Why is it that the best rappers ever are from East/Worst from South?


I know the East Coast is like the founder of hip hop and all, and deservedly so that all the best rappers are from there..but with that much proximity the south shouldn't be garbaging it up as much as it is.

Just from the greatest city in the world, sort of, Brooklyn, you have the likes of
Mos Def, Talib Kweli, Biggie, Busta Rhymes, Wu-Tang/Rza, Lil Kim, MC Lyte, Jay Z, Fabulous, Foxy Brown, Joell Ortiz etc etc.

Not to mention the other parts of New York and East Coast... Will Smith, Cassidy, 50 cent, Nas, LL Cool J, Mase, Run DMC,

While the south has T.I., Lil Wayne,Yung Joc, Mike Jones, nelly, Birdman, Lil Boosie Ludacris, Trick Daddy, Soulja Boy (yes he needs to be mentioned), Rick Ross..... Well the south does have Academy Award winning Three 6 Mafia.

I digress

It's safe to say that the South was the downfall of hip hop/rap when you are relying on a guy like 2Chainz to carry the torch.

So are you going to change your name to correctly spell "Jordan" or are you going to just leave it?

Give me that Dirty South and Crunk any day over anything East Coast.

Better still, give me Nor Cal/Bay Area rap, like RBL Posse, Keak Da Sneak, Andre Nickatina, Black C, Too $hort, Mac Dre, N2Deep, Rappin' 4-Tay, Messy Marv, Cougnut, and others.

Also props to West Coast rappers such as Snoop Dogg, NWA, Dr. Dre, Kurupt, Lady of Rage, Luniz, Mack 10, Warren G., Nate Dogg, and Westside Connection.

I wouldn't say all the best are from the east coast.

Oh, and you misspelled Jordan.

So glad my list amused you so much. Are you going to list your favorite rappers so we can make fun of your musical tastes?

So, do all yankees have reading comprehension problems, or just you? I never said anything about being "better," I said "Give me Dirty South/Crunk over East Coast." I also much prefer Bay Area rap over anybody else. I just don't care for East Coast rap, other than Biggie Smalls. Musical preference.

I've always found the standard to be east coast/northern rappers focused more on the lyrics, while in the south, you see prominent, soulful beats that rattle the trunk. IMO, the best in the south>>>>the best everywhere else.
