Tyler the creator. Easy. Earl and Childish are good too though… If you seriously think drake is any good at all you deserve to be deaf. For real.

All of TDE (Kendrick Lamar, Schoolboy Q, Ab-Soul, Jay Rock), Hopsin, Kid Cudi, and Lupe Fiasco. All of them have good messages in their lyrics.

@ijesuschrist, haha that was my first thought too, but i DO enjoy kid cudi, have you ever heard it? You might enjoy it, he not REALLY a rapper

try this one… http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1tR5yVwiRto

and I believe this one is about popping hallucinogens (or maybe sex)…http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PoapG_5w8kY, what do you think

But…to me a good rapper should be defined by their live performances. I saw TI and Ludacris at a festival recently in Atlanta, and it was eye opening, to say the least. I preferred the performance by Florence and the Machine over both of those losers

I don’t like “best”. Music is not a competition.

Immortal technique is sweet though

I also like Saul Williams.

And Aesop Rock is also great.

@ijesuschrist, if you don’t like this kind of music, why are you in a post discussing the ‘best’ aspects of it? the subject for you should be moot and thus not require your voice

I mean, can’t you just feel the depth of these words the artists are trying to share with the world http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RH76tfDxm7Y

Haha but seriously, each to there own :)

I used to not really enjoy this genre of music, so I asked myself why, and every answer I came up with stemmed from some stereotype i held due to my upbringing and the society around me, So i searched for as many artists as i could, cleared my much loved music from my ipod and loaded solely “rap and hip-hop” music. 2 months later and I feel a little closer to seeing the beauty in everything this worlds got on offer and limiting the hate in me.

If you want to try such a thing, some artists i can reccomend are Sage Francis, K’naan, but more importantly just try anything and everything, leave those preferences in the closet for a while, they can be quite limiting
