I'm not sure if you meant only artists that came out after '05 but J. Period did a great mixtape called The Messengers that featured K'Naan covering Bob Marley, Fela Kuti, & Bob Dylan. If you want songs after 2005 here's a playlist I recently put together...
1. Consequence, My Way Home
2. Theopolis London, Going Over Seas (Hasan Insane Sade Remix)
3. Jay Electronica, Jazzmatazz
4. eLZhi, Undefeated Freestyle
5. Gang Starr, Zonin (Cookin Soul Remix)
6. De La Soul, The Return of DST
7. MED f/ Talib Kweli, Classic
8. Talib Kweli f/ Mos Def & Jay Electronica, Just Begun
9. Wiz Khalifa, The Race
10. Nas, Foul Breeze
11. Nas, The World
Oh & check out DJ Honda. Specifically the collabs he does with Jeru The Damaga, Mos Def, & other American artists. He's a Japanese DJ. There's also another Japanese DJ Deckstream who did a track with Mos Def called Life is Good. If you want instrumentals check out a DJ named Najubes. He has some really chill stuff however he passed away earlier this year...
I say this so many times but rap today is like hair metal bands back in the 80's. There are some great artists out there today but a lot of these people will look back on some of stuff they listened to & think why did they ever listen to that...
Yes, yes, yes, thanks. I just picked 2005 because it seems that after The Minstrel Show came out there has been a lack of soul. I was listening to that Mood album the other day...they don't make beats like that anymore.
