    Momus/Kahimi Karie - Stars Forever (Le Grand Magistery)/K.K.K.K.K.(Le Grand Magistery)

    And You Don't Stop - These student DJs are hip-hop professors.

    When the Sugar Hill Gang's "Rapper's Delight" first joined the words "hip" and "hop" for a nationwide radio audience in 1979, Mike Merriman was little more than a bundle of gelatinous, fetal goo. And in 1983, when Run DMC's "Sucker MCs" led even thos...

    Angie Stone - Black Diamond (Arista)

    In terms of pop music, originality is often a more vital consideration in the short term than it is years down the line. The Gap Band, for instance, obviously ripped off the Parliament-Funkadelic sound on many of its most successful songs, but when y...
