Aw snap thanks for remining me, I forgot all about her.

Shawna is on the list of the best female emcees, but Lauryn Hill is on TOP of that list.

I beieve they have advanced in beat making......lol but as far as the lyrical content goes especially for the south....... they are lacking when it come to making quality songs.....I believe that in a rap song you should say something that's worth thinking about......Kanye West and other older rappers like Nas, Jay-Z are still in the let's bring back rap movement! But currently I believe that most rap is thrown together and just blasted on the radio daily!

Your wrong about that, the south hasnt really changed that much as far as its music making goes, the biggest change in southern music over say....a decade is the gangsta rapper shit has dramatically increaseed. When the eastcoast & westcoast were on top nobody gave a fuck about what the south was doing. Bottom line is music is supposed to be expressed differently, if everybody in the US rapper about songs with substandence, then that would be old right now.
YES a lot of southern rappers talk about bullshit, but NOT ALL OF THEM, & the reason they talk about bullshit is because thats how they are/were living their lives. There are hundreds of thousand black males who center there lives around sports or music as a ticket to fame & out the ghetto, Education is not a primary importance, so if they dont make as a athlete or rapper, crime is the next best choice which leads to prison/dead.....but thats a whole nother topic
