    Couldn't find an actual list outside of iTunes, but it seems these are the groups that have done them.

    The Crystal Method
    A-Trak
    The Hives
    Aesop Rock
    Cassius

    and this one, which apparently just recently came out and I just bought, because well... De La Soul! Anyways, I'm liking it so far, literally just bought it though.

    Edit: the de la track kicks serious ass. I'm loving it.

    Hit the final SF stop of Rock the Bells this weekend. Had a fantastic time, the lineup did not dissapoint, just my inability to be at two stages at once. Best surprise by far was Slick Rick and Doug E Fresh sneaking onstage unannounced and off the playbill to perform a set. Best "did that just happen?" moment was ending up within touching distance of Busta Rhymes while searching for a drunken MIA homie. Good times.

    So I picked up Tokiwright from Rhymesayers new CD after seeing him open for Brother Ali about a month ago. CD is off the hook, guy put on one hell of a show too.

    Sad to see that this thread went to page 5 and no one has mentioned Rakim's new album "The Seventh Seal". It was released on November 17th, but I just managed to nab a copy. I'm not feeling some of the choruses, but Rakim brings it on every single verse (as one would expect from the God MC).

    In particular, I'm really enjoying this track with a No Doubt sample

    lupe's new mixtape is siiiiiiick.

    it's called "enemy of the state: a love story"

    dunno if i can link to it, as it's free, sent out by his camp, and it's a mixtape. but if you know what you're doing it's not hard to find. he released it as a "cassette mp3" so you have to listen through it all the way through, but there's now a version out that's split up like a normal cd.

    Yeah this tape is flames. Everyone should go listen to it right now. It's that good. Standout track is probably fireman, but this is a 20 min tape with more tight bars than most dudes careers. Lupe might be the best rapper living, and if not he's damn close to it. He's one of THE most talented dudes in the game. I've big upped this track already, but if you aren't convinced go listen to failure again. It's unbelievable.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L4fPzD6F9eI

    The new Wayne tape No Ceilings is great too. I love elite level rappers over other people's beats, and both these tapes fit neatly into that genre. Standout track for me so far is Run This Town, since I love the beat.

    Guru from Gang Starr in a coma following heart attack
    According to many different sources, Hip-Hop Wired has acquired information that rapper Guru has fallen into a coma after suffering cardiac arrest.

    Details right now remain very slim, but sources have stated that the news was broken by Guru's sister.

    Guru, who is a former member of the rap duo Gang Starr, is considered to be one of the pioneers of Hip-Hop/jazz crossovers. As more details are released, Hip-Hop Wired will continue to bring you all the information regarding the situation.

    Our prayers go to Keith "Guru" Elam and his family.

    *UPDATE*
    DJ Premier, the other half of Gang Starr called up Satelite XM radio station "Hip Hop Nation" and confirmed Guru's heart attack.

    "Guru IS in a coma and will go under surgery tomorrow afternoon."

I've got some good ideas of classic albums to pick up, but I'm really lost when it comes to good, modern artists, so that's where I'd like the most help from you.

    Stuff I like:

    P.O.S.
    Wayne's mixtapes
    Eminem
    Wu-Tang Clan (particularly Inspectah Deck)
    Jurassic 5

    Blackalicious might be up your alley, although Gab is sort of polarizing in terms of style (Blazing Arrow and The Craft.)

    You could try Blue Scholars and Common Market; Sazbi has kind of a similar sound to P.O.S (check out Bayani by the former, and Common Market's self titled release.)

    You didn't mention the Roots, so I'm going to on the off chance you haven't heard The Tipping Point yet. And really all their other albums too.

    I recommend Immortal Technique to anyone who seems like they might be vaguely interested in the political angle, but sledgehammer imagery doesn't do it for everybody.

    Well you have good taste first of all.

    Lupe: Try Lupe Fiasco's debut album Food and Liquor, his sophomore effort The Cool, his 3 early mixtapes: Fahrenheit 1/15 Part 1--The Truth Is Among Us, Fahrenheit 1/15 Part 2--Revenge of the Nerds, and Fahrenheit 1/15 Part 3--A Rhyming Ape. And his mixtape from a few months ago Enemy of the State: A Love Story. Also watch out for LASERS his 3rd album dropping this spring.

    Eminem: Infinite, Slim Shady LP, The Marshal Mathers LP, The Eminem Show After the Eminem show he fell off hard. his only good reason performance was on that Drake song Forever: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9udNcAJbiNg

    Wu-Tang: their debut group album Enter the 36 Chambers, followup Forever ( 3rd and 4th albums:The W and Iron Flag are less good but still great albums, the first 2 are classic) Then the first round of solo albums (Only Built 4 Cuban Linx, and Liquid Swords are the standouts, but the whole first round is good.) Then hit up the second round of solo albums at your leisure. Its only recently that the Wu have fallen off a bit.

    As far as stuff you didn't mention:

    If you like Eminem you should love Royce da 5'9" They are old friends and colleagues and have a similar style (and are both elite level rappers besides. Check out his mixtapes The Bar Exam and The Bar Exam 2, as well as his latest album Street Hop. You'll also love the other members of his supergroup Slaughterhouse (composed of Crooked I, Joell Ortiz, Joe Budden and Royce who are all great rappers in their own right)

    If you like Lupe you'll likely love Nas--dude fathered the lyrical imagery of today's best rappers. your favorite rappers favorite rapper. Check for Illmatic, It Was Written, and Stillmatic especially. But all his albums are great. He may be the greatest rapper living imo.

    If you like The Gorillaz check for Del The Funkee Homosapien

    If you're into that conscious rap you can't do any better than Mos Def's debut Album Black on Both Sides. Right up there in classic underground territory is Talib Kewli's Reflection Eternal (Train of Thought). Then of course their collabo album Mos Def and Talib Kweli are Black Star

    Brother Ali does underground, everyday relatable rap better than almost anyone else. He's an albino muslim from Mineappolis. Check for Shadows on the Sun, The Truth is Here, and US

    If you're into gritty NY rap try: The LOX (Jadakiss, Styles P, and Sheek Louch), Mobb Depp and maybe even Fabolous

    I'm not totally enthralled with the new Gorillaz, but it has some good stuff. I'm not very worried either, because most Gorillaz is a slow burn for me. Rhinestone Eyes, Sweepstakes, and Stylo are all quite good. The intro-type deal with Snoop is underwhelming, partially because I don't care for him whatsoever.

    Brother Ali's "Bitchslap!" is such a good song.
    Check out Cannibal Ox's album The Cold Vein. It's a little... different, but it's one of my favorite albums of all time. "The F-Word" is one of their more approachable songs, and it's got a sick RJD2 beat. Shit, check out RJ's Deadringer if you like the sound too.
