    I'm from NY and love NY music, but that "movement" is so lame. Good music is good music, who cares where it's from?? Wake up New York, we don't deserve to be first in line to succeed just because we're the Mecca. Just focus on making good music and let each other region live. There's so much unnecessary hating on the South here in NY.

      While I agree that good music is good music (there are lots of southern artists I enjoy listening to), I think one of the main issues is how southern rap has assimilated itself into New York rap, and what made New York rap distinct has slowly receded.

        I agree every region has their own sound, but there's nothing wrong with hybrid sounds coming to life and creating new fusions (A$AP Rocky is a mixture of Texas, Ohio, and NY influences), and that should be allowed. You shouldn't be confined to certain sounds because of where you're born, but I DO agree there's too many east coast artists only changing their style to hop on the "what's hot right now" bandwaggon.

        People need to understand that there is a bunch of New York-rappers who got the talent, but people from New York doesn't support the hometeam as much as they should. Think about Joey Bada$$, Bishop Nehru, Dillon Cooper, Flatbush Zombies, The Underachievers, Astro, Bryant Dope, ANTHM, Sene, Pro Era, World's Fair and so on.

    It is some great music in New York still but lyrics and dope beats just don't get love anymore period. All you guys have to do is research. A lot of people don't have the intellect to listen thought provoking lyrics and rhymes. It's a different generation now and they don't give a damn about what a rapper is saying. They just want a beat and a hook.

      Its a cycle that comes and goes. It's sad to see it's leaning more on the lesser side of music each go round tho.

        content and balance. ive witnessed a lot of hoarding, hating, debating, accepting once someone else vouches, loving, to dick riding along with free passes. for those who write rhymes not suitable for asses. but perspectives and business keeps us looking at black music through bullshit glasses. the question i gotta ask is... what's wrong with hip hop? and how much its gonna take before the bullshit stop? black music and culture from black and brown people. 2013 we need to really stop fronting and really stand up for whats ours and gain control over it. if we don't they gon keep runnin us like we some hoes on the strip.

    Hey I'm NY as well and we've had turn at the mic already,it's time fo other regions around the country to get their turn,it's the only way the culture will grow,but it would ease tensions if the "media-side" of the culture shared the luv on the air-waves,instead of pumping one style of rap and the artists rep their region,instead of rhyming w/these fake accents. Bottom line,it's their turn!
