    Who do you guys think are among the most intelligent socially aware hip hop artists out there today?

    Well, judging by this thread, it's a toss-up between Lil Wayne and Drake.

    Talib Kweli. He was on the Colbert Report a few weeks ago and was promoting his album and some other cause. Pretty cool guy IMO.

    Big Sean sucks. But then again so does Drake. And anyone who likes either of them.

    If you're listening to hip-hop for the "intelligent socially aware" lyrics, go read a sociology book instead.

    I'm a music critic (and hip-hop is my area of "expertise") and I'm a big Drake fan. Big Sean isn't bad.

    Why do you insist on always listing MIA as hip hop?

    finally agree with you on something, The Roots have been doing something that has been long missing from hip hop and that's live instrumentation.

    If you think this is what the majority of hip-hop is, maybe the genre isn't for you.
