Mine, as of late are:

I Stand Alone - Theophilus London (Like an upbeat Cudi song. Love it)

Contemplate - Wale (Really relate to these lyrics)

Spiderwebs - Azad Right (I really like the chorus. I also love his 2nd and 3rd verse)

Keystone State of Mind - Tayyib Ali (He's only 18. Like a more humble version of Tyler the Creator imo.)

What about you guys?

If you don't like hip-hop, don't bother coming in here.

:)

I can't stop listening to Martians vs Goblins, by The Game ft. Tyler the Creator. I just love Tyler's verse on that song.

Rap is the act. Hip hop is the actual genre.

No they aren't the same thing. I'm to tired to bother explaining so if you want to believe you can, if you don't whatever. I don't care.

That song is a classic. Even being atheist, it makes me think that the idea of God and Jesus is really good for people.

One of those songs that became famous because it was THAT good. That's how I feel about all of Kid Cudi's singles as well... :P

Tyler's whole act (whether he knows it or not) is a satire of society. His delivery is somewhat questionable and sometimes (like in interviews) I think hes being a huge dick. I like his songs though. You seem to be a Cudi fan. What did you think of his last track?

Oh for sure. He's hilarious, but he is very arrogant, and I know this genre has plenty of arrogant artists, but his arrogance just seems WAY more apparent than most. No One Believes Me? I like it. Far from a favorite, but I like the idea of him doing more rock-oriented tracks.

Listened to Tha Carter IV recently ... smh. I'm waiting for J. Cole's album. Super excited -- I like Tyler, The Creator and I also don't ... he's pretty interesting to follow on Twitter to be honest. Also, Frank Ocean is amazing.

Literally just downloaded a Frank Ocean mixtape. I'm excited. I like that at least Lil Wayne has a better message...ish. :P

So I liked every song you posted. Great taste. Do you know if each of those artists, other than GCH, have mixtapes with those songs on them? I hate just getting one song of an artist.

Yeah, he didn't rap enough in it. Pursuit of Happiness appears in that movie. :P I guess I'm a huge fan of Cudi because he is doing something different, and his lyrical direction is one I generally can greatly relate too.

I liked the darkness in his last album. Plus he is original (like tyler the creator). I like unique stuff, probably why I don't listen to the radio and find my own music instead. Has he talked about a 3rd album yet? Im not really a follower of artist's goings-on

I actually like MotM I more than II. But II is great as well. I also love the darkness of his music, but I honestly get legitimately sad if I listen to MotM II. :P Yeah, he's working with his rock group 2 Be Continuum and is also working on Man on the Moon III. The rock group will release first. I'm stoked.

Here's a couple:

(language warning since these contain explicit lyrics ;) )

Roc Marciano x Gangrene - "Sewer Gravy" --- This is more like a Remix of "Gutter Water", while replacing Raekwon with Roc Marciano, than anything. I prefer the original beat from Gutter Water but Roc kills this version. "You're not a shooter you're a Cuba Gooding Jr."

Main Attrakionz feat. ASAP Rocky - "Take 1" --- The videos for "Purple Swag" and "Peso" will definitely garner ASAP a lot more attention for the visuals alone, but "Take 1" has one of the more impressive verses I've heard from him. I'd really like to see him have a whole mixtape over Clams Casino production.

Danny Brown - "Outer Space" --- This song has been out for a few months, and was also included with Danny's recent mixtape XXX. I have a tough time picking my fave song off the project ("Pac Blood", "DNA", "Adderall Admiral", etc.) but I have to go with "Outer Space". Danny Brown is at his best when he's crazy and this is one of his craziest.

Kendrick Lamar - "ADHD" --- The music video came out a week ago and has rebirthed my liking for the song.
