Dirty South Playas
by Mosi Reeves | July 20, 2014
All the players came from far and wide across the hip-hop map. They emerged in the mid-'90s when folks got sick of penning lyrics of crack and murder — or at least were tired of being pigeonholed — and created personas as men of leisure and wealth, fluent in the language of success amid increased mainstream credibility. The West Coast had its shot callers; the East Coast had its Mafioso. And the South had its players, painting worlds of bourbon and 'lacs and space age pimpin'. Don't be a playa hata: Dive into the money flow of Dirty South big ballin'.
