    I tend to consider hip-hop to be more musical than rap, but it's hardly my field of expertise.

    I am a big fan of hip hop. I will admit that I haven't heard much of the newer stuff (and rarely like it) but some artists that I like a lot are:

    - Binary Star

    - Atmosphere

    - CunninLynguists

    - Blackstar (Mos Def/Talib Kwali)

    - The Roots

    - Brother Ali

    There's a bunch more like the Flobots, Common, A Tribe Called Quest, De La Soul, Aesop Rock, MURS, Felt (MURS and Atmosphere), People Under the Stairs, Soul Position, and many many more.

    I will say that I like Kanye West (kinda) but I don't consider that Hip Hop, more in the 'Rap' category for me. For me (just a personal thing) Rap is mainstream on the radio/in the clubs. It is backed by a large label and has more emphasis on the rhythm with catchy hooks and beats. Conversely, I think of Hip Hop as more lyrical in nature where there is more thought put into the music.

    Wait, people like the Flobots? I always thought they were essentially universally reviled.

    I think I would've liked A Tribe Called Quest better if I'd heard them when I was younger. Hearing them when I did, it's hard to put up with the lackluster, sing-songy flow for the sake of generally fine lyrics, especially hearing the massive cloud of hype that surrounds them. I don't really dislike them or anything, but I also don't understand the massive parade of accolades heaped upon them.

    Overall I dislike most of the newer stuff, especially the "bling" and "club" rap
    I was a pretty huge fan of the genre quite a few years back mostly
    RZA/GZA/wutang in general (before the gravel pit and later stuff came out)
    Prince Paul
    Gangstarr

    and also some pretty aweswome french hiphop

    /edit links are dailymotion because as a german its pretty darn hard to get youtube links for music, our content industry would like to get an arbitrary amount of money from google and they said no ^^

    I adore Handlebars. When I first heard it I listened to it over and over, and I consider it to be one of the most superbly constructed pieces I've ever heard. I don't mind their other stuff, but it's sort of more rappy than I like. And my goodness are they preachy...

    You guys heard this Action Bronson/Alchemist mixtape yet? I liked the dude's earlier stuff including the mixtape he did with Party Supplies from earlier this year. Tomorrow morning I'll definitely be downloading it. If you guys wanna beat me to the punch here it is.

    I like the skate punk-esque album cover.
