Billboard Lists Top 50 Hip-Hop Groups Of All Time: OutKast...

OutKast is named Billboard’s greatest rap group of all time.

Billboard is back with another new list in celebration of Hip-Hop’s 50 years. Earlier this year, the platform listed 50 greatest rappers of all time, and now they make a list of the greatest rap groups.

The list is based on the body of work/achievements (charted singles/albums, gold/platinum certifications, other awards), cultural impact/influence (how the group’s work fostered the genre’s evolution), longevity (years at the mic), lyrics (storytelling skills) and flow (vocal prowess).

Billboard named Outkast as the greatest group of all time. The rap duo of Andre 3000 and Big Boi is number one of the list. The second on the list is legendary Wu-Tang Clan, which includes members RZA, GZA, Method Man, Raekwon, Ghostface Killah, Inspectah Deck, U-God, Masta Killa, and Ol’ Dirty Bastard until his death in 2004. The third on the list if N.W.A, the group which originally had Arabian Prince, Dr. Dre, Eazy-E, and Ice Cube, with DJ Yella and MC Ren.

In the greatest rappers list earlier this year, JAY-Z was named number one, followed by Kendrick Lamar, Nas, Tupac and Eminem.
