Does anyone listen to Hip Hop outside the US?

Does anyone here listen to Hip Hop outside the US? If so what are your thoughts on it? I have to say one album that in my opinion is an underrated classic is London Posse's 'Gangster Chronicle'. That album came out in 1990 and was every bit as fresh any of the other Rap/Hip Hop coming out at the time including all the Native Tongues etc...

Of course this is all just my opinion and maybe I'm a tad biased as I'm British, but I thought it would be interesting to see what you guys think.

Orphans of Cush crew babeh
then canucks like Shad, POS, some Drake is good too although his hip hop is characteristically American.
