You don't even have to migrate. The music and social media will spread slang far quicker than migration.

Also sometimes you’ll hear people say “son” in various regions here and there!
I personally don't hear people says "facts" or call people "son" outside of New Yorkers or its inhabitants.

Here in Baltimore instead of "facts," they say, "already" like, 'you already know.'

You don’t have to hear it. You can see it all over Facebook comments or Instagram etc in reference to “facts”.

And I’ve definitely seen Chicago drill artist use the word facts many times!

Default Female Mc’s

I have been reading through the post and have previously posted before. I have been nostalgic for hip hop recently and have been going though some videos and YouTube’s of some notable Philadelphians in Hip Hop like grand masters of funk, steady b and others and have reached a conclusion......Despite all of this debate about Atlanta.....being this or that....The famous female MC’s from Philadelphia were devastating with their lyrical flow and cannot be touched by the current crop of (so callled hip hop rappers ) from Atlanta - men or woman now......I was just listening to the complexity of what Bahama Dia has done......Eve was a potential monster in the mic and could dust off most fellas, Charlie BALTIMORE was pretty good also .....Lady B was the first female on wax- and her style seems dated today, but was nonetheless critical in the development of the genre. Sime from Atlanta have claimed Lisa Left Eye Lopez but she was in fact from PHILLY and you could tell by her attitude and ryming ability......even though she didn’t rhyme much.......yu could tell that it was in her....by her few rhymes recorded.

Again, I will say that music played todaythat is being described as hip hop pales in comparison qualitatively to the golden era hop and the artist that I mentioned above, the females in particular exemplify their quality in their products .......Go and listen to 3 the hard way by bahama dia and I recently saw one of her live performance videos......she is for real ....she’s not acting for some camera like the so called rappers today......her steel was sharpened by steel in a hip hop cauldron (Philadelphia and New York ...boy referred to as hip hop metropolis by black bought of the roots) where only the best cream rose to the top........it seems like today everyone on the radio just recites the same old 3o words at a slow pace and kick in with a “yeah” and expect the true hip hop audience from the golden era to applause.........frankly I just scratch and shake my head and wonder how this art form has fallen so low.............I guess it’s sort of like boxing today, the best seeem to avoid the best . ........back in the day the best were the best because hey took on all takers and fought the best and fought 4 or 5 times a year. Unlike today where fighters fight once or twice a year.

Also, I was listening to some pop 40 the other day and noticed that the pop 40 ryhmers on the pop 40 songs are rhyming better than the so called hip hop songs today......

Thats like Madonna out rhyming Big Daddy Cane.....can you imagine? And I guess the audience from Atlanta is probably thinking, what’s wrong with Madonna out rhyming big Daddy Cane so long as Modinna sells more records and makes more money, everything is fine......if the Art form wasn’t so debased, simplified and diluted down to the point where anyone could do it, Madonna couldn’t outdo Cane..........but sadly enough in today’s world, with what passes for Hip Hop, Modonna can out Ryme Cane.

To revive the art form, it may have to go back to its live, competitive, improvasational roots.

Kids and young adults today don't remember the rappers that you've mentioned. They know about the southern rappers today. We don't really argue album sales because the dynamics of the music industry has changed so much, that actual units aren't as easy to keep a tally of. One particular New Yorker suggested using Instagram followers to further his case.

Not with Atlanta around, you can kiss that goodbye. They culture vulture'd their own culture lol. Played right into the industry's hands. It's what happens when you support the wrong people for the wrong reasons.

You do here facts. Didn't know that was a NY/NJ term. But you do see it. I meet nobody that says son in any region.

I don't know if I said it in this thread, but I grew up in the 90's 2000's T Payne and Lil John almost killed hip hop. I listen to main stream stuff and Lil John and TPayne were nails on a chalkboard. Get Low Get Low Get Low.
