yea I guess its interesting to know but its completely irrelevant. it doesn't matter. u rep the city u live in where you learn the most and just wanna rep. if someone comes to nyc at age 10 is it not right for them if they start acting like they from ny, irrelevant article.

i dont think it matters if you were raised at said place but if you moved there when you were like 16 and started claiming that city then you're frontin.

pac was the bigger herb of all time. he was raised majority of his life in harlem and baltimore and didnt move to cali until he was like 16.

I like how cats are acting as if this list was meant to expose artists

Some dope info. I never knew Clipse and Pac were born in NY, that's pretty crazy.

Surprised Eminem didn't make the list, but I guess that's more common knowledge than the rest of these.

Complex finally came through with a cool list.
This. Em did make the list though.
