I've been listening to a lot of 80s and very early 90s rap lately.
But I don't really know a lot of names... post some artists or your favorites.

Some of it is cheesy, like "Holiday", but that's kind of the sound I'm looking for.

Can't see what was posted because I'm on my phone but for that time period you're talking about the beginning of "gangster rap".

NWA
Ice Cude
Easy E
Ice Tea
Too Short

And then there's groups like Digital Underground.

Break the measure into eighth notes and every rhyme lands on the seventh eighth note. There's a pleasant nostalgia to it, but rap evolved like a motherfucker after the 80s.
