The Knux are pretty... not good. As far as unknowns in rap go though, Micah James is god-tier (which is a shame he isn't more popular):

His only mixtape, "Agoraphobia" is free and what I'd consider a masterpiece that approximately twenty people will ever hear. Take the cool introspection of Mos Def, crank it up to eleven, and then add in some social-awareness combined with his impeccable rhyme scheme, dense yet free-flowing in it's deliverance and you have a basic image of what listening to him sounds like. Did I mention that this was from just a free mixtape?

Rap rarely gets much better than this.

My friend actually got me to listen to the Knux, but they're just alright. it's a good song for sure though.

here's Autumn's Review, they're a local band in small town montana. they're not too bad if you like emo rockish stuff: http://www.myspace.com/autumnsreview sorry I couldn't get a video, they only have them uploaded on myspace (and don't judge they're shitty myspace layout lol)

The Suit (formerly Midnight Suit) is an amazing hardcore band out of North Dakota that have been overlooked for far too long.
