Old School Rap - The Original Mix
Old School Rap is the style of the very first rap artists who emerged in the 1970s and 80s. Old school is easily identified by its relatively simple raps -- most lines take up approximately equal amounts of time, and the rhythms of the language rarely twisted around the beats of the song.

Underground Hip Hop
Underground Rap is hardcore lyrical Hip Hop that pushes musical boundaries and has lyrics that are more inventive than gangsta clichés. It has little regard for mainstream conventions, and celebrates its independent off-the-chain status. With lyrics that are often explicit, this music is not for the timid or naive.
