Crucial Conflict could easily be mistaken for a southern rap group but they got that West side/midwest flow

and i agree with the bolded.

For the 90's, the North. For the 00's, the South.

I used to be biased toward Southern rap but since I've matured and most mainstream rap nowadays is lacks substance or sugary pop(alot of which comes out the South) I've grown to appreciate quality hip hop no matter where it comes from...

I tend to prefer rap with a meaningful message

Default How about underground vs mainstream?

It's not even that only southern is commercialized anymore, it's all of mainstream Hip Hop. Just take a look at what Eminem is doing these days. 10 years ago he was dissing the entire pop world, well now he's part of it doing songs with Rihanna and such. To answer your question though, I'd pick Northern & East Coast Hip Hop any day. I would also pick underground. Below I linked 2 songs very similar to each other, only one is an underground east coast hit and the other is a "dirty south" mainstream hit.
