This #MTownTour will take you across the city and feature some of the prominent rappers from that part of Memphis. Had to start it off with South Memphis, because EVERYBODY was throwing up the Funkytown sign in the 90’s. In the mid 90’s they pretty much ran Memphis rap and SPV (South Park Village) was yelled in so many songs. You didn’t hear too much “flossing” and “balling” in South Memphis raps. You mainly heard about struggle and….powder lol. South Memphis (mainly Playa Fly) got the whole city on that bay (powder caine).

South Memphis dudes were the ones getting stealing all the fresh Nike stuff off the train. I remember when whole high school basketball teams were wearing unreleased Pennys & Jordans months before they were released.

Enjoy this mix of South Memphis music past & present. And before someone asks, no this does not include anyone from Whitehaven aka Blackhaven aka BHZ. The dividing line is Brooks Road. While the Haven is on the southern part of Memphis geographically on a map, it’s considered a completely seperate hood from South Memphis. I’ll be doing mixes from them, North Memphis & Orange Mound.
