As the final hours of '09 tick away, it's nice to know that Notherground's hard work hasn't gone unnoticed. Yesterday, we announced that Outasight and The Kid Daytona had made the Top 10 Most Underrated list for the year, today, the love keeps spreading.
UPDATE: 6th Sense and Outasight are 2 Dope Boyz
You might've heard of a little site run by these dudes Shake and Meka, it's pretty ill, it's called 2DopeBoyz. You should check it out. If you do, you might see that BOTH of Outasight's mixtapes from '09 made the Top Mixtapes lists, the Outasight & D/Will collaboration The OutaWill Sessions got an honorable mention for Top EP of the year, and a handful of his tracks were chosen for the Top Songs category. 6th Sense gets nods for Emilio Rojas's tape and The New Classics among others. Get the full list here.
6th is 9th:
Pure Hip-Hop took a comprehensive look back at the year that was and picked out their top albums, mixtapes, artists, producers, and newcomers. They also put together a list of the top Ten Producers to Watch in 2010... Coming in at #9, none other than Notherground CEO 6th Sense (our homie Apple Juice Kid slipped in at the 10 spot, too).

Outasight, Not Out of Mind
One of the most prolific bloggers around and a man I have a lot of respect for, Dart Adams (of Poisonous Paragraphs and Bloggerhouse) finalized his list of the Top 50 Hip-Hop Albums, EP's & Mixtapes of 2009. Alongside projects by Cunninlynguists, KRS-One, Blue Scholars, Meth & Red, and People Under the Stairs, you can find Outasight's Further in the "Next 150" section. See the full list here.
