Oh believe me, I love 8 Ball and MJG. I had no idea about the crunk. Can't mention Memphis without Three 6 Mafia!

Most southern rappers are ruining hip-hop and eventually they will overpeak and folks will lose interest. Of course, there are exceptions like J.Cole, Curren$y, Little Brother, Bun B, Jay Electronica, Goodie Mob, and Outkast make good lyrical hip-hop music.

Bun B is not lyrical, thats funny. Much respect to Bun B and UGK, not to mention Trill, but he just isn't lyrical.

Bun B is known to folks who appreciate real hip hop. He has a variety of lyrical content.

I thinly you're mixing him up with pimp c. Pimp C wasn't lyrical. Bun B definitely was a lyricist. One cannot listen to his verse on murder and say he isn't lyrical.
