Last night while performing a concert in Brooklyn, Atlanta rapper Trinidad James made the claim that the south runs New York. The statement has caused quite a stir among hip-hop fans, with some defending James while others are calling for his head. Despite the controversy surrounding it, it isn't the first bold claim we've heard from a rapper this year; a handful of MCs have made immodest statements about their statures -- as well as the statures of their cities -- within hip-hop recently. We decided to compile the boldest of those claims and put them in a list.
