    The one or ones previously mentioned or implied, specifically:
    a. Used as a relative pronoun in a clause that provides additional information about the antecedent: my house, which is small and old.
    b. Used as a relative pronoun preceded by that or a preposition in a clause that defines or restricts the antecedent: that which he needed; the subject on which she spoke.
    c. Used instead of that as a relative pronoun in a clause that defines or restricts the antecedent: The movie which was shown later was better.

    pronoun referring to a thing, not a person.

    Just cause you don't like it doesn't mean its not Hip Hop. Personally I can't listen to 99.999999% of RM.com's AEH artists but thats not me saying they're not Hip Hop. Macklemore is Hip Hop pure and simple. I can hear his passion for this art when he's on the mic.

    I Said Hey -
    But if you love Hip Hop I bet
    Its more or less for the same reason
    This is it when you spit you exist in that moment
    And if you're sick with that gift you then rip it when you perform it
    Then all the shit that you live begins to lift off your shoulders
    And the audience gets to experience where your soul is
    The most amazing feeling rocking a crowd to your anthem
    To the front to the back with their motherfucking hands up


    Claiming The City -
    Now every face tells a different story, a different message
    Now how can we judge the book when we don't know the beginning
    We don't know what turned 'em to the bottle, or started injectin'
    We just see dirty clothes and another bum beggin'
    Whatta bout the kid who was an addict the second that his mom was pregnant
    Or the young girl who was raped and stripped up, everything sacred
    Who now stands downtown walkin' on the block pacin'
    cause the only way she knows how to make it, is gettin' naked
    We don't want to face it
    And it being the fact that the government created the ghetto and gave it crack
    To oppress immigrants and blacks, and give 'em more of a set back
    Like the last 500 years wasn't enough to accomplish that
    Now look at the homeless rate, and tell me to my face the race
    Doesn't play an intricate part in your fate in the United States
    Now think about your home, and the place that you sleep
    And the homeless, who only have the concrete

    Church -
    This is my offering card
    The only thing I have to offer is bars
    The only time I felt like I was talking to God
    Was in my Walkman walking with Nas
    Alright see I be going to Sunday school every week
    In the back trying to read, but see that something was off
    Maybe it was 'cause I was trying to huddle in the yard
    Preacher didn't connect when he would mumble the Psalms
    I was in my head and I was bustin' with Pac
    Takin' off my wifebeater and getting drunk in the park
    After that part, I found God, it wasn't Jesus
    Some psilocybin and the ink released him
    I began to hold communion every time my music came out the speakers I used it
    And it fuled my movement I believed in, voice of reason, just me and my Adidas
    And I could achieve it, I put my hand over my heart, pledge allegiance
    I solemnly swear by the faith that raised my since Kool Herc dropped the needle
    The South Bronx, that's hip-hop's Egypt
    The word of our God is manipulated and twisted by the same system
    That is infiltrated and falsely interpreted Jesus
    One life, one love, one God, It's us, treated your neighbor how you would want to be treated
    The universal laws of God, don't look too far it's right here, us human beings
    The spirits right here and I don't have to see it
    Now every time I want to connect with God I put my headphones on
    Then I nod, grab my pen, my pad, let it seep in, in
    And that's my process
    And God's always watching
    Got God in my Walkman
    Go ahead and top that


    If this man's not Hip Hop then nothing I have on my computer is.

    And I know this isn't a recommend me thread but I feel the need to up CunninLynguists. You mentioned liking artists putting some thought into their albums. A Piece of Strange does this quite well where it "tells the tale of the pathway to and from sin" as well as their last album Oneirology which focuses on Dreams. It also helps that Kno's production skills are outstanding. Easily the best to come out of the South in the past decade as well as the best artist to appear in a GRB (Deacon The Villain) and go on to make great music.
