The Top Ten

1 Mobb Deep Mobb Deep Mobb Deep was an American hip hop music duo from Queensbridge Houses, New York. The group consisted of Havoc and Prodigy, and were a hardcore East Coast hip hop group.

Should be number 1!?
Shook ones pt.2! is clearly amazing. R.I.P Prodigy

'My mind is older'

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.

2 Outkast Outkast Outkast is an American hip hop duo formed in 1991, in East Point, Atlanta, Georgia, composed of Atlanta-based rappers André "André 3000" Benjamin (formerly known as Dré) and Antwan "Big Boi" Patton. The duo achieved both critical acclaim and commercial success in the 1990s and early 2000s, helping ...read more.

He is the duos that got the most impact, the most successful and even called André 3000 the greatest rapper of all time

This isn't even necessary. Outkast is the GOAT. Both Big Boi and Andre 3000 are tied for the number one spot on the list of best rappers of all time, and Big Boi is great at being very consistent with his work, whereas Andre 3000 is highly diverse and rich in musical tastes. And I agree with him that Prince OBVIOUSLY kicked MJ's ass (although MJ is still AMAZING)!

Stankonia is OBVIOUSLY the GOAT. Enough said.

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

3 Eric B & Rakim

They were one of the first, they had the best beats and the best flow, number 1 for me

These guys came up in the days when the game was ruff! Lyrics were over beats not the reverse, and they came hard! #1 to me!

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

Coolest Rap-Duo!

5 Bad Meets Evil

This group is underrated and awesome too

Two lyrical geniuses at work.

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

Eminem is the best rapper of all time and Royce is tenth

6 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

7 Black Star

What is this doing so low?

8 Method Man & Redman

Two great stoners rapping! who could say no to that? - eatmaxeat

Blackout! ('enough said! )

THE best. Their fluidity is unmatched

Best flow, best voices!

9 Dr. Dre & Eminem

Forget about dre

Guilty Conscience was genius.

Immortal

10 Pete Rock & C.L. Smooth

Yes bring back the 90s.

By far the most underrated group on this list.

They reminisce over you

Surprised this isn't higher on the list.

The Contenders

11 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.

12 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)

13 8Ball and MJG

Underrated duo, they had good songs. - CedreticFomento

14 Boogie Down Productions
15 Ces Cru

The chemistry between Godemis and Ubiquitous is unmatched, the way they flow with each other is unreal.

Ces cru catastrophic events specialist GRIDLOCK

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.

The best hip hop duo doing it right now, hands down. They are even better live.

17 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

till i collapse all the way - Phuffu

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

We have bitch please ll am till I ciollapse

18 DJ Jazzy Jeff and The Fresh Prince
19 Trae and Z-Ro
20 EPMD

Should be in the top ten. One of the best rap duos of all time. Old school hip hop at it's best. Funk music and slow flow.

Top 5

21 Run the Jewels Run the Jewels Run the Jewels, also known by the initialism RTJ, is an American hip hop duo consisting of rapper/producer El-P and rapper Killer Mike.

I don't normally listen to rap but when my friend convinced me to give them a shot I was hooked from day one all thanks to Blockbuster Night Part 1

They deserve to be in the top ten. They're amazing. - Smashball23

Not one artist has made me replay and replay as much as RTJ has, while I wanted to give Ces Cru a nod as well, I couldn't in good conscience not vote for El-P and Mike. They are raw, aggresive, funny, and altogether a blast to listen to any time of the day.

They are new, fresh, and just goddam funny. With El-P's lyrical genius and Killer Mike's fast rapping they might become big. Listen to their songs they are the bomb.com. Favorites of mine are Oh My Darling Don't Cry and Lie Cheat Steal.

22 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

23 Common Market
24 Method Man & GZA
25 Capone-N-Noreaga
26 Salt N' Pepa

My gurls yeah!

27 Kris Kross

"Jump! "

28 Tha Dogg Pound

Wow, who voted, this is my personal fov. duo but, others were lyrically better - iversonallyn

Dogg Food is an undisputable classic and Daz Dillinger is quite possibly the best--and definitely the most underrated--producer in the game. "I Don't Like to Dream About Gettin' Paid" is one of those songs I never tire of hearing.

Kurupt!

29 Eminem & 50 Cent

Both go hard! And are funny together!

30 XXXTentacion & Ski Mask the Slump God

Yeah - Luckys

31 Nas & AZ

AZ and Nas are underrated as hell

underrated

32 Ying-Yang Twins
33 Insane Clown Posse Insane Clown Posse Insane Clown Posse is an American hip hop, horrorcore and rap rock duo consisting of rappers Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope, that was formed in 1989 in Detroit. ...read more.

These guys are original, they deserve more recognition than they get!

34 $uicideboy$ $uicideboy$

YES

Sad that they aren't already on here. - DarkBoi-X

35 Eyedea & Abilities

An INCREDIBLY underrated duo. Should be at least top ten.

36 The Specktators

Listen to them and you see the are awesomeness

The Specktators are easily the most underrated Rap Group ever. Packi and Moe-T Way beyond their years. If you've never heard of them look up some of their content, I was seriously blown away.

37 MC Shan & Marley Marl
38 The Cool Kids
39 Tupac & Biggie

WRONG! They were enemies.

40 P. Diddy & Biggie
41 Kids See Ghosts

Kids see ghosts sometimes

Kid Cudi and Kanye have unparalleled chemistry, the fact that they share mental health issues allows for an extremely vulnerable heartfelt album.

KIDS SEE GHOSTS was only 7 tracks, but all of them were perfect

Screw Kanye West - DaWyteNight

42 Damien Marley & Nas

Their album is one of my All time favorites.
And patience is my all time favorite due!.

43 Lil Wayne and Drake

Never in a million years.

44 Capital Kings Capital Kings Capital Kings is an American pop, electronic and Christian pop act currently consisting of producer and rapper Cole Walowac.
45 Leak Bros

Cage brings some of the best verses of his career on top of some phenomenal beats. Tame One similarly brings incredible lyrics which match Cage perfectly. The whole concept of the Water World album being a PCP themed amusement park further adds to the unique experience that is Leak Bros. Anyone who calls themselves a rap fan must check them out.

46 Macklemore and Ryan Lewis

At the rate they're going, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis could be taking over the world soon!

47 Paul Wall & Chamillionaire
48 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

Made good diss track D.P.G. Killa

Real Brothas dope album

49 Dead Prez
50 Compton's Most Wanted

The Chill and Mc Eiht
