    Yeah, I know this is more of a rock/alternative-oriented site.... but deep down, I am a rap fan, and a rap fan only.... LP is the only non-rap artist I listen to.
    So first off.... 1) Do you listen to rap music? and 2) If yes... which are your favorite artists?

    Since I'm a rapper myself my iTunes is pretty much dominated by hip-hop.

    Immortal Technique, Brother Ali, Fort Minor, Atmosphere, Styles of Beyond, Lupe Fiasco, Gym Class Heroes, Nas, Apathy, Jedi Mind Tricks, Jurassic 5, Kanye West, Dead Prez, Celph Titled, Chamillionare and loads more.

    -edit-

    How the hell did I forget KRS One and Canibus? :blink:

    My all time favourite hip hop artists would have to be Dälek, Psycho Realm, Delinquent Habits. When it comes to english rap. Alias, Andre Nickatina, Beastie Boys, Brother Ali, Chain of Command, Nas are also artists I enjoy (plus classic acts such as NWA, KRS-One, Wu-Tang Clan and so on). I guess i could mention the more "hip hop" moments of DJ Krush and Fun-Da-Mental, although they pretty much belong to a whole other spectrum of music (trip-hop/ dub more or less).

    As far as other languages are concerned, I pretty much love French hip hop, especially Keny Arkana and Supreme NTM, and Greek artists (Terror X Crew and Active Member are highly reccomended).

    I do listen to rap but not a lot really.

    That said, I've been in love with Lupe Fiasco when I first heard him a while back. I used to love Eminem as well.

    Oh yeah, Eyedeas And Abilities are amazing.



    But I HATE 50 Cent :mad:

    I used to be a huge fan of rap music, but my passion started dying down years ago. Today I only really listen to The Beastie Boys and occasionally some other stuff, mostly, from the 90's (Snoop, Wu-Tang, Tribe Called Quest, etc).

    I'm starting to like Lupe Fiasco a little bit, as well.

    I like Saul Williams, to an extent, and Kanye although I haven't actually listened to all of his last album yet. Boogie Down Productions/KRS-One are another one I missed.
    Handsome Boy Modeling School had their moments as well, and on that note I'll listen to anything involving Dan Nakamura and probably like it.
