Complex says: Although Nas claimed otherwise, many felt that when he titled his eighth album Hip Hop Is Dead he was blaming the South for killing it since they were the most popular region at the time. So despite being more of a perceived shot than anything else, many Southern rappers felt slighted by Nas. Young Jeezy famously flipped out over Nas' remarks at a radio station, while Big Boi complained to MTV, and Ludacris even went so far as to wear a t-shirt that read, "HIP HOP AINT DEAD...IT LIVES IN THE SOUTH." Seriously, if we were those guys, we would have just brought up the fact that Killer Mike said it first.
