    Hell no. I listen to the older generation of music. Oldies, Classic Country.

    I listen to a little bit of everything, including rap. The artist that's currently getting the most rotations in my CD changer is Eminem. I didn't listen to him at all when he was best known for spewing hate but his new CD has a few excellent tracks.

    Public Enemy is still my favorite. The layers of noise they make is great, and the lyrics still hit home today.

    Mike, I thought I was the only one who loved Public Enemy and Joni Mitchell at the same time.[​IMG]
    Public Enemy is clearly my favorite rap group and their masterpiece "It Takes A Nation Of Millions TO Hold Us Back" should be included in every rap collection, new or old.
    Just my opinion, and Stephen Thomas Erlewine of the All Music Guide states the following about the album:

    I enjoy listening to rap. Mostly I dislike what they play on the radio, though. However, I have to admit I do like the new Eminem disc.
    Groups I really like are Jurassic 5, Black Eyed Peas, Swollen Members, and others along this line. If you were ever a fan of DAS EFX, check out Lords of the Underground. Same guys, new name, new style. Good stuff.

    Back in the 80s, I enjoyed listening to Run DMC on the airwaves ("Tricky" in particular).
    Ever since viewing "The Beastie Boys Anthology" from Criterion Collection, I've been converted to this "white-boy-rap-group". I love their "Intergalactic", "Body Movin'", and "Three MCs and One DJ" (Mixmaster Mike is phenomenal) videos.

    I listen to quite a bit of rap as well, but not much commercial rap at all.

    Some suggestions:

    Blackalicious - Nia (the best rap album of 2002 so far)
    Dr. Octagon - Dr. Octagonacolagyst (my fave rap album)
    Kool Keith on vocals, Dan the Automator does the beats, DJ Qbert on turntables. That's an all-star team worth of talent.

    Delton 3030 - Deltron 3030 - Del on lyrics, Kid Koala on turntables, Dan the Automator produced. Great disc.

    Black Star - Black Star - Mos Def and Talib Kweli

    Mos Def - Black on Both Sides

    DJ Vadim - USSR: Reconstruction

    Cannibal Ox - The Cold Vein

    I'll second these artists:

    Wu-Tang Clan - 36 Chambers: Enter the Wu-Tang

    A Tribe Called Quest - The Low End Theory (A great album)

    The Roots - Do You Want More?

    Jurassic 5 - Quality Control

    and of course, Public Enemy - Fear of a Black Planet

    there's plenty of other albums, those are some off the top of my head.

    Can anyone tell me when the initial 'c' got dropped from the term 'rap music'? [​IMG]
    Sorry, not a fan, and I've yet to hear a morally-justified argument for why misogyny, sexism and the advocation of cop-killling is anything worthy of praise. Take those subjects away, and you're not left with much for rappers to go on about, are you?

    Sorry to barge on this thread, but rap is the most untalented, shallow music possible and is an insult to real artists who actually put some effort into what they do.

    You obviously haven't seen the new Nelly video "Hot In Herre". Not to single out that one particular "artist" but sadly that's what the majority of rap is, horrible crap.
