wnewport, thanks for the rec. i recently came across a group called Sandpeople, which turned me onto another duo, Wildcard & Dead Poet. Wow, I'm blown away by their lyricism. Very Sage Francis like in their ability to spit rhymes that make sense and flow. for me, this is a great time in true hip-hop, there is such a wealth of good groups and mc's (and dj's, can't forget the cats in the back) that are coming up and making themselves known on the underground.
