"Biggest Rapper not repp'ing a major city. "



I was going to make a post about how hard it is for DMV rappers (Cordae/Wale/IDK) to blow up majorly/distinguish themselves because they don't have a recognizable sound/accent/feel but it got me thinking about what rapper has been able to get the largest without really repp'ing a major city.

And I feel like there are two questions in there. One being name the biggest rapper who isn't from NYC/LA/ATL/Detroit/Miami/Houston/PHL/SF/Memphis (and maybe also Toronto).

But I guess I am asking the question is it possible for a rapper to blow up and NOT talk incessantly about their home city? Anyone do it?

I think about the Clipse (not from a major city) tried to rap about Virginia as a whole which I thought was strange to rep a whole state ( a song about bad news would be dope). J Cole raps about Fayetteville but, does it do anything for anyone?

Anyway, I think I am mudding up the original question. What do you think?
