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?

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.

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..
