    Del the Funky Homosapien, Aceyalone, Blackalicious

    BQ: Underground, if you count the above acts as underground.

    BQ2: Probably about 20% tbh. I'm more of an East Coast kind of guy.

    EDIT: But since I'm from Australia, I'm really not that great with American geography. If you asked me a quiz about whether rappers were from the 'East coast' or 'West coast', I probably wouldn't do as well as many of those here from the US. I know generally where stuff is, but not in detail.

    Souls of Mischief

    Blackalicious

    BQ: Underground, I prefer stuff like Hiero, Gift of Gab, Murs & Zion I over the likes of NWA, 2Pac & Dre that are usually mentioned when people think of west coast hip-hop.

    BQ2: maybe around 30-40%, I listen to more east coast overall

    Pharcyde, Snoop Doggy Dogg, & Digital Underground.

    BQ: Ehhhh, underground I guess. I love me some Tone Loc also. Really depends on the day.

    BQ2: 25% of the time. I'm an East Coast man. Grew up on the East, lived in the East, & I'll die in the East. Mad respect to the West though. I just gotta stick to my roots.
