If anyone killed Hip Hop, it's the south.
Like I said, when the west coast rap was dominant, It was the golden era of HipHop/Rap music. The beats were better, the lyrics and the hooks were tight. You can't compare 2pac or biggie or Easy E with any of these other rappers, because these are the rappers who put Hip/Hop Rap on the map of the world. Even in many non-english speaking countries... People know these artists.. but ask them about Nas or Jay Z and they won't know nothing..
Its true though, the south has killed hiphop but i don't know if it can even be called HipHop.. I do like Lil Jon though, his beats are tight..
