5 Favorite rap duos ?
« on: September 13, 2011, 06:21:55 AM »
Duos are a staple in Hip Hop music, and a sought after commodity.

with different types of duos : the DJ/MC type of duo (Eric B. & Rakim, Gang Starr, etc.), the Producer/Rapper type of duos with the latter being the microphone specialist and the former having sometimes honorable/good microphone skills (Mobb Deep, UGK, Dogg Pound, etc.) or the MC/MC type of duos where both members are only mc's (and maybe occasional producers) (8Ball & MJG, CNN, OutKast, etc.)

I did not include BDP & the Beatnutz, because they were not duos originally. neither did I include Run DMC, NBN, Above the Law, even though only 2 of their members are rapping, they're not duos per se.


My list isn't who I consider the best duos but rather the groups I personally prefer and bump the most.

1. Gang Starr
2. OutKast
3. Dogg Pound
4. U.G.K.
5. Playaz Tryna Strive => duo from Vallejo composed of T-Pup & Philthy Rich. only 1 album released in 96 "all frames of the game" but what an album !! incredible production throughout the effort with live instruments used. very good chemistry between the two rappers who also happen to be decent lyricists and microphone technicians.

"I didn't do nothing but make people money and I didn't leave nobody high and dry.  Any album (on death row) people are going to check for.  But it's time for Dre to worry about Dre.  I'm focused on the new Snoop Doggs, not like that but you know what I mean."

From that list, not in order:

  • Tha Dogg Pound
  • Mobb Deep
  • Method Man & Redman
  • M.O.P.
  • Gangstarr

I actually voted for Outkast instead of Gangstarr though.

Oh man, that's a tough question.

Outkast, UGK, Mobb Deep, JMT, Gangstarr, Meth & Red are all good duos, and I'm sure I forgot some.

yeah my bad for forgetting the convicts as well. especially since i'm a fan of both Big Mike & 3-2. something serious and wicked buddah baby are two of my favorite south albums for sure and i always felt like Big Mike was the underdog of the Geto Boys considering he was just treated as a mere substitute of Willie D and all the drama he had at rap a lot. i also forgot havoc & prodeje.

This list is severely lacking if you're including artists who have released albums together. I hear of about 20 or so every hear. You should've added Madvillain and Cannibal Ox too. Their albums are considered underground classics.

They haven't released an album as a duo, yet lol.
Neither have Raekwon and Ghostface and they made the list. A duo is a duo, whether they've made nine albums together or three songs. If they have a number of classics under their belt and people view them as a legendary duo then they should be included in the conversation.
