Most of the newer stuff is more "hip-hop"ish, while a good deal of the older style is "rap".
Of course, this is all my view, and it probably differs from yours.

As for my opinion, I generally don't listen to rap unless I'm out partying, which is progressively becoming rarer and rarer. I don't hate it, nor do I like it, though there are usually some exceptions.
The occasional song is catchy and I'll listen to it for a short bit, though not very often do I pick up a random rap song.
I find that eminem is one of the few rap artists who has released several songs I enjoyed, generally because they didn't follow the newer "ho's and money" thing, and are often quite catchy as well.
Personaly i see Hip-hop as more the old school style with drumbeats, dj scratch work, and emphasis on the actuall lyrics. I see rap as club and gangsta music with loud synth bass, catchy chorus, and less emphasis on the lyrics. i normally don't separate between Rap and Hip-Hop but i concider most of the hiphop/rap we see nowadays as just rap, or more like pop music.

Yeah, the industry's going nowhere now.. I'm a big fan of Rap and Hip hop, although I'll listen to any genre, but it's also a hobby thing for me.

Friend produced the track, I rapped it. Just my thoughts and expressions, nothing big. But it's not about the money cash hoes. I don't want to be reppin' for that kind of dirt. Anyways, enjoy the track if you decide to hear it.

Lupe Fiasco's Food and Liquor and The Cool.
Gym Class Heroes' Cruel as School Children
And a couple songs by The Roots.
Lupe fiasco, this guy is really good. In france it's hard to get info about good american rappers, cause here only gangsta rappers really pierce. I like dizzee and Kanye too. and a bit of busta rhymes.

Ever since discovering it on the Smokin' Aces soundtrack, GZA's Liquid Swords has grown on me for the past few months because of the brilliant lyricism it possessed, with double entendres, symbolism and hidden meanings. Besides, another reason I liked it so much was his inclusion of soundbites from old kung-fu and samurai films.

Haven't listen to rap music for a while, last hip hop record i bought was Jurassic 5's Feedback. But a rap duo just caught my attention recently, The Cool Kids, they have a myspace page, worth checking out.

Liquid Swords is pretty much my favorite hip hop album of all time.

For creative, intelligent and funny lyricism, I would recommend Busdriver.

Props for mentioning Busdriver. He's not what you would expect from a rapper but really interesting. Temporary Forever is my favorite album.

All I have to say is that modern day Hip Hop / Rap / whatever, sucks. The 90's was where it was at, with NAZ, Biggie, TuPAC, Wu Tang, Dr. Dre, Bone Thugs, etc...

Yes, did you like his newest album "None Shall Pass?" I thought it's easily one of his best efforts since "Labor Days."

A Tribe Called Quest and Ice Cube are clearly artists of the 90s though.
Ice ist still active, yes, but he was on his peak with AmeriKKKa's Most Wanted and Death Certificate - at the beginning of the nineties.


(I'm not saying there don't exist great hip hop artists today, don't get me wrong.)

Yeah I see what you're saying, that's what I was referring to. There were so many artists that dropped the best of their material in their prime which was in the '90's. Even though some are still active they haven't managed to release anything as good as their early material like Outkast with their first three albums, Mobb Deep's sophmore and third albums and the many classic albums that came from the Boot Camp Click family.
