Rap/hip-hop song suggestions please...as many as you can.

I've never really listened to much of this music and just saw the movie Blue Crush.

I got the soundtrack and there were song by N.E.R.D (Rock Star)and songs featured in the movie by POD which, I guess, is Rock mixed with hip-hop.

I do not live in a place where there is much in the way of this type of music on the radio, so could all of you that read this please list some songs and who sings them to help me get to hear more? It's infectious and I only have a few songs that I play over and over again.

If you know the 2 songs that I listed, maybe that would help you with suggestions. I really don't think I'd be into the hard core stuff with lots of overly violent themes though. I do know of Eminem (I'm not that clueless) and I plan to listen to more of his stuff soon, but I don't even know where to begin after him, so any help would be very much appreciated.
