Wow. Youngbloodz. Sean Paul was a beast
HOLD UP, you forgot:
This is NOT actually how atlanta took over rap
Nah, that shyt started with Lil John. When he blew up, it put a light on Atlanta and the south as a whole which made a lot of people take notice. Outcast is a great group, but they been around since the 90s.
I'm a huge Kast and Goodie Mob fan but they aren't what put Atlanta to taking over rap. We can have another convo bout them and I'll Stan like a muhfukka lol...
But it was the Crunk era to Ringtone Rap era that Atlanta officially took over, so we're talking what, 2003-2006 when Atlanta's popularity began to overtake everyone else. They had it locked by the end of the decade (late-00s)...
Cats can say Kast was part of old ATL that laid the blueprint, which is true, but they weren't part of the era that ATL took over...
Rap lost its way.
Someone had to take advantage
This song is an exact representation of my life at the time. Had a 91 deville and in San Diego we changed the hook from the 85 freeway to the 805 freeway.
Crunk and garbage ass Ringtone Rap was what put ATL as a powerhouse on the map
They was makin club music that got played everywhere... NY rap was on a chokehold by G unit and the west was dead again with only the Game bein the main Westcoast artist
Then you had TI, Jeezy and lil Wayne blow up which put the south on top
Very dark years indeed from 2004 to 2009, from NY you only had Jay still bein a main act, You had Kanye, TI, Jeezy and Lil Wayne as the other top dogs
A bunch of nobodies from the south droppin one hit singles and then dissapearin... However, trap was blowin in the underground in the ATL and would take ATL to the next level
Continuin' my rant...
