Id agree with Nuttz with the exception for a few bands. I'm not really that big into R&B and , but you have to give bands like B.E.P. and Outkast a lot of credit for bringing something unique to the genre.

PS. oldschool all the way.

Thanks to everyone that voted!
I have a little of everything on the list, except Black eyed peas, Hammer, Nelly and Lil John. I love asking the question because is a polarizing/contraversial subject.
Due to my age, I would have to say I really love the Golden Age stuff (especially PE) That was a great era! But due to my pigmentation, I would have to say my favorite is the White Boy stuff! I think Eminem is one of the lyricists, ever, any genre. Right up there with (but slightly below) Bob Dylan. Always loved Beasties, too (Paul's Boutique is the BOM!
I know the new stuff pretty much sucks, but I LOVE Jay-Z (The BluePrint) and about half of Kanye's stuff (Gold Digger Jams) and even though Outkast isn't very original, I love them too. EVERY song on both discs Speakerboxx/Love Below is a DIRECT rip-off of Prince. Even the photos on the albumcover rip Prince (mic gun). I sure love it though!

Most of it is poetry not music. (and intentionally offensive)

So what about rock- crossover groups like Limp Bizkit?
A really good (but hard-core) crossover group is Hed(pe). Yes that's really how it's spelled. Very sexual and violent, but hey, we're talking about rock/ fusion. It's a fantastic blend of both genres. Oh, yeah, stick to the first 2 albums, they signed with a crappy label and got censored on the third, then signed with yet another and had a bit of backlash on the forth for being so p.c..

Disposable Heros of Hyp-Hop-risy. Very good group. Look 'um up!

OH, and...

is a great way for me to embarrass my 2 teenage sons. Nothing better than walking of the green after making a birdie (actually winning a hole for a change) and busting 50 cent on their ass, "Hate it or love it the underdogs on top, and i'm gonna shine homey 'till my heart stop.... Their buddies love it. I imagine my boys wish it was the 18th. I was really surprised that there are alot of songs that try to send a good message. Nelly's album Suite is in the CD player of my truck now. Eminem had to go back in the case for a while.And this is from a 46 year old white bald dude that still has some vinyl featuring Nugent, Zappa, Hendricks.... It just sounds like they are having alot of fun recording . Oh and I'm working on my own song. I might be famous one day. I'm gonna be OBC. (Old Bald Cracker). Word.
