What amenities does Philly have that Baltimore doesn't?

As for Southern NJ it's impossible to culturally sepreate it from NNJ/Philadelphia so it sticks to the Northeast
I would also say it's not necessary every year, just most years there is a snowpack (DC/MD haven't had one since 2009/2010 winter I believe)
The weather in NYC, Philly, Baltimore, and DC are pretty similar. Also, there are parts of Maryland that see much more snow than anywhere in NJ.

1) the areas of MD that get more snow than NJ are way up in the mountains. Using the mountains as a metric NH is uninhabitable due to super high winds.
2) NYC gets about 70% more snow than DC, that is Signifigant as well as 5F cooler which allows snow to stick around longer.

5 degrees isn't as significant as the amount of snow the two cities receive. However, I'd assume that DC is no more a stranger to snow than other cities to its northeast. Nor'Easters cripple the whole Bos-Wash corridor usually. Furthermore, it also depends on what part of the DC metro area that snow totals are being taken. For example, Baltimore's snow totals are taken about 5 miles south of the city at BWI. The snow totals in the city and to its north and west are usually several inches more.

There's also Baltimore Freeway ("Freezer!") and a long history of hip hop that Philly lacks. Philly doesn't have the attitude for someone like Beanie Sigel, the Charles Street Bully.

Seriously, though, why didn't Baltimore and DC have anybody on Ruffhouse, Interscope/Ruff Ryders, Def Jam, Rocafella, etc?

Whith this logic you're calling VA a Northern state Rocafella had a VA singer, D Block/Ruff Ryders had an NC group, and do you remember Wu-Syndicate they were from VA but was with Wu-Tang

They probably didn't like the artist presented to them. They had southern artist, however, so it's not like they were bias. Scarface, Ludacris, Yung Won, fien were all signed Defjam or RR. Baltimore seemed to have excelled more with R&B. King Los was signed to Bad Boy until a few months ago, but you know how that usually goes. Los is one the best lyricist out, and I would put money on him being the best at freestyling off the head.

I wonder how Beanie Sigel would pronounce Maryland. Probably not Murlind, I don't believe. That said, I think his accent is a good example of a transitional Northeast accent. He and Jay-Z pronounce a lot of words similarly but Beanie's is a bit more Mid-Atlantic rather than the traditional Northeastern associated with Jay and the other NYC acts.
