Ha! fu*k it, southern hip hop fans will buy anything as long as it is on a lex lugar beat....might as well sign someone with a fanbase....
name one sh*tty a.ss rapper from the south(im not talking about average level rappers like lil wayne, jeezy, ross, and t.I) that went even gold down here.
The singles might get play but thats where it stops. Just look at album sales. The only one who sales is lil wayne, and ross right now. Ross only went gold.
All those other rappers are basically stuck with ringtones and clubs songs.
