Southern hip hop, also known as Southern rap, South Coast hip hop, or Dirty South, is a regional genre of American hip hop music that emerged in the Southern United States, especially in AtlantaNew OrleansHoustonMemphis, and Miami—the five of which constitute the "Southern Network" in rap music.[2][3][4]

The music was a reaction to the 1980s flow of hip hop culture from New York City and the Los Angeles area and can be considered a third major American hip hop genre, after East Coast hip hop and West Coast hip hop.[5] Many early Southern rap artists released their music independently or on mixtapes after encountering difficulty securing record-label contracts in the 1990s.[6] By the early 2000s, many Southern artists had attained national success, and as the decade went on, both mainstream and underground varieties of Southern hip-hop became among the most popular and influential of the entire genre.
