MuchMusic spoke to Bubba Sparxxx who performed at Atlanta’s Midtown Music Festival last week. Bubba says that rappers in the South have been taking some risks that rappers elsewhere haven’t. “Honestly I think that people in the South aren’t scared to take some of the risks maybe in terms of being creative,” said Sparxxx. “Like if you look at Andre from Outkast, he’s certainly not scared to gamble and to take chances within the music, and Cee-Lo if ya’ll getting that yet up there. We’re just not scared to take chances and we don’t necessarily get caught up in how people perceive us, just like me taking my shirt off on stage. This is me this is how God made me, I’m going to ride it on out like this.”
