So, how many of the above you heard of??

Hip-hop/rap, when done properly and done well, is urban street poetry. The best example of this is Skinnyman's only LP 'The Council Estate of Mind'. It's raw, unpolished, not like the shit Kanye, Jay Z et al come out with. I'm only really into underground stuff.

Trip-hop wise, you need to be looking at The Shamen, The KLF, Nightmares on Wax, Lionrock, Up, Bustle and Out, Baby Mammoth, Fila Brasilia, Coldcut, 9 Lazy 9, Funky Porcini, Evil Nine, etc

Hit me up if you want more suggestions.
