None of these guys are "good" excluding Eyedea and Eminem, who i don't even like.

Fans of Sage Francis are as impressionable as people who believe anything Micheal Moore makes. Oh my god he's rapping about emotions, it has to be good!

I just really don't like that dude.

Sage Francis is an acquired taste. How can you not like R.A. The Rugged Man?

I'd like to add Apathy to that list.
And start a list of great Hispanic rappers off with Celph Titled.

Have a mix of both:

I agree that he kind of falls into the wannabe conscious poet rappers (somewhat), but he gets points in my book for being original and unique. I don't like his delivery as much as his content.

i don't know but offshore, i mean here in the Philippines, there's not a single white rapper that is known except for Eminem. The rest of them are blacks.
