Id say Wu-Tang is prob. the best of all time, but i really like The Roots a lot. Blackstar has some great songs but cant be considered one of the best ever. A Tribe called Quest has some really good songs but isnt in the top 3 for me.

A lot of good mentions. I don't listen to much hip-hop any more, but used to listen to a lot of Beastie Boys and Arrested Development. Great mentions, of course, with Tribe Called Quest and Run DMC.

This thread begins and ends with A Tribe Called Quest. Actually The Roots can get in on the action, too.

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


i would think too much selfishness. no need to share the money 10 different ways.


lupe, kanye, and pharell spoke about creating a super group of sorts, which would be one of the only in today's world.

i never into many of the old school groups like de la soul, a tribe called quest, public enemy, or run dmc. i have listened to the roots and enjoy some of their stuff, and i like both mos def and talib kweli.

Wu-Tang and it's not even close when it comes to groups.

De La Soul a distant second.

Extremely tough call to make, but I'm going with Public Enemy here. Their lyrics have to be some of the most thought-prokoving words ever spoken on wax. Their style was also quite groundbreaking. "It Takes a Nation..." is still the most played rap record in my library and it's 20 years old. It was relevant then and it's still relevant today.
