Ay yo my girl left me and the only thing keeping me going is digging into deeper, lesser known hip-hop, any recs?

This might just get auto-mod'd, idk, but I'm pretty fucked up and the only thing I'm really getting enjoyment out of anymore is finding new favorite songs, artists and albums. There is almost nothing as special as finding THAT artist, and examples of these for me in the last couple years have been (yeah im late to the party on many of these guys):

MF DOOM, (RIP) on Christmas night 2018, where I heard Madvillainy for the first time and listened to it three times in a row with a massive fucking smile on my face.

JPEGMAFIA, who then soon after released All My Heroes, one of my favorite albums since then.

MAVI, with Eye/I and I/Nation being one of my favorite songs of all time.

Recently, I heard Clipping. for the first time and had my mind melted, loving Enlacing and Check The Lock.

Quelle Chris, Westside Boogie, MIKE, Flatbush Zombies, and more are all artists I never would have heard without digging, and though some of the above are becoming more and more mainstream, they're all mostly artists I cant make much conversation about with friends. This is all without mentioning how I've begun to dig into older rap, artists like Rakim, Inspectah Deck, Talib Kweli, and more, or how I probably only found Freddie Gibbs, JID, and Denzel because of this subreddit.

Any of you guys have any deep recs, similar to artists I listed, or unrelated? Or any stories of the first time you had your mind blown by an artist who immediately made your top five? Im still fucked up over DOOM, especially in hand with my ex leaving me. Life sucks but hip-hop is rad. Just bored and cant sleep and need new music. Sorry if this shit is rambly. Take it easy homies.
