Yeah. I at least wish the good rappers that are here would get more air time (Big Tuck, Tum Tum, etc.).

Rappers are funny nowdays. Its hard to know where they stand. I saw a rapper on TV not to long ago who won an award. He got up on stage and said something to the effect "I want to thank Jesus for my hit "busting the p***y open", Thank you Jesus!". There are alot contraditctions on the rap scene.

At least with the blasphemic, anti-religion, gorey, death metal that I listen to, you know exactly what they stand for.

Man you alright with me....Big Tuck should have been big time a long time ago... He does represent true hip hop in the DFW...Exspecially his old joints. " You can't see me" & " Southside the Realest" man are instant classics. Crazy how the H-Town rappers made it big and Big Tuck and Tum Tum still have yet to get that national exposure like H-Town rappers did.

I am thinking since DFW is getting ready to host the Super Bowl that the Hip Hop Scene in Dallas will take full advantage of the national exposure to the region and show case there talents.

That is very true and generally people in Dallas like to party and dance while Houston take more laid back approach. If you into dancing and partying Dallas is the place but don't be mistaken Dallas has its fair of the hardcore rappers. For people that go to clubs that like to relax, socialize, chopped and screwed up defintely H-Town has that on lock. I think that super bowl weekend a lot of out of towners are going to be shocked at how D-Town and Funky Town people get down in the clubs. Its quite a site to see Dallas peeps vs. Fort Worth peeps in the club. All the celebs & Out of towners will collide on the DFW.

Dallas: All style and flash and little substance. The new stadium is a metaphor for the whole city.

Houston: Substance, but very little style.

Basically, if you like a bland, suburban lifestyle where The Cheesecake Factory is considered fine dining by the vast majority of the populace, the Dallas suburbs are the perfect places for you. Houston has better dining options.

I think thats about right. However, I would say that our neighbor to the west (Fort Worth) has a good combination of style and substance.

Your right about Dallas (glitzy and plastic, but beautiful and clean) and Houston (grity and grimy, but with character) I think. If I had to use a metaphor it would be this:

Dallas was the popular cheerleader in high school that could have any guy she wanted. However, she was ditzy, shallow, and cared only about appearance. She ended up being a useless trophy wife.

Houston was the chubby girl that was kind of cute if you got to know her. She had a good personality but never got attention from guys. She was non assuming and would be friends with anyone. She ended up being a lesbian.

Fort Worth was the friendly girl with lots of character, but was plain looking. She had lots of guy friends, but only a handful of boyfriends. She ended up marrying her best friend and is now the happiest.

Austin was the girl who thought she was popular. She would immitate Dallas and deny it the whole time. She was fake but tried to convence everyone she was real. She (like Dallas) was very pretty on the outside, but was a walking contradiction. She ended up staying single because she though no one was good enough for her.

San Antonio: see Fort Worth.

Great metaphors. I can certainly agree.

That's because Big Tuck and Tum Tum are in a word, garbage. That entire DSR crew bit Houston's style. They are terrible lyricists with mediocre flow and subpar content. They are just not very good. I know there is real hip hop. Sadly, the best ever to come from Dallas was in a car crash. Dallas has talent. But that talent does not consist of Big Tuck and especially Tum Tum.

Oh and Houston rappers are significantly better than Dallas rappers. It isn't even close.

Really and Mike Jones aint garbage !!! H-Town rappers are not significantly better than Dallas rappers but they are better that I agree on. For the most part southern hip hop sucks but it sales. I never would have thought a song called "Stanky Leg" would be a big hit but it is. It shows just how mediocre the rap game is now.

Thats a little extreme. Big Tuck and Tum Tum arent the best rappers out there, but they arent bad. For Dallas theyre pretty good.

Houston does have better rappers, but most of the rappers I know from Houston also suck. Mike Jones comes to mind. Dont tell me it required any talent whatsoever to slow down a record (Chopped and Screwed) and have the same song only slower and call it a remix.

The bottom line is it requires no talent to rap nowdays. Now Metal and Jazz, those genres require talent for the instruments even if it doesnt take talent to sing in a metal band.
