what were you saying about rap music where you're from again?
More words of wisdom from someone who doesn't even know what the world outside of NYC looks like. I don't want to hear any opinions about West Coast rap from some one who has never seen life west of the Hudson. I've lived on both coasts and I have a right to talk about both coasts.

I'm from the Golden State. You know, the place where all your rappers get their lingo, and fake Blood/Crip shtick from. In fact, my hood in Lakeview created familiar lingo that I've heard East Coasters imitate from what Down South rappers have uttered. For example, my hood in Cali spawned the phrase "What's up Pimpin'". And the funny thing about it is that the Bay Area never had to rely on corporate record sales or mainstream exposure to gain such widespread cultural influence. If y'all East Coasters ever went to Cali, you clowns would throw on khakis and Chucks and start Crip walking and twisting up your fingers into W's. But don't do that in The Bay because we don't play that paint-by-numbers color coded Blood/Crip gang banger sh*t that NYers, East Coasters and Down South cats think is so cool.

I'ma let Cellski tell you where I'm from:

rap music where i'm from only carried popular music throughout the 90's and led record sales.
rap music where i'm from only defined a generation.
Yeah, but because of corporate record sales to an over 70% White male suburban audience that buys records from Best Buy and watched your videos on MTV, your songs are the soundtrack to suburban teenage Whiteboy rage which significantly lessens the value of your music. "Shook Ones" and "C.R.E.A.M." are angry Whiteboy anthems. "The young Black youth" original target audience for Public Enemy, KRS-One, Wu-Tang, Mobb Deep, Boot Camp and Nas songs would rather listen to OJ da Juiceman and Gucci Mane because Black kids know that 90's New York music is mostly for well-to-due White folks 30 and older. FAIL. Read about the people who really appreciate 90's New York music here:

If New york rappers have such good business sense, then why are East Coast executives just getting hip to the independent game that made Bay Area rappers like Too $hort and E-40 rich for nearly 30 years! The East Coast is late! We've been eating lovely off of our own independent scratch and not sucking White corporate d*ck. Look at Dame Dash talking about the importance of being an independent artist here:

Third, the West Coast is no longer relevant in the hip hop scene. I mean, it's like totally irrelevant. The West Side had a good run, but East Coast trends and music dominate the West Coast. Those fitted caps they used to don from Oakland to Paris started in Philadelphia. As did the Timbaland Boot. As did the throwback jersey. As did Dickie's. Y'all love our style and mimic it...much more than we mimic the West.
I know a lot of squares on here will argue that Hip Hop has nothing to do with fashion, but it does. First of all, you from D.C. Don't make me air you out. D.C. thinks they are fly, but they are not. No one from other cities wears Solbiato, We R One, Bondacci or any other of those garbage brands y'all sport in the District. I remember when I first moved to Maryland, D.C. cats were rocking cut off shorts, socks to their knees, Bugs Bunny/Warner Brother shirts, Sparkly snap back hats, t-shirts with hoods attached to them and the ugliest Nike foamposites that look like moonboots. Y'all are funny style! D.C. has stepped it up a little recently with Wale, but still...

San Francisco was ranked number two or three on the Most Stylish cities in America list for Travel and Leisure Magazine and number nine internationally by Forbes magazine. We all know New York gets fresh, but to say that the Bay doesn't get fly is not true. All that Dickies and Chucks is a Cali stereotype you picked up from watching Snoop on MTV Jams. The Bay Area has never lacked swagger. The Bay was the cornerstone of the pimp movement for God's sake, of course we get fly. Yeah, the Bay has people who can and can't dress just like every other city. Peep this throwback Too $hort video from 89'. Look at Mark Curry in the beginning sporting the O.G. True Blue Jordan 3's with the "Nike Air" logo on the back of the heel. A pair of those in mint condition from 1988 will cost at least 10-20 stacks today. Look at Too $hort rocking that clean ass silky green Oakland A's Starter Jacket (I had that jacket when I was a kid) and the fitted Varsity jacket with the leather sleeves. If you don't think any of this is fly, you are probably an uncool old dude or someone who cannot dress themselves. Every cool guy rapper from the Cool Kids to Wale to Kanye West spends assloads of money and time trying to rehash these classic looks.

@GoldenChild: Nobody's jocking the West Coast either, why you feel that way idk. The West isn't the place with independent artists making money, you just trying to go in for no reason and not really making any sense. The stuff I heard from E-40 doesn't appeal to me at all, he went kind of commercial too so I guess he "sold out", and I hate to say it but Too Short is passed his prime. I have a lot of respect for the West but what you're trying to do isn't even necessary.

The East does the East and the West does the West.

Because there's only two rappers in the Bay Area.

Not to say that there aren't fake crips and bloods in the bay too... the only crips up here are asian and tongan crips. Why the **** is Messy Marv suddenly claiming blood when he's from Eddy St? Why is Guce claiming blood? WTF did they even have to gain from it when they were already rich and respected in the bay?

His main point, though, is that CA in general gets bitten A LOT by other places. The reverse is also true but not in the same way.
