Ok, so, since like 99-00 i've lost touch w/hip hop....and seeing rap city as my only real gauge of the state of hip hop for the past 8-9 years, i've missed out on some really dope music....

i mean, it forced me to discover other music...got into more soul, old jazz, some decent rock...whatever....sometimes i'm like damn i wish i had some NEW hip hop to bump....but where is it?

So gimme a list....and try to hit me with artists i may not have heard before....

gimme your top 10....albums, mixtapes, rappers to look for...links whatever...

i NEED some new music..


btw, i'm more into lyricism than anything else...hollatme


thanks in advance.

Atmosphere
Talib Kweli/ Mos Def/ Blackstar
Cassidy (check his mixtapes out, especially "Brotherly Love" with Fabulous)
Freeway
Gillie Da Kid
Asher Roth
Andre Nickatina
Common
MF Doom and everyone else on Stones Throw (Madlib, Lord Quas, Lootpack, etc.)
Papoose
Wu-Tang never dissapoints

Those are the artists that come up the most often on my iPod. I enjoy lyricism too so most of them are pretty strong lyrically. Keep your eyes open for Asher Roth, he's different for sure.

if you're not familiar with Joe Budden, I suggest you download Mood Musik vol 2, then Mood Musik Vol 3, then 1. He is definitely a lyricist, one of the most underrated in my eyes.

some good tracks on his debut self titled album would be... 10 Mins, Walk With Me, Calm Down, classic tracks

www.agentspits.com/joe-budden-who-killed-hip-hop-full-lyrics/
^ Who Killed Hip Hop is another crazy track he put out this year

and he just put out a new cd titled Halfway House that is worth checking out once you've got more familiar with his work.

top 10 of this generation as in post-2000? Some I would have included based on their work in their 90s would not be included because of the quality/relevance of their craft in the context of this decade...

1. Andre 3000
2. Lil Wayne
3. TI
4. Jay-Z
5. Big Boi
6. MF Doom
7. Young Jeezy
8. Kanye West
9. 50 Cent

Check out Little Vic. I randomly found him sometime last year and been a big fan since.

I'm kinda surprised no one named DMX, he had 5 straight #1 albums around this time (1998-2003). My list and their best album:

#1. OutKast: The Love Below/Speakerboxxx (2003)
#1. Eminem: The Marshall Mathers LP (2000)
#2. Kanye West: The College Dropout (2004)
#3. Jay Z: The Blueprint (2001)
#4. Common: BE (2005)
#5. Lupe Fiasco: Food & Liquor (2006)
#6. Lil Wayne: Tha Carter II (2005)
#7. Atmosphere: You Can't Imagine How Much...(2005)
#8. 50 Cent: Get Rich or Die Tryin (2003)
#9. Clipse: Lord Willin' (2002)

I think its impossible to deny the top 4's influence in this decade, and IMO, these are the best albums we've seen from this era. So, download these if you don't have them and you'll be good.

I like how you didnt include DMX either...
But Common-Be and Lupe-The cool are definitely the best "ungangsta" rap ever~
