I don't agree... I think the best MC right now is Vast Aire from Cannibal Ox (Def Jux) :)

Jeru used to be the man, but his albums just don't kick anymore :(

MF Doom rules the mic too :D

I think the chances are high that you've never heard of my favorite artists:

Karsten Koch
B.E.A.S.T
Scirocco
Skaven
Purple Motion

These artists release their music in module format. I'd say compared to MP3, modules are oddballs. Unlike MP3, there's a huge variety of formats that fall under the module category. The four most common are MOD, S3M, XM and IT. If you want to download modules, click here. If you need a player, try this one or this one.

All I can listen to at the moment is the Jedi Mind Tricks but thanks to a pretty diverse collection on the iPod this is always changing. In fact, just as I'm typing this I'm reminded that I just went for a run to The RZA's Fatal from Blade III, a seriously inspiring song for anyone trying to get fit. ;)
