The tendency to crew up makes Hip Hop different than all of the other types of popular music
It adds a sense of camaraderie and rivalry that makes the genre so exciting.
And with that rivalry, there comes ranking. Complex took a crack at ranking the top 15 crews in Hip Hop with the criteria of commercial dominance, musical quality, and cultural impact.
Here's their list.
15. Ear Drummers 14. Pro Era 13. Bad Boy 12. Grand Hustle
11. Freebandz 10. YSL (Young Thug, Duke, Peewee Longway) 9. Taylor Gang 8. Dreamville
7. MMG 6. YMCMB 5. SaveMoney (Chance The Rapper, Vic Mensa, Joey Purp, Towkio, Donnie Trumpet)
4. A$AP Mob 3. OVO 2. G.O.O.D. Music 1. TDE
What do you think? TDE is an interesting pick because the label always seems to be in a bit of (perhaps manufactured) turmoil.
