This is a decent thread idea. Why do you love hip hop? People have issues one way or another, and i think the beauty of rap/hip hop is the fact there are so many different labels for "types" of it, just like Rock. Here is mine. Kanye West, my favorite rapper. College Dropout is one of the best albums of all time in my book. Quality, great songs, at least 10 could be called "radio hits" and there are 5+ "underground" hits. Great, great album. This is one of my favorite rappers ever, Talib Kweli, on Kanye. Dolph'sZiggler get in here.
