In the 2000’s Miami was crushing the rap scene. You had Rick Ross and his corpulent, larger than life raps carry the city on his back. You also had a voracious rhymer in the form of Ace Hood, who’s monstrous presence instilled a certain air of confidence in the city. Veterans like Trick Daddy and Trina also proved that they were indeed staples in the city by occasionally showcasing their skills on the mic. Now, in 2016, with Ross and Khaled appearing to be the only artists breathing life into the city, is the talent pool all but gone? After originally being a hotbed for the likes of Lil Wayne, Fat Joe, and more rappers, it appears the luster is gone.
