    Look up some of your favourite artists discographies and just listen.

    That's what I did. Plus, I have a friend that's really into hip hop and he gave me a ton of albums from the 90's. Classics.

    Not exactly sure what you mean..
    You can listen to the radio, check sites that talk about the new/hot music, watch music channels on TV stuff like that. Or you can go on sites like Last.fm, put in artists that you like and you can then find similar artists.

    Music have to grow on you and you have to grow on music. Music expresses your personality and emotion. To find new artist and new music that you can relate to is to use Pandora app. Type in one of your favorite songs in and it will play the song that are similar to it. That's how I got my RnB pop rap and hip hop modern done.

    Discographies, LPs, Pandora, Lala.com, Last.fm, Vevo.com, YouTube, Billboard.com, Wikipedia, and Google are all excellent resources.

    Again, listen to Discographies, check out Last.fm or any of the other sites the other users posted. Or.. you can even ask your friends.

    Haha, yea sometimes I feel the same way. You can just try and remember the song/artist that they say, then check them out on youtube. I actually did this once, my friend and I exchanged iPods and then I took all his songs, so then I got a bunch of new songs
