Solid line up! I would add Soulja Slim to the mix. But UGK was one of my first favorite rap duos. I wrote my reaserch paper on the real messages of hip hop and how it deals with Class Criticism, and got the highest grade in my class. I used this song by Bun B to make most of my points.

Hey there. That sounds like a great creative topic for an English paper!
You're right that UGK is (was, RIP Pimp C) so good.

I love the sound of southern rap the loose vibe the driving bass the nonchalant implied and explicit depictions of the lifestyle..

I won't lie I bump "every day I'm hustling"on occasion when I'm working in my garden..

But..

I do feel a lot of these guys use the regional accent as a crutch..


"Thang" is an abomination ... there are plenty of other real words that rhyme with "hang" or "gang" ..rant over.

Side note ..

Check out "Nathan Jarvis slackjaw"on YouTube for some north country flow

The kid is fire

The south definitely represents in the rap game. I don't dig these mumble rappers like the migos and Kodak black and them. You get a star and a flag. Cheers!

Yea, thats a really good one. My favorite was Ridin Dirty.

I never knew much about these guys, but I remember a few times in Middle School wed be like "hey back back! back back!" in some scuffles. It stayed in use for a few years.


This one was on the radio for while pretty much the last year I was regularly going to the clubs. I think like 08 or 09 or something.


I made alot of mix tapes with these three back to back, especially when we would go to the beach with everybody.


Im still going through the first page! Lots of classics in here.

The lyrics for this one are very appropriate to ATS and CT in general. I remember this beat, but I never heard the song. It was always on somebodies freestyle track, and I don't blame them. Very nice beat to flow to.

I'm really surprised that no one has mentioned Nappy Roots or Arrested Development yet! I would embed some videos, I just dont know the code. S&F.
