Excellent idea, in no particular order:

1) Ugly Duckling
2) People Under The Stairs
3) Public Enemy
4) Beatnuts
5) Run DMC


Jurassic 5 came in close but this is such a difficult decision to make! I could do 10 Very Happy

Some good mentions already (The Classics - Tribe, EPMD, PE, NWA, Beatnuts, Brand Nubain)

Wont drag this one out as much:

Gang Starr - nearly every albums a classic to me

Wu Tang Clan - Was a real movement, some of the funniest moments in hip hop ever came from these guys, from interviews, songs, everything. Some of the greatest Characters in hip hop ever. Started the trend of putting on everyone you ever knew (maybe not a good thing, lol, but most of the wu-affiliates were quite good), first to start their own clothing line, first to make their own computer games.

The Roots - So many good albums, prove that you can make great hip hop using instruments, great live, and in my opinion they are constantly improving (I LOVED Rising Down), also Black Thought could have been an honorable mention in my Top 5 Mc's.

CunninLynguists - Another great great band, amazing beats, great rappers. Love nearly anything I hear from them.

Ugly Duckling - Great albums, great production, great rhymes, great live. They've made so much stuff i can just put on repeat and not get tired off.

So many other possibles - Little Brother (might have put them in over CL but I already Chose Phonte in my rapper list, same goes for Atmosphere), Recently I've loved Move.Meant. I love hard sh*t from the 90's like MOP and Heltah Skeltah. Could go on for days.

Tell ya my problem with tha beastie boys is that after one track they just sound real whiny and annoy the hell outta me, don't get me wrong they've done some great tracks. I just can't listen to more than one in a row let alone a whole lp

Wow. I dont think Ive ever heard someone speak as negatively about the Boys as that. (not having a go, just saying).
I've always viewed them as being universely liked (even loved) by the hip hop community (pros and fans), but thats obviously just me looking at the situation through rose coloured glasses as they are my favourite group of all time.

Oh well, to each his own.

honestly I gotta say i'm the same. I like the beasties, I like their music, I can see there influence, I respect the hell out of them and wouldn't deny anyone calling them legendary. But as for personal taste I couldn't listen to them constantly all day like I could other groups.

Altough I could listen to their whole album in one go, lol. But I maybe couldn't listen to a few of there albums in a row.

I actually said the same thing recently about The Ultramagnetic MC's as well.

I'd have to say;

Ugly Duckling
Jurassic 5
Beastie Boys
Run DMC
Michael Franti (I know he's not really rap, but one of his albums I have has a lot of spoken word/rap style)

I'm honestly not a die hard rap fan, I'm not a metal head, I'm not a techno junkie, I'm not a pop fiend. I like what I like.

As far as rap goes, I enjoy a lot of Shady Records music, like Obie Trice and Eminem & a few others, but cannot stand $0.50. He has no talent, doesn't have a good voice and made his fame by being shot rather than good at what he does.

I love the laid back stylings of J5 & UD and others like them, but I also like a bit of "in yo face, biatch" rap, too (just not as much or as often).

Chocolate Supa Highway with Spearhead is an amazing album, and that's hiphop for sure. When he was with Disposable Heroes of Hiphoprisy they were straight up hiphop!!

Good choice.

I know i'm late getting on this, but thought i'd add mine.

1) Beastie Boys
2) Ugly Duckling
3) Cypress Hill
4) Public enemy
5) Jurassic 5

I could never get sick of the Beasties. They manage to keep evolving and stay fresh from album to album. All the instrumental stuff is sick.

In no particular order:

1. A Tribe Called Quest
2. Grandmaster Flash & the Furious Five
3. Ugly Duckling
4. Jurassic 5
5. Rhymester

...but if I wanna get a Royal Rumble going, I'd add these 5 groups:

Hieroglyphics, People Under the Stairs, Gangstarr, Nice & Smooth, & De la Soul
