If your into the more thoughtful type of hiphop, which alot of you seem to be or were, where production and lyrical content are paramount, i would definetly recommend you check out Blue Scholars 'Bayani'. Some brillant beats and lyrics, best song by far is 50K deep, about the riot in Seattle a few years back.
Another quality band is Cunninlyngist, best album 'A piece of strange', truly excellent listening. 'Blazing arrow' by Blackalicious is also superb, infact just about anything you can get your hands on related to Quannum records/ projects is guaranteed to be top notch, usually with DJ shadow or Cut chemist doing the spinning.
