My list was an honest reflection of where Hip-Hop is currently, otherwise I'd put Raleigh, NC in my top 10 because of acts like Little Brother, 9th Wonder, Joe Scudda, Chaundon, and the rest of the Justus League. You may not like the reality of today's music, but it is what it is. Miami, Houston, and Atlanta are now as important to Hip-Hop as NYC and LA. If Kanye wasn't from Chicago, nobody outside of the immediate Midwest would give a s*it about it.

In terms of actual rhyme skills, nobody can f*ck with Boston right now. Statik Selektah is growing an empire with Termanology, Reks, Granite State, Saigon, Lil Fame, and Skyzoo.
It takes a person from Milwaukee to say something like that- Hip Hop has always been prevalent in Chicago- in the forms of dance, graffiti, etc....I think we influence the country more than Milwaukee ever will

I didn't even know this but hip hop culture was prevalent in chicago even in the late 70's. It wasnt as big as NYC or Philly but it was still there.

This right here is the first rap song that came from chicago. I think it was recorded in 78 or 79.

What exactly was your point here? Hip-Hop might be prevalent in Chicago, but that doesn't mean Chicago is prevalent in Hip-Hop. Nobody outside of Chicago or Milwaukee uses "Joe" as a term of endearment. Just like nobody outside of our part of the country knows what the hell "Juking" is. I'd say House music and Latin Freestyle has had more of an impact on Chicago's music scene than Hip-Hop.

As far as Chicago having more of an influence than Milwaukee, I should hope so. After all, it is a city of 10 million people, while we're only beginning to approach 2 million.

Ever been to DC? DC cats say Joe and Moe as a term of endearment more than dudes in Chicago. Actually Joe is kinda played out, and Moe- well thats some gang stuff. I would say more people use the term Charlie, Boss, Cuzzo or Bruh just as much as Joe or Moe in Chicago

Sure about that one MOE???? I'm from Chicago and everybody in my 'hood greeted each other with Moe when I was growing up. Moe is a term of endearment for Black P Stones, PR Stones, and a few others, stay in Mill-town before you try and speculate how we greet each other in the 'Go.

The term Joe was already responded to so I have nothing to add on to that other than DC people got me saying Joe alot now.

The term Jukin is used down south especially Florida (specifically Tampa). They made songs about it so you are wrong again in this thread.

People might say it down south but it originally comes from Chicago.
