Like many other long-gone staples of Rap Music, the Rap Duo is a veritable dinosaur in today's playlist-driven music industry. Whereas in the past, you had groups like EPMD, Run DMC, A Tribe Called Quest, and De La Soul (DJ's don't count, sorry), today's landscape is completely devoid of duos, unless you count Outkast, which obviously I don't. Among my favorites from this bygone era in hip-hop is New York duo Nice & Smooth. Comprised of Greg Nice and Smooth B., they combined humor, wordplay, and funky sampled beats to create some classic material.
Here's a few of my favorites.
"Hip Hop Junkies"
"Funky For You"
"Dwyck" (which is actually a GangStarr song)
"Sometimes I Rhyme Slow"
Question: What's your favorite Nice & Smooth song? Who's your favorite rap duo of all time?
