Can anyone recommend me some good mellow rap music? Mellow rap as in, 21 questions - 50 Cent, Hate it or Love it - 50 cent, maybe some good mellow R&B as well?
And it's gotta have some nice melodies in the back, good instrumentals.

I've been getting into rap lately. I've heard some Immortal Technique too, some rappers are very talented. I want to hear a rap that's about something, not just senseless ego rants.

Rules: No flaming, inb450izgayLOL, etc...

Since there isn't a rap section I thought I'd ask here

Jay-Z is awesome, especially if you're looking for an interesting instrumental section. Check out his MTV Unplugged album, in which The Roots play the instrumental parts.

...modes and scales are still useless.

Sorry, it's compulsive. Check out old Snoop Dogg, or really anyone from the early '90s. They were all high at the time so they really couldn't write anything that wasn't laid back.
