And then on the flip side of this phenomenon is Nelly. A Black Hip Hop artist from St. Louis for those who don't know. He's always had a bit of a southern twang in his rap. "It's getting hot in hurr" but for a while now he has been going more and more country. He teamed up with country group "Georgia Florida Line". Modern White country band that sounds kind of urban meets urban Black rapper that sounds increasingly country.

He also does a song with Tim MGraw.

Lorton definitely is once.you get to Woodbridge forget about it, it's like Georgia down there. Fairfax same thing once you get to Centreville and Manassas you might as well be in Texas. The suburbs of Baltimore I mentioned border the city thus having a greater influence. In fact there are parts right in the city that fit the description.

Are you kidding me? Lorton is not an exurb, no where in Fairfax county is an exurb. The exurbs are Stafford, Fredericksburg, etc. Centreville doesn't feel like Texas either, you are really speaking nonsense right now. Also, Lorton is not southern the only place in Lorton that feels southern is Gunston. Have you been to Lorton before? Go to Lorton station and silver brook road. Meet the people and residents there. It's very diverse, you clearly have no idea what you're talking about.....

Also a place being southern has nothing to do with it being an exurb. Do you know what the word exurb means?

I don't get the comparison to Texas as well

Nelly lived across the lake from my house when I was living in Lake Saint Louis, Mo
Never met him, but you would occasionally see him... his neighbors said he was a nice guy.

Which brings me back to my statements of a few pages back (even though I said I was done)
There is a lot of Hick-Hop behavior in the Saint Louis Metro (and its not just in the "far-flung" exburbs)

I have to confess that when I first read the question, Tennessee and Alabama immediately came to mind thanks to these guys.

Coming out of rural Tennessee.....

It operates entirely on the existence of the n word and has the additional connotation that the user feels there is something wrong or inferior about black culture,

In England what y'all have been refering to as "whiggers" might be more common than in America. Only in England they call them Chavs.

It's even more odd that so many Chavs exist in England when you consider how few Black people there are there.

White trash...it's everywhere. Not unique to down south. Plenty of towns and cities in New England, Northern California and the rest of the country that are populated with these types.
