    No I dont, what does that have to do with Hip Hop or this topic?

    U know what nevermind on that Stew

    But back to the main topic

    how brothers drop out ... in the sixth grade -- some of them because they have to go to work, some of them because of the poverty, some because they're not interested in the education system

    How is that just a South problem?

    He's not saying it's exclusively a southern problem.

    People don't align South Florida with the rest of south.

    It's too fundamentally different

    When my lil cuz moved down south they skipped him two grades. The south has always been backward. Nyc has always been forward thinking. Showing pics of buildings means you miss the point. In nyc you can walk down the block and hear ten or more different languages. In the south every body is the same and the land you do own is not valued as much as what nyc people own. Because the south overall is worth less.

    ^^^^^^^^^This is the type of shit that gives NYers the asshole, uninformed, always hating somebody or something stigma

    Great Example

    I travel alot and alot of people still think we are hung down here..It actually shows the ignorance of the other party.. Region haters are the most silly sounding people in hip-hop..the thing I dont understand is why alot of East coasters hate on the south..? But sample our music, get southern mc's on the records to sell them? we didnt hate on yall like that...They did the same thing to the West when they started shining.. its garbage rappers from every region..smh

    more land=less value on said land.

    Listen you motherfucking fag a small house in nyc has a higher value just because it is in nyc. The acres of land owned does not equal greater value of said land.
