Default Best hip-hop

Yo. I'm here from Germany a huge fan of hip-hop. I've been trying to go through the Good rap/hip-hop thread but it is way too huge and seems to be sort of a name a rapper thread, not a good rap song (Waka Flocka is in there man)

Can anyone here recommend me some good beginner mixtape stuff or some good oldscool 90's stuff?

This is good. Maybe add in Mos Def - Black on Both Sides

Good one! Yeah I'd add that one, Black Star and It's Dark And Hell Is Hot by DMX to my list now that LALakerFan mentioned them. I was trying to keep my list concise but there's too much good stuff from the 90s.
