There is a lot of great stuff in this scene. Unfortunately it is a case of digging beneath all the garbage that sits on the surface. Hip Hop is not a huge favourite of mine but when a band hit's it stays hit. Give these a listen:

Mos Def
Black Star
Surreal and The Sound Providers
Dalek
The Strange Fruit Project
Roots Manuva
A Tribe Called Quest
Busdriver
The Roots
MF Doom
De La Soul
Marxman
Sage Francis
Count Bass D
Public Enemy

and let me know how you get on.

Do you like anything by Coldplay? I thought their new album was pretty awesome. Probably their best stuff yet.

Thanks, I'll be sure to check some of these guys out. Isn't Public Enemy the group with Flavor Flav in it?

Don't judge them too harshly by him. Before Flavor Flav became the world's biggest prat he actually made some very decent music. Anything before 1995 is classic. Fear of a Black Planet, He Got Game, It Takes A Nation Of Millions To Hold Us Back, they're all great.

Make sure to check out The Beastie Boys too. They're often disregarded as hip-hop artists because they were musicians (good ones, too), but they were among the biggest pioneers.

Have a listen to some Madvilian and raekwon

and well if you're willing to wade through all the horrible misogynistic thuggery of Wu-tang clan you'll find some pretty decent lo-fi hip hop and killer mcs in ODB Ghost face killah and RZA

I wasn't implying they were gangsta...just that if you disregard the bull**** (for example the intro to Method man) they make killer hip hop
