LA's come back HARD the last few years.

ATL still holding its own on its own terms, but feels like it's stuck in a bit of a creative rut due to the explosion of *that* Trap sound.

... and I'm So I'm probably skewing this a lot because of my love of TDE.

Chi has been hands-down my favourite hiphop related city for the last 5 or so years... especially if we can stretch to including the Footwork/Juke movement which seems to straddle the hiphop and house scenes, but definitely "felt" like hiphop to me.

Alot of weird shit is coming out of that druggy trap scene and while alot of it is half assed, they've got a freedom there that alot of 'we gotta be like THIS' rap regions don't have.

I don't think I'd heard a verse by him before. I've heard his name, but never checked for him. This verse piqued my interest.
