    Who's heard of them? They're a new group of NYC... I just found out about them this past weekend, but they've been around since early spring of this year. It looks like New York is back... ie., Action Bronson, A$AP Rocky, Joey BadA$$, Flatbush Zombies, Tylahvell$$, Troy Ave, and now The Underachievers. I downloaded their mixtape, Indigoism, but I haven't listened to it yet... however, check out this single and tell me what you think. One

    Yeah, they steppin' up to the plate... but I think regionalism is dead in hip hop, though... with all this cross-pollination going on and world-wide collabarations and influences, there are no distinct regional sounds or identities anymore.

    I think NY artists will always have glimpses of the NY flavor in their music/art..

    Whether it be style, sound, or subject matter...You can take the person out the neighborhood, but can't take the neighborhood out the person..

    So whether I'm listening to A$AP Rocky or French or Joey or Action or Dipset I always catch a lil NY in there regardless..

    But you're right...NY emcees don't hold on to that NY title/identity anymore,,,but some of these underground inspired heads like Pro Era attempt too..mite get lost in all the cross-pollination like you said

    This is okay... I think Joey Bada$$ is better... my favorite out of Flipmode Squad other than Busta and Rah Digga was probably Baby Sham, because of his vocal presence... Roc Marciano can kill it when he wants to, though.

    A$AP Rocky is so "southern," though... lol... and he stay biggin' up Pimp C, which is cool... I like him, but I think he has way more southern influence than New York influence.

    The first NY cat to really start bending his style towards other regions was Biggie, I think... so he sorta set that trend... then Jay Z went there on Vol. 2 with "Can I Get a..."... now, everybody's doing it... 50 was very popular in the south for that reason... but you had other artists before them who had East Coast rhyming styles, too, like Souls of Mischief, Ras Kass, Saafir, Pharcyde... I remember when Little Brother came out, Phonte sounded exactly like Prodigy of Mobb Deep.

    I like the retro rappers like Joey Bada$$, because he's got that old school heart, so it's coming full circle.
