    Decent hip hop/rap

    I have only recently started listening to some hip hop / rap (whats the difference?) and I was wondering if anyone knows any good songs or favourites that I could download and listen to.

    Go for it!

    ...that should keep you occupied

    That list might discourage you, so there are two labels I'd recommend checking out. Any artist on www.definitivejux.net and www.anticon.com has a very unique style. Buck 65 is also something to set apart. That being said, anyone on that list is worth looking into.

    Have fun.

    listen to subwaydesigns.

    or just hit my tunes list here... mind you, it's loading up about 2800 songs, so it takes a second to load....

    The way I see it is, rap is what you hear on MTV, its very mainstream. Hip-hop is the underground stuff and usually involves a lot of turn-tablism. For hip-hop your best bets would be:

    Quannum (I changed my mind)
    Buck 65 (Pants on fire, square 3)
    DJ Shadow (mashin' on the motorway)
    Deltron 3030 (3030, virus, things you can do)
    People Under the stairs (acid raindrops)
    The streets (turn the page)
