I suggest you do the same thing in regards to using ignorance as a ploy. I think the issue with New Yorkers is that they think their region still runs hiphop. You can listen to the local hip-hop station for any city in the country, and you can see for yourself which city gets more play on the airwaves.

I don't know why there such a debate about something that is backed by facts. Just turn on the radio
My point was not to say NYC "still runs hip-hop", it's in regards to you claiming NYC is somehow insignificant as a result or has no influence due to Atlanta's rise with words like "corny" or saying no one wants to hear NYC artists. It's just blatantly false and shows clear bias. The only real superstar act out of Atlanta right now is Migos, they're the modern day Beastie Boys. If they continue to adapt and diversify, they can have longevity like they did. Neither group has emphasis on lyrics, but their delivery, style, flow, and chemistry is what draws people in.

Other than them, there's no real potential out of that wave, from what I can see. Kinda underwhelming from the city that ran hip-hop for 15 years, I'd say.

Baltimore definitely isn't influenced by NYC. Baltimore is more definitely a southern city. NYC doesn't influence anything around here, I keep telling y'all that. NY might influence Philly, but not us. Baltimore has been heavier on southern hip-hop back when Cash Money and 3-6 Mafia got hot. This isn't the 90s anymore. Generally speaking, Baltimore couldn't care less about NY hip-hop.

That fact Baltimore says the word "yo" so much proves the northern influence. Baltimore dudes dress similar to NYC dudes too. Baltimore looks lime a Northern city not a southern city. The Philly style rowhouses everywhere, blue collar feel, the slang. Baltimore has influence from NYC, Philly, and down south I know I used to live in Baltimore off North ave and Bentalou St. It's a unique place but it's not southern the same way Atlanta, Memphis, New Orleans, Charlotte, Louisville, Little Rock is....

People say "yo" everywhere. Baltimore, I will admit, uses the term more than anywhere else including NYC. Baltimore people don't dress like people in NYC. We don't wear the oversized fitteds, we don't wear the Pelle leather jackets, I definitely don't see where you got that one from. Baltimore has Baltimore style rowhouses, not Philly style. Baltimore has always been a rowhouse city. People claim that Philly looks like NYC anyway.. Baltimore doesn't make that claim. I know exactly where you're talking about, right by Carver High School. Baltimore has always been a southern city, but people think of southern as a certain way. Baltimore is just another version of southern that defies most people's logic. New Orleans and Atlanta aren't the same, Miami and Atlanta aren't the same. Richmond has rowhouses and is nothing like Miami, but they are all southern.

Bro cmon you are really REACHING right now. Baltimore looks just like Philly. Philly looks a lot more like Baltimore than New York. This isn't even up for debate we can post pictures of these cities but I don't feel like going through the work because this has been done before. Richmond and Baltimore look nothing alike, but some parts of central Richmond do favor D.C. though. Baltimore is famous for its club music scene, which is a north attribute because the South doesn't do club music. Baltimore, Philly, New Jersey, Detroit, and Chicago have club music culture though.

Just accept that Baltimore, Maryland had Northern influences...

How is club music a northern attribute if it was started in a southern city? It started in Baltimore. I agree that Baltimore are Philly have SOME similar housing stock, but both cities have a diverse array of styles that is unique to each city.

Maybe you just havent been to real South then, which is below DC. The Eastern Shore is southern, Southern Maryland is the South, but the Baltimore-Washington CSA is NOT southern. Having influences from another region doesn't make a place southern. Hell the entire country has southern influences including New York and New England. Upstate New York towns feel more southern than Baltimore does...

People don't realize that the Mid Atlantic is it's own region independent from the North and the South.
