It is not a definitive list; some bands I've seen more than once but don't know how many times and I'm sure there's plenty of bands I've missed. But hopefully I've not missed too many...

6 Feb 2009, 23:39 by EyokiI can't believe it's taken me this long to discover Outkast! I followed a recommendation on iTunes after buying some tracks by UK Hip-Hop artist Sway and was shocked at how good the Speakerboxxx / The Love Below and Stankonia albums both are. So good in fact that it's impossible to pick a favourite track.
The Speakerboxxx / The Love Below split-album is particularly fascinating: one minute i think i prefer the Prince-like second half, for example She Lives In My Lap, and the next i'm sure it's the more obviously hip-hoppish first half that i like best. Can't make up my mind at all!
By contrast my favourite track by Sway is definitely F Ur X (feat. $tush) - not that there aren't other good ones, but there's just something about this particular song. It's like listening to a couple of teenagers arguing on a London bus, but far more charming. And like much of Sway's music, very funny.
Another track i like is Champagne Lifestyle by another UK hip-hop artist, Blak Twang. …

25 Jun 2008, 08:16 by CheezPizzaA lot of hip hop is great. There is great hip hop everywhere. West, East, South, Europe, Japan, and even Canada. Throwing out a whole region's output of hip hop is lame and pretty much makes you a douche bag. If you voice your opinion and it reads: "TEH SOUTH SUCKS! LOL LIZEN TO ATMOSPHERE," you are turning off fans of southern rap to Atmosphere (which is a good thing haha, but I digress) because they see that idiots like you listen to them. If you make the blanket statement that a geographical area sucks at making rap music, then you should probably shut the fuck up. You can only make a statement like that if you've listened to all the music from whatever region you're complaining about. But noone can do that. So don't make statements like that.
Here are 10 good songs from different regions of space son
Messy Marv - Wakin' Em Up
Ice-T - New Jack Hustler
Cypress Hill - I Ain't Goin' Out Like That
Aceyalone - The Guidelines
Kurupt - Who Ride Wit Us

30 Apr 2006, 11:07 by samsaundersBigger Than Hip Hop Tour: University of Leeds, Thursday 27 April 2006
Son Richard and I went to the University of Leeds Student Union on Thursday night. The Bigger Than Hip Hop Tour (supported by Love Music Hate Racism) was in town.
Everything about the event was different for me. The time was radically anti-work. (we got home after three in the morning). In all the time we were there I didn’t see a single person I knew. (rare) Once the show started there were no breaks (unheard of). The crowd had a normal number of black faces, and felt more like being in Leeds City Centre than in the weird white ghettoes of Leeds indie rock. There were people walking round wearing hip hop styles that actually looked very comfortable and very cool, stripped of all High Street retailer tackiness. The sound was pretty poor (that was a shame) and the lighting was pretty lazy and automated dance floor tat (that made it impossible for me to take any decent photos with my very basic camera). …
