Detroit ghost towns

from Lupe Fiasco – Around My Way Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

The decline of the domestic auto industry really hit Detroit hard, as the big three (General Motors, Ford, Chrysler) are all headquartered in Detroit.

This can also be extended to any small manufacturing town that is effectively abandoned when jobs are outsourced and the local factory (lifeblood of the economy and community) is closed.
