El-P is officially dead to me. I'll always cherish what we had.

I haven't seen big KRIT mentioned. He's definitely worth a spin. Raekwon has a new album out/coming out soon I'm excited about checking out. Even though I'll only like maybe half of it. I'll REALLY like a quarter of it.

Hm what else. Nope that's it. There's like 10 people doing hiphop worth hearing rn

So I just learned today that the subtle beatboxing on Atmosphere's 'The Waitress' was actually done by Tom Waits. Sorry if this is really old news to everyone, but I just discovered this and it blew my mind a little bit.

He might as well have. Heartbroken all the same. I held on for too long some say. Set myself up for it. Wouldn't be the first time. :/

This song is a great example of Kendrick's greatness.

Forgive me for not embedding I only do this stuff from my phone and wouldn't even know where to start but I like links anyway for the same reason.

I actually had no idea Tom Waits was on that track. After reading that on here, "The Waitress" happened to come up on my playlist and I listened really intently for the beatboxing. It's definitely subtle, but knowing the backstory, especially after having the lyrical connection between Slug and Waits made for me, makes it incredible. Behind the scenes details like this are really gratifying.

Like so many other first time posters who make threads like this, they seem to have disappeared as quickly as they came. Not sure why in this case, they weren't mocked by anyone and got plenty of good recommendations. Maybe they just decided that they actually didn't want to get back into hip hop.

100s - IVRY - fantastic EP. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CwA1_En3SaI

also, I love that J. Cole Born Sinner album. Haven't listening to a mainstream rap album on that steady a rotation since Kanye's Dark Fantasy album.

I've fallen into a "no rap" phase lately. I tend to switch between listening to hip hop and listening to everything but hip hop every few months. Is there anybody that hasn't already been named in this thread that makes hip hop unlike anything else that's currently out? I miss the weirdos and the completely independent type dudes, doing their thing like the whole current scene doesn't even exist. If you guys have any recommendations that fit the bill, let me know.

you might like those dudes death grips. personally, i can't stand them but the rest of the internet seems to think they're the second coming.

other possibilities who aren't quite as out there:
