About the Conference
The DIRTY SOUTHEAST Conference is an ode to the dirty south. The dirty south is a blanket term for the regional genre of American Hip Hop music that emerged in the Southern United States and the Southeastern United States, especially in Atlanta & New Orleans. The music was a reaction to the 1980s flow of boom bap Hip-Hop culture from New York City and the Los Angeles area and can be considered the third major American Hip Hop scene, alongside East Coast Hip Hop and West Coast Hip Hop. The DIRTY SOUTHEAST Conference celebrates the history of this Hip Hop subgenre with the new Dirty South sound for the new generation.
US States in the DIRTY SOUTHEAST Conference: Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Alabama, Mississippi & Louisiana. See the NEBA League Map.
