It doesn't sound familiar. I don't listen to music much anymore, much less hip-hop, so I know very little, honestly. Bop Alloy is a group I recently found and like though. : http://youtu.be/YwW0cjiG6Ko
Hip-hop is great. Too bad most of it sucks. Just about anything you ever heard on the radio probably falls under that category, so I doubt you could say that was a good period. Hell, mainstream hip-hop in recent years is worse than ever.
