This is true. I will say that it's more of a race/cultural thing. For example, I'm sure that there is a larger percentage of black people that know that Atlanta runs hip-hop than there would be with, let's say, white people.

I think even older black folks or anyone not keeping up with the times would probably favor NYC as well.

I agree with that as well. NYC was the only place that really produced hip-hop music during those eras. Most people under 25 would say the south is all they know.

Is Atlanta even famous for hip-hop? NYC and LA were the hot beds of hip-hop back when hip-hop was actually any good.

Atlanta isn't known for basically anything outside of the US aside from it being home to the Olympics in '96. LA and NYC will always be synonymous with hip-hop globally.

I'm a software developer. I could build this site. Think before you type.

A quick google search of rappers from Atlanta is easy to do, and the list is long, and they are all terrible and not famous. I had to youtube most of them to verify that they did, in fact, make terrible music that few people outside of niche fan-boys have ever heard of.

Now let's try that for LA: Tupac, Dr Dre, Snoop Dogg, Ice T etc etc. NYC same thing. Outside of the USA, I bet a lot of fans have never even heard of Atlanta, let alone hip-hop from Atlanta.
