I know this is a Guitar forum and most of you will probably hate rap music or anything which is fare enough but i think everyone should listen to as many styles of music as possible and i love hip hop aswell as other styles i was just wondering if anyone knows any hip hop which is kinda like Low by flo rida that kind of upbeat hip hop would be awsome.

cheers

I don't really know who flo rida is but have you ever listened to MF Doom? Particularly the album Danger Doom. Especially if you like DJ Dangermouse.

Kanye West has some good upbeat stuff, especially his new album.

DMX is pretty good for catchy stuff without being too stereotypically ghetto.

If you want some real hip-hop poetry though check out Ghostface Killah and the GZA, particularly the album Liquid Swords.
