Dynamic Duos In Hip-Hop

As i was in my car today comin back home from school, "Victory" came up next in my ipod. And as i was jammin my ass off to that track, i started to think.... who was or is the illest duo in hip-hop all-time? Im talkin about two rappers that shared instant chemistry together, back 2 back on tracks and straight body them!! On that "Victory" track we all know Biggie smashed that, but Puff ripped it as well (probably with a little help from Big or Sauce Money). So a few names i came up with i think makes the cut:

Biggie & Puff
Puff & Mase
Biggie & Jay Z
Mase & Camron
Jadakiss & Styles P
Ghostface & Raekwon
Redman & Method Man
Q-Tip & Busta Rhymes
Nas & Nore
Nas & AZ
Jay Z & Beans
Smoothe Da Hustler & Trigga Tha Gambler
Dr.Dre & Snoop
Redman & Keith Murray
Fat Joe & Big Pun
DMX, Jay Z & Ja Rule (The Original Murder Inc.)

Well those are a few, but i think thats a good list!! So i ask u my fellow hip-hoppers, which of those duo's is the one for u! Please choose 1 and put why u chose them!! Leave ur remarks in Comment Box or Chat Box. Im gonna let this question ride for awhile so i can see what yall think!
This is a good one people, give it some thought. Me personally i cant just choose 1 right now, but the obvious choice would be Big & Jay, but my darkhorse choice from outta no where would be ...... (i know im gonna get killed for this, but this is how im feelin at this moment) Mase & Camron!! Im sorry people, but these 2 niggaz was just ill together for a brief period of time. Now let the atonement begin!

I loved Nice 'N' Smooth.
Especially the joints with Gangstarr...

I gotta say Mac & Brad, or Face & Beans.

p.s. Jadakiss ghostwrote Puff's verses for Victory. He was also supposed to write his verse for Mo Money Mo Problems, but didn't so Mase hooked up Puff on that joint.

Where the fuck is Billy and Fame?????? There can be no question... if you talk about duo's this one should be number 1! Also, Primo and Guru!!

Am I Blind or did u miss big & 3000?

If it was my choice I'd say Hav & P, Mos & Kweli, and/or Pete & CL. Mobb & Pete/CL simply because they had it all.. rhymes AND beats. Blackstar for being lyrical geniuses and doing most of their best work together.

If its from your list.. Ghost & Rae. Only Built for Cuban Linx!

You had me thinking. One of my favorite collabs was Royce and Em. That bad meets evil joint was straight bananas!!!! Even the artwork was some next ish. Kiss and the ghost is straight classic too. I can't say the same for a lot of these new cats. Kinda sad. If we we're to talk on the beat end though anything with Common and Jay dilla was nice too. You're gonna have me digging the crates today.
