Default Recommend me some good rap/hip-hop.

I'm not usually much of a rap/hip-hop fan.. but I've always loved a good rap/hip-hop track. Problem is I find it hard to find whole albums by rappers that I enjoy, rather just certain tracks here and there.

So.. recommend me some songs I might like. Here's some stuff I like:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X05dNpLY2HA

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kzkj-efDIXk

NWA - Straight Outta Compton, Jay-Z - Public Service Announcement, JayZ & Kanye - Who Gon Stop Me?, Kayne - Runaway, most of Eminem.

As I said, I'm not really a rap kind of guy. I have no idea if these songs are considered "cool" by you rap dudes, nor do I give a shit, but anything you can recommend that I might like judging by what I mentioned above?

Joey Bada$$ - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ziDnPmLE8pg
Check out his mixtape 1999 if you like the song above, great tape.


No doubt, check out Kendrick Lamar, the best in the game right now.

and one of my favourite rappers, Logic - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hN3Myq15CVQ

I liked the Joey Bada$$ song you linked, and the Logic one was decent (chick was hawttt, not usually a black girl lover either). The Kendrick Lamar stuff seems alright, don't love it but don't dislike it. I'll have to listen to the whole album.

The Project Pat song I wasn't a fan of. Picky as **** when it comes to rap lol.

Everybody knows you have to start with Trinidad James.

I second listening to Kendrick Lamar though. Just started last week and I pretty much have his songs blasting 24/7.

surprised no one has said Wu-Tang yet.

Method Man - Tical album, one of my favourites, listen to that before playing ball lol

A Tribe Called Quest, considered by many the GOAT hip hop group. All their albums are start-finish listens.

Good Kid Maad City by Kendrick Lamar is a great album too, should probably take a look into that as well, probably the best hip hop album of 2012.

Okay, after a quick browse through my library, the ones I enjoy listening to the most are

Mos Def
Common
A Tribe Called Quest/Q-Tip (One of the two rappers in ATCQ - Hs solo stuff is pretty good)
Kendrick Lamar
2Pac
Kanye West (Mainly from College Dropout)
Jay-Z (Mainly the album Reasonable Doubt)
