New York City - L.A. - Chicago - Atlanta
D.C. - Detroit - New Orleans
Shouting out the most prominent cities to have popularized and helped grow the Hip-Hop scene.
New York: Countless evidence of good rappers, some deceased, but the stream of new talent never stops flowing there. Big L and Biggie are both New York natives.
Los Angeles: Most notable for Compton, which birthed Dr. Dre, who in turn birthed life into a lot of fellow talent, a most notable pioneer group being N.W.A. Also Tupac’s birthplace.
Chicago: Need I say more? Kanye West, Common, Lupe Fiasco, and the new rising movement entitled “Drill music”, which in turn references King Louie, Katie Got Bandz etc.
Atlanta: Notable for having more club oriented tracks then taking lyricism higher, it seems to be quite a good trade-off and definitely helps attain prosperity. Examples of Atlanta natives in today’s scene include: Trindad Jame$, Future, Rocko Da Don etc.
D.C Actually don’t know much, so leave a suggestion below.
Detroit: Eminem. Proof. Big Sean. Danny Brown. Enough said.
New Orleans: Birdman, Mystikal, Mannie Fresh, Gudda Gudda etc.
