    By greatest do you mean most popular? :o

    I'll admit "Bombs over Baghdad" is my favorite rap song though :big grin:

    one of, but not THE best. the roots put on better shows all three times i've seen them. the pocket dwellers always put on a good show. living legends did well the one time i saw them.

    in that case, you're gonna have to go way back to gangstarr when primo was on fire. the moment of truth tour was one of the greatest hiphop tours ever.

    and I'm certain you've heard enough hip-hop to judge the "greatest hip-hop act ever"

    :rolleyes:

    one of=gangstarr
    depends on if you've seen the live act and/or there's a wide agreement. i'm sure anyone posting up on the thread has been to enough shows to put an opinion on it.

    name any artist who has been in the game for over 10 years, consitently pushed the boundaries of hip hop music and provided fans with some of the most creative and wicked music, attained commercial success while still keeping artistic integrity, and have production skills like them.

    gangstarr is amazing but they are 1-2 levels below outkast's greatness.

    Depending on how much weight you give to commercial success, Outkast is hard to beat.

    In my opinion, commercial success is irrelevant, and I am more impressed by artists who achieve longevity without commercial success.

    Got me there--almost.
    i've heard Outkast from Southernplayalistik to Aquemini to current and to be honest, they've done a great job. Their fan base has evolved through their 11 years. I'll still challenge that The Roots have maintained the same base as Outkast artistically, commercially, independently, and so on just from contrasting both shows thru time.

    Going head-to-head, I'm still sticking with The Roots because they've maintained a constant, and gained even more at an earlier time. Outkast only really exploded off of 'Hey Ya', where I've been bitching about hearing Black Thought in the elevators for the past four years.

    If you wanna go even further, how many times have you seen Outkast at Warped Tour, of all places? I know I've seen Ice-T four times, and he packed the stage every time.
