i don't see there where you were specifically talking about any kind of Hip-hop... just ALL hip hop.

As i said, Don't generalize... it makes no sense.

drsmooth23 gave you a list and there are a few in my selections too...
Go take a listen......

instead of listening to 50cent, Ja rule, Xibit, Chingy and any other commercial and soulless crap.

Yep...there are literally hundreds of groups and emcee's that are the polar opposites of what the OP believes hip-hop to be.

And Immortal technique is about as Anti-government, Anti-establishment and political as you can get.

He has quite a "rough" voice but his lyrics are literally "mind-blowing".

he is amazing....and isn't afraid to speak the truth

immortal Technique was in the movie "This Revolution"
Very good watch, but not much music, just a bit of him being interviewed in the studio.
And you can find KRS ones stuff just about anywhere.

My music tastes are pretty much guided by mood...

Oddly enough, heavy metal relaxes me (Metallica, Dethklok (sure, it's a cartoon, but the album kicks arse!), Rob Zombie)

Classical (especially Baroque) or Yanni/Enya (the upbeat ones) helps me wake up, whereas the slower Enya songs or Yanni will make me sleepy or relaxed.

For just normal listening, I'm more of an 80's pop fan, or the 50's rock songs.

There's some modern stuff I like, but very little of it. Most just falls into a couple of categories and very few new songs seem to be innovative.

Another favorite is soundtracks of movies and tv shows. There's some really good music there. My ringtone is the theme for Airwolf, hehe....

Ektomorf, KYPCK, Soulfly, Mastodon, The Haunted, & Katatonia. For some reason it focuses, relaxes, and clears my mind.

David Morales
Dean Martin
Deepest Blue
Dropkick Murphy
Dry Cell

Linkin Park
Lisa Miskovsky
Maor Levi
Marilyn Manson
Maroon 5
Massive Attack (brilliant stuff)
Mat Zo
Miguel Migs

Nordic Stars (for some reason I like their songs)
Oliver Smith

Rom Di Prisco
Scooter (I know but again I like Excess all areas for some reason)
The Script

Static X
Steve Forte Rio
Tom Petty
Tomer Yosef
Vicente Fernandez

I have plenty of others like Anjunabeats, ISOS, ASOT, Elements of Life (Live in Copenhagen might I add...amazing concert and great album), and various compilations. So where would you categorize me? Confused as hell and completely chaotic / random?

I'm very much grounded in the Blues but I'm suprised no one has mentioned JAZZ for it's mind expanding qualities.

Like this....

or perhaps something like this....

I think the conclusion I have kind of formed after reading the posts and thinking (Even making changes while writing this post) is that Open Mindedness is its own thing. It seems that the open minded people that have posted are also open minded when it comes to music. Me personally, am very open to any kind of music. Simply you have good music and bad music, and there is a certain mentality that comes with the love of music. True musicians to me, are sensitive to some knowledge or sensation that many aren't. Same goes with being open minded I think. You have rights and wrongs; possibilities and impossibilities. People truly open minded or truly striving for such, are also tuned into some similar sensation. I notice something in every artist, whether it be a musician, author, painter, or what have you, that there is some higher or different level of understanding that they hold. Same goes for those who tend to remain Open-minded. Those are my 2 cents (or maybe 200...). In any case, great topic.
Favorite Genres:
Folk (Folk/rock)
Big Band/Swing
Big fan of Celtic Music

Like I said, I'm very open to all music. Not so much partial to rap and hip hop though not denouncing it or bashing it. (Even though I find a hard time labeling some of it, mostly mainstream stuff, as music at all.)

A little external source that does a better job of explaining what I meant in the last post. The Band is Black in the Mind, they are not the most well-know band ever, but one of the members is a high school buddy of my brother. I thought they shed some light on this sort of unknown sensation.

They needed to find the perfect band name, a name that would catch the minds of the fans and draw in the others. They came up with ‘Black in the Mind’. So what does it mean? The question itself can almost be the answer you’re looking for; it’s whatever you want it to be. Being Black in the Mind is easy; you simply "black out" your mind and allow your thoughts and worries of everyday life to dissolve into nothing. When you free your mind of everything, you find yourself in the right state of mind to really hear music. To be Black in the Mind, you must be able to "hear" the music. If so, the music will be free to take your imagination anywhere it wants to go. This creates a strong bond between the music and the listener, a personal relationship. This is what music is and does for us. So there it is- Black in the Mind is more than just an idea; it’s a place, a feeling, a safe haven of escape that’s always there when needed. You can make it whatever you want; it’s your musical world to customize.
