Default OT: MTV's Top 10 Rap Groups of All Time

http://www.mtv.com/bands/h/hip_hop_w...ps/index.jhtml

10. UGK
9. Fugees
8. Salt 'N Pepa
7. EPMD
6. A Tribe Called Quest
5. Wu-Tang Clan
4. Outkast
3. Public Enemy
2. N.W.A
1. Run-DMC




I don't disagree with the list too much but I think that 8ball and MJG should be ahead of UGK. And I think it is politically correct to put PE 3rd, but Outkast and Tribe were better as a group. Chuck D is an Icon and Flav was a character but none of them could spit with Dre or Big Boi or Phife and Q-tip

Actually if you think about it, KRS and BDP were just as political as PE was and KRS is a much better MC than Chuck D.

But that's just my opinion.

That's a shame they've made no room for the following:

Eric B. & Rakim
Pete Rock & C.L. Smooth
Gang Starr

I think they specifically eliminated MC/DJ combinations. They have a special honorable mention section for those groups.

You guys should watch the deliberations. They're actually quite interesting.

UGK does deserve to be on that list. They were one of the first groups to come out of the Texas and the South. Not to mention they are still together and dropping albums. But if they were going to go with a pioneer southern rap group, I would have chose the Geto Boys. They put the South on the map.
