MOVITS!
MOVITS! Now on iTunes/Amazon! on MySpace Music - Free Streaming MP3s, Pictures & Music Downloads

EDIT: couldn't get the damn youtube embed to work.

I normally hate rap, but I love Movits. I guess they're more of like jazz/swing/rap, but whatever. I bought their album today and I'm loving it. The music in the background actually has some composition to it instead of just a single beat being played under some lame samples like radio-rap.
They were on the Colbert Report the other night.

My favorites are the Death Row era, so Ice Cube, Dre, and Snoop are obvious. Past that, Busta Rhymes' 'When Disaster Strikes' is amazing, his first few records were.

DMX. Eminems first two records (What the .... happened after that, Marshal?) Public Enemy of course. Buck 65's early work was great for a white canadian.

Incidentally, did you know that every pope since 1054 has actually been two badgers one on top of the others shoulders? This is my opinion, but I'm on the internet so I'm stating it as fact... - MR. S

And there's always bum fights out there. Especially involving "wheels", the guy with no legs who holds the sign "give me money or I'll kick you in the face" or the ever popular "will dance for money". - Ibz rg

I'm mostly into the older-type stuff, I'm just a bigger fan of it personally. So for that type, I'll recommend A Tribe Called Quest (The Low End Theory), De La Soul (3 Feet High and Rising), Ghostface Killah (get Supreme Clientele and Fishscales), GZA (get Liquid Swords), Madlib (Shades of Blue), Madvillian (Madvillainy), MF Doom (MM.. Food), Mos Def (Black on Both Sides), The Roots (Do You Want More?!?!?!!, Illadelph Halflife, and Things Fall Apart), Nas (Illmatic) and The Wu-Tang Clan (36 Chambers).

If you're into newer stuff, Doomtree, Deltron 3030, Del Tha Funkee Homosapien, P.O.S., Immortal Technique, Copywrite, CunninLynguists are particularly good.

Notorious BIG - Life After Death
Eminem's first 2 albums
Anything by Mystikal ( he had a few albums out already before he got big )

Also, check out Lil Wayne's 3rd mixtape, Da Drought 3. It's all freestyle and I like it a lot better personally than his commercial .....

Jedi Mind Tricks has been the only group that i have ever heard and been impressed.
Thats is the only recomendation i can give.

I think Rap is way to full of trash to really care about.

...cool
