Top Ten Best Rap Duos


The Top Ten

1 Outkast Outkast

I Like more public enemy but public enemy don't a duo public enemy is a group

Best rap duo ever by far. Multiple classic albums

I'm Listening To Ms. Jackson Right Now. Anyway. Stankonia Is Reason Enough To Show How Great Outkast Is. - 12cc

By far the best rap duo ever! Yes mobb deep and Eric B. And Rakim were and are good but oukast are legendary! Big boi and Andre 3000 all the way!

2 Mobb Deep Mobb Deep

The Infamous is easily one of the best albums of all time. Every song is a chilling account of the projects. Havoc and Prodigy blended very well together on tracks and deserve the #1 spot above the overrated Outkast. I am an Outkast fan myself, however Mobb Deep cannot be defeated by another rap duo. They are simply too supreme.

Outkast are overrated, Mobb Deep should be #1, The Infamous and Hell On Earth are classics and everyone loves Shook Ones Part II.

Mobb Deep is definitely the best duo in my opinion closely followed by Public Enemy and Erik B & Rakim. Outkast are good but no where near Mobb Deep's level.

Mobb Deep 100% more quotable than Outkast but less lyrical in the technical sense. Kast is more wide with what they make so its pretty equal

3 Bad Meets Evil

This group is underrated and awesome too

Eminem is just the greatest of all time and Royce is just the ' icing on the cake. - merqurycitymeltdown

Two of the best Technical rappers to ever do it.

Two amazing rappers who bring the best out of each other, Royce and Em have even said it themselves. H:TS is so underrated.

5 Gang Starr

It's a daily operation, no opponents for this dudes, respect is hard to earn without a moment of truth! One Of The Best Yet! RIP GURU

Gang Starr was by far the best. DJ premier is arguably the best hip hop producer there has ever been. Guru was one of the most unique lyricists of all time, he rapped about stuff no other rapper would. No nonsense, no bull just rhythm, flow and realness.

One of us, equals many of us
Disrespect one of us, you'll see plenty of us

6 Eric B & Rakim

Eric B & Rakim Are The Second Best. After Outkast - 12cc

The fact that it's not #1 is a shame to rap every where - EMBIGNASPAC

10 UGK

Pimp C did as much for the game as Pac as far as the South goes and you can disagree but thats what it is. Bun is still holdin the H up and there is no city on the map as hot as it. F all this new rap bull aside from slim, cham, and some others why can't we all roll a j and listen to some devin the dude anymore na its all about whats happening with lil wayne or any of these other fake rappers on autotunes and synthesizers

R.I. P Pimp C, I am very glad Bun B has made it big, but I wish Free Pimp C was still alive. They put Port Arthur on the map along with Mike Jones for rap and I am glad others agree. - skearns615

Very close vote over outkast, Meth and Red, and Clipse. There is just something about their gangsta downsouth rhythm.

Your favorite rapper's favorite rappers.

The Contenders

11 Black Star
12 Eminem and Nate Dogg

Till I Collapse is the best Eminem song I have heard. Em and Nate Dogg together was brilliant and always did well together. RIP Nate Dogg

When they're together, there's no song id rather hear

13 Tupac & Biggie V 1 Comment
14 Boogie Down Productions
15 Watch the Throne (Jay-Z and Kanye West)

Well it's the best none group rap album aside from the chronic (dre and snoop). And this is duos not groups so it should go

1. Watch The Throne
2. Dre and 2Pac
3. Nas and Jay Z
4. Bad Meets Evil (a little too mainstreamish but whatever. I only don't like mainstream when its not too much like pop music, I only don't like pop music when it's unintelligent. This group isn't unintelligent)
5. Dre and Snoop dogg (funny dre is on my list twice, he really isn't a great rapper but works great in a duo)

16 Rakim & Eric.B
17 B.G Knocc Out & Dresta

These guys are so underrated, glad to see them at least given some kinda credit, Real brothas is in my opinion one of the best gangsta rap albums if not the best. it's the only album where I like every song and when I say only I mean it

18 Clipse

Clipse are definitely top ten. Both got busy on the mic. Brought high quality lyricism in a game today that is heavily missing it. Two classic albums.

Some of the coldest to do it... Period point blank

they get slept on to much its ridiculous

19 P. Diddy & Biggie
20 Ces Cru

They're fresh. Their flow is so sick. Together, they flow back and forth flawlessly. Sure, there are classic duos like UGK and GangStarr, but as far as duos go, these guys are really good. "When Worlds Collide" is proof of their talent together.

Rising up with Strange Music. Watch for some solid work for the next few years. ^S^
