Couldn't agree more. Family Business is my favorite rap song and is in my top 3 for favorite overall song ever. Kanye transcended rap & hip-hop with this song to make one of the deepest songs. Man, I wish he would write like this again. Not that I don't love some of his new stuff, but I could listen to every track on College Dropout & Late Registration on repeat for hours.
Other than that, nowadays I'm big on Mumford & Sons, Zac Brown Band, & Avett Brothers. I've also been a lifelong fan of The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Lynyrd Skynyrd, & Journey.

See what you hit; hit what you see.
Definitely check out their albums. Lonerism is maybe my favorite album of 2012.
8Ball & MJG ??
I second that
Man, the lyrics are the first thing that got me. Then it was the beat.
But the thing that got me to the best ever status was the production. If you listen closely, and tune in to how many different layers and the complication of the beat itself, this song is just too incredibly done.
My favorite artist is 2pac, so it is hard for me to say that, because I want something like Thug Mansion or Life Goes On or They Don't Care About Us to go up there, but the overall quality of that song trumps anything I have ever heard.
Love "Hey Mamma" and "On My Way Home" on that album, give up for some Common.
And i use to be a huge "Graduation" apologist, thinking it was the best Kanye album. I heard "Big Brother" and threw a cat out the window it was so good.
One day i got smart though, and went and listened to "College Dropout" again. It was stupid good.
These songs are on there:
All Falls Down
Never Let Me Down (J Ivy shows up both K.W. and Jay Z on this song, talk about incredible lyricist)
Through the Wire
We Don't Care
Get Em High
I mean my goodness, that is just unfair right there, and I am not sure I have heard a better rap album since. Which again, I always wanted to say "All Eyez On Me" topped that list, but this was too good.
36 mafia and other rap along with 311, sublime, slightly Stoopid, Jack Johnson, and some Marley
IF you like Dawes, they're playing in Knoxville next weekend at Rhythm and Blooms. Very good lineup. I'll be there. I'm mostly a roots/Americana listener. Outlaw Country on Sirius XM. 89.5-2 FM in JC is great station.
After a game a few years ago, I just happened to stop by local bar in Knoxville, Roman Reese was playing, he has been a favorite ever since!! If y'all in k ville don't know of him, check him out on I tunes and support him, he's awesome!!
At the risk of sounding like an old country codger, I will chime in with:
"Old School"! A strong defense wins championships!
Your team. All the time.
Toby Mac is good. Tomlin is a legend but I've never been hooked on his music. I'm a bigger fan of Jimmy Needham and if you're interested in praise music, it's tough to be Hillsong.
Podcasts are new to me. I have a few saved that I pull up on occassion but I've never listened to a weekly podcast. Which would you recommend most? Does Ravi Zacharias have podcast? How do I listen to these things? The ones I have saved I downloaded from itunes.
Are you the same beatlemaniac from the /cfb subreddit? We need more 247ers over there.
Regarding music, today its Solitude Aeturnus, Judas Priest, Jimi Hendrix's Blues album, and Merle Haggard's Strangers.
Lecrae all day.
Been on a '70's southern rock binge this week with Atlanta Rhythm Section, 38 Special, Outlaws, Marshall Tucker, Molly Hatchet, Charlie Daniels, & Lynyrd Skynyrd.

My music tastes are so across the board that I almost have to list music I don't like. I like rock, classic rock, alternative rock, most pop, country, jazz, R&B, New Age, reggae and even classical. I'm not crazy about hip hop or opera.
If you force me to pick all-time favorites, I would go with Pink Floyd, Tom Petty, Garth Brooks, David Arkenstone (New Age) and Bob Marley.
+1 for Pink Floyd, there is not a bad album to be found in their discography in my opinion. Even after Waters-less Division Bell is great.
Some more for me:

If you have the chance, see Roger Waters perform "The Wall." It is, without a doubt, the best concert I have ever attended. The special effects are awesome. Waters sounds so pure and perfect. He even does a great job on all the Gilmour numbers.
