Some good stuff, some bad stuff, has in every genre.
Some good stuff in my opinion (I never was a hip hop fan, rap even less) :
Beastie Boys
Busdriver
Gorillaz
Beck (even if unclassifiable he do rap)
Loco Locass (quebecois)
Wyclef Jean
Sean Paul
TTC (french)

Probably a lot more I could like if I got to know them...

There is some great and talented hiphop artists out there, to name a few: Common, Jurassic 5, The Roots, Talib Kweli, Dead Prez, Mos Def.

I like the artists who have a positive attitude and a positive mission. I don't care for the hip hop that's all about "smackin b**ches and f**k'n hos.

I love either old school (ie Public enemy, NWA) or more progressive rappers like The Roots, Aesop Rock, Mos Def.
In general, I wish rap would be more creative and less formulaic. But I wish that about country and most 'radio' tunes.

I think unfortunately the general public are exposed to MAINSTREAM rap/hip hop/r&b and this severely affects their opinion of the entire genre/genres, which is like saying you've heard My Chemical Romance and think that all punk sucks, [oversight].
I'm heavily influenced by the people themselves and the music-making process, not just the output which is why I gravitated towards the Beastie Boys in my mid-teens.
I think people could be a lot more open-minded and do some real research before they make snap decisions of a type of music based on an MTV-type ambassador [Soulja boy, tell em].
A few of my favourite artists have already been mentioned but i'd recommend the more funk or jazz influenced acts [US3, Digable Planets, A Tribe Called Quest, The Roots, Dilated Peoples, early DJ Shadow, Madlib] before tackling brilliant but lyric-heavy artists [Jurassic 5, Aesop Rock, Atmosphere, Sage Francis, Mos Def].
I've left out so many but this is getting too long, haha.

Like in every music there's good and bad. But the thing with that kind of music is that you mostly see the bad and it gives a bad image to Rap and Hip-hop.
