That was more of a collab than an official duo.

I thought most of the list was okay. I'm glad they had UGK in the top five.

Rodney O and Joe Cooley.


Apparently it's just duos in which both members are MCs. Otherwise there's MANY more missing from that list, haha :)

Aye dog, aye.  First of all, errbody damn well know that Tribe Called Quest's MCs were Q and Phife.  Busta probably rapped on more TCQ tracks than Jarobi.

 

Second of all, if Mos and Kwali are a "collab" then Jay Z and Kanye are a collab.  Sure Black Star IS on the list but , wait .... look over there! .....

 

.... Third of all, how are you gonna rank Lil Wayne and whoever he happens to re collabing with over Latryx?  That's some old bullshit.

So the criteria is two rappers who either handle production themselves or get beats from a third party.

 

Beatnuts

Heltah Skeltah

Artifacts

Black Sheep

Group Home  :((

Double X Posse

Camp Lo

Nice & Smooth


Holy shit. Not even Bitches With Whips prepared me for that.

^^so they can't have a DJ as a third official member, right?

I suppose it depends on the definition of official third member.

 

EPMD was made up of Erick and Parish and DJ Scratch was their DJ. Before Scratch they had K La Boss, but neither of them was ever considered to be an integral part of EPMD, they were just a DJ for hire.

 

Whereas Ali Shaheed Mohammed was an integral part of ATCQ, which is why they don't feature on the list.

 

I don't know. It's a bit of a daft list if you ask me!

If it was groups with two MCs in them, it would make more sense. Then you could add all the above plus Dilated Peoples and the like. Not sure how you'd categorise Public Enemy in that though. They're obviously a group rather than a rap duo, even if they only have two MCs - or is it one MC and a hypeman? Or is it just bollocks?

Yeah that makes more sense to me. A group or regular team up of two MCs regardless of if they have a DJ in the group.

How about a list of rap groups with at least one member that nobody can work out what they actually did? Example: Jarobi from ATCQ.
