I am very dissapointed that DUB/REGGAE/CUT N PASTE is not mentioned more in this genre-it is virtually the catalyst for rap/hip hop-bar none!

something about d.i.t.c. (showbiz & a.g., big l, lord finesse, o.c., etc)
dipset (cam'ron, juelz, j.r., rell, jones, etc) and d-block (styles, jada, hood) on the modern side. lil wayne as a solo artist too
london **** SLICK RICK. and current grime and dubstep stuff
i dunno, maybe some of that, i could go on but for what it is, that write up covers most of it. nice

You forgot LL Cool J. Definitely an important part of the early sound, at least in the 'New School' Def Jam stage of the movement.

because its f*cking great?
lyrically, musically. the raw emotion and social consciousness in rap music is what draws me to it.

political rock/folk is eh. some of it is really good, but most of it is cheesy and overdone.
political/socially conscious rap music is a match made in heaven.

Also,
"West Coast" and Ice T were not pioneers. They were just the first to get popular. And Ice T was more famous for his hardocre punk band than his rapping.
