I find that intriguing, and would be curious as to how many other drummers love hip hop. I think the major reason I am not into hip hop is because I am a drummer, and dislike the monotony of the percussion beat in the songs (this applies to many newer pop songs as well) Also, hip hop came into being when I was well into my 30's, so there is probably a generational thing going on here as well.

When Ton Loc came out with Wild Thing and Funky Cold Medina, it was sort of like hip-hop, but had some drums and guitar licks to make it more palatable to me:
