Default The Rap & Hip-Hop Recommendation Thread

I'm trying to find more bands like these that actually have a meaning, nothing about cars and girls and new commercialized stuff. Any ideas are welcome. Thanks

The Roots, Common, Nas, Mos Def would be good starting points. My advice would be to use Rate Your Music, allmusic.com or last.fm, and search for Conscious Hip-Hop.

I'm just gonna ignore the "not about cars and bling" comment cause i've heard it a million times now and its BS.

Any who, groups like those you mentioned
Digable Planets
KMD
Pete Rock
Fugees
Rakim
Black Sheep

How about now?... it's such an awesome song. I listened to it probably 10 times in your post already. I wants more.

I realize what I'm about to say has nothing to do with the actual OP but I wasn't aware that you had this kind of HipHop under your belt and I need you to let me know how much of this you have and how much ass I have to kiss to get it.

Definitely check out Digable planets like previously stated, Reachin' is a good start.
Some of Cypress Hill's stuff is kind of similar to De La Soul.

ask here next time:
