    Thaione's (pronounced like Taiwan the country) a new cat from Chi-town. The Midwest has been largely ignored by mainstream hip-hop, the underground is giving it a little recognition to the Midwest, but the scene's in Chicago, Minneapolis and Michigan are definately the best-kept secrets of the underground. Typical Cats, Athletic Mic League, Molemen and Blueprint are all on the up and up,hopefully they're get their dues soon.

    Here are some T. Davis clips for your listening pleasure.
