I don't usually listen to rap. I listen to it occasionally, but it's usually just single songs that I like, rather than whole artists. Actually, most of my exposure to the genre comes from Girl Talk. Then, around last E3, I fell down the Giant Bomb-induced rabbit hole that was Kanye West's "Power". It truly is the Guile's Theme of rap (or hip-hop, I've never been able to distinguish the two). Anyway, after a few months soundtracked partially by a arrogant rapper singing over Crimson King, I decided that... maybe I should find more of this. Rap, I mean.
Unfortunately, I don't have a whole lot of money to spend on songs I may or may not like. What other songs/albums are worth listening to?
Edit: I apologize if I sound like somebody who knows next to nothing about modern music. If you feel that way, I guarantee you, your judgement is pretty accurate.
