What hip hop super group will reign supreme??

This is the first in 4 part series on what Hip Hop Super Group will reign supreme in the years to come! Go to facebook.com/iamqdot to cast your vote on who you think will take over!



The hip hop super unit or label or group or whatever you want to call it isn’t a new idea. Hip Hop has always somehow been built on crews and affiliations (see: Native Tongues of the 90s afro centric conscious hip hop movement, Dungeon Family of Atlanta and others…)

But now we see Hip Hop groups and labels similar to sports teams. Everyone playing roles in front and behind the scenes to overall team success and since the NBA season is pretty much done with a lockout I’m curious to see what hip hop super group is poised for a championship and who is poised for a long run dynasty in your opinion.

The contenders profiles are as follows: Young Money, Roc nation and Maybach Music.
