Default Great hip hop drummers?

I know that most hip hop music these days is produced electronically, but there are a few groups out there who have begun recording and performing with traditional instrumentation. So, who do you guys think are the greatest hip hop drummers out there?

I'll get the obvious one out of the way now: ?uestlove from The Roots is probably on the list.

Yeah Quest is probably the best known.Dunno how old you are,but its always been sampled or drum machine.I was suprised back in the 90's Snoop was on SNL doing lodi dodi w/ a live band.
Sly and Robbie have played w/ a few hip hop groups.

I love putting on a hip hop album and just jamming along w/ it,super fun and pretty easy to follow.Been playing alot of Beastie Boys lately.And that is like AC/DC and Led Zep samples.

I'm a 45yr old newbie(drummer) metalhead.Been playing guitar for over 30yrs,had a few bands that did mostly original speed/thrash metal,a few old school Slayer and Metallica covers.But w/ my old ass and lack of competent drummers I decided to get a decent Ddrum kit and do all my recording myself.

Jim Gordon was definitely one of the hippest and most sampled!

Not sure if he qualifies as a drummer (he may be thought of as a drum programmer), but J Dilla put out some truly amazing stuff during his unfortunately short life.

Well I'll make the obvious Royster Jr mention, but he's not necessarily a hip hop drummer I suppose, it just happens to be his current gig.

Second Chris Dave. What a player!

Aaron Spears and Ron Bruner Jr are serious gospel chops players.

Amon Tobin's drum programming / sampling is a good listen.

Madlib plays drums on his various Yesterday's New Quintet projects (credited as Otis Jackson, Jr.), but I don't know how much of his hip-hop output is real vs. sampled drums.

Tony Royster Jr. and Aaron Spears are the best drummers I've heard playing hip hop.

Oxymoron? Yeah a lot of hip hop is just drum machines and simple grooves, but there are uber talented drummers in just about any genre.

This is a pretty recent sweet performance of Tony Royster during a live hip hop show at the famous Sayer's Club in Hollywood. Check it out at the link below if you don't believe me, especially the drum solo at 1:37...

Deantoni Parks is one of my favourite. He played on most of Flying Lotus's 'You're Dead'. Great innovative approach to beats and fantastic groove.
