Best MC in the South?

Not enough blogs show love to Southern MC's, myself included. Many people write off Southern rap as gimmicky and not authentic. This can't be more untrue.

Southern MC's have done a lot for the game and brought a whole new twist to this thing we call Hip Hop. So who is the best MC in the south?

First people that come to mind are Outkast. Both Andre and Big Boi can pretty much step up to any MC from any coast and hold their own. What about Scarface? If you're not familiar with the Geto Boys and what they did for the game you better ask somebody. How 8 Ball and MJG? Living legends in my book. And last but not least UGK. RIP to Pimp C. Bun B been holding it down.

I almost forgot Cee-Lo from Goodie Mob. He sings too! Gnarls Barkley is revolutionary music. Matter of fact my vote goes to the whole Dungeon family. They're like the Wu-Tang of the south.

I must give honarable mention to the new school. Cats like T.I. and Ludacris can really hold it down on the mic.

So what you think? Who's the bezt MC in the south? Drop some comments. And oh yeah, dont forget to check me out at Peace

bun b of course, 3 stacks and big boi, devin the dude, phonte and rapper big pooh, the clipse (they're originally from new york, so they don't necessarily count), scarface is a must. i hate to say it, but lil wayne is pretty good. his material from right before the carter 3 (ie. drought 3, the drought is over, etc) is actually quite incredible, even better than the actual c3.

the cunninlynguists down from the street from me, definitely!

but i got dre over anyone period. definitely phonte in the discussion. dude's absolutely ridiculous every time he touches a track.

yea i forgot about lil brother and phonte. for some reason i dont put em that down south category even though they rep the south. i dunno maybe its because of their beats?

My all time favorites are Cee-Lo and Eightball, the best now would probably be Z-Ro and Killer Mike. (Jay Electronica's great too, but he hasn't dropped quite enough to be in this second discussion. Same with Playboy Tre.)

You're right I left out Jay Electronica. Definitely one of hottest MC's out right now.
