Hottest Hip Hop City currently?

Its been a non-stop avalanche of artists and hit records, you can debate the level of quality but you can't deny the impact.

Most famous city known for Hip Hop Internationally? NYC > ATL - Due to not only being the birthplace of Hip Hop and to having an approximately 30 year run at the forefront (1974 - 2005, shared with other regions at different time points) but also being home to way more iconic rappers worldwide than any city including ATL by a large margin. Public Enemy has been touring practically non-stop for 30 years globally and you cannot have that kind of Rolling Stones/Aerosmith type of run like that unless your on that iconic level just to give you one example.
Outkast and TLC are the only two hip hop artist out of Atlanta that have reached the worldwide fame of the elite NYC greats, I give you that. But like you said, right now and since the mid 90s, the South owns hip hop. Atlanta didn't do it on its own. Louisiana and Florida helped to push the North and West out of the game. IDGAF who doesn't like the fact, but Atlanta is the center of Black American culture and and as the entertainment center that it is, has held its position as the focal point of hip hop. Don't like it (not you directly), too bad. We ain't going no where.

Atlanta took over hip-hop in only 10 years since it's initial debut into hip-hop. Atlanta has been practically running hip-hop for the majority of the time since its inception.

Anyone remember MC Shy D? He's the "OG" of Atlanta hip-hop that set the whole thing off for ATL. (Oh the irony).

Nah. That can't be true. The 90s was dominated by NYC and LA. the 80s was dominated by NYC and various other East Coast cities. The South on a massive level didn't really explode until 97 and that was mostly New Orleans. Atlanta didn't start dominating massively until 2000.

If Atlanta hip-hop doesn't go back at least 30 years, then it is a true statement.

There are plenty of cities that go back 30 years. But New York up until 2003ish was either 1 or 2 at the top of its peak. Atlanta was not dominant in the 90s.

Total was bad boy from New York. Probably should have mentioned 112 instead.
Field Mob I thought was from Albany but I can see why one would name them.
Da Brat always has still does rep Chicago.

Even so there are still more than a few that made a huge impact.You also have to acccount for the producer like Jermaine Dupri who was all over the place producing for Mariah Carey and other artist.
Dallas Austin the same thing and of course LaFace Records

I think you missed the point. The point was that Atlanta took over rather quickly from r a city that wasn't know for hip-hop up until the mid 90s.
