I almost mentioned Goodie MOB, but I think they go on the second tier, just below some of the other groups that have been mentioned. Cee Lo is another that I'd like to see get back to rapping. When he's on, he's as good as anyone.

Yeah Souls is what I meant...duh. :-B For some reason whenever I think of that album the first thing that pops into my head is Heiro. I totally agree on the 93 till infinity song...now it's in my head....

Dial the seven digits
Call up bridget
Her mans a midget
Plus she got friends, yo, I can dig it
Heres a fourty, swig it
Ya know its frigid
I got em chillin in the cooler
Break out the ruler
Dayum!

:-D

Ha...that settles it. I'm plying 93 'til Infiity on my radio spot tonight. My absolute favorite part of that song has always been when the beat completely drops away under Phesto (I think?). I love that song.

I always thought Bone was okay, but overrated. They had some very good songs, but never put out an album that I would consider classic and had a lot of filler on most of their records. Also, they weren't even best (or first) at that whole midwestern-singing-rap style that they supposedly "pioneered." I'll take Do or Die, or even Crucial Conflict over them for that genre most of the time.

Another group that isn't as popular as those that have been brought up, but I think warrants mentioning in this discussion is The Coup. They have a great catalog of music and put on an amazing live show.

Can we count Eric B & Rakim as a group? If so, they merit recogition, same with Pete Rock & CL Smooth.

On this topic, does it seem like the "rap group" has gone the way of the dinosaur. 15 years ago, they were everywhere. Now it seems like the solo rap artist is pretty much all you see.

Of course you can't see an artist's name without seeing, "featuring ....".

I'm not a huge hip-hop fan but I tend to like NWA more than the others just because I think they had the best beats. Music first, lyrics second. For me, anyway. :-D

I'd probably go with Tribe or Roots myself. Another that is up there that hasn't been mentioned is Jurassic 5.

And another honorable mention for Outkast and classic Pharcyde and I also really like Goodie Mob.

I myself have always thought Wu-Tang was a bit overrated. :-?

Glad to see someone mention Hieroglypics! I couldn't agree more. ;-D ;-D

I'm going to meet you on your "group" requirement and still say Tupac. Tupac and the Outlawz.
