Actually the Black Eyed Peas have been around a while, they were a struggling group in LA when I lived there, just not famous until recently.

Thier lyrics and message are pretty deep, they are and will continue to be highly regarded in the industry.

I agree. They do have talent but if I were going to go with a struggling Cali underground indie act I would have gone with the Hieroglyphics but opinions are what make life fun.

Def Jux and the rest of the coffee house rap movement bring quite a bit of talent but they're a fad that's ready fading back into the underground scene. Once the corporate music industry realized they weren't seeing anymore Talib Kweli's, Mos Def's and Pharoah Monche's they turned a blind eye to the emerging scene. It's slowly fading into the background. Rawkus is a great example. I like Company Flow and Jedi Mind and a bunch of other "purists" but honestly their entertainment value has diminished. None of them can really claim to being anything major to Hip Hop aside from Mos Def & Talib Kweli.

either way, i still enjoy that subgenre of hip hop.

one of the funniest songs i've ever heard is aesop rock's "we're famous" where el-p lets off some steam.

i can't agree with you on calling co flow or el-p's solo material coffee house rap...have you heard the title track off of el-p's "fantastic damage?" it blew me away when i first heard it...i thought my ears were going to blow, but it grew on me.

Nah nah nah....

Old Skool, back to 1970!

THE SUGARHILL GANG!

Though I admit some of Sugarhill's music was fun...they were essentially "the backstreet boys" for the late 70's Hip Hop scene. They were formed to cash in on raps "novelty". Their song "Rappers Delight" was recorded and released in 1979. Not 1970.

If you want to go back to early early Hip Hop you might want to seek out some Watts Prophets recorded material from around 69/70.

1.) 50 Cent

2.) Dr. Dre

3.) Master P

4.) EminEm

5.) Jay Z (best lyrics out of all rappers IMO)

6.) Beastie Boys


Thats the best ones, I can't think of 15.

Hmmm...Master P...never really considered him Hall of Fame worthy but anybody who can become a multi-millionaire and then claim bankruptcy in the span of 10 years definitely deserves some type of recognition.

Man I remember the No Limit days! LOL...being the only whiteboy in a party, smoking black and milds playing spades listening to the new Mys or Fiend...god good times lol...it seemed like a new No Limit CD dropped every month or so.
