different" or that they somehow aren't part of a target market in which they all obediently buy the same crap.
Yeah, that hot new underground rapper made his debut on TRL today.

Also called the UG. A message board forum for MMA (Mixed Martial Arts) fans and fighters. Members often refer to themselves as UG'ers. Contains many UFC and PrideFC elitists/nuthuggers that hate TUF noobs(new fans due to The Ultimate Fighter Reality show). Members tend to belittle others for liking certian fighters, or for not knowing who certain figters are.
There are different levels of access to the forum, a free or MUDNAMER account and a Pro account(blue, green, red name)which costs $$.
Mudmaners usually get shit on by the Pro UG'ers for not buying a name (forum namism if ya ask me).

Ban this mudnamer, The UnderGround doesnt need anymore TUF noobs.

Someone who is similar to or even better than the top dogs and has the power to be influential, yet is very underrated.
All the way up until he became mainstream with his "?" album, XXXTENTACION was an Underground King.
