I can't argue with this list. Thought my city may have been top 5 but really no city to knock off.

I will say this though the underground Detroit Hip-Hop scene is tragically underrated, from cats I grew up listening to like Rock Bottom(Big Herk- Guilty as Charged one of the great hip-hop albums ever), Street Lords(Blade, Juan>>) Eastside Chedda Boys, classic acts like Awesome Dre, newer acts like Danny Brown and Stretch Money, Dusty McFly, Helluva, Lodge Boys, DoughBoyzCashout(hottest in the streets), lyrical cats like Quest Mcody, Marvwon...

Don't sleep Detroit could easily be in the top 5.

And New York may be overrated they really haven't made much new noise in the last 10 years that's a. Whole era who they got to show the A.$.A.P crew??
exactly if this were 99 then yeah ny easily. But the only rappers outta ny to come out in the last few yrs that arent sh*t are.......that azealia banks chick??? Nicki and that asap crew are straight garbage.

Tokyo is ahead of Tdot?? pretty wack .
"City is mine" ISNT Toronto's anthem , if anything it would be Bacardi Slang, or The Anthem By Kardinal
Chocliar isnt even mentioned? ....... "Lets ride " is a Tdot track that gets love here .
Saukrates isnt even mentioned? ....
Drake the mayor of tdot... i guess because hes the only one getting love outside of Toronto .

You forgot Xzibit and Kid rock give us all of ours.

The D should be top 5 easily. Not to mention the influence Detroit old School scene has had on today's top artist. But these n*ggas don't know sh*t. Damn near every rapper has sample music from Detroit.

On top of that Em is damn near the best in any rap category you can think of.
J Dilla's beats run deep.

i see you ATCQ...

LOL at ppl saying LA should be over ATL. NYC had a hot period and went cold. LA had a hot period and went cold. And during those time, ATL has consistently been making hot music. Name one period in the rap game you can say Atlanta fell off? When Outkast and DF wasn't k!lling it, Ludacris was k!lling it. When Luda wasn't k!llin it, TI was k!llin it. When TI wasn't k!llin it, Jeezy was k!llin it. Even Lil Jon has his run. Name my dog 2 Chainz about to k!ll








Name a rapper Atlanta didn't influence

NYC gave you hip - hop and they cultivated it , they belong there . They gave LA Tupac , lol. Detroit's underground scene is where it is @ , we've always had one of the best when it came to that , and we never had somebody real blow up and really put the city on , so thats is where our strength is @ , and even tho I dont mess with the kid Eminem , him alone , shyts on a lot of cities and their " runs ".

Yes , he's white, but he has actual skills , and can rap , he wasnt on no Mac Miller shyt . The contributions that the city has made to the game are unseen , but only to the people who dont know , and go by what they are fed and arent in the know. Detroit's an important city always for hip- hop and music . Meech helped put Jeezy on , we have effects on the game in all areas .

fu*k that list left out too many artists in BOSTON like NBS and Smoke Bulger....that is hardly the cities anthem and Toronto higher than BOSTON? fu*k that bull sh*t this list stupid

and ayo, how is Nicki Minaj on the list of rapper who rep? how about the WU, how about Mobb Deep, my n*gga AZ, Big L, and both them black starr memebers just to name a few.


and fu*k that jay-z ft alicia keys bull sh*t that sh*t is hardly the anthem its just the latest attempt.

We can go old school with nas new york state of mind, jayz Brooklyn's finest, Grandmaster Flash and the furious five new york new york, even that jarule nas, jadakiss, and fat joe is far superior than that garbage....

only issue I have is the artists they name.............how do you talk about Memphis and not mention Ball & G? how do you talk about The Bay and not mention Mac Dre or Spice? and I certainly dont understand how you talk about Houston and not mention Screw or The SUC?
Man I thought I was the only one that caught that sh*t. Ball and G was puttin it down somethin tough back in like '93, lol. And puttin us behind Cleveland and Tokyo? SERIOUSLY! Lol...

18. WASHINGTON D.C. / BALTIMORE
Rappers Who Rep: Wale, Phil Adé, Tabi Bonney, XO
City Anthem: Wale “D.C. Or Nothing”
Unofficial Mayor: Wale
Why It’s Important: Sure, the nation’s capital is often a.ssociated with the ’70s genre it birthed called go-go, but D.C. has recently transformed into an underground go-to for rappers. With a ride-or-die campaign by Baltimore-born rapper DMX (yes, he counts) and an ambitious preliminary from D.C. native Wale, the community has established a throng of hip-hop hopefuls including Phil Adé and XO. The high-energy pulse of go-go has infused the city’s rap culture with a rejuvenated bounce over the last four decades.



These n*ggas don't know sh*t. Baltimore and DC are two completely different cities and cultures.
