Started in Atlanta, then I spread out with it
South Carolina, Alabama, Mississippi
On to North Carolina, Philadelphia, Virginia
From down in Miami where it warm in the winter
This song is something of an anthem for Southern rappers, and Atlanta-based T.I. is one of the biggest of the “Southern Trap style”.
The whole song is an anthem about Southern rappers like T.I., Miami-based Rick Ross, and New Orleans-born Lil Wayne taking over the rap game. Hence, the listing of southern states.
Notice that Philadelphia is not a state, nor is it even a part of a southern state.
