Default Recommeded Listening - Hip Hop

While I have always been "aware" of dance music, I have only just started listening to it more closely with the view to producing similar results. But there is a huge amount to listen to.

I have started at the beginning with things like:

The Sugar Hill Gang: "Rapper's Delight"
Afrika Bambaataa and the Soulsonic Force: "Planet Rock
Coolio: "Boyfriend", "Gangsta's Paradise"

So I was wondering what you seasoned dance experts and DJs would recommend as a required listening for various genres - starting here with Hip Hop. These could be individual tracks or artists to explore. What are the important tracks that should be listened to in order to get into this genre?
