What’s the regional flavor besides accent? What’s unique about southern rap than west coast or Midwest?

This is true.

Coastal Mississippi towns have had an visible Asian community for some decades now. In fact, 90s movie, Mississippi Masala, about the romance of an East Indian woman and African-American man, was based in Biloxi, MS.

Even in my wife's MS Delta small hometown corner stores have been owned by Chinese-Americans for 50+ years.

What's your definition of regional flavor by the way?

Southern Rap consist of a variety of sub genres & the themes of southern hood/general lifestyle. West Coast nor Midwest have originated/coined Screwed music, Horrorcore , Trap , etc.

NC and VA were always seen as the progressive south so those states were more ready to adapt to Hispanics and Asians coming in versus the deeper southern states.
in the north i dont think i ever met a white person. mostly they say they are irish, italian, portuguese, ...

Yes, my grandmother worked at a Chinese store in their town in MS. There was also a Jewish owned store in their town and a synagogue in a nearby town. So, I guess it is a matter of degree and it is similar to how many think that black people in the North is strictly a matter of northern migration, when there are people that have roots in NY that go back to the 1600-1800's.

Well...that is what I am saying. People in other regions have picked up on that and now they are doing the same thing. Hip Hop, right now, has the spotlight on the south. Thus, youth in other parts of the country are imitating the southern themes because they think that is what sells and people are basically just copy cats.


When I first saw Chicago drill music on youtube.....I thought the particular group was from the south. Chicago Drill Music is basically southern trap music. Detroit rap often get labeled as sounding like Cali rap. What does Cali rap sound like other than accents? People in Detroit and Cali kind of sound a like....where as people in Chicago sound southern.

There is non southern sounding rap in the northeast and west coast its just doesnt sell or get listen to outside of their respective regions. Saweetie and A Boogie wit da hoodie are good examples of people very popular in their region with much more limited nationwide success.

Chicago's Drill music is essentially a more hardcore flavor of West Coast Gangster Rap and Trap music blended.

That's why i said mainstream will always do that regardless. When hip hop became mainstream in the 80s, every up and coming rapper was trying to imitate the sounds/flow of NY or when it shifted to West Coast then every up and coming was adding abit of that style. It goes in cycles but that's mainstream.
