Can I get some suggestions for rap?

I'll explain myself

So after seeing a few threads this past month or so talking about rap, I finally decided to give the genre a go. I am a huge EDM fan, and I live for genres like Deep House, Trapstep etc etc. I've always loathed rap (at least every bit of it which I heard) because it just seemed like a black man complaining about how his life was very hard but now he's going to list to me how many women have given him STIs and how many cars he can fit in his latest hoe's vagina or some bollocks like that.

I figured I'd start with Kendrick Lamar, seeing as there was that whole hubbub about "Good Kid, m.A.A.d City" not winning some award and I wanted to see what all the complaining was about. It was ok, I liked some of the beats and I guess his lyrical content was above average for a rapper.

So I've taken a stab at listening to Chance the Rapper, Lupe Fiasco, Childish Gambino and then, on suggestion from a work colleague, some "old skool" stuff from the likes of 2Pac, Notorious BIG, N.W.A. and Nas

Some of the songs I recognised from hearing as I was growing up, others were ok. I know there are a couple of you out there who are proponents of rap and could suggest me stuff.

This isn't a thread for "oh post the most underground person you know because you're so cool", I'd like suggestions which have both good, meaningful lyrical content (wordplay etc is a bonus) and generally good beats in the genre of rap.

I'd be very appreciative for any suggestions.
And no, do not tell me to listen to Eminem, I've given him enough of my time to decide he's ok but not really all that special.

Rakim (anything, this guy was ahead of his time)
Enter The Wu Tang
A Tribe Called Quest (Midnight Marauders)
Nas (Illmatic is iconic)

i've been on a biggie kick for the past couple of weeks. otherwise, go for odd future. they're kinda "edgy", but it's less for shock value and more for fun. gambino is real good as well; you can't go wrong with his old shit, that's the best part. i'd also say j. cole; take a stab at the album born sinner. it's hip hop, but it's good as fuck.

I don't dickride OF. But you have called anyone listening to modern rap a faggot. OF mostly is eh, but denying Earl's talent is exactly what a hipster faggot "Old hip hop head" would do.

I called anyone who listens to current Kanye, Lil Wayne, Kendrick, Ab Soul, or OF a faggot.

>>
If you want to listen to rap that isn't just about bitches, money and drugs then it's pretty hard to come up with artists.
Good beats, lyricism and hooks? Here are a few albums that I really enjoyed:
YG-My Krazy Life
Freddie Gibs- Pinata
Schoolboy Q- Oxymoron
Pusha-T - My name is my name
G.O.O.D. Music- Cruel Summer
A$AP Rocky- Long Live ASAP (listen to Suddenly, its great wordplay and the hook at the end makes the song)
A$AP Ferg - Trap Lord
>>
try some grime and also listen to people like p money, kano, giggs, devlin, dizzee rascal ,

what do you think of these?

>>544391604
pinata is the only album you listed with good beats, the rest are just mainstream trap casio keyboard shit (minus like 2 decent beats on MNIMN)
>>
>>544388648
Danny Brown, Oncue, SOL, Tyler the Creator.

Mostly just listen to Oncue because he's awesome.

Listen to army of the pharoes and from there you can branch out to see which individual artist you like from the group. I prefer celph titled and king syze

Immortal Technique is another one good you like word play. A lot of his stuff is conspiracy theories and killing people. But it's interesting and his actual skills as a writer and lyricist are really impressive.

>>
>>544388648
I'm also a big EDM fan so I hope I can give some good suggestions.

Killer Mike, specifically the albums R.A.P. Music and Run the Jewels, however R.A.P. Music has a few tracks with the "complaining" that you seem to dislike, but not the "my bitch suck my dick then left" complaining. The guy that makes his beats also does EDM, and even does a verse or two on some songs, a lot of verses in Run the Jewels.

MF Doom

Common, has a lot of hit or miss songs.

Earl Sweatshirt, but I didn't care for a lot of his new album. His lyrics can be good but there isn't much energy, things can be pretty monotone sometimes.

Nujabes

Outkast

Shabazz Palaces

Das Racist

The Cool Kids

So what's the most badass rap you can find? I have no idea where to start that's why Im asking.

Raping about drugs, rape, murder, kill white people and etc. I've tried some Ice-T before and he's pretty good

His album is dropping in 2 months and he'll probably explode as a result of it.

Slum Village, J Dilla Era. Nice place to start really. Fantastic Vol. 2.10, off iTunes is a nice record to bump. Good luck anon.
>>
Yeah they're pretty mainstream, and def not all bangers but I'd hardly qualify them as trap casio keyboard shit. Merely stating albums I enjoyed though, I know they aren't for everyone.
>>
>>544392650
Aesop Rock's None Shall Pass is a cool rec too.

Anon how do you feel about Killer Mike's verse on Snappin & Trappin offa Stankonia?
