Baltimore is the biggest city in Md. It's a place where everybody knows everybody. The only place where the weather can be 100 degrees & 100% humidity lol.
Only 3 other places come close: Detroit goes hard, Philly is our brothers and Jersey is just real with it.

Baltimore=resilience. To make it out of Baltimore is something to brag about. Even people from the projects make it everyday from NY and LA because they are already set up from birth to succeed. Baltimoreans have to truly fight to make it and that's what makes us so resilient.
