That's very true. Atlanta artist never conformed to the NYC sound during NYC's reign. NYC has no choice but to fall in line.

Where do you see the word "selling" in the post you quoted?
But you still skipped over Andre 3000,T.I.,Big Boi,2 chains,Ludacris,and Future in that list f Top 50 rappers! Atlanta is teh only other city than NYC with as many on that list despite it being MUCH smaller with overall less notoriety of NYC.
Sorry but once again Im seeing some "hatin" goin on.

Many havbe said that Trap music is not well know outside of the U.S. Clearly if its jumping into new genres it is not .Especially using an Atlanta artist known for trap music

No, I didn't. I listed them in the order in which they appear on the Googles.

Jay-Z
Eminem
Notorious B.I.G.
Nas
2Pac
Dr. Dre
Kanye West
Snoop Dogg
Lil' Wayne
Kendrick Lamar

That's the Top 10.

First time you said "Top !0" but I guess...

Okay well the top 10 I posted was the top selling artist and it had a few Atlanta artist in the top 10.Argument can be made that those artist are also the most famous if they are selling more records

And depending on which source you use that list you posted also changes. Of course NYC has the dept as I've have already stated but thats reasonable as it started it and its much bigger for much longer time before other regions caught up.

I know NYC is the birthplace, but I don't see how Atlanta doesn't win this. It's the mainstream city of rap for anyone under 35.

One thing about Atlanta is that it's constantly name dropped by rappers who are and aren't natives of Atlanta. It's free marketing. Ludacris, Jermaine Dupre, Kanye, Jeezy, TI, Gucci Mane, Outkast, Future, Metro Boomin and everyone that works with him, Lil Jon, MIGOS, Shawty Lo, Designer, YNF Lucci, Lil Scrappy, Rich Homie Quan, 21 Savage, Ying Yang Twins, Young Dolph, Yung Joc, Ciara, Redman, Young Thug, 2 Chainz, Chris Brown, Rick Ross, Usher, Nicki Minaj, K Camp, Lil Wayne, etc, etc, etc, etc. That's maximum exposure.

"Welcome to Atlanta where the players play" is still popular and "I got broads in Atlanta" was arguably the most quoted music lyric if not the year last year, then the summer. Everyone was saying that. Even Canadian Drake has gotten on the bandwagon with "Houstatlantavegas."

Both cities have a "Love and Hip Hop" show, but if the show "Atlanta" had the same premise but was called "New York", it just wouldn't feel right with todays generation. NYC feels very "posh" now, while Atlanta still has a "dirty south" reputation.

And when it comes to the feud from the 90's, most people see it as the "east coast/west coast feud" rather than the "New York/LA feud" even though that's what it basically was.

NYC is the undisputed birth place and produced some great acts like Jay Z, LL Cool J, Diddy, Biggie, 50 Cent, DMX, etc, but in todays world, I think Atlanta is the easy winner.

Where exactly did you get your results? I'm asking because I done Google searches of the "most famous music artists" and you'd see Lady Gaga, Elvis, Madonna, Beyonce', but MICHAEL JACKSON wasn't listed. And we know that MJ is more famous than any other musician ever.

I Googled "most famous music artists" without quotations and got the following.

The Beatles
Elvis Presley
Michael Jackson
Madonna
Elton John
Led Zeppelin
Pink Floyd
