Hugely underrated

Personal favorite hip-hop group

One of the greatest rap groups helped develop blues rap and they had 6 albums 4 of which were fantastic

Infinitely better then D12

22Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five

Wow, way down here? You all know that Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five were among the original hip hop groups that started it all; famous for the song "The Message" which pretty much started the genre and influenced the generation that makes your favorite rap tunes. Grandmaster Flash practically invented Deejayin and Melle Mel was by far one of the dopest emcees of his day. Having them this low on the list shows how many rap fans have truly forgotten their roots.

Nobody appreciates old school rap. Period.

Trailblazers! These guys made most important rap song in hiphop history "the message". Legends!

23N.W.A.N.W.A was an American hip hop group from Compton, CA. They were among the earliest and most significant popularizers and controversial figures of the gangsta rap subgenre, and are widely considered one of the seminal groups in the history of hip hop music.V1 Comment
24Thug Life

Anything including tupac shakur is automatically number 1 in my books!

25Junior M.A.F.I.A.

The Complete BEST Group Of All Time! You Cannot Deny Biggie, Lil Cease and Let's Not Forget The Heavy Hitten Lil' Kim! She Was The Only Female in The Group and She Still Reigns The Queen Of Rap Till This Day (8/4/14)! And Biggie Still Reigns King!

26Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All

This group is by far one of the most diverse groups today. You got mellowhype that raps about guns weed and bitches while you got frank ocean who is a R&B singer, Matt Martian and Syd the Kid (forgot their group name) who is about smooth music with a hint of darkness in it. Let's not forget about Mike G who raps about the real life in the ghetto. Tyler who reveals the darkest side of OF and Earl Sweatshirt who in my opinion is a BEAST, and then theirs the untalented yet funny guys Taco and Jasper who raps are horrible yet get you hyped up. These guys should really be in the top 20's at least

They are the future of hip-hop. They have been getting big since yonkers. They have they own T.V. show. And THey have a record label Odd Future Records. They are different from everyone else. They don't talk about how much money they got and they get girls and they got a mansion in the hills and all that stupid crap. They have some of the best beats in hip hop right now. They have good lyrics.

These guys should be way higher in the list. Tyler the Creator is a genius and EARLs a savant.

These Guys are the future.

28Young Money

They suck. Take them off the list

Drake, Tyga, Birdman, etc. Are amazing! They are a little mainstream, but they have some sick rap songs that you can't ignore.

I ain't never even heard those three names in a sentence without hearing the words worst, awful, and terrible until now. How can you say Tyga is great? I'm done - 9713524179

How can young money be 66th I am sure all the weezy fan will agree of what I'm saying

The best member of young money is the queen of rap, Nicki Minaj. love her. - SammMinajj

29Run the Jewels

There is no way all of this can be on this list. what makes a rap group good and a rap group a group is the chemistry. groups without chemistry aren't really a group. that's what makes RTJ one of the best

Best new rap group that deserves to be at least 75

31Outlaw Immortalz

The Outlawz in my opinion make the best music out of any of the groups. One of the problems is they are living under the shadow of arguably the best rapper of all time. Some people expect to have an unreleased Pac verse on every song they do. People need to give them a proper listen to, because far too long the industry has black balled them. Yes Wu tang are amazing emcees and are well respected because of their skills, for me the Outlawz make better songs. Here's some songs to check out below;
The Outlawz - Black Rose, Pushing on, Our life, Remember me, Real talk many more..

The list is based on publicity. Outlaws immortals, tribe called quest Westside connection are all top 10. How is d12 there? Just because of Eminem. Kadafi, fatal and Napoleon were better than kuniva and the others. Nwa should be followed be Westside connection. Group with Tupac has to be 2nd. I admit the remaining outlaws now aren't decent, but the 3 I nentioned earlier are wild as hell! Kadafi was dope but died at like 19, raw talent gone early then just like Pac.

The Outlawz were and will always be the best. They were trained and directly influenced by the greatest rap legend 2PAC. Come on now! No one beats the Immortal Outlawz! - CollectiveRhythm

Tupac is the best gangsta rapper. I think so Outlawz should be on top 5.

32Ghetto Boys

These guys I believe really made southern hip-hop take off in the mid 90's, which was its really its golden era. Scarface was the leader of this group and he is one of the best storytellers if not one of the greatest rappers of all time. All you little b rappers rhyming today need to listen to this guy, because he put it down like no other. Anyway, enough of my little rant for now. They are a great combination of emcees that can tell vivid and dark stories in a way that very few can imitate. These guys are real rappers. - PrincelyVirtu

They put the South on the map before any other group and outkast took off with it. - wideup

My minds playing tricks on me is a classic ghetto story

Amazing production, incredible rappers (well, not just Allah nowadays) what more could you ask for?

Production is incredible, Stoupe kills every track. Vinnie P. Is one of the best lyricists ever in my opinion. You need to check out some of their music.

Some of their earlier albums sit alongside the likes of Illmatic and Enter the Wu-Tang as achievements in hip hop.

36Three 6 Mafia

Three 6 Mafia are the lords of Memphis and southern hip hop. Their early tapes, compilations, and their debut Mystic Stylez were horrorcore classics.

Three 6 Hands Down The Greatest! M4L! They started this hip hop that's out! All Rap Sounds Like Three 6 Mafia now days! SO under rated! Way ahead of their time, and created the CRUNK genre! ANd their Oscar Award Winners! THREE 6 MAFIA! TRIPLE SIX MAFIA! the MAFIA 6IX! HCP! HYNOTIZE MINDS HO! HCP! MA MA MA MAFFFIIIA!

38Black Hippy

Probs not the best... Yet anyway but my personal favourite. They are real and on of very few rappers going around that are keeping it real along with their flow and beats. Listen to them if you haven't them. Having some of my favourite rappers like kendrick lamar, jay rock, schoolboy Q and Ab-Soul keep a bright future ahead for the rap game.

To me, Black Hippy is the best group formed in the new era of Rap. They have 4 insane artists everyone of them have their own swagger about them and talent with the work ethic to compete with the best of them easily in my top 10 if not 5 to be honest I love their potential

Kendrick is already on top of the game right know and has made 2 classic albums, by the end of his career he will go down as the greatest of all time

Vice City settled this debate for me
