    To tell you the truth I'm starting this thread for my own benifit but you could pick up a thing or two. But rather than list off what i play (in the off chance that your going to download or pick up a copy), I'll tell you what I have AND why it's good.

    If your just looking to sample I'll put some good tracks in parenthasies. That's these things> ( )

    FREESTYLE FELLOWSHIP- (Hip hop, Inner city boundaries) Slick lyrics, slick Jazz loops. One of the most original set's i've ever listened to. Aceyalone, nuff said.

    TRIBE CALLED QUEST- (El Segundo, Youthful Expressions, Award Tour, Keep it rollin') Peoples Instinctive Travels and the Paths of Rhythm is probably the most solid hip hop album i've ever owned. Most of tribe's tracks are up-beat and there about day to day stuff.

    TYPICAL CATS- (Qweloquiallisms, Snake oil, The manhatten project)
    Heavy lyrics over mellow jazz loops. I havn't found a single track I don't like.

    If I didn't cover them enough feel free to add to what I wrote.

    DE LA SOUL- (Tread water, Buddy, Change in speak) De La came out around the same time as tribe and their styles are similar. They use a lot more jazzy beats and funky loops. Definatly a fresh group.

    Looptroop (good revolutionists from sweden)- always dope production. Look for solo projects by Promoe.

    Anything by Natural Elements (where the fuck did these guys go???)

    Typical cats = dope.
    but...id rather hear Prime ( mostly punchline stuff- most of his shit you can get your hands on will be molemen production)if im listenin to Chicago shit or All Natural( "conscious" rap)

    Jean Grae - i dont know what to say about her or how to describe her shes just fresh.

    and anyone sleeping on Crooked I should be hurt. (long as you can get past the sometimes annoying delivery and horrible ear for beats- but what can you expect from deathrow - but yes HES REALLY DOPE)

    thats enough for now.
