Rapper express crime, drugs, and all that, and I guess it's not the best way to express a city, but it's talent.

How about the people who came from NJ Cities who just sing great without representing a particular city?

Nirvana was definitely Seattle, but not sure "Smells Like Teen Spirit" had anything to do with the city.

Actually the Yankovic parody does mention Seattle, ("a garage band from Seattle, well it sure beats raising cattle", hope that's fair use. I'd hate to get sued by Yankovic) but I'd agree that it's not exactly about Seattle.

OK, if you are going to mention songs like these, you MUST include Glen Campbell's "Wichita Lineman", one of the most under-rated pop-country songs of all-time!
