    Does Where a Rapper Is From Matter?

    The days of feuds pitted east coast rappers against the west coast. Each group wanted to prove that their region made better rap songs than the other. The east side though has long faded from their days of glory.

    Question: have you ever consciously sought out music made by artists from a specific place say: rappers from Atlanta, Miami, or L.A? Or do you just pick your music based on the rapper's excellence?

    Nope.

    It's ever better if they are from abroad. I find the accents to be refreshing.

    In the past, it definitely mattered for your public image where you were from if you were rapping. These days, people couldn't care less about where you're from as long as you've got talent.

    Well, people still don't like rappers claiming they're from somewhere they're not, but obviously.

    Nah I don't think it matters anymore, I mostly listen to underground hip hop from countries that I know the language of and it really widens your perspectives and views on the world, there are a lot of great underground artists that are tens of times better than what people know from the radio nowadays, truthful lyrics and straight up poetry.

    The only thing that matters about where some rappers are from is the sound they adopt. When you come from a certain place, your influences will be different than other people elsewhere. I think it's annoying when people just brag and brag about being from a terrible area in the country.

    Spanish rap is pretty cool. I've listened to a bit from Mexico and they have some pretty hardcore artists down there.
