iight everyone calm the fuck down! He's not sayin that southern rap be butt! But, he is sayin that its simple and it is. Hes not sayin its horrible or nuthin. That music is simple, the beats dont involve nothin special and the lyrics arent exactly lyrically superior and the skills aint as high! And its tru, tis still good, but it aint real intelligent

So, is that why our "dirty south" artists are some of the biggest in the industry, right now?

Or how about the fact, that my man Luda has sold "more records that Elvis," as he so proudly and rightfully so, boasts in one of his songs?

HORSE SH**! All 4 corners and in between,contribute equally in the rapworld.Just cause u ain't from NYC or Chicago or L.A etc doesn't mean u ain't ever been in the stuggle. Whats goin on? Remember when a bunch of artists got together and did this song.I can't believe we critique down to a tee! N***as,thats stupid! Even countys livin in the same state got beef. I can't believe theres such a thing as rap predjudice! Thats just stone wack,like some of the above comments.

Man 50 bites on southern styles...50 is the only NYC artist tite cause he makes that the same watered down club shit....

The south is the shit. We make our music with soul unlike the mechanical, industrial north. Dont hate caues we got more complex beats, better hooks, and much better flows. Lyrics...hahaha i rather hear about sex drugs and rock and roll, not how you will kill me lyrically...

Im ill with the mental, sharp like a pencil, kill ya with the light travling metaphysical...hahaha shut the fuck up nyc.

sick my duck!
