In no order:
Nas
Common
Talib Kweli
Q-Tip
Guru
Mos-Def
Binary Star
Rakim
GZA
Raekwon
Inspectah Deck
Big L
Method Man
KRS-One
Jeru the Damaja
C.L. Smooth
These MCs are an example of real hip-hop music. Listen to KRS-One and not Nelly. Get a Talib Kweli CD to get double the quality and half the price of a Chingy CD.
