Straight Outta Philly, the originator of gangster rap himself, Schoolly D, who interestingly also worked on the Hunger Force Theme. His first four albums are all great examples of the hip-hop old school, though also suffers the same lyrical limitations of the time, his later albums don't help out either. But the reason I keep coming back is the beats. Yeah, Schoolly was okay on the mic, but put him behind the boards and you got yourself one of the best of the old school generation. Just go check out his single "Gucci Time", you'll know what I mean.
