The Hip-Hop Duo: EPMD (Erick Sermon and Parrish Smith)
Why They Broke Up: Legend has it that in 1991, Parrish's house was burglarized and one of the men who was arrested for committing the crime told police that Erick had put him up to it.
Why They Should Have Stayed Together: Well, in this particular case, we wouldn't have blamed Parrish for wanting to get the hell of the group if the story above was true. But, these guys got back together later and then wound up breaking up again to work on their own solo projects. And, while we enjoyed some of Erick's stuff when he was on his own, we would have preferred for them to stick together through the years.
