I'm actually liking more of Chance's stuff the more I listen to it. Something about his voice still pisses me off though.

I reaaaalllyyy don't listen to enough rap to be honest, & I don't even know tf I like yet really. The rap I've got in my library so far is some Wu Tang (but the only album I have is 36 Chambers), Childish Gambino, Atmosphere, Aesop Rock and some OFWGKTA. So I guess I err on the side of more indie rap. I like clever wordplay and pop culture references. And Drake's soft-ass, too, of course.

It'd be dope to hear some stuff from female rappers too, if anyone can recommend some.

I got this song lined up to play in plug soon from Snow Tha Product. She's on Strange Music label(Tech N9ne's if you didn't know)




I'm pretty sure you may know K Flay already but I like this song from her EP two years ago.


Nitty Scott


Also I agree with you on Chance's voice and the whole "nananana" thing.

Lauren Hill is one of the best rappers. Not easy listening.



She has more to say in twenty seconds than many records/discographies

Default Finding New Hip Hop

Hey, I'm a big hip hop enthusiast and I've been having trouble finding good new music. Obviously hip-hop is a massive genre, but I wouldn't mind some suggestions. If you guys could list some artists/groups you think are worth checking out that would be fantastic. I enjoy hip-hop from any time period, so feel free to recommend old school stuff too.

Here is a list of artists/groups I listen to regularly, so you know what I've heard and incase you're also looking to expand your library. There are quite a few artists in my library missing from this list, but not ones I listen to often. Thanks!

Aceyalone, Alpha Singh, Atmosphere, Audio Two, Beastie Boys, Big Daddy Kane, Big L, Big Pun, Bigg Bump, Biz Markie, Black Sheep, Blackstar, Blu & Exile, Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, Bow Wow, Brand Nubian, Brother Ali, Captain Steez, Captain Murphy, Cassidy, Chance the Rapper, Chiddy Bang, Chief Kamachi, Childish Gambino, Coolio, Craig Mack, Crooklyn Dodgers 95, Cypress Hill, Czarface, D-Pryde, The D.O.C., D12, Damian Marley, Danny Brown, Das EFX, De La Soul, Dead Prez, Digable Planets, Doomtree, Drake, Dr. Dre, Eminem, Eric B. & Rakim, Eyedea & Abilities, The Fugees, Funky 4+1, Gang Starr, Grandmaster Flash, Grieves, Grits, GZA, Heiruspecs, Hoodie Allen, Ice Cube, Immortal Technique, Jay-Z, Joey Bada$$, Kid Cudi, Kid Ink, KMD, Kool G Rap, Kurtis Blow, Lauryn Hill, Living Legends, Lupe Fiasco, Mac Miller, Machine Gun Kelly, Macklemore, Madlib, Madvillain, Marley Marl, MF Doom, Mobb Deep, Mos Def, N.W.A., Nas, Notorious B.I.G., Odd Future, Outkast, P.O.S., Pete Rock, Pharcyde, Public Enemy, Pusha T, Raekwon, Rob Base, The Roots, Run the Jewels, Run-DMC, Salt-N-Pepa, Shad, Snoop Dogg, The Sugar Hill Gang, Surreal and the Sound Providers, Talib Kweli, Tech N9ne, A Tribe Called Quest, Twista, Tyga, Tyler the Creator, Waldo, Will Smith, Wu-Tang Clan, Young MC, 2Pac, 9th Wonder, 50 Cent

If you're looking for conscious hip-hop, I'd like to put forward my own group for consideration: MODAL.
Lyrically, it is always saying something, whether it be social critique or just generally uplifting.
Check it out if it's what you're feeling! It's on iTunes and bandcamp, and look up "MODAL at the Parish Underground" on Youtube.

I recommend Knowmads if you like lyrical content and real talk in your music. All there songs are awesome but I particularly enjoy the following:
The boat can leave now
one
payback
The Pain

Its hard to find there music on yourtube but every album is on Spotify
