'The South Got Something To Say!' - Andre 3000, 1995 at the Source Awards.
The 'NoLanta' deck pays homage to the two southern cities that most notably delivered southern hip hop to popular culture:New Orleans&Atlanta. Inspired by the wisdom and business acumen of men like J Prince of Houston, Atlanta and New Orleans gave rise to artists like Outkast, Mystikal and Mia X. And to business men like Jermaine Dupri and Master P. These powerful artists were brave enough to rework hip hop in their own cultural image and to take the culture to another level.
