Hmm...



Guerrilla Fashion: The Story of Supreme - The New York Times

But I guess one guy's experience in suburban Baltimore invalidates the above.

Thats just it I in the South all over and you just dont see Supreme anywhere.Even in the Midwest.
The fact that while there are no stores in Atlanta other than a few boutique stores that seel pieces of the brand should tell you alot.

Also, Wale is DMV artist, so not exactly "southern" to that extent.

Thing is, music is subjective. So it's just personal opinion. I can say the south has garbage lyrics and no wordplay, but the south doesn't find lyrical music "exciting" enough. They call J Cole and Big KRIT boring in Atlanta. The way they process and consume music on a social/cultural level is just too different to even compare. It's like we feed on different frequencies of the brain, the North and South. They're not from a hip-hop culture where you sat down and dissected a whole album, line for line, and piece together leitmotifs they'd discover from song to song and find enjoyment in that. That's a bit too advanced/intelligent for Atlanta. We had simple lyrics in the early 80's until we progressed to actual story-telling and complex poetry, but now we regressed right back to what we evolved from. Thanks, Atlanta? Appreciate your help? lol

If dumbed down music is what they like, to dance to or get turnt up, then that's on them. Nothing wrong with that, it's their culture. Just isn't representative of what hip-hop should or could be, that's what they need to understand. Real talents/artists are being buried because of this paradigm, and I don't think Atlanta will ever see another Andre 3000 if this keeps up.
Um you cant blame Atlanta for something that started in NYC."Dumbed down music" started with Puffy Combs if you ask me continued with the Miami Bass sound,period.
As for Atlanta not wanting advanced/intelligent lyrics thats nonsense as Outkast sold out a concert there months before it happened.
So did Childish Gambino also but so do the " mumble rappers".
Personally I think its the sound not so much the rappers lyrical content. Th sound from NYC is so dated because they ignored every trend from around the U.S..Even when LA/Oakland sound was big,NYC kept its sound.
Even Cali rappers changed their sound

That's why they fell off. They still think that they set trends in the hip-hop culture, and that couldn't be further from the truth. They got left behind. Skateboarding culture in hip-hop has been around far longer than Supreme has been relevant in it. Lupe was doing it over 10 years ago.

NYC hip-hop just isn't cool anymore.

NYC doesn't have a sound anymore, so its kinda hard to judge.
