Mob Mentality: 12 Hip-Hop Crews, Clans, and Gangs to Watch for the Rest of 2012

YMCMB

Year Formed: 2005
Group Leader: Lil Wayne

As the most statistically successful crew in rap music, YMCMB often faces backlash for their pop appeal. Drake and Nicki Minaj are superstars beyond the realm of hip-hop, and purists may shun that, but it's obviously great for YMCMB, and really, the genre as a whole. Lil Wayne is a fraction of his former self at the moment, but he's still an in-demand artist, and the YMCMB roster is so stacked, that Weezy's current focus on skateboarding doesn't particularly hurt them as a collective.
