zissou

Two turntables and a microphone...

I've been promising to put together a Hiphop For Beginners album for my brother for about 6 months now and still haven't gotten around to it. For those of you with quality taste in rap/hiphop music, what tracks would you suggest to suck someone into the world of beats and rhymes? What artist sucked you into the genre?

Clarify: This boy currently listens to all of the indie rock stuff that I've stumbled across over the last few years, so he's got a pretty solid background in the vast alternative rock world, with a leaning towards punk music the last time I checked. Also, anything from DJs is welcome as well (DJ Shadow, RJD2, etc.).
