Default Strange Time Signatures In Hip Hop

I'm doing an assignment for uni & I need some examples of hip hop songs with strange time signatures (anything other than 4/4 is strange for hip hop).

I know Underground by Eminem off Relapse is 7/8 or something like that, It's really cool.

Anyone know of any others?

TONS of hip hop songs nowadays seem to be in 6/8 time. It seems like the new fad.

Lol, it's really hard to count the time in a song that's rapped like that. I couldn't do it at all.

I'm not too good at working out time signatures, but Humble Mumble by Outkast might not be 4/4.

EDIT: Also, Toilet Tisha is 3/4 (waltz) time.

Can you point me in the direction of a few songs with 6/8?

I've never got the hang of figuring out time signatures. But I'm fairly confident in pointing you towards Company Flow.
