minneapolis/st paul. the land of brown babies with white moms.
the police are notorious for racism.
cost of living = cheap.
winter = physically and mentally expensive.
but this city probably ranks high on the progressive scale.
gentrification is here as it is everywhere.
probably nowhere near as bad as baltimore though.
You make a trip to MinneSnowta you can experience some quality underground hiphop. Minneapolis has multiple locations where shows go down, uptown minne is swanky types of clubs and downtown is more of a warehouse district. Minnesota has been cultivating HipHop and R&B since the mid to late 80’s. I suggest anything by Rhymesayers Entertainment but also some other groups like Guardians of Balance or Just.Live or Meta or Tek.
