Because of the great emcees and producers that come from there.
The Preface & The Tronic were hands down my favorite releases of '08,
both albums were produced by Black Milk (a great producer I love his drums!).
Both of these guys are affiliated with Slum Village so you knows its all good music.
eLZhi is on my top 5 Dead or Alive MCs, every bar on The Preface is FIRE! best lyricism ive heard in soo long! The Tronic is just as great! The production on both albums is amzn!
Favorite Tracks: Save Ya feat. T3, Talking In My Sleep, Losing Out feat. Royce da 5'9", The Matrix feat. Pharoah Monch, Sean Price, DJ Premier
