RHH: How does your top ten favorite artists list look with NRHH artists/bands included?

Mine (Keep in mind this is a rough draft, just thought up) :

Black Thought

The Doors

Bob Dylan


Ghostface Killah

Camu Tao

Mr. Lif


TV on The Radio

Kanye West (Did I just admit that? Well I'm talking Pre-Graduation Kanye, though I still think he's dope as a producer and a decent rapper)


@Morbid: You were the first one I heard mention them, but I didn't check them out until Jack gave me the DL to Dear Science. That is seriously one of the best albums I've ever heard.

    Hmmm. Pretty different.

    1) GZA

    2) Aesop Rock

    3) Beck

    4) Cannibal Ox

    5) The Flaming Lips

    6) TV on the Radio

    7) Blackalicious

    8) Tom Waits

    9) Ghostface Killah

    10) Led Zeppelin

    I guess its different because in terms of music as a whole, some of my favorite rappers are lacking. But for hip hop they're awesome.

    I'm glad you enjoyed Dear Science. Thats one of the best albums I've ever heard as well. I just wish more people had checked it out too

    Yeah, definitely. It would probably be a 50/50 split between NRHH and hip hop albums. BQ: Either Arctic Monkeys - Favorite Worse Nightmare or Erykah Badu - New Amerykah Pt.One.

    TV On The Radio, did me or Jack recommend them?

    Mine (as of right now of the top of my head):

    Aesop Rock


    Bob Dylan

    Miles Davis

    The Roots


    David Byrne



    John Coltrane

    This is mainly what I've been deeply into for the last few days.

    Source(s): Edit: I was wondering. Out of all the albums I've heard that is one that surprised me a lot. Edit: I would also put Nick Drake and Elliot Smith somewhere on my list, but I don't know where I might take John off, and put one of them on.

    Well when you factor in groups, it changes my top ten quite a bit but only one non RHH makes it.

    Black Star

    The Roots

    Slum Village (Includes both J Dilla and Elzhi)

    Binary Star

    Lupe Fiasco

    Wu Tang Clan

    Blu & Exile


    Modest Mouse

    Kanye West

    Source(s): I guess when I factor in Kanye's production, he makes my top 10. He makes my top 15 usually...
