...Help.
If you have no starting points whatsoever you just need to listen to the basic essentials. Start with these:

Public Enemy - It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back
NWA - Straight Outta Compton
Wu Tang Clan - Enter the Wu tang (36 Chambers)
Nas - Illmatic
A Tribe Called Quest - The Low End Theory
GZA - Liquid Swords
Beastie Boys - Paul's Boutique

fuck forgot about wu-tang. Yea GZA's Liquid Swords and the 36 Chambers album is essential too. Raekwon's Only Built 4 Cuban Linx is good too, but don't expect to understand a word of it.

36 chambers is the greatest hip-hop album of all time and the only one you'll ever need *drops mic and walks out*

Was gonna add some more, but this pretty much nails for it a basic starting point.

The first two Wu-Tang albums are awesome and the last three are 50/50 good/nothing special.

If you want to hear good new hip hop...listen to The Game or Kendrick Lamar.
