Thereís a General fashion for NYC but every borough has a specific piece of fashion that makes them stand out.

Pelle Pelle Jackets will immediately expose as you as being most likely from the Bronx/Harlem.

Queens and Brooklyn donít generally wear those jackets.

Harlem and Bronx dudes were also big on Marmoth Coats and B.B. belts.

The problem with B.B. Belts is that people often used to get robbed for them so if you were from Brooklyn wearing one of those and happen to step foot in Harlem or the Bronx, you were pretty much setting yourself up for a sticky situation!

No. Many of the black Americans in Miami in fact can trace their blood back to the Bahamas.

Yes and many of the Black Americans in Miami can trace their blood back to Georgia, South Carolina, and North Florida. Including my family who have lived in South Florida for over half century and friends who have been in South Florida for nearly a century according to their elders.

Facts are Cardi B, 69 and Young Ma, Dave East and Jay Critch are nationally known and are making hits that’s people listen to. That is a fact. Billboards and high social media following shows this.

And the only city in the south competing with NYC is Atlanta. That umbrella term THE SOUTH is hillarious since most southern cities have never produced anything in hip hop other than New Orleans, Memphis, Miami and Houston. Mind you neither one of those cities ever had a throne in hip hop, just 1 -3 artist at a time just making noise.

You don’t see this weird umbrella terms in other regions in the country!
You just 5 names cities, but I'd like to mention Baton Rouge, which makes it 6. It isn't a matter with another city competing with NYC, it's a matter of NYC competing with those cities mentioned. You listed one hit wonders Young MA, Desiigner, who obviously has a southern sound. I seriously don't see how you can objective say that NYC is hotter than Atlanta. Compare NYC's current rappers to Atlanta's current rappers, Instagram followers, YouTube views, and see who comes out on top. Rae Sremmurd kills NYC with Black Beattles. No need to mention Future, Migos, 2chainz, Guccie, Migos, 21 Savage, Childish Gambino, Young Thug...etc.

Maybe that's the problem with other regions, they don't fall under the same umbrella.

Of all time: NYC Is more famous
Right now (contemporary): ATL is more relevant

That is all. Any non rapper from Atl or NYC is irrelevant to this conversation (i.e rappers from other areas of the south like Rae sremmurd, Kodak Black etc). This thread is about Atlanta vs NYC hip hop not "the South" vs NYC hip hop.

Ok so we agree here. Whatís your point? I said Many, showing the difference that Miami Black might have compared to blacks in other parts of the south. Black Americans in Miami even have a slight different taste for food compared to other southeast regions.

Baton Rouge has never had a throne in hip hop or an era in hip hop where theirs were multiple artist coming out. Thanks for proving my point but I’m suppose to sit here and really believe Baton Rouge is higher than NYC in hip hop? Lol yea ok that southern umbrella is a joke to just make irrelevant cities in the south feel good about themselves.

Young Ma doesn’t sound southern at. That’s a troll comment, especially since Young Ma called out people in NYC trying to do the southern and takes absolute pride in sounding Brooklyn.

Stop making things up it’s not helping your argument and if you want to. Please show me a video of Young Ma having a “southern” sound. I bet you going to say No. lol!

Hating on 69 but mentioning Gambino, Gucci and 21 savage and Young thug? Haha ok.
