Some of you might have seen George Watsky's video on youtube (Pale Kid Raps Fast) that blew up a while ago. I was checking out some of his other stuff and it's not half bad. He was a poet, so his lyrics are pretty good.

Hmm, I miss the hip hop style of the 90's. It's more methodical and sturdy.

DUDE!!! That's some list. Though I'm pretty wrapped that someone took the time to bombard my request with this many suggestions. I have only managed to check out three of dj chameleon recommendations. DANGER DOOM- Mouse & Mask-2005 (is a fun album), CLIPSE- Til The Caskets Drops-2009 (while not part of my usual preference had a certain appeal to it) and CHAMILLIONAIRE- Ultimate Victory-2007 (suprisingly good due to the direction the artist chose to take with this album).

Many thanks for the recommendation list, which will most likely take a weekend of dedicated listening. Also I would like to make a recommendation of my own. Anyone with spare time should check out OUTERLIMITZ- Suicide Prevention(2005). I think it's a slept on album but it's definetly a treat.
