All crappy rappers by the way. You proved way St. Louis does not belong on the list.

I actually used to like Nelly a lot, Akon is one of my favorite, Chingy was pretty good, Murphy Lee had like one or two really good songs, Jibbs was okay, J-Kwon had that one really good song that was on the radio non stop for like a year so I guess you're right: STL has produced some pretty good artists, at least IMO.

The only one I ever liked was Nelly and maybe Chingy a little bit. They came out big back when I was like in the 5th and 6th grade, so I didn't know any better.

Rap is not one style Remember back in the day it was about making wds rythm even when they didnt make since People started bringing poetic music into the rap scene ,now it has changed. People have there own style of Rap. there isnt just one style of rap. I cant dance To Nases One Mic in the club. IF everyone had the same style of music it would be very boring. And if it was no good I dont think people would by Nellys album are Young Jeezy album. somebody out there can appreciate what they put out there. But one thing i can say about the south the rappers down here stick together thats why the south is running things right now .The northern Rappers arent doing anything right now because there into to much competion with themselves

When? The only thing he was good at was making catchy songs that the masses liked. As a lyricist, he has always and still is terrible. "It's getting hot in here, so take off all your clothes."= TERRIBLE.

Got to give Detroit some respect though. They are the home of Elzhi, Royce Da 5'9, Eminem, Esham, and more. It was also the home of the late J. Dilla (RIP). Very underrated city.
