I hate this decade rap changed, it just isn't good anymore. It's all about girls, sex, money, and stupid dance moves now. Bring back the old 90's rap please.

Music isn't terrible because of the south, maybe if your favorite northern or west coast artist would put out music that people like maybe people would buy it, New York is one of the most populated cities in the WORLD with triple and quadruple the population of most cities in the south and you mean to tell me they can't or maybe they just won't support their own so what does that say about your artists if you all aren't buying their music and judging by the location you typed in "The Murda" you probably are some young person who doesn't know what real music is, its amazing how some people trash what others like behind their screen names and safety of home.

They weren't born there, but they were based in Miami in the '70s which was when they had their most influencial sound. I remember hearing Barry Gibb say that the rythem of the causeway bridges in Miami was were they came up with the intro to Jive Talking.

better technology, and larger populations in all parts of this country has allowed us to put sound studios in various cities resulting in cities from all parts of The United States + some out of country cities to be influential this past decade

No way was LA as influential in the 60s as San Francisco.

It did, it became very stale around the new century mark And no I'm not a big hip hop kind of guy either but for the 2000's, if you're not gonna give it to ATL/No then who the heck you gonna give credit to? I mean these studio produced and polished insta-bands and "artists" didn't come out of any specific region, just from specific producers. At least the ATL and New Orleans hip hop was a musical movement that had a large influence for a time.
