    Id have to go with Aceyalone or Sage Francais underground wise. The abstract hip hop style obviously stems from a poetic nature. Commercially, I always thought Cee-Lo to be poetic in nature!

    Ex: Cee-Lo

    Yo, I'm quite single, and occaisionally I mingle
    But aside from all the rest, she sparks my interest
    No, ma'am, I don't know you
    Just offering the common respect I feel I owe you
    Also, some conversation, companionship, common-ground and common-sense
    There's no such thing as coincidence in, me finding you here
    And I really hate screaming in your ear, so some other time, OK?
    I waited a day *phone rings* Hello?
    This is Carlito from a couple of days ago, you sound tired
    Forgive me if I've called you too late
    But what better time to relate mind-state? Where could I begin?
    Hasn't anyone ever told you you got beautiful skin?
    You're more than welcome, what do you desire within?
    I just, wanna be, there's no need to put titles on you and me
    Those are limitations, living and learning are our only obligations
    Equality, honesty, independence, intelligence, emotion and devotion
    Humbly seeking to hear God when he's speaking
    At one time, my mind, just, couldn't conceive
    A woman had to dress a certain way to believe
    But, in the same breath, a-llow me to say
    That, if you believed young lady, you wouldn't dress that way
    And I, was attracted to your class, I couldn't see all yo' ass
    And, I was very content, and you deserved every complement
    Now, remember our indifferences make us the same
    You gotta have some game, or, many of you
    won't even be able to take care of yourself, uh
    And Love, when I look at you, I see my reflection
    So I offer my love, affection and protection
    Shawty, you dead fine, but the bottom-line is
    You're still my sister

    I think A+'s "All I See" was poetic.

    Um, Common, Talib Kweli (of course), Mos Def (I love this man! lol). And I think "The Roots" get pretty deep, too.
