This is the "disco" era for rap music, a very few truly talented acts (ex - Chic, Barry White, Gamble & Huff/Philly Soul) in a ocean of catchy but highly disposable and highly forgettable crapola. That's the reason the acts from the Motown Era are known and still treasured to this day while most couldn't tell you the name of any disco groups or titles unless they grew up in the 70's being fans of disco.

The same can be said about French Montana.

Detroit, and LA are the only two places that aren't putting out garbage.

98 and 99 was also shared between Cash Money and Ruff Ryders. 1997, I'm giving that to No-Limit and Bad Boy.

So numbers show what i said was correct.

Westcoast era at the top was 88 - 96

No need to show numbers for 96 because Pac went crazy.

I see why you put LA, but notice that it's LA and NYC that dominate the charts. I'd give a slight edge to LA for that time period tho.

Atlanta has had a constant stream of artist for over a decade now. Some were one hit wonders, and others are still here to this day Jeezy, Gucci, TI, 2 chainZ. Also, the same year that 50 Cent was the biggest artist in rap, the biggest selling hip-hop album was released by an Atlanta rap duo. Atlanta has just had a constant barrage of artist for over a decade now.
