Non RHH: Regarding different Genre's of Music?
I'm trying to expand my music collection, about 90% of the CD's I have are Hip Hop, the rest are Reggae and Punk, just Bob, Damian, and Bad Brains, I'm gonna try and begin listening to more reggae, Jazz, Classical, and punk.
So recommend me your favorite artist and album from these genres (Reggae, Jazz, and Classical)

For Jazz (I have 100's of jazz tracks but few albums.)
Check out anything by
Thelonious Monk - Straight, No Chaser
Miles Davis - Birth Of The Cool
Charlie Parker - I have more live sets than albums....
Artie Shaw - Anything with his big band
Benny Goodman - He didn't write a lot of original material, So you might have heard his songs elsewhere.
Billie Holliday - Especially the track "Strange Fruit" - Lady In Satin
Some of the artists i mentioned are technically BeBop which isn't as straight laced as jazz but all are worth a look.
Punk..(I ain't really got that much and i don't listen to enough to discover unsigned/obscure punk bands)
The Ramones (I wanna live is a good track)
The Misfits (Die! Die! my darling is my favourite punk song)
The Clash (You probably have the record "London Burning")
Bunny Wailer - Blackheart man
Steel Pulse - True Democracy
Various Artists - Rockers Soundtrack

Bob Marley - Exodus
Bob Marley - Kaya
Peter Tosh - Legalize It

Okay, picking 10 songs across all genres is impossible enough, so to try to actually put these in an order would be ridiculous. Robert Johnson - Crossroads Don Mclean - American Pie Bob Marley - One Love Bob Dylan - Like a Rolling Stone Marvin Gaye - What's Going On John Lennon - Imagine "House of the Rising Sun" (unknown original artist) Michael Jackson - Thriller Pink Floyd - Comfortably Numb Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five - The Message

May I also suggest looking into the songs hip hop artist sample in their songs? You will find countless gems (especially if you listen to jazz-inspired hip hop). That's how I found alot of artists.
Reggae: Barrington Levy, Gregory Isaacs, Cutty Ranks, Shabba Ranks, Inner Circle, Beenie Man
Jazz: Wes Montgomery, John Coltrane, Vince Guaraldi (the same guy that composed "A Charlie Brown Christmas"), Miles Davis, Charles Mingus
Not too much into classical.
Punk: I'm a big fan of The Ramones
RHH: Not familiar with Atmosphere's music.

definetly get into the Miles Davis Quintet. they released 4 live albums in 1956
Relaxin' with the Miles Davis Quintet
Steamin' with the Miles Davis Quintet
Workin' with the Miles Davis Quintet
Cookin' with the Miles Davis Quintet
good stuff. John Coltrane plays Tenor Sax for this group. I have "Cookin" and i got "Kind of Blue (1959)" by Miles as well. "Blue Train" and "Giant Steps" are good from JC.
other real jazz- check Sonny Rollins (my favorite)
smooth jazz- Spyro Gyra or Earth Wind and Fire
for good music, i usually just hit up my local library. they have all kinds of cd's there, all 4 free.
Cake is cool band. i guess they're classified as Alternative, but they're pretty funky for a rock/bluegrass band.
good song- Average White Band- Pick up The Pieces
