is there rap music which is not just gangsta blabbering with no content or abstrap post-rap like anticon stuff, just thoughtful stuff with a musical knowledge behind? I am not familiar with the genre.
If you can't listen to gangsta rap then don't even bother listening to any hip hop with lyrics because it's ethos is all over all of rap music.
Either way, Mos Def, Jedi Mind Tricks, Deltron, Tribe called Quest, MF DOOM, GZA is maybe the shit you're looking for
Go to Canada.
Seriously research Canadian rap.
Halifax, Winnipeg, and Vancouver all had really good scenes in the 00's
Xavier Wulf, Chris Travis, and Bones. They aren't like the intellectual try hard thesaurus rappers, but they also aint like the try hard gangster ass rappers either. they rap some real shit.
