UNDERGROUND HIP HOP is an umbrella term for hip hop music outside the general commercial canon. It is typically associated with independent artists , signed to independent labels or no label at all. Underground hip hop is often characterized by socially conscious , positive, or anti-commercial lyrics. However, there is no unifying or universal theme – AllMusic suggests that it "has no sonic signifiers". "The Underground" also refers to the community of musicians, fans and others that support non-commercial, or independent music . Music scenes with strong ties to underground hip hop include alternative hip hop and conscious hip hop . Many artists who are considered "underground" today were not always so, and may have previously broken the Billboard charts . To gain fans, underground artists perform locally and worldwide, make tours, and meet and greets. Their performances are held anywhere, such as outdoors or in restaurants
