I like northern Hip Hop more because it is more lyrical. The southern Hip Hop is more commercialized. For me lyrical means talent, and commercialized means no talent. For example, crank dat souldja boy, superman that h, it makes no sense. I could go on with the list. Well that just me. Which one do you like more? and why?

Give me Lil Wayne, TI, Lil Boosie, Gucci Mane, and more..

Southern hip-hop sounds great when driving (with appropiate system) or at a party.

Northern hip-hop can be listened to at home..

I like both.. but would vote Southern if given a choice.

The real meaning of supermanning a ho... is not appropiate for this forum.

Northern, since I love the old school hip hop. Obviously it started here, so that's why I chose it, lol.

the grandmaster of hip hop, Grandmaster Flash, lives in the neighborhood where I teach I always thought it would be cool to write to the record company and ask if he can come to the school and talk to the kids, since he lives right there.

Jersey Guido Hip-Hop, a la D'Jai's (OK guido music is more dance than hip-hop but anyway...)

From Wikipedia:
The Sugarhill Gang were born in Englewood, but grew up in New York City. They recorded the single "Rapper's Delight" which is often considered the first hip hop single.

Other New Jersey hip hop artists include Queen Latifah, The Fugees, Naughty By Nature, Redman, K-Def, Def Squad, Joe Budden, Outlawz, Lords of the Underground, Outsidaz, Artifacts and Faith Evans.


YouTube - Jerzey ***** (Miami ***** Remix) - Fo Onassis

Actually for hip-hop, I tend to go with the West Coast....sorry, lol Although Luda (southern hip-hop) is pretty amazing

I like both to be honest. I realize that NYC came up with it (influenced by us of course) and the correct formula is to have good lyrics but I like lyrics at a Southern angle (Luda, T.I., Andre 3000, Bun B, Wale*, etc). To NYCRican, Soulja Boy's from Chicago and moved to ATL, he's a school aged kid, google superman that h*e to get the meaning of his song (it's pretty stupid once you know what he's talking about). *The guy reps the DMV, so hey...
