To all those who make/ wanna make they're own unique music, where do you draw your inspiration from?

Currently I make music like Lil Wayne and I rap similar to Royce da 5'9, i'm serious. I hate the music I make, they have catchy hooks but its not me, guns, drugs, money, women all those subjects in a hip hop song sucks to me, I rap about my religion pretty good but I don't wanna go in Lacrae's Direction. Then I listened to a rapper named Aesop Rock specifically a song named "None Shall pass", I can't lie I loved it, The complex lyrics with shady meanings and poetry, the beautiful chorus, the beat, It was incredible (well to me anyways because I listen to mainstream crap excluding Eminem) I threw my previous rap books away after using all the raps in them of course, and decided that I wanted to do Alternative hip hop and possibly indie hip hop but idk. Then I realized I didn't know how to start lol, I know I can rap about social problems within the nation and insert some poetry too but I wish I had some inspiration of some sort because when I recite my lyrics I'm just not feeling it. Any tips? Where do you draw your inspiration?
