I think the two most well-known algerian hip-hop groups are Intik and MBS...
out of the two, I have only heard Intik, and I might be able to upload some stuff later today... both were formed in Algeria, and at least originally based in Algeria, but i believe Intik or at least some members of Intik relocated to France (they had some connections with french hip-hop band IAM, I believe)... but there are still apparently many, many other bands from different parts of Algeria, various cities...
(and of course there are some french hip-hop bands consisting of members of Algerian background, but that is a bit different)
