+1. i got hooked on Madvillain because of a poster on here. can't remember now who it was. anyway, the stuff that they play on the radio and in clubs IS all cookie cutter garbage these days. the stuff you listed above is not common knowledge to casual music listeners.
back to em though, i agree that he is a great story teller, and that in my mind is the measure of greatness in hiphop music. when i listen to ems songs, i can literally see everything happening in my head-almost like watching a music video without a tv. it's not about 22" rims, iced out watches, and gold grills. i don't like the voice he uses on his latest album, but i still find myself in awe of some of the lyrics.
MF DOOM/Madvillain/DANGERDOOM/Viktor Vaughn/King Geedorah (all the same rapper under different aliases and in some cases collaborations with different producers) has got my vote. Sometimes can get pretty off-the-wall but has a sick flow and is always entertaining. Madvillainy and Vaudeville Villain especially I have to include in any discussion of the best hip-hop albums of the decade.
