Longing for the glory days of A Tribe Called Quest?

Maybe you're not...
But I miss what rap music used to be (so humor me with this one if you could care less).

And then I came across these guys:

Little Brother

Apparently they've been out for about 5 years. I've only discovered them in the past 6 months or so (thru the invaluable site I threw in our links). Although I don't read the Source, I don't live under a total rock when it comes to what's out. It's too bad all of these shitty, commercially driven "artists" are pushed down our throats these days, hiding what's good out there. Not sure how I didn't find them sooner, but now that I have, I feel obligated to share them with the public, whether or not they want to hear it.
I won't bore you in details about why they're good/refreshing, etc. Put their recently released "free" mixtape" in your I-Pod and find out fo' yo' self.

Where have all the good rappers gone?

I resurrected my old cd of the Pharcyde's "Bizzare Ride II the Pharcyde" and "Labcabincalifornia". Both are old, but in the same ballpark at times as Tribe.

These guys are good though.
