Best MCs from Rap Groups/Rap Rock Bands

This list is about the greatest mc's that are in/were in rap groups like Eazy-E from N.W. A or Chuck D from Public Enemy. But the mc's solo career won't affect there rankings because really this list is based who good they are/were in there group so when you guys first see this list you won't expect to see 2pac at #1. Just to let you know I'm not going to give my personal favorites very high rankings because I whenever I make a list I make it fair and it pains me not to put my favorites at the top but I'm going to play it fair here.
