What region has a choke hold on the rap game right now? None. We’ve went through phases of regional supremacy from the West(G-Funk Era, Gangsta Rap, etc…), East(Boom Bap, Mafiaso, etc…), and South(Crunk, Snap, etc….). Rap has evolved tremendously since those days and most of those subgenres don’t even exist anymore. In today’s hip hop, you usually can’t even tell where a rapper is from unless they tell you. Rappers such as Drake, J. Cole, Big Sean, Wiz Khalifa, and Kendrick Lamar may rep their hometowns, but won’t reflect a regional stereotype. The culture is spread all over the country now. My question to you is what region do you think had the best run in hip hop? and do you ever think there will be another regional takeover?
