I Hated Southern Rap Hip-Hop For Years. I Was Wrong.
Greg Simms Jr.

I’ve also always been an east coast rap connoisseur with Jigga at the top of my list. I wasn’t too much into the west either, but of course you have to go with the NWA crew mainly the big 3 — DRE, Cube and Snoop no matter who the fuk you are or where you’re from.

I got introduced to Southern hardcore rap down in TX in ‘08 and never looked back. There was a whole culture surrounding it I.e. Sizzup, slabs ( tricked out candy painted Caddies or Lincolns sporting weird chrome rims) and mouth grills — that boy Paul Wall was crazy with them. Just really unique, authentic shit. I never got into the whole slowing down/ mixing tracks. Houston was the hub for it all at the time. TI crowned himself king of the south, but he never really connected with me.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
