I defnitely agree, Digable Planets were one of the first groups to experiment with the jazzy hip-hop sound they're the predecessors to A Tribe Called Quest and pretty much the rest of the Native Tongues Posse.

Rezz: I see what you mean, but I was just trying to make a point. Sorry if it came off a bit brashly.

You've got to be kidding, at least 3 of the artists on your list are some of the bigger names in hip hop today, hardly unknown.

Mos Def is very, very well known, underground or otherwise. None of the people he mentioned are really nobodies, even Kids.
