The Greatest and Best Rap Group of All Time


I did a lot of driving this weekend. And when I do a lot of driving I do a lot of thinking. And when I do a lot of thinking I think about how I would construct the greatest rap group ever. Then I think about all the fly lyrics and def beats we would drop. My picks to make up my super group of rap would include


Chuck D
Chuck D has probably the best voice of any rapper ever. It's clear and commanding. He has already been part of one of the best rap groups ever and this would be the opportunity to get to even greater heights.
Mike D

As a member of the Beastie Boys for the last 20 years. Mike has helped to create new sounds and styles that have kept them relavant far longer than most musical performers.

Heavy D

Every rap group needs a guy that can spit lyrics at a faster pace than most mere mortals. The diddly diddly diddly D is exactly the guy to do it for the greatest rap group of all time.

D-12

Eminem put this group together and I think we can all agree that he knows a little something about rap. Additionally these guys will add to the fear factor that rap groups need to keep the suckas straight.

Deelight

Completely bad ass rap groups have a chick to kick out some vocals for their hype hooks (C&C Music Factory?). Deelight has made a career out of doing just that.

Tenacious D

This awesome power of a rap group would certainly want to do some rap/metal crossover stuff and adding Tenacious D would allow them to do just that.

There it is. I don't think it gets any better than that. Sorry Cyber D. You didn't make the cut.

The only thing missing from this post is a theme. You need some sort of common element that unites these people together. This just reads like a random list.

Gyuss - I appreciate all constructive criticism here at the House, except yours.

What about one of these guys?

I D-agree D-with D-all D-you D-said. Delightful D-and Decisive.

Dagromm said...

Nore - I haven't ever listened to any of them, but I'd give it a shot.

Eslocura - Thank you for your comment. It's been the best one of the day so far.

Cyber D said...

We've seen what happens when I'm told I don't make the cut. Do we really want to relive all that?

Q said...

CyberD, you didn't make the cut. Deal with it...

Tera said...

Dagromm, I do believe you are a genius...except you forgot two of your "diddly's" ;)

Dagromm said...

Cyber D - Your avatar alone would keep you out of the group, but you could be the roadie.

Q - Now now deputy. We already have enough law in this town.

Tera - Are you inferring that I don't know diddly?!!!??????!?!?!???!?!?!?!?!?!?!??!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?

Cyber D said...

Q, you can smoke some pole!

Dags, my new avatar kicks serious amounts of ass cheeks! Go smoke some pole!

... is that roadie position still available?

Tera said...

LMAO!!!!!!!!

Dagromm said...

Cyber D - Anyone that would use the term "smoke some pole" would never make it in my most awesome rap ensemble.

Tera - It's one of those days where I have to much to write about, but son't want to run out of things to say. So I'll wait and put more up tomorrow.

Funny you should mention this... This weekend I must have heard/seen Dee-lite 3 or 4 times. And looking back... they make Black Eyed Peas/Fergie seem, um, kinda vapid.

Dagromm said...

Kofi - Having a good singer for your hooks is essential. The Peas have Fergie, the Fugies had Lauryn Hill, even Arrested Development had Dionne Farris. Not every song is meaningful, but they're alright for what they are. Thanks for commenting.
