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.

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.
