South Central L.A is the most popular I'd say.

"The Town" sounds incredibly stupid & unimaginative as does "Oaktown" "Bright Side of The Bay" & "Detroit of the West".

Fort Worth's cool city nicknames are "Funky Town" or simply "The Funk". It was called "Murder Worth" when you were still in diapers.

Dallas is where the East ends & Fort Worth is where the Wild, Wild, West begins.

Fort Worth was -- and apparently is -- called "Murder Worth" by fools only. And like I said earlier, if you went around telling people you're from "The Funk," you'd mark yourself as a complete idiot.

Oh, and people in The Bay Area call Oakland...Oakland.

You mean Crown Heights, Brooklyn? That's not famous at all. The area to the east (Brownsville) is way more notorious.

Cam'ron didn't put the Southside "on" or make us famous. The Southside became famous because of the early 1900's gang wars. Back in the early 1900's there was a gang war in Chicago between the Northside Irish and Southside Italians. And the Southsiders won the war, establishing a nationwide reputation as a rough place before Cam'ron's mother was even born.
