He was talking about Downriver communities that are hard working blue collar. The mood he caught was not ghetto so thats what confuses the Detroiters. South of Detroit is what he meant, but doesnt want to embarrass the fools that shovel million after million into a dead skeleten of a city.

Artistic expression. Most music lyrics don't make sense.

I always thought South Detroit is next to Delray. That mucky strip along W. Jefferson over the bridge where Dexter Bar and Scott Paper was in and beyond. Or should it be called southside of Detroit. I remember hanging in that area when I was a kid. The area was a little more civilized then.
