BUSDRIVER. check his myspace

This.

Also, check out Atmosphere, Aesop Rock, and Lupe Fiasco. He may be alittle mainstream, but he's a smart guy, and his songs have some deep meaning.

If you are rowing down the road in your canoe and your wagon wheel falls off. How many pancakes does it take to make a doghouse?

Green, because a vest has no sleeves.

Can't we all just get a bong?

Well, Flight Of The Conchords isn't supposed to be taken seriously at all.

If you're actually after some good non-gangsta rap, check these out:

listen to: Tribe called quest, bone thugs n harmony are fun.

Did you just mention Bone Thugs n Harmony after he specifically asked for something non-gangster?
Soon you will sit on the bench
of those who deny I have my soul
You sell a dream you create
Condemned by what you condemned before
Smooth are the words you sing down and high
Underground is your joy your laws

Immortal Technique!
And El-Producto.

My favorite rappers right there.
Also, try out: Blue Scholars, Yak Ballz, Sick Jacken and Psycho Realm, Cannibal Ox, and basically anything from Def Jux (a label run by Mr. El-P).
I think Aesop Rock is on that label. And a couple others that will be recommend to you.

way to contribute, and also he said non-mainstream, non-"bitches hos bling". Bone thugs are niether really. maybe a bit mainstream, but not really. Also try out MF Doom, and almost anything on the Stones Throw or Anticon record labels.
