The Coup, The Coup, The Coup... "Pick A Bigger Weapon" might be my favorite political hip-hop album ever.

So damn good. And the DJ scratches with her tits... what's not to like? Especially for the Bay Area folk in this thread (they're from Oakland).

You're obviously not listening to it then. Ignore the radio and television. You have to dig for gold.

I'm digging a lot of the international hiphop from brazil, mexico , Tanzania, Senegal.

You can find a lot of good stuff to listen to on these sites -

africanhiphop.com
africanhiphopradio.com
nomadicwax.com
magabo.com

Obviously can't understand the lyrics on most of these cuts , but I'm usually enjoying it all the same. Raw, hyped up delivery in swahili or wolof - dope!
