Over the past eight years, three cities have risen above the rest as the top dog’s of Southern hip-hop; in np paticular order, they are Houston, Atlanta and Miami. With the immense amount of talent shared by artists in the H-Town, A-Town and MIA., it’s a shame that prior to the arrival of artists like Chamillionaire, T.I. and Rick Ross, nobody knew of a single mainstream act from the ‘Dirty. Ironically, the three artists behind the new song, Ridiculous, hail from the three previously mentioned (and now current) hip-hop mecca’s. As long as we are on the topic of ridiculousness, though, let’s mention that Smitty still has yet to release an official album, Trae has yet to gain respect outside of Texas and it took an Usher single for Polow da Don to get his just due.
