Ever looked up "New Wave" at Barnes and Noble and found that the cds are either from 1978 to 1988, or are Greatest Hits from 1989-1991, or are 2001+ ?  I like how New Wave is coming back.

there is alternative rap (many rap groups fall into that catorgory, Jurassic five, Black Eyed Peas, The Roots, Kanye, etc)....theyve always been an alternative rap group, apart from the mainstream....I mean, Pauls Boutique didnt have commerical success, but is still considered a legendary album on the indie scene

Yup, indie rap.  The only good rap since 1997 or so pretty much.  "Licensed to Ill" and "Ill Communication" sold well, as well as "Hello Nasty".

You go on with your bad self, Billy! Funny enough, the first time I ever heard/saw the Black Eyed Peas live was at a rave (I think it was in 1998?)...not exactly "gangsta," is it? ;)

True, they also sold very well.  Beasties have only gotten more cool since 1986, although I've heard there's a lot of haters.  But that's true with any band.
