"Random shouts out to your hometown in songs"


  

          

Jus Lyke Compton came on my Spotify Daily Mix and of course Quik mentioned St. Louis. (314, 636!!)

He got it right with 'hot as a m#thaf#cka, hot enough to make 'ya cuss'.

But the line before I'm not so sure about, 'Movin on to St. Louis, where they country as f*ck. With gold teeth in they mouth, but they still know what's up'

I've heard of folks from E. St. Louis or maybe even Chicago thinking that folks from St. Louis were country but having lived there I don't quite see it.

When I lived in San Francisco, I sensed that some of the people I worked with thought I was a bit country, but I just took that as folks being from a 'real' city kind of being out of touch with 'flyover country'.

Outside perspective aside, do any of you double-take at the random comments artists mention about your hometown?

The most comfortable and wisest people are those who watch their health when they are healthy; guard their country when it is untroubled; and cultivate their fields well when weeds are nonexistent or scarce. - Reverend Dosung Yoo

"Elevate" from the "Scorpion" album

But I couldn't picture bein' Champagne (haan)
When I would buy that shit and save it for the right occasion
I couldn't picture changes when I was with Ms. Craten
That lady hates me
Couldn't picture wifin' Braden when I was pumpin' gas
On road trips to go from Cincinnati on to Dayton

when I wasn't looking - someone yelled out "soft-soft Brooklyn (The Fat Boys - The House)

off top that went into any detail. A couple other "mentions" like Keith Murry - World B Free and a Roc Marcian - Major League. I'm sure there's a few I'm overlooking. As far as the country thing, I've traveled to other states or talked to people over the phone in other parts of the country and been told I had a Southern accent...even though I've never lived anywhere else.

but rappers from Detroit make whole songs about the city on every album they put out and rappers not from here have been literally chased out of town

for ATL tho its definitely Jim Jones on "Walk It Out" remix: "Im talking Magic City, even Body Tap"

god damn i loved Body Tap. lived right down Marietta St from there.

In response to Reply # 16


  

          

ODB from Mariah's "Fantasy":

"Yo, New York in the house
Is Brooklyn in the house
Uptown in the house
Shaolin are you in the house
Boogie Down are you in the house
Sacramento in the hoooouuuuuse!!!!!"

That always stuck out to me because 1) Sacramento out of all cities was the first non-NYC area he shouted out, and 2) I was living in Sac at the time that was on the radio so I wasn't sure if it was just a regional version or remix of the song..

Never knew this.

Sactown is such a small city(granted the capital city of CA but still)that we're used to being takin for granted. When heads think of Cali, they usually think of the big 2, LA & Frisco.

That said, to have someone of ODB's stature from NYC mention Sac like that is kinda dope!

Thas whassup!
