Rap and Hip-Hop:

So that I can get off to a good start, are there any albums from Aesop Rock or Mos Def you'd especially recommend?

I'm so sorry
Lucky: Question wasn't at me. But None Shall Pass is considered Aes' most accessible, Labor Days and the Daylight EP are just below that. Bazooka Tooth is the least accessible, but also one of the best.

I know little about Mos Def.

Mos Def... "The Estatic" is pretty good, and well, "True Magic" and "The New Danger" both have their moments.

I think Aesop Rock's best work (and really, the only one I can play without skipping) is the Daylight EP.

Mos Def. Eh, all I know is that he's good. Haven't dug deep into him.

But white people LOVE him! :D
dOOOOM
But white people LOVE him! :D

With good reason.
I'm so sorry
Neccy: I disagree with your statement on Mos Def

I'm white and find him meh.

^ Was joking. Basically, there's a site called Stuff White People Like, and yeah, he's one of the people mentioned. It's hilarious. :D Though I was hoping someone would pick up on that...=/
Uncle George
Well yeah, he's pretty whitey-friendly. I do admit to a lot of the SWPL -sins, and so do the author.

Neccy: I hate Stuff White People Like, only becuase i don't recall ever liking anything they said i would like.

Antipop Consortium? Arrhythmia made me realize that, yes, alternative/underground hip-hop is subject to Sturgeon's Law, just like everything else.
 
I'm so sorry
I've only heard a handful of their songs.

So i can't really say, i can say however that one of the rappers has the coolest name ever.

I like Stuff White People Like because its nice, fun poking at stereotypes. There's always exceptions to the rule. :3

Idk what a loonie is, but since as you mentioned a bunch of cool hip-hop groups in there, I'll assume they're good. Haven't heard Thadius Beck before, will check. /adds to list
I'm so sorry
Loonies are crazy people.

Dead Prez & DJ Green Lantern "Pulse of the People" is the only good rap album to come out in 2009. Prove me wrong.

I'm playing DANGERDOOM. It is good. Thoughts?
I'm so sorry
I actually have not heard that particular combination. Which i should since i like both MF DOOM and Danger Mouse.

-goes to youtube-

Alright, listening to "Benzie Box" and liking what i'm hearing.

I've never checked any of Danger Mouse's solo stuff. Got a rec?
I'm so sorry
Actually, not off the top of my head. Blame it on the thrift stores and my bad memory.

I'll have one in a minute.

Kkkkkkkkkkkkk Sofa King is awesome
I'm so sorry
Litis: Didn't he do instrumental work though?

But yeah The Grey Album is great if you like The Beatles and/or Jay-Z.

I'm not a huge fan of either.
