dirty souf is wack. lyrics is stupid, sayin the same ish everytime. who wants to hear about grillz and rims all the time. NY is where its at. Put on a ghostface track and then try and compare anything anyone in the south says. all they can do is sell cars and gold fronts. nobody has anything to say about life. that sh*t is corny and commercial that's why they all sell so many records. Britney sells mad records too, why? Cuz she's a fly bitch, just like all the south coast, a buncha bitches. I aint gonna defend 50, but F the south.

50 Cent always has something to say about something or somebody, but now, hes goin 2 far. Im from the south, and besides Outkast, Luda, UGK, lil wayne, and Scarface, we have some unheard talent down here. Dis nicca cant even come down here, so he cant speak on something he doesnt know much about. Buddy cant even go back to his old hood anymore. Bottom line is hes a lil niccaa. He hasnt been around long enough to put in his two quarters about "Da Bottom" I respect 50's business tactics, but thats it. I dont like the nigga. Ay 50 G UNOT!!!!!!!!!!

One more thing, whoever put a post up dissing the south, bring yo ass down here and say dat shit. You dount see niccas down here bad mouthin NEW York.

The only reason why buddy is alive is cuz he rolls wit like 100 cops. I dont know, maybe Im gettin 2 heated over nuttin. But dis fool needs to keep his jaw closed before it gets blown off.....again

Hip Hop invited dis nigga in. The fans, and the people of hip hop. Now its up to the people to kick him out. Dis nicca is ruining rap wit his bullshit flow and his snitching. I say people should come together and get rid of dis bitch. Boycott 50!!!

Ghostface ain't even from the NY, he's from Little Rock, Arkansas (that's right, the dirty south!!) Southern rap ain't always about rims and grills. I'm gettin tired of hearing east coast rappers talking about shooting a nigga knowing they ain't shot nobody before, probably not even a b.b. gun. I'm not gon lie, i like all kinds of music, but 50 ain't that hot while he talking.

"50" dont know what he is talking about he does it for media attention. The south has been on the seen for a while let give you some legendery artist for example, Eight ball&Mjg,three 6,No limit,Cash money$$$,Out Kast,J.Dupri(the "brainy don" of the buisness)he has been producing for many years, And thats a proven fact, way before "50" was a nobody.

Don't forget, Arrested Development & TLC (2 of my Atlanta favorites, I know they came a little later, but they were still big before 50), and I know there are more, I just can't think of them right now.

Naw, 50 got it messed up because it's different types of Southern rappers. You got UGK, Trick, T.I, Jeezy, and others who do their thing, and then you have people who messed da game up like D4L, Franchize, and many more, but 50 can't talk he's lame. Don't nobody listen to him down here cuz we know he's fake. On the other hand we love Da Game, and don't get it twisted cuz we listen to Jada, Dip Set, and other real people from Da NY get respect down here, but every got their own opinion.

I agree totally with 50's comment the whole southern hip hop genre subtracts from the building blocks of hip hop it is the laziest form of hip hop to date. The lyrics are baseless, repetitive, un original, boring. The dirty dirty south stuff is really great for strip clubs and what not. But us as black people we need to come up above the set program of which is being force fed to us. Some of us still have common sense and realize true talent when we hear it not just because its the fad for the moment. Wake up! all that garbage sounds the same lol..BUT some are ok but not enought to where these folks are grammy and Oscar material

You know what even as i read the comments of others from the southern area I see why you all are so gung ho with your form of rap. Its becuase the rest of America took u in and embraced you, We gave you the steering wheel but you fellas aint goin nowhere with it. Give me a blockbusting southern style hip hop track that doesn;t sound like a titty bar and I'll shut the hell up i really do miss the true talent of lyrical artist like Rakim Krs Biggie Nas 2 pac Cube Jay Z. There are a fresh bundle of artist that do spit true knowledge but it'll be a long time before they get to commercial cause the labels are enjoyin what little money they can make of the crunk crap. So if u are an aspiring artist u have that to battle and overcome not another MC but a hole genre that is wack.
