I have seen different lists regarding the top singles especially in 1995 such as the one from soulsystem.it. I'll give you the top selling but the East still had more depth. Way more in fact in 1994, 1995, and 1996. I'm still not giving the west as a domination in general between 88-96. Especially 88. Ok you have NWA, but what else compared to the East.?

And that's the issue with the genre today. Garbage is subjective but too many people think they have some kind of authority on what is true hip hop.

As far as the subject of the thread, Atlanta today, NYC in the past.
It's for kids, young thug, migos, lil yachty. To me, all these dudes are grade a hot garbage lyrically. They are popular because a, you can party to them, and b, the beat. That's about it. Very little skill tho.

Good point Spade, I'm 31 and I'm from the ATL but this new stuff is so awful. I never thought that I'd be that "I only listen to 90s hip-hop but then again, I never thought that the bar would fall this low. XXL had a " Special Ed" cypher with Lil Yachty, 21 Savage, and other off brand artists. They were off beat and repeated the same words over. Terrible, at least have a good flow. They aren't even trying.

Absolutely. Joe Budden was definitely rude, but I'm sure that he's aware of the people who wouldn't take that. I don't think he would've pulled that stunt with Gucci, or T.I. as those two seem to be about that action.

Meek is a clown too, honestly for trying to jump Safaree over a girl that neither one of them are with.

The Northeast Lost.

Every rapper that you just named should be on the "Short Bus Shawty Remix. Absolutely no lyrical skills whatsoever.

It's funny how people are bragging about an NY rapper having jumpoffs in their city LOL

Thank you. I needed a good laugh today.

So no to drugs. East Coast was running Urban Contemporary in the eighties AND hip-hop. At the same time.
