“The south runs music period. They don’t just run one region, one state, one genre,” says Waka. “Kendrick Lamar made the bar look West, but the South’s still winning. It’s friendly competition. Some people just get carried away.”

The “O Let’s Do It” performer also discusses the death of his brother and his tour.

    Not this shit again! Who cares who runs what, just make music.

    • Rmfag

      It’s about disrespect and trying to make a name for yourself in the least way possible. I don’t know how Hip Hop deals with it tbh, god knows country music wouldn’t.

  • Flea

    The south takes an L every single time one of those nursery rhyme ass niggas who don’t sell anything run their mouths about running shit.

    • Rmfag

      Or letting Mylie appropriated flat ass twerk in everything.

  • King Kredible

    Waka Flocka isn’t from the South and neither is Trinidad James. They’re just jocking and it’s embarrasing and disrespectful to the real cats who put the South on.

    • Rmfag

      Why is it tolerated?

  • Reblogged this on HUEY mix wit RILEY.

  • John Q. Public

    I miss Pimp C

    • Rmfag

      He had the tastiest dick.
      Tasted like fried chicken dripped in buttermilk hot sauce and purple drank.

  • Rmfag

    Can these dumb AF, smart dumb, making young BM look bad niggas STFU? Watch one day Ima start biting these dudes dicks off instead of sucking them.

  • All black men are rapists

    the south dont run music the white man runs music.the white man tells niggas how to act dress and dictates what negative stereotype will be the flavor of the month.the white man knows that the southern coons love coonish music so thats whats hot

    • Rmfag

      Is that a vajayjay in your photo?
      Please don’t show that here, we personally don’t care for it.

  • brotha_man

    • Rmfag

      Neither would Taeyang or Feeldog tbh.

  • Its true. Because Flocka said it.

  • TimeWillTellu1

    It will shift to a new region soon. Just wondering where?

      there’s a huge difference between what waka said and what tj said……waka isn’t disrespecting anybody or singling out on a city on some “what the fucc happened to y’all shit”…maino has no reason to respond to this.

      • dbfromdc

        WHAT ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT WAKA SAID THE SOUTH MUSIC IS BETTER THAN ALL MUSIC INCLUDING NYC,SO HE AGREES WITH TRINIDAD, READ THE POST FOOL, AND MAINO KNOWS BETTER TO TRY TO RECORD A PHONE CONVERSATION WITH A NIGGA LIKE WAKA BECAUSE MAINO KNOWS WAKA WOULD NOT STAN FOR THE B.S HE WAS TALKING TO TRINIDAD !!!!!!!!!!!TYPICAL BULLY SHIT

  • hoeyuno

    The south has always been innovators in all types of music.

    I could say a lot about what this man said, but I’ll just say this little bit; Wakka make a song where you make sense from beginning to end without screaming your name. Make an album where the parodies aren’t better than the actual songs. (Short bus shawty killed you), And stop being fake. Your own mother aired you out saying you were from the north, but act like you’re from the south. Right now I feel no one is ruling anything because most of what is released is fake, corporate made, cookie cutter music with no soul in any of it.

  • king

    Beyonce from Houston she is dominating the music industry all by herself so south is definitely ruling things

  • Romello81

    It is true whether you want to agree with it or not. The South is running hip hop and have for some years now. When the East and West coast had the rap game locked all they did was beef with each other. The South collaborates together to get that money.
