    Any rapper from 1985-1989.

    I'm not saying its bad, I'm actually a big fan, and they definetly do have their own, awesome style.

    But they do borrow heavily from Golden Age rap.

    And their latest album sucks. :( But did you catch Cut Chemist's solo album? He's second only to Grandmaster Flash.
