Rick Ross been up on Vacheron since 2010I know 1 song title on Rick Ross' next album.
"Last night I cried tears of joy
What did I do to deserve this?
Vacheron on my wrist a year ago
I didn't even know the bitch exist
Quarter milli for the mothafucka
No insurance on the mothafucka" -Rick Ross
"Tears of joy" Teflon Don 2010
I said New York ruined hip hop
The South brought it back
I'm a Midwesterner, so I don't have much of a dog in this fight as far as defending a particular region, but it seems the south took advantage of a situation where east coast rap was in disarray. That and technology was making it easier for literally anybody to be heard, for better or worse.
With that being said, NO ONE can say they've contributed to rap/hip-hop the way NY has. They are the originators, no matter how you try to spin it.
Objectively speaking, does anybody even have a southern rapper in their top 5? Scarface is the only person that even comes close to being deserving of a spot, and you're a fool if you think his greats list isn't at least half NY'ers.
I have nothing but southern rappers in my top ten
A top 5 is all opinion, its YOUR top 5
Ny ran hip hop up until the late 90s
That's 20 years of southern dominance
Ny had it for 20 years
I'd say it's even
What 20 yrs was the south running hiphop ??
