    yes, this is the offical one because well... it deserves one. list your favorite hip hop and rap artist, talk about them, point out that 50 cent is a snitch and that aesop rock is a fuckin' poet. any flammers of hip hop or rap will be ass violated by bonecrusher. thanks bye.

    i've been listening to a lot of peanut butter wolf.

    Lupe Fiasco is probably THE best out there now IMO. he's a hero in my eyes.

    Lately I have been listening to Timbaland's "Shock Value" album. I usually don't go for stuff like this, but I love the beats that are featured on his album and all of the songs are equally enjoyable. Good stuff.

    I'm not a huge rap fan, though I do find myself listening to a fair bit of Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg nowadays, if that counts.

    That album's dope. I got it from a friend, and probably my favorite track is the One Republic track. I have 2 DJ friends who have done their own mixes of Apologize, and Timbaland's is up there. I've heard better though.

    As of now I'm listening to:

    Timbaland
    Jedi Mind Tricks
    Talib Kweli
    Nas
    A lot of HYPHY
    The Roots
    A Tribe Called Quest
    Digable Planets

    I don't consider myself as a Rap or Hip Hop fan at all, I even tend to "dislike" the whole music genre but that's just because of the mainstream.

    My favourites are:

    Lupe Fiasco, obviously. :p He's amazing.
    Mike Shinoda (both in Linkin Park as in Fort Minor)
    Gym Class Heroes, great music.
    N.E.R.D., these guys have made some amazing music too.
    Eminem

    And maybe some others I'm forgetting here because I almost never listen to them at all.

    Like I said before most of the mainstream doesn't appeal to me at all and I think that's rather sad, I just don't like the whole Hip Hop "attitude", I guess.

    I think Food & Liquor is a very good album and Lupe has the potential to become a legend or at the very least a major cult artist like The Roots or ATCQ.

    Ah, N.E.R.D. How could I forget? Their track on Fast and Furious 3 was dope. Go check it out, it's called Rockstar Remix.

    I gotta say I really don't like rap all at much. I have The Rising Tied album, but other than that the only thing related to rap is Beastie Boys. I don't like any of the current rap cause its all about drugs and money and whores and goin to clubs its like YOULL FIND ME IN DA CLUB okay okay I get it you're always in the club.

    I don't really listen to a lot of rap. I find myself being randomly inspired to listen to hip-hop and rap, but it was only over the past year that I actually started listening to some artists. I really like being able to feel the beat when I'm in the car. It just feels so good. :lol:

    Lupe Fiasco
    Fort Minor
    Eminem
    Dr. Dre
    Snoop Dogg
    Dead Celebrity Status
    Timbaland
    Nas
    Tupac

    Royce Da 5'9" is the sickest rapper alive right now. He used to be best friends with Eminem, but they got into a fight because Eminem signed 50 Cent to his label and not Royce. For more information, go to his Wikipedia page. The song "How Come" by D12 is about Royce.

    Everybody pick up his "Death Is Certain" album. It's a masterpiece in my opinion.

    Also, everybody please listen to his song, "T.O.D.A.Y." (off Death Is Certain). It is one of my favorite songs and it just shows how awesome he is.
