The Geto Boys are the Pioneers of the South my favorite song is My Mind is Playin Tricks on me. I got much love and respect for the Member's of the the Geto Boys: Scarface, Bushwick Bill & Wille D.
My Favorite Scarface Albums are: The Diary in 1994, Untouchable in 1996 and Last of a Dying Breed in 2000. Those albums are so hard it's rediculous. "SCARFACE IS THE KING OF THE SOUTH!!!"
My Favorite 8 Ball & MJG albums are Coming Out Hard, On Top of the World,& Living Legends I also like MJG's 1st Solo Album No more Glory.
Outkast was the 1st Mainstream male rappers from ATL My favorite Outkast songs are Southernplayalistics & So Fresh So Clean.
Like Scarface, UGK was pioneers of Houston,TX also and one of my favorite songs of all time is Pocket Full of Stones. They continue to sell records and put out hard albums. Bun B & Pimp C are Legends.
Luke is a Pioneer of Miami, Florida area also he has like the Too Short of the south and he had the party music.
Mr. Mike from Houston is one of the greatest Mc's to ever come from the state of Texas and the South. He was on the Same record label (Suave House) wit 8 Ball & MJG for many years. His 1st Solo Album Wicked Ways in 1996 is one of the hardest Rap Albums to ever come out. Also his group (The South Circle Click) came out with and Album too in 1995 and that album was hard as hell. He could also sing too and he would sing on his hooks and then Rap he is a very talented artist.
Without these Pioneers thhere would be no Jeezy, Chamillionaire, T.I., Luda, Lil Scrappy, Lil Jon and so on and so on!
If you ask me out of the new southern Rappers I like Lil Wayne - one of the best emcees alive, Jeezy & some T.I. songs.
CLASS DISMISSED !!- HA HA
NAP TOWN FO LIFE!
SCARFACE IS STILL THA KING OF THE SOUTH BECAUSE I SAID SO AND I DONT CARE IF HE DONT WANT TO BE KING OF THE SOUTH BECAUSE HE STILL IS REGARDLESS!
the best ghetto boys album was 1990 scarface is sick

As a virginian i am ashamed this is all we have to offer when it comes to hip hop. The only half decent rapper we have is T.I. It dosn't matter who's the king of the south, rap won't be taken seriously by middle america anytime soon if this is all we can come up with. We need to go back and study 90's rap, the true golden age, New York and G-Funk. Hip hop isn't dead but it's dying and the south is killing it.
