You're truly an idiot if you do not think all 5 emcees are extremely talented as well as the producing/beat making abilities of Lazerbeak and Paper Tiger. Sure, MK Larada and Turbo Nemesis do a lot of background stuff, like artwork and such, but these guys are absolutely amazing. Find me another 7-9 piece hip-hop group that collaborates as well as this.
there aren't many 7-9 member groups, but off the top: wu-tang clan.
labels is a whole new ball game. i could probably list at least 5 (all-time, of course.)
i love: p.o.s. (even then, only NB), paper tiger and lazerbeak. (lazerbeak was in my top 10 of 2010)
"mediocre": dessa (she's very talented, but her album SUCKED.), cecil
the rest are either too boring or too angry for me to listen to more than 3 times. i've given the posse cuts/albums a good try, as well as a ton of the false hopes installments. mike mictlan is unbearable.
