Trinidad James wasn’t even born in America. He was born in Trinidad, move to nyc and then moved out of nyc when he was a child. He wasn’t born here nor was he raised here. Just lived here for a very small fraction of his life!

But that’s why southern rappers work together because they support even the clown artist that come from their region lol. And the south artist beef with eachother just as much as up north.

I can make a list of south rappers who have beef with one another!

I think that a lot of black NYC slang simply becomes nationwide black slang

That was the case back in the 80s and 90s. Southern slang and Chicago slang is Nationwide now.

The south rappers all about making money and provide for his or her families. It don't matter if the rapper up and coming or already established, collaborations or support give music artists a buzz in the industry right now. Maybe that's something northern rappers need to work on and stop hating on each other.

Yes, the South and Chicago popularized "thot" and "opps", but "Lit" and "thirsty" are some of the most commonly used NYC slang in pop culture these days, it's definitely nationwide. Most kids don't even know these are originally NYC terms because it's so ubiquitous, they just see it all the time in social media and ride the wave.

"Facts/fax" and "catch an L/W" are both from NYC/NJ as well. You can't go on IG or black twitter and not see these terms lol.

"Thot" and "Opps" came from Chicago. I agree, however, no one really knows who started most of what we say at this point.

Yea people use the word FACTS a lot and that is indeed a NYC/NJ term.

Also sometimes you’ll hear people say “son” in various regions here and there!

You mean the ATL rappers because what you speak on is clearly not evident in every southern city Especially your city of Baton Rouge!
