You really gotta be from the South to have a feel for the culture of Southern hip hop. People don’t understand that the original Freestyle Kingz came from Houston. Lil Wayne’s entire approach to rapping is based on UGK and SUC. Imma get off my soap box and list these niggas…

UGK
Three-Six Mafia
Outkast
Lil Wayne
Z-RO

^ Yeah man people who just hate on Lil Wayne just really don’t understand the influence that he has over southern hip-hop. When people of the south think Lean they think DJ Screw, Pimp C, and Lil' Wayne.

Not to put him under anybody, but if T.I. didn’t call himself the king of the south, The south would’ve called Wayne king….And i’m around these southern niggas everyday. And they still put Wayne in they top five. Just because of how he put on for southern culture. Plus them Hot Boys days just don’t die for these people man.

I might be reachin, but I gotta at least mention Gucci. He’s one of the only dudes really keepin the streets in hip hop.

@trill_kots I assume that you would be talking about in “mainstream (southern) hip hop” because the last time Gucci was relevant in there was that song he had with Usher….but if you’re not then you’re incorrect…

I can give you a list of (southern) rappers that “keep the streets in hip hop” cause you say it as if there’s a minimal number of street rappers in the south but I will give Gucci an honorable mention… I know people that really love Gucci but before him we have to put Jeezy in there….
