    for that live feel, it's kinda old but never duplicated i really recommend the roots CD "do you want more" and especially tracks 'proceed' and datskat, and whatever track 11 is called, brain fart right now.

    oh and by the way, all the roots stuff is just as good.

    mos def's CD's are both good, and he's got a b-sides and remix collection in europe called "we are hip-hop, you me everybody"

    common's entire career, excluding electric circus, though his track with stereo lab on that disc was sweet to me.

    blackalicious: NIA, and Blazing arrow

    Plus one on J5, but the middle CD, power in numbers was good too. just not as great as quality control.

    as far as new stuff, not much new stuff gets to me. Lupe sounds good, hip hop is lacking variety, which is worse than lacking creativity. If i have to hear one more idiot barking into a microphone, i'm breaking my radio.

    I posted this in the Kid Cudi thread ("Day and Night" is a ridiculous song BTW) but I haven't felt this excited about the new breed of hip hop artists in years. They seem to be influenced by 10000 different things and are trying to put it all together. Here's a few of my favorites:

    Jay Electronica - Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind freestyle:
    [y]tGr7XTB5Ddc[/y]

    The Cool Kids - Gold and a Pager
    [y]ovmP5XvjrMY&feature=related[/y]

    Black Milk - Long Story Short
    [y]MUM_q58bWe0[/y]

    B.O.B. - I'll Be In the Sky
    [y]rFVIpiiaf6M[/y]

    Shad - I Heard You Had a Voice Like an Angel
    [y]h4XrSHK9dp4[/y]

    Wale - The Artistic Integrity

    Black Milk's production on Tronic was fantastic. He made everything sound old and new at the same time. I love his drums - they are as raw as drums were in the 90's.

    Absolutely. Maybe it's because I've listened to so much garbage over the last couple years that my ears are finding hidden meanings that don't exist, but pay attention to this new breed of rappers coming out. I can't really explain it well, but it's something to do with their musical bravery/creativity/not caring about any boundaries. Combine that with really good lyrics, and as I said earlier, I haven't been this excited in a long time. But the two guys I'm really looking out for are Jay Electronica and B.O.B. Electronica has the craziest lyrics and B.O.B.'s creativity is endless (when I first listened, I thought he was just an Andre 3000 clone - but the more I listen to him, his storytelling and punches define him). I mean, just listen to these song:

    Jay Electronica - Exhibit A (incredible lyrics):

    B.O.B. - Room 34
