I am talking the good shiznizzle (hehe)
The Roots
Deltron 3030
Common
Mos Def
Rakim
Wu
Pharcyde
De La
Tribe
Cannibal Ox
Blackalicious
The Coup

Yep, but I listen to some commercial stuff as well. But no Master P crap.

Thinkers:
Roots, Mos Def, Dead Prez, Jungle Brothers, Camp Lo, Goodie Mob, Common.

Underground:
Atmosphere, Vontel, CinQue, Urban Legends, Bookie, Creeper Loco

Bouncers:
Nate Dogg, Ludacris,

Known, but good:
BIGGIE, Tupac, Slick Rick, Snoop, Dre, Easy,

Other:
Jayo-Felony, Ice-Cube, Jt. Money, House of Pain/Everlast,
Chino XL,

Then the R&B Hip Hop:
TQ, Dave Hollister, Avant, Ruff Endz, Transitions,

Anyway that's a few examples of what I like. Break it down the way you like.

I listen to most that you mentioned...though I don't care for Wu-Tang anymore. They reached their peak with Enter the 36 Chambers and the first round of solo albums and have been falling off steadily ever since. Also, QTip without Tribe does nothing for me at all. Some I like that you didn't mention...

Company Flow
Hieroglyphics
Quannum
Latyrx
Divine Styler
Jurassic 5

Probably going to get flamed for saying this but I think Eminem belongs in the "real" hip-hop category.

Also other people -

Phaorah Monch
Talib Kweli
Nas
Jay Z

Yeah, I listen to very little of that commercial crap... the most commercial I get is with OutKast. Most of my favorites are are already mentioned (Jurassic 5, Mos Def, Roots), but here are some others:

Rahzel (Part of the Roots, but this Human Beatbox released a great solo CD)

Gang Starr/Guru (Jazzmatazz is just brilliant)

Afu-Ra (Whirlwind Thru Cities... great song)

And I'm more offended by Jay-Z's presence in this thread than Eminem's...

True. He fell off after his second album. I can't believe cats still listen to him.

Lost Boyz are great, I was lucky enough to see them a few years ago in Phoenix with Redman.

Legal Drug Money is by far their best album. Mr. Cheeks has a solo album, you may want to check out if you haven't yet.

I think the new Q-Tip will open some eyes. His last one was pretty weak, but from what I've heard (maybe?) online from the new one, it'll be nice.

The Roots, BlackStar, Common, De La Soul, J-Live, J5, BEP and Dilated Peoples are some of my favorites.

I honestly cried when i heard about freaky tah

I think you mean "white-boy rap." Del is about as nerdy as they come.

Oh, and Atmosphere is Slug (MC wise).

Oh ****, slug=Atmosphere? Well there you go.

And no, i DO mean nerd rap.

Vanilla Ice and Eminem are both white boys, not in the same category.Del is a nerd but i wouldnt call him nerd rap (i LOVE del by the way).

Nerd rap isnt meant to be an insult, just a style.

The new Q-Tip was absolutely atrocious. I love the new Blackalicious "Blazing Arrow" though. Anybody ever listen to Killah Priest?

Antipop Consortium

I have to qualify this and say I've never been into hip-hop at all. I'm more into indie pop, electronica and postrock stuff. Antipop Consortium combine all those styles with an experimental sound that I found incredible. Voices as instruments, orchestral samples, IDM beats and twitches and literate, multi-layered lyrics. They're from the underground hip-hop scene in NYC from what I've read.

I highly recommend their new CD, Arrhythmia, on the Warp label.
