5 Hip-Hop Artists not named Lil Wayne or Gucci Mane That you Should Listen To

Some of you need to expand your horizons when it comes to listening to music, because there is more to hip-hop than Lil Wayne and Gucci Mane.  Here are 5 current hip-hop artist or groups that you should take time and listen to, you might like what you hear.

1. Lupe Fiasco- Lupe is a Muslim from the streets of Chicago; discovered by Jay-Z.

2.  The Roots- I first started listening to The Roots when I was a junior in high school, and they continue to produce quality albums.

3. Talib Kweli- Talib just recently released an album with Hi-Tek, and also collaborated with Mos Def when they formed Black Star.  Hopefully we will see a new Blackstar album soon.

4. Mos Def- Not only is Mos Def a great hip-hop artist but he has also starred in some movies, most notably The Italian Job.

5. Big Boi (Outkast)-  Big Boi recently released a solo album that is very good, but nothing beats Outkast in their prime.  I recommended you start listening to Outkast on the regular.

COMING SOON- Alternatives to listening to Nickelback
