Number 36: MF Doom

Ever since Kanye brought a touch of Back Packer class to hip hop and Outkast decided to bust open the musical parameters a bunch, the underground's been coasting. Coasting on mainstream baiting and unlistenable preachy records. Not Doom though. Doom decided at some point to just spill the wittiest, wrongest, most bananas rhymes he could cook up in his metal coated dome. He's now the most respected and prolific MC in the underground and everyone who's anyone is trying to work with him. New albums with Dangerdoom and Madlib will keep his feet on the ground as colaborations with Ghostface begin to flaunt the man in the mask in front of the Vibe Magazine set. It's hard to imagine how the mainstream will react to Magilla Gorilla references and poorly spoken Italian not to mention a high quotiant of "Egads" and "Gee Wilikers," how shit goes down from here is for sure one of the most interesting developments in the hip hop pipe line.
