Soulja boy and Wacka Flocka have left me wondering sometimes, does good present day rap still exist?

I'm hoping for a new Outkast album in the future or at least something from Andre; they're definitely my favorite group ever.

Enlighten me with some new stuff to explore please.

is it so hard for people to look into the underground? i'm assuming by 'good', you mean lyricism mixed with DJ scratching, 'cause that's usually when the consensus on 'good' rap is. what everyone fails to realize is not everyone wants to here lyricism and DJ scratching all the god damn time. which is why there's music to dance to and have a good time to. can you see girls in the club gettin' down to talib? hell no. throw some flocka on. so technically, flocka's 'good' in that situation.
anyway, by your definition of good; check out rawth by nottz raw and asher roth, friday night lights by j.cole, pilot talk 1 & 2 by curren$y, reflection eternal by talib kweli, and listen to some skyzoo.

it's amazing how dedicated of a fanbase blu has. everyone who i've met, including me, who listens to blu doesn't just listen to him casually, more like religiously. i'm past my blu stage now though, but i listened to him like everyday for months.

Yeah, his lyrics are just really easy to connect with. And he's always doing stuff with some dope producer.

I'm more of a "everything new sucks" kinda person when it comes to hip hop... not that I believe it is all bad, but it's gotten so bad in general that it isn't worth sifting thru anymore...

I still like some old stuff like Spice 1, PE, Rakim... but I usually go back to Aceyalone/Project Blowed, Living Legends, Kemetic Suns... mostly late 90s west coast underground (and no i don't count no effin Anticon)
