I don't know why yall white people hatin' on "Fiddy"....ok,i'm kidding...I can't stand 50 Cent. He's such a marketing gimmick...You all here about the "deal" he made with Kanye West?
I miss Tupac and Biggie...I haven't been the same since,but I have some favorites:
The Game(more talent than 50 will ever have),
UGK(preferably Bun B...Pimp C is garbage IMO),
Cash Money..B.G.,Lil Wayne(the old years with Mannie Fresh beats),
Three Six Mafia(pre-Oscar..lol),
Young Jeezy(at least the music and beats..he gets on my nerves after a bit),
I have a trend of liking most artists until they go "mainstream" and somehow forget the talent and fire that got them there.
