Build Your Own Hip-Hop Supergroup

Gotta get the Cream…

So there’s a bit of talk about Slaughterhouse, right? Joell and Royce are sick, Buddens has his moments and…err…Crooked I? As I was saying, who would you throw into a smoke-filled studio with a bag of Chinese take-out and a case of Becks? Four MC’s, one wildcard for guest shots. Go in.

Unkut Dot Com’s Roster:

The Headcrack Assassination Squad

Roc Marciano

Strong Island delivered us yet another unique wordsmith. A perfect combination of abstract wordplay and street science.

Killa Sha

Sha Lumi brings together twenty years worth of Bridge influence into an action-packed sixteen every time, with the best ad-libs around.

Sean Price

Sean P is that dude. I actually through both the recent Bootcamp albums just to hear his verses. Tends to burn everyone else on the same track.

Blaq Poet

Every time Poet hits the booth, he wins. Nothing fancy, just bare-bones gutter shit with a a ton of heart from one of the most reliable troopers in the game.

Wildcard: Doo-Wop

Wop is a great rapper because he isn’t actually a rapper, doesn’t try too hard, he has a great flow and he keeps it simple, dummy. Plus it’s mostly the voice.

Sid Romes Roams on the beat.

Gotty™ from TSS roster:

Nas – Why not?

The Beatnuts (circa late 90’s) – for the production & the fact that they like to fuck, drink beer & smoke some shit.

Ghostface Killah – No particular reason except that Ghost should always be included just to shake up the chemistry of any lineup of stellar emcees.

Ludacris – Because the only rapper who has unquestionably stolen more songs is Busta. While I’m not a huge fan of either, I’d rather have measured doses of Luda spitting precise rhymes over a throaty Busta “raow raow”-ing in the absence of coherent thought.

Bonus shot – Alfamega – w/a room full of inebriated rowdy rappers, somebody’s gotta keep’em in line. Maybe he can do a chorus or two. No verses please, Mega, thanks.

Comment by Jasper 03.05.09 @

i’d have Lord Finesse, Akinyele, Kool G Rap, Big Daddy Kane, and Thirstin howl. All spittin in full effect punchline mode over one of my beats,…

Old school selection i know but i don’t feel many guys spittin these days,..

A more modern selection maybe: Meyhem, Roc Marciano, Jadakiss, Ghostface, Again with me on beat. :)

..Looking forward to reading some other peoples selections…

Raekwon, Jadakiss, AZ, G Rap

What about Nas, Foxy, AZ, Nature with Dre on the beats?

Comment by Nordy 03.05.09 @

I think that a selection from the Crooklyn Dodgers lineups would make a dope supergroup. I’d go with Jeru, O.C., Masta Ace and Chubb Rock. Produced by DJ Premier but tracks by Pete Rock and Large Pro would also fit.

Comment by ceedub 03.05.09 @

Del the Funkee Homosapian
Chali 2Na
MF Doom (Beats and Rhymes)

The Un-Bearable Wackness of Being MC’s (The UWB MC’s)

Malachi The Nutcracker
Aesop Rock

And of course Primo on the beats cause he’s the only one who could pull this off (I see you Malachi).

Comment by sooch 03.05.09 @

ppls got good taste… but i dont think madlib has produced anything good in years imo the first quasimoto lp

Comment by er4se 03.05.09 @

and no mention of p bros on production? shit…

Comment by er4se 03.05.09 @

Here it is, try to step to this 5 headed monster:

-Tame One (An MC’s MC.)
-R.A. the Ruggedman (He goes all out on posse cuts; why not up the ante with an entire group project?)
-Pharaohe (Phenomenal Flow) Monch (Nuff Said.)
-Copywrite (One of the best punchline rappers out there.)
-Prince Paul (Too often overlooked, but he always brings the heat.)


Comment by skinnyjoe 03.05.09 @

With no parameters given, this is like ID-ing an Air Force One, the possibilities are infinite and intriguing.

Giving consideration to dudes who I would like to hear together, meaning their styles are similar, yet different enough to make a cohesive “group” how about:


Or, for “syllables, syllables, syllables” crew, how about:

Percee P

Really, you could do this all day…

Comment by digglahhh 03.05.09 @

Chino XL – he always brings something to the table when spitting with other emcees – peep that Riooot joint he did with Ras Kass, that joint with Immortal Tech, the stuff he did with Sway and Tech, Kool G Rap!!!

Papoose – I recently heard that Fat Joe ‘Fair One’ diss and ‘Alphabetical Slaughter’ and have to admit I was impressed!

Pharoahe Monche – love this dude, and feel he would gel really well with XL!

Eminem – when he’s on point, nothing short of awesome!!!

WILD CARD: Ras Kass – even though I don’t feel what he’s been doing more recently

Also, didn’t really understand the Crooked I comment … he is a heavy emcee!!!!

Comment by Brock 03.06.09 @

I don’t know much about Crooked I so he’s become ‘the other guy’ in the group. I also enjoy ragging on anyone west of Philly.

Comment by Robbie 03.06.09 @

how is this for the best reggae influenced MC’s super group:

– Chip Fu – for that Trini spice
– Busta Ryhmes – non stop strength
– Spice 1 – The spiggity spice!
– Bushwick Bill – always has some joker’s under his sleeve

Bonus MC
– Queen Latifah – Her chorus’ from back in the day had some CRAZY reggae flava!

Production by
– KRS One – check his track record! nothing but dopeness!

Comment by cenzi 03.06.09 @

El-P on the beat

Comment by eric 03.06.09 @

@ Robbie!!! First time I heard of Crooked was when he spit this sick freestyle with Chino on the Wake Up Show!!! Both came hard … there were rumors that Chino’s verse was going at Eminem for hijacking his style!!!! Check it: Chino and Crooked Freestyle

With regards Crooked … I find his rhymes a little cliche at times, but def. the best from the West … and he spits flames on every single one of those SH joints.

Comment by GarryGanja 03.06.09 @

Even though I am an old school cat (check my previous entry with my supergroup choices) I would love to hear a group with Joell Ortiz spittin’ stuff. To make more “modern” names, he could be joined by Immortal Technique and the guys from NYG’z. And by the way, where is Krumb Snatcha these days?

Comment by ceedub 03.06.09 @

^^he got a new album out called “hidden scriptures” i think

Comment by wallysean 03.07.09 @

Sadat X – MC vet with the uniqueness who never disappoints
Blaq Poet – attacks, what the fuck you thought was gonna happen?!?
Kool G Rap – the GOAT, if he can’t eat, nobody can’t eat
Greg Nice – mainly for hooks, for which he would be on every single one.

wild card – M.O.P. or R.A.

Comment by sean g 03.07.09 @

Unkut is trippin’ balls if yall think Crooked I ain’t nice. Ask Ras Kass, he vouches for the nigga and listed him in his own “GREATEST MC’S” list a couple of months ago. Canibus, Chino XL, Bun B, Just Blaze, Kurupt, Xzibit and the list goes on and on. All these niggas vouch for him. Stop sleeping and get educated. It ain’t hard to google the nigga. He got mad freestyles to peep on youtube.

Unkut lost!
