Foo Hip-Hop help..

I am looking for a few quick suggestions on lesser known hip-hop artists. Over the past few months I have found Little Brother, Camp Lo, Aceyalone and not to mention a few more mainstream acts like Tribe, PUTS etc.. I am kinda striking out on Pandora off late so I figured I would ask the Foo Denizens.

Anyway I am all ears.

Edit :-to eliminate a few of the usual suspects, I am pretty familiar with the music of the roots, De La Soul, Mos Def, Hi Tek, Kweli, Lupe Fiasco, Jurassic 5..

Here's some that I've liked in the past (trying to leave out some of the more obvious, though I'm sure there are plenty here that are still pretty obvious):

Del Tha Funky Homosapien, Deltron 3030, Kool Keith (aka Dr. Octagon aka Dr. Dooom aka Black Elvis), Charizma & Peanut Butter Wolf (or even just Peanut Butter Wolf), Mobb Deep, Eric B and Rakim, EPMD, Jeru The Damaja, O.C., Organized Konfusion, Artifacts, Pete Rock & CL Smooth, Gang Starr, Souls of Mischief, Blackalicious, Black Sheep, Boogie Down Productions/KRS-One, Brand Nubian, Capone -N- Noreaga, Gravediggaz, The Beatnuts, etc.

this is what happens when you mix a pretty good 90's "punk band" drummer with a pretty "good" top 40 "hip-hop" artist ...or something
