    Watching English films could help, listening to Hip-Hop is not likely to help much.

    Re: any suggesion

    Yes, I have a great suggestion. IT takes a bit of time (doesn't anything that requires learning a skill?) but it really works. Try shadowing what you hear. Repeat it right after you hear it (instantly, even while you are listening to the next words). You can do it out loud (best) or quietly, or even in your head, silently.
    If you can't understand a word of phrase, skip it and keep going on the next part you understand. Don't worry about being perfect... that will only slow down your learning.
    Try first with easier listening so you can say about 50% or more of what you hear. Then move to more difficult. Also try with shorter passages first, then longer.
    Good luck!
