Hip-Hop - Suggestions?

Alright, so here's a guy with 16,000 songs in his iTunes library, of which less than 1% is rap/hip-hop/etc.

This is mostly because I'm so turned off by mainstream rap (it's honestly all the same to me (yes, huge hypocrisy)), and love the stuff I listen to now(electronic, post-hardcore, indie rock) so much that I havn't bothered venturing into the hip-hop genre. Ironically, I write beats all the time, and can appreciate some good hip-hop remixes.

So here's what I'm asking for: Some underground/unique artists who someone who loves instrumental stuff and has a decent music background can enjoy. I torrent stuff and buy albums at live shows; links are cool if you got em.

Thanks duuuuudes

These are "rap" but they are not really the mainstream rap about guns/money/bling/gangsta shit... most of these songs actually have meanings...



Lupe Fiasco - The Cool


Kid Cudi - both of his albums (new one just came out a week or 2 ago)



With that said... I still listen to the gangsta/bling shit.

Something free that I consider lyrically incredible:

Lil Wayne - No Ceilings

It's a mixtape of wayne using other people's beats, but he just straight up kills these songs.
