Ludacris shits on TI. TI is better than most southern rappers but theres loads of rappers i think are better than him. Outkast, Bun B, Scarface etc...

'Face is the King of the South like Rakim is the King of NY. In 1991, I'd agree, but it's 2007, and in a week and a half 2008, get over it. TI is the king, Bun B is close, Luda is the closest, and Andre and Big Boi might actually be the top team, but TI is the King. The only platinum rapper from the South, and I'd say the most relevent. So I go TI.


Nah, that's just wrong

Luda and Jeezy did 1mil as well. Plus Ludas sold loads more than TI and had more top ten hits so if we looking at it like that then Ludas king.

To me it's either Face (old school) or Chamillionaire (from the younger generation). Not a TI fan.

I'm not really sure who's the king, but Luda is one of the - if not the, most versatile rapper from the dirty dirty

bty y'all, T.I. is the only southern rapper platinum in 2007. Luda  & Jeezy didn't release discs this year.

I don't see how any new rapper (i.e. T.I., as he's mentioned in this poll) can fuck with Scarface when it comes to the lame "King of the South" title. Does anyone of you guys even know what a king is? :-\

that's you're opinion, but T.I. ain't really "new". 5 albums deep with a 6 on the way already, is not a "new" artist. Shit, Face only has 8 solos that HE released. If it wasn't for the all b.s releases they'd be close in number of solo discs. But Face IS the greatest ever from the south. Like someone said though, he's not active enough as of right now to be called "the king of the south" in 2007.

I don't care how much albums they have released, but I do know that Scarface has been around a lot longer than T.I. and paved a way for T.I.

A real life king is usually king for the biggest part of his life. Having that in mind, for me Scarface has the crown.

Not necessarily. All that really means is that Face is the greatest KING of all time, but T.I. is currently holding the crown. Doesn't mean he is a "better" king than face was. But then again this whole "king" talk was never mentioned by anyone until T.I. said he was. And when he said, nobody really called em out on it, therefore making him King in a lot of ppl's minds.

How do u define relevant? If thats based on album sales then you might as well still consider MC Hammer the King of the West, i'm almost certain he still has the highest selling album for a westcoast artist. If your talking the combination of lyricist, entrepreneur, album sales,outright talent, and(excluding Scarface-who took himself out of the running) longevity TI can't even see Ludacris. And I am someone who didn't even like Luda when he came out.

Yeah I am a big Luda fan. He has been quiet for a bit since Release Therapy dropped, doing the CEO thing a blazing a couple guest appearance spots. Definitely when he is on his game I put him at the top.

Ludas one of the few new southern acts thats seen as lyrically powerful as an east coast rapper but got as much swagger as a west/southern artist.

as soon as I saw the title of this thread, I thought to myself, "wouldn't it be better to just title it 'who doesn't think Scarface is King of the South?'"

Let's face the facts here.  Scarface has been around since the 80s.  He's not only THE pioneer of Southern hip-hop (along with the rest of The Geto Boys,) he's one of the pioneers of hip-hop, period.  T.I. comes from the next generation of rappers.  There's no way he will ever take the place of an OG like Scarface, whether or not he "claimed" king status.  Face didn't claim it probably because he doesn't give a fuck.  He knows he's the shit, so why bother making claims like that?  That covers the status aspect.

Lyrically, no one from the South is fucking with Face.  In fact, I'd dare say he's still one of the best lyricists out there in all of hip-hop.  Factor in all of the classic albums he's made over the years, and the impact he's had on hip-hop, and he's one of the greatest rappers of all time.  Do you think T.I. will ever be considered a legend like Face is now?  I don't.  I think T.I. is tight, but he's not on the same level as someone like Scarface.

I'd also mention Jermaine Dupri as a "King of the South."

damn, that's a crazy statement!  yeah, i agree.  i think TI is really dope though, and as far as commercial sales, he's definitely on top right now.
