Why The Midwest Should Be The Most Feared In Music

As I look around and see all the artists that come out of New York, Atlanta, Miami, LA, Houston, New Orleans, i dont see many that are coming out of cities like Cleveland, Milwaukee, Minneapolis, St Louis, Kansas City, Indianapolis, Louisville, hell, not even Chicago.  My question is why?
A lot of people say its because the midwest doesn’t have a distinct style.  Well, we have adapted styles from all over and in most cases, we have mastered what hip hop should be.  We have the conscious style down, we have the eclectic style to a T, we can crunk it out with the best and we gun-clap even harder than cats do in NYC or LA.
Considering that the midwest buys a ton of music cd’s and really helps fuel the music industry’s bottom line, we should be given some chances to make a mark in the industry.  Record labels, set up shop in some of these cities, you’ll be surprised how many artists like Common, Kanye, Nelly, Eminem, Bone Thugs & Harmony, etc you’ll find.
