    I'm on an old school kick, apparently. But really, who is the better of the two groups:


    Run DMC

    or

    De La Soul


    I think it's fair to compare, they aren't from two completely different eras, as in they overlapped ala Magic and MJ.

    I think on pure talent, De La wins hands down, but Run DMC was instrumental with the cross-over appeal. Tim Hardaway crossover ... Run TMC, ah, this is the convergence my former Lumberg was trying to explain to me!

    Your east coast bias disqualifies your vote. Not that we're voting. I don't like polls. But I did like to play "You Talk Too Much" when my ex-wife, well, talked too much. But I digress.

    I don't really think they're directly comparable, and both were great but for different reasons. De La Soul created much more complex music, Run DMC was more base and energetic. I'm a DJ on the side and each works really well for different vibes. If it's more of a chill, loungey vibe De La Soul is instant happy music. If people are dancing, Run DMC brings the house down and starts a party.

    Well it's tricky to rock a rhyme (to rock a rhyme) thats right on time, but Run DMC obviously can making them the kings.

    RUN-D.M.C. any rap group that has the cojones to release a song called "King of Rock" is ok in my book..
