    I hate Wu-tang Forever. To me it marks the departure from their gritty sound. It's just too polished for my tastes. Everything they've done after Forever, with the exception of the Ghostface albums, has been less than stellar, to put it gently.

    To give this thread a new twist:

    What I dislike the most about the rap/ hip-hop I've heard so far is the absence of musicality. I hear very few great melodies, interesting chord progressions, crazy instrumental parts, or elaborate song structures - it's mostly minimalistic, beat-driven, and the hooks are usually sampled from some other artist. The only hip-hop I can think of that was more interesting was the Fugees and Lauryn Hill's solo stuff, and Faithless (although they were more a electronic/ pop/ crossover band who happened to have a rapper).

    Can anyone recommend good MUSICAL hip-hop?

    /agree os, though imho, they are now more identified with their gansta works unfortunately. on the upside, at the latest racial draft they got picked up by the asians so the blacks are off the hook ;).

    also, for some good stuff, check out the latest outkast almbum, "speakerboxxx". there are some solid, if unconventional, tracks on it. overall very well produced.
    if you like scratching, in addition to the invisible scratch picklez, there are some good works out there. look at mix master mike's "anti-theft device". the "scratch" album (soundtrack, various artists) has a great remake of herbie hancock's classic "rockit".

    edit: musical hip-hop, huh? try looking at the beatnuts, timberland-produced songs, faust and shortees original beats...

    Jurassic 5 rocked when I saw them. The Roots do everything (and I mean everything) well, some of the most sublime blues/rock blended with some great hiphop, rap and funk.
    Mike Skinner (aka The Streets) and Goldie Looking Chain have a rather british outlook which makes for a rather different take on the rap style. Be warned, GLC are welsh, so it sounds a little odd.

    Gangstarr is good MUSICAL Hiphop. Get 'Step in the Arena' (already mentioned), get high and get laid.
