Focusing on the music from the 2000s and on, the hip hop scene in Miami-Dade and Broward counties has developed not only regionally, but nationally. Artists from Florida are finding unprecedented recognition and this work is to detail themselves as Floridan artists and their works. To detail a few who have changed the game and put Miami on the map, there is Rick Ross and Trick Daddy since the early 2000s. Now at large, there is Kodak Black, Denzel Curry, the late XXXTentacion and others. I plan on explaining who these people are, where they come from and why they are important to developing South Florida hip hop for years to come.
