Haha true true. I love a wide range of music. Still love both R&B and Hip Hop at my core, but my tastes have definitely branched a lot in recent years.

So the fact that Atlanta can capitalize on what Houston obviously could not should embarrass you.Atlanta rappers perfected and made the soun available to the masses.If it was so good in Houston why don't people want to hear more Houston artist?Why get mad at Atlanta for taking to a level Houston could not?

The bottom line is ATLANTA NOT houston is where world wide people repeat songs about or with the "A"or ATL in them.I have never heard people who love hip hop worldwide mention "H-Town".

Thats 2 years more than most Houston rappers ever get nationally or internationally.
But where is Paul Wall?Slim Thug?or any other Houston rapper now?
What is Houston most famous rapper?
I don't think it's embarrassing. I think it's the sound that people appeal to. Houston's sound does not appeal to the masses like that. Never has and never will. That slowed down sound is cool if you want to chill. But if you want to party, like most do, the last city you will turn on is Houston. Now I will say that there are probably more lyrical rappers in Houston than Atlanta. Like I said, South Park Coalition which was deep were lyrical beasts. They just had terrible production. Which leads me to this. But Atlanta had better production than Houston. When people want to chill, they turned on Houston. Everything else, Atlanta. That including the marketing and distribution is why Atlanta was boosted. Same with New Orleans. Let's be real. THAT city dominated the South in the late 90s. Not Atlanta, not Houston. Just about every artists coming from the South was from New Orleans. The sound appealed heavily, nationwide and they had good marketing and distribution.

This was true 15 years ago, but not anymore, even I have been surprised by the number of different types of venues and or shows that have EDM/house music etc, much like tcave said. H Street has been completely revitalized and truly has its own defined urban vibe with a mixture of venues that host performers almost on a nightly basis from various different genres. 2015 DC music nightlife scene is very different, I think some of you feel that since the "mega club" scene in DC is no more so all that's left is lounges and go-go's, but that's not true at all. Go-go if anything is fairly dead in the city, but now everything has transferred over to a much more broad base of what people accept and have a feel for in the city. I've been to numerous shows in the past month who hosted a live rap artist, techno, or EDM, or reggae on the same night.

What I have noticed in DC is that the city is definitely improving it's bar scenes. M Street and Connecticut Ave between Farragut North and Dupont is becoming more of a spot lately. And there's even a Dallas Cowboys bar there. I actually don't mind DC's night life. Lots of spots where you can chill and listen to live music.

Generally, I have heard good things about DC nightlife for all races especially for a small major city as it is. I haven't experienced it much myself but I thought it had a moderate nightlife that didn't seem all too loud and crazy which I prefer.

Yes but some of these poster are knocking Atlanta because they took a genre and made it popular with their own touch.Truthfully all hip hop was influenced by NYC from there its just a matter of rearranging a common sound to sound somewhat different.

New Orleans did dominate in the 90s but as I said before black music is more that just rap and thats what this thread is about.Black culture.
Rap is not the only game in town for Atlanta.Atlanta was LaFace,Rowdy Records,and So So Def.Its scene was varied in black music.
