I like Brother Ali and Aesop Rock, although honestly I haven't heard either of them for like 5 years. Music is dead right now and has been that way for a good 10 years. Top 40 Hip/Hop garbage has taken over and 99% of it involves no talent. Just a few mixers, some auto-tune and Talk Box and you have a hit record. What a joke... thanks RIAA.

Remember back when musicians knew how to play instruments?... Yeah me neither... been a while.

I'll admit, the only artist/group I've heard that aren't what the OP mentioned not counting (and even then I've never heard anything by Lil Wayne or Waka Flocka, and I'm sure everyone's heard that one damn song by Soulja Boy >.< - Seriously, it was played over a friggin PA at my cousins Elementary School during some summer special thing, and I sh** you not, little 6 year old girls were jumping around to that!), is Gang Starr.

They did some really good music in my opinion. The interesting thing though, it was GTA: San Andreas that got me into them.

I have heard a song or two by Eminem and ICP, but I'll admit, I don't like either.
Hopsin and Lupe Fiasco are both really good.

i been listing to this song all day to the point I got in contact with my old high school buddy it brings me so much. here is the song
