I've heard some stuff from 7L & Esoteric & Aceyalone before, but none of the others. I'd like to recommend Binary Star. I've mentioned these guys before, but anyways they're more than worth the listen.

Song recommendations:

"Glen Close"

"Slang Blade"

"Dat Fast Food Joint"

"Honest Expression"

Also, check out their LP, "Masters Of The Universe" if you like (you will  ;D) what you hear  :)

I think that if you take one of the 'O's' out of 'Good' it's 'God', if you add a 'D' to 'Evil' it's the 'Devil'. I think some cool motherfucker sat down a long time ago and said 'let's figure out a way to control motherfuckers'.

The album I'm feeling right now is Non Phixion - The Future Is Now, one of the dopest releases of the year in my opinion. The production is consistantly tight throughout the album and the MC's drop some knowledge on the mic too.
"Without The Elements It's All Irrelevent" Jurassic 5

"This world better acknowledge me I'm over ambitious
Do almost anything to rob a genie for his wishes." 57th Dynasty

"We didn't give a toss about money, fame or stardom
Just about the culture, the music, slang and jargon." Blak Twang

"Freedom Is A Road Seldom Travelled By The Multitude" Public Enemy

"If Ignorance Is Bliss Then Knock The Smile Of My Face" Zach De La Rocha

"One day Alice came to a fork in the road and saw a Cheshire cat in a tree. "Which road do I take?" she asked. "Where do you want to go?" was his response. "I don't know," Alice answered. "Then," said the cat, "it doesn't matter."
