The New York hip-hop scene has been the target of quite a bit of criticism for not properly repping its own artists; Trinidad James went so far as to claim that the South runs NY rap.
Queens rapper N.O.R.E. spoke on what he believes is the root of the problem: New York media doesn't do nearly enough to support local artists.
He also touches on the problem of the media wanting the rap scene to be the same everywhere, whether it be Miami, New York, or L.A.
