Best Rap Groups


The Contenders: Page 2

21 Hieroglyphics

Hiero should be number 3 on this list after D12 and Wu-tang just listen to their songs it�'s great.
Casual, Del the Funkee Homosapien, Domino, Pep Love, A-Plus, Opio, Tajai, Phesto, DJ Toure, Snupe, Mike G, Jay-Biz. Most of them are unknown but still the third best rap group ever in my opinion.

22 Grandmaster 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!

23 Ghetto 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

These put down south on the map with incredible story and gory detial of story rhyming about, scar face is one the best story tellers in rap history, bushwick bill is crazy ass hell, he remained me of a crazy insane slasher in a horror flick, willie d is smooth player of group second most explicit group beside nwa.

24 Odd 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.

Honestly my second favorite after wu tang. Every one in the group has such a lovable personality and some of them don’t even do anything so they are basically just a friend group that happens to be AMAZING at producing and rapping

27 Junior 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!

28 Linkin Park Linkin Park Linkin Park is an American rock band formed in Agoura Hills, California, in 1996. The members include Chester Bennington (vocals), Mike Shinoda (rapping vocals, pianist), Brad Delson (guitar), Dave "Phoenix" Farrell (bass), Joe Hahn (DJ) and Rob Bourdon (drums). Linkin Park are associated with a mixture more.

Technically, it's rap metal, so it counts... - ThatoneMetalhead

Technically, it's punk with rap (not metal). But yes, it counts because there's rap. - Metal_Treasure



Lol hip hop?

29 Black 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

30 Run 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

You need to listen to them, don't just ignore this comment, they're amazing - EMBIGNASPAC

Thanks to nwa, groups like this don't get the attention they deserve. - DaWyteNight

33 Death Grips

This is a rather inaccessible band, so I can see why they aren't popular. However, the Death Grips are DEFINITELY worth a listen, as well as consideration for the number one spot. - ThatoneMetalhead

I don't normally like rap but this has punk infused in it AND I LOVE IT!

Good and should be up there at number on or TWO

Out of their 5 albums (plus 1 fantastic mixtape) they have only released good material. Their great use of sampling plus the highly abrasive vocals that MC Ride spits creates some insane good music. Up their with the best in my opinion.

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.

35 Three 6 Mafia Three 6 Mafia Three 6 Mafia is an American hip hop group from Memphis, Tennessee, signed to Columbia Records. The group was formed by DJ Paul, Lord Infamous, and Juicy J in 1991 and was at first known as Triple 6 Mafia.

Underrated as hell, these guys are in my top 3 rap groups - venomouskillingmachine

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


U just gotta listen 2 kno they the bes

Ok, Cee-lo is annoying as hell, ill give y'all that. But Big Gipp, T-Mo and Khujo have different skills that correspond well enough to produce 5 incredible albums (Soul Food, Still Standing, World Party, One Monkey Don't Stop No Show and Age Against The Machine.). They do not deserve 41, they at least deserve 5.
