    I will probably get made fun of for this, but the one artist that got me into Rap was Cypress Hill, I still like them.

    2Pac!

    Everybody keeps saying Eminem.
    Most people here must have the same age...

    He also had a big impact on me. But later on in my life.

    2Pac and maybe the Beastie Boys were the first.

    It's kinda funny that Em is the first guy for me too, i hadn't heard much tracks from him and the ones that i heard were songs like Ass Like That. Then i decided to check out some other tracks from him and found When I'm Gone, shit did hit me so hard that i started to listen to him like an ass, song itself isn't that good anymore since i got more in to the rap.

    Why would you get made fun of because liking Cypress Hill?
    They're still dope as fuck...
    That's what you listen to to learn to smoke weed... They're undeniable!

    "My name is" and "The Real Slim Shady" where the first rap songs i thought which were amazing. To be honest, eminem didn't really speak to me. After that Lollipop and Get money came out. Then I started listening Lil Wayne. After that, I started listening to every other rapper and style (oldskool mainstream drill boombap etc.)

    I started listening to Eminem for a long time, then I started listening to more and more rappers, I loved DMX at the time, we had a pretty big group that would get together after school and listen to new rapper that we'd learn about. It was a great time of discovery

    2pac did it for me. My brother had his whole album and had it on repeat. Then it grew on me. 2pac was a really good lyricist. I could relate to the stories and that really changed my life. Some rappers really know how to get to your heart and 2pac did that for me. Even his acting was good. Then I really got interested in and checked others like Will Smith and Eminem, etc.

    When I was 13 years old a friend of mine introduced me to French rap group IAM. The first rap song I heard was Petit Frère http://youtu.be/INuD2D7R8bk These guys are lyrical genius, I'm not even kidding. Deep, thoughtful lyrics that haunt you. Here's a record they did with Wu Tang http://youtu.be/lA2zoE_Yww8
    I love this beat so much.

    I can't hear Cypress Hill without wanting to smoke something. It's automatic in my brain. I'm sure I'm not the only one

    I would have to say Ice Cube/EPMD here.

    I used to listen to some of my dad's old CDs in my basement and he had two CD's from these artists and I loved the cover art and style to the music. I listened to those albums so much. Those were what got me into listening to rap as a whole. Then Eminem was the artist that got me to listen to it outside of those two CD's. He was so good, I couldn't get enough.

    I first started liking rap when I first heard Tupac and maybe also Bone Thugs 'n' Harmony. At the time, they were at the peak of their career and I find them very talented although I think I can relate and understand the lyrics of Tupac a lot more.

    Tupac's Me against the world is what really jumped out at me. The level of charisma, intellect, & lyrical genius from that era really captivated me.
