I use the group field for the main genre's and the genre field for the subgenre's.
Based on this field I let MM create directories.
For example: Group field: Hip Hop, genre fields: Contemporary R&B, Gangsta Rap, Neo-Soul, Southern Hip Hop ,...
Directories are formed like this: \Hip Hop, \Hip Hop\Contemporary R&B,\Hip Hop\Gangsta Rap,\Hip Hop\Neo-Soul,..

It works fine for me right now ! The genre's are high adjustable ! and MM does the Work

I categorize artists by their main genre. Many artists span different genres, but they have a main stay, and that is where I classify them, except for when they release a christmas CD...for obvious reasons. The above seems to work really well for me, and has made it easy for my family to locate what they are looking for.
I use the same system pretty much as MPG for main genre's except I have pop as a sub genre to rock. I try to use sub genre's as a second identifier if I wanted to break it down further.
