A Tribe Called Quest - 'Jazz (We've Got)


Digable Planets - 'Rebirth of Slick'


Rap + jazz samples. Really cool.

There's also this site (http://www.emptyfree.com) where the dude occasionally posts a lot of rap/hip-hop that isn't in English. Polish, Italian, German etc. It's a mixed bag but some of it is cool and it's always interesting to hear music that isn't Anglophone...

For females, I think Lauren Hill should be singled out for her own solo album, which was a great blend of hip-hop and soul. Girl's got skills.

Big Daddy Kane's on the list there, chief.

And I've only ever heard one Dead Prez track, and other than the beat it was pretty weak.

I don't really call Jill Scott and Lauren Hill pure hip hop, and anyways Mary J Blige would own that crossover category anyways.

For female rappers, put me down for:

MC Lyte who was number one....till Missy Elliot came along maybe?

my Canadian sister Michie Mee!!

Lisa Left Eye Lopes RIP Lisa

Me'shcell

Queen Latifa

Roxanne Shante

Sylk-E Fyne

Yo-Yo

and for the older kids the girl rapper groups

Salt N Pepa
Wee Papa Girl rappers
JJ Fad - dont roast me for that, you know y'all rocked out Supersonic back in the day

X 10000 for this thread tho...this white boy has been lovin me some hip hop since 1985!!

Huh? Blige can't fucking rap. My point about LH is that she's got a great voice for soul stuff, but is also a formidable rapper, lyrics and delivery.
