Waka Flocka had hip hop fans trading opinions after he said the ATL has been reigning in rap longer than any other coast.

A debate has been launched, thanks to Waka Flocka. The rapper has often taken to social media to share brief tidbits of motivation, inspiration, or just to share a few thoughts about life, in general. Just a few hours ago, he posted a message on Instagram that got tongues wagging. "Atlanta been running rap longer than any coast!! ," Waka wrote in the text image.

In the caption, Waka added, "Let's debate this," and readers certainly did. Many hip hop fans were quick to point out that rap originated in New York while die-hard fans of the ATL rap reign agreed with Waka's remarks. It's undeniable that Atlanta has become hip hop's hotspot as artists continue to come out of the Peach State's capital. T.I., Ludacris, Gucci Mane,, The-Dream, Jermaine Dupri, , Jazze Pha, , Lil Yachty, , Soulja Boy, Childish Major, Lil Nas X, , , 21 Savage, Xscape, , Mulatto, and a host of others have made names for themselves in Hotlanta and beyond.

Hip hop and rap fans , but we're curious as to how our HNHH readers feel about this one. Do you agree or disagree with Waka Flocka?
