    mc solaar is a good start. heard a track by DL Incognito with Mic Check on it (French canadian emcee), he sounds pretty good but that's all ive heard by him.

    7L produces some classic beats, too bad esoteric sucks
    pete rock
    stoupe (produces for Jedi Mind and more recently canibus)
    RJD2 (produced for mHz, has many mindblowing instros, produces for Soul Position with BLueprint on the mic)
    3582 (fat jon and j rawls)
    MF Doom (viktor vaughn and monster island czars albums kill it)
    new Black Moon album has some sweet beats ('stoned iz the way' 'stay real' 'pressure iz tight', wack song titles but oh well)
    akrobatik (produces a lot of his own beats, which sound awesome)
    Capital D (with all natural, rockin it)
    atmosphere has gotten pretty stale, but you cant deny that Ant delivers some kickin beats
    brother ali is a way better emcee than slug, with production from Ant (rhymesayers entertainment, same record label)
    company flow, cannibal ox (El-P produces a lot of this stuff, if you're into more abstract hip hop)
    dan the automator (handsome boy modelling school LP has ill beats, same with Deltron 3030)
    Dilated peoples (sort of all starts to sound the same after a while, but fresh stuff nonetheless)
    el da sensei/artifacts (wrong side of the tracks has a classic jazzy beat)
    gangstarr (dj premier always comes through with amazing beats, but once again a lot of his stuff starts to sound the same after a while)
    jurassic 5 (no list of hip hop anything is complete without j5)
    killarmy, sunz of man, wu tang all get amazing production
    last emperor has some nice beats, dont know who produced all of them
    living legends
    looptroop (produced by DJ Embie...probably THE best at mixing huge numbers of samples, tied with RJD2...swedish shit dont sleep on it...they're also all writers)
    lord finesse
    large professor
    Lootpack (madlib is crazy)
    slum village (jaydee rocks the mic and the mixer)
    non phixion has some amazing beats
    peanut butter wolf is a crazy dj
    pharoah monche gets great production
    planet asia/rasco/cali agents (all classic shit)
    Kutmasta Kurt is an awesome producer, check out the Skhool Yard album (kurt + planet asia and 3 other emcees from fresno)
    Alkaholiks get ILL west-coast style production from e-swift and whoever else
    tribe called quest of course

    quick list, i missed a million names, but every emcee there is not only hyper-ill with the lyrics and the flow, but get great production (or more rarely, produce their own hot beats)

    eh, mc solaar is not very good, in my opinion. i dunno, france is not the first place i'd go for hiphop.

    i was trying to collect international hiphop mp3s for a while. scandinavia and spain were more my speed i think. drunken tiger's from la, but they're korean, and i dig that shit too. blah.
